    About Concera Media

    Concera Media is a Kansas City based Internet marketing agency founded in 2009.

    We build and manage interactive WordPress-powered marketing websites that integrate your offline sales and marketing efforts with your online channels: web sites, social media, mobile apps, email marketing and search engines. We are structured as a virtual agency, meaning that for each project, we bring together local experts in other fields – design, ad sales, direct mail, copywriting – whatever the strategy requires. Staying nimble lets us deliver great service for less than a large agency.

    Our Work

    At Concera, we have been lucky to work with some awesome companies and strive to maintain long-term relationships based on value and trust. Please let us know if you’d like to contact someone within the organizations below and we’ll send contact information.

    Appendix – Concera White Glove Service

    Concera provides the best combination of support services that allow you to focus on your business, not on WordPress. Our priority is to provide awesome customer service, technical knowledge and peace of mind that your site is running smoothly. Help, if you need it, is only a call or email away. All ongoing services are billed on the first of the month and can be cancelled at anytime.

    Fee – $372/month

    $150/monthly base fee + $212/monthly for 2 hours per month of dedicated support

    Note: Hosting is an optional additional fee determined based on hosting needs.

    Gurus on Call:

    We know you have questions. Our white-glove service gives you unlimited call and email support for any fix that takes less than 15 minutes. Maybe you need coaching, or Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) tweak or advice on a new plugin. We’ve got you covered. We don’t charge by the call or email, but, if a request requires more time, we’ll give you a heads up with an hourly quote or a project fee to get the work done. If you need extra help on a regular basis, we’ll reserve hours for you at 15% discount from our usual hourly rate. Please note that membership and commerce system support are an additional fee – we’ll need to know the scope of support needed and we’ll get you a quote. Call support is available Monday to Friday, 9-4 CST.

    Monthly WordPress Core and Plugin Updates

    This is the number one defense against malware attacks and system failures. Before an update, we verify a current backup is in place. After an update, we verify that there are no issues. This is a premium white-glove service where a WordPress expert who knows your site’s setup performs the update and verifies its success.

    Backups and Recovery

    WordPress-specific backups are setup to save your content (nightly) through our hosting service, your host or using a premium plugin. If the site goes down because of a software or database issue or a malicious attack, we¹ll get it back up and running within 24 hours. No hassles.

    Security Monitoring and Hardening

    As a first line of defense, we encourage our clients to host websites on our Concera hosting platform or another WordPress-managed hosting solution. Migration to our hosting is free with a six-month service plan purchase. We also evaluate all sites that we manage to determine if additional security plugins are needed to protect you from specific malicious behavior. We also monitor the health of your system daily.

    Up-time Monitoring

    We monitor your site every five minutes to make sure it’s there when you are not. If it’s not, we send you a notification and follow up with the host if we need to.

    Quarterly Status Meetings

    Websites are never static. You’ve got plans and we need to make sure that the site keeps up with them. We like to meet (in person, phone or Skype/Hangout) with clients quarterly to make sure everything is on track and provide recommendations.

    Monthly Activity Reports

    We provide an email with a summary of updates and security activity for each WordPress install. If you’re a SEO or Google Analytics client, we’ll integrate those reports into a simple, printable Executive Summary for you.

    Premium Plugin/Theme Support and Licensing

    The best way to keep your WordPress website running smoothly is to only use the most-trusted & best-supported premium plugins and themes. We test, purchase, pay the fees, install and maintain these for you. What’s included is defined at the time we launch your website or initiate management services.

    Cancel Anytime. No Long-term Contracts. You have nothing to lose.
