Website maintenance costs can vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of the website. For a corporate business website, basic maintenance such as updates to plugins, security patches, and regular backups may cost anywhere from ₦20,000 to ₦100,000 per month.
On the other hand, websites with more complex features and ongoing development may require more substantial amounts for maintenance per month.
For example, if a website requires new features and functionality to be added as part of the basic maintenance routine could involve an additional cost for web design services or programming. Also, if the website is running an eCommerce platform such as Magento then specialized services may be necessary for upkeep such as database optimization or server configuration.
Beyond those services that are considered “standard” when it comes to website maintenance, there are other elements that can also factor into the overall cost. These might include consulting services for search engine optimization (SEO) and online marketing/advertising campaigns; custom graphic design work; content creation/editing; setting up analytics tracking systems; monitoring user activity and engagement metrics; improving usability/accessibility; and regularly testing performance across browsers and mobile devices.
Prices for these tasks can range from a few thousand Naira to hundreds of thousands, depending on the scope of work involved.
In some cases, companies may opt to have a retainer agreement with their web development team in order to ensure regular maintenance is taken care of without having to pay for each task individually each time. This usually saves money in the long run by allowing for bulk discounts or bundled pricing options that offer multiple services at once at reduced rates (e.g., monthly fees based on site size).
Overall it’s important for businesses to understand their budget needs when it comes to website maintenance so they can make informed decisions about which tasks should be handled internally vs. outsourced externally.
