Your Website Buddy TM

12 month subscription to turn your website into an effective marketing tool

Your Website Buddy logo

Did you set up your website and call it done - only to realize it's not quite fulfilling its purpose as your most reliable marketing tool?

Your Website Buddy™ is a 12 month subscription - a full-year plan to support you in refreshing and updating your website. It includes monthly emails with bite-sized steps to take for the month + printables to keep you on task.

 

The cost? $197/year.

 

I built this subscription as a way to help small business owners keep up with their own websites. It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the things that need to be done to keep a website tuned up and working well. And I want to help you keep up with your website and make it easy! Or at least easy to know what to do!

 

After six years of helping people build their websites, I want to help them USE those websites to their full potential!

 

Your Website Buddy™ Features:

*I’ll pop into your inbox each month with a list of bite-sized steps to take for the month and a handy printable pdf.

*Occasionally, I’ll send additional emails for time-sensitive things. Those will be on an as-needed basis.

*Finally, I'll send a Monthly Accountability Check-in email and form you can fill out to schedule your website update time with yourself. There may be prizes!

 

Areas covered:

  • taking a baseline backup of your site
  • reviewing your home, about, services, and contact pages
  • evaluating your navigation
  • checking your links
  • updating your calls to action
  • reviewing your social proof

 

Your Website Buddy™ is $197/year for the monthly (and extra) emails, printables, and accountability check-ins!

Your subscription renews yearly.

 

Who it's for: people who maintain their own websites to keep it up to date and working for their business.

 

Who it's NOT for:

  • People who hire someone else to maintain their site (although you could purchase these reminders for a VA to work on your website for you if you like)
  • People who are in the process of building their website - it's not designed to help you build your site because it takes a year to get through all the reminders. Check out the free Website Audit tips instead for resources you can access immediately.

 

 

14 Day money-back guarantee: cancel within 14 days and get a full refund!

Accountability

There's an accountability check in survey for you to let me know how you're doing. You can use them to hold yourself accountable to getting your tasks done each month!

The surveys will be coming out soon and are included as part of your original fee, no extra charge.

Occasionally, I'll offer prizes for people who use the accountability check-in forms - and the information will be in your YWB Support Google Doc!

  • Refreshing the different pages of your site
  • Updating basic SEO
  • Beginning analytics

  • Services Page
  • Navigation

  • Social Proof

Will this work for my site on my platform?

Yes! Your Website Buddy™ is not dependent on the website platform.

You can use WordPress.com, WordPress.org, Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, Shopify, Showit, Webflow, or other platforms.

As long as you can access your site and make changes, you can use this tool to help you update your site.

What if I have a one-page site?

All of the topics will apply in a more limited way. Your Home Page is not separate from your About Page, for example.

But you can use each topic to review that part of your website and keep it up-to-date.

It will still work - you're just likely to be done quicker each month!

Can I use this with more than one site?

Yes, it is not specific to a particular site, so you can use the tips for as many sites as you like, no additional subscription needed

What if I get behind?

You can't get behind. Your Website Buddy™ is intended to help you with website tasks, not to give you one more thing to do on your list.

If there's something you don't want to or can't do, let it go or put it on your "later" list.

Do I have to know how to code?

Not unless your website is hand-coded. All you need to know how to do is edit your site on the platform you have.

If you can add or edit content, you should be able to do most of the tasks.

The exceptions might be editing your website header or footer or website navigation. And if you can't edit those, that's perfectly ok.

Are there any other fees?

No. $197 gets you the full year subscription.

I also may offer additional modules or special offers to Your Website Buddy Subscribers at an additional fee, but those would be separate items.

The Story of Your Website Buddy TM

woman in front of an old International truck

But where did this idea come from?

In 2022, I was in a @cowgirlsovercoffee Business Track strategy call, and the result of the discussion was an idea for a product that would remind you of what to do to keep your website up-to-date every month.

The idea behind Your Website Buddy is that -
if I could remind you what to do every month to refresh your site -
without you getting overwhelmed or trying to fix everything all at once -
it would be a win for everybody.

Your audience would be happier, you'd be less stressed, and the search engines would be more likely to show your site.

Your website could be the marketing tool you'd like it to be rather than a business card on the web.

I LOVED that idea and started building it. A couple months later, Your Website Buddy™ launched, with a handful of subscribers.

Ever since, I've been building and growing the subscription as a resource for people who manage their own small business websites!

For the small business owner keeping your website up-to-date:
