BPN – YOUR PERSONAL GUIDE TO A WORRY-FREE WEBSITE
Keep your time free for the things that are more important to your business by letting BPN take care of all the technical, behind the scenes work of creating and maintaining a WordPress website.
The 4 services needed to build a website can be compared to building a house. Some people have the time and talent to build a house/website all on their own. However, most people need to hire one or more companies to help out with the project. BPN can provide all or any combination of what you need to build and launch your website.
Web development would be like an architectural blueprint that defines what goes where and how the house is wired, plumbing, appliances. It centers around planning and configuring functionality and is often referred to as the back-end of a website. BPN can develop for many types of functionalities. Examples: complex forms, custom post types, calendar-scheduling, e-commerce, secure and restricted membership content, marketing, and analytics.
Web design would be like the decor of the house – the paint colors, the type of flooring, the curtains, furniture, etc. This is what your users will see and interact with. This styling work is often referred to as the front-end of a website. BPN will take your ideas and create an attractive, mobile-friendly and easy to navigate website that will be an effective way to attract new business for you.
Just like you need to give someone your address to find your house – you need a domain name for people to find your website (.com .org .net .me .co .biz ….). You buy and register a domain name as a way to tell the world your site is open and ready for visitors. BPN provides domain registration, transfer, re-direct, or mapping.
If a domain name is the address of your house, hosting would be the house itself – it is the computer server where your website data lives. BPN provides high-speed cloud hosting for websites of all sizes and is affordable, reliable, secure, and scalable.
*The general price increases in relation to the complexity of features and size of the site overall.
This reflects the additional resources needed to support complex features and/or larger sites.

BPN stands for business process network. A modern website can do much more than provide brochure style information. It can be a central part of bringing the network of processes within your business or organization together in an optimized, efficient workflow. Web design is both aesthetics and functionality. BPN helps explain my approach to web design, and it also happens to be my initials

The need to hire someone to maintain your website depends on how much time and/or interest you have in doing the work yourself. The tasks are not difficult but they do take a little bit of time each day or at least each week. Compare it to the chore of taking out the trash. You can do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you but if no one does it; problems are going to arise.
Having BPN maintain your site will save time and provide peace of mind from knowing your website is protected and performing at an optimal level.
Promptly and consistently applying updates to WordPress, plugins, and themes
Having frequent and reliable backups is essential so that when something goes wrong, your website can be restored.
With ever-changing threats, regular malware scans can help identify any malicious code.
Receiving an email notification if your website goes down helps you get back online quickly. A problem quickly found can be quickly solved.
Having a WordPress specialist regularly inspect your site ensures your site is functioning at an optimal level.
A discounted retainer rate on additional work on your website. Examples: adding a page, adding functionality, a site redesign, styling changes, troubleshooting/debugging

The Bi-monthly Plus plan is a great value. Your site will be well cared for and a lot can be done in 3 hours.
If you find you are using more than 3 hours each month (or have an upcoming project), you can always upgrade. Likewise, if you are not using your hours (or the project is done), you can always downgrade.
I have been pleased with the user-friendly approach Brian has toward website design. We are a busy office and have had delays in getting information to him. He has been kind and understanding about our challenges while he has been professional and thorough in his approach.Betsy McBride
Always responsive and works until he gets it to please me as a customer even if I have some old ideas which anchor me.Terry Barber
We are thankful for Brian’s creativity and out of the box thinking in helping us design our information hub. He is quick to respond and patient with our additions and changes.Nadia Vanderkuip
Each project is unique and the build time depends on size and complexity, however, most sites can be completed in less than one month. If you have your content ready, a basic website can be completed within one week.
Payment can be made using any major debit, credit card or PayPal. Payments are processed by PayPal or Stripe. No payment data is stored by BPN-services.
No, it is not required as most of the work is done within a WordPress admin login. However, it is a better value to make the move, since free hosting is included in all service packages. Also, some troubleshooting issues can be on the hosting side so having your hosting with BPN can save time by having only one place to call for all your website needs and I can address issues quicker, without the delay of waiting for a response from another hosting company’s support ticket. BPN can help you with the technical side of completing a hosting transfer.
Yes, BPN offers a 60-day money-back guarantee. For any BPN service package, I will be working hard every month to earn your money, so if at any time you are dissatisfied, or I feel like I haven’t served you as well as I could, I will always make it right.
Depending on the time of day and day of the week, most messages/requests are responded to within a couple hours to let you know that I have received it, work has started, and an expected timeframe for resolution. Quick response and communication are priority commitments for me. If my response time is ever more than 24 hours – the service package fee for that month will be refunded.
BPN service packages are pay-as-you-go. You are in full control of your subscription, and you can cancel at any time.
