"I have engaged Kicking Pixels to look after my website on a monthly Managed programme. This is one of the best decisions I have made. Matt has fixed all the back end issues of my website to make it operate faster, sorted out Virus protection, and also provides a Monthly updates service. All this for the price of a daily cup of Barista coffee - best value ever."

The inclusion of content update time is to take care of adhoc website updates on your behalf and can include adding a new page, updating copy, adding blog posts, adding images, adding a contact form, small design improvements, or pretty much anything else that can be handled within the time allocation for your plan.
We'll make sure your content updates conform to SEO best practice, that any links are applied correctly, we also keep an eye on layout issues (particularly across different browser sizes), and we provide an extra pair of eyes to avoid embarrassing content errors.
If you need more time than your monthly plan includes, you can purchase additional blocks of time as needed. For larger project updates we can quote on a case-by-case basis.
Content time is there for you to use on your website every month. It reserves your place in our queue and our resources, therefore time does not rollover for our care plans.
