Starter Identity Website
Identity Website Plans
Our Identity websites are built around our StudioTask website content management system. StudioTask is designed to be very easy to use to make updates and add features like services, projects, brands, and much more. If you can use a document editor, then you will be able to update your website.
An integral part of our StudioTask website is the managed active hosting platform. Our Identity websites also require StudioTask hosting.
Standard vs Premium vs Industry Themes
All our Identity website packages come with predesigned and styled website theme. Each theme is updated with client colors, usually to match the logo. The Premium themes include many extra enhancements and elements to make them even more luxurious. The Industry themes have all been specifically designed for a particular industry. For example, we have themes for Security companies, Home Theater specialists, Commercial Integrators, etc...
StudioTask Managed Active Hosting
Most "standard" website hosting platforms are little more than shared storage solutions for your supplied files. What happens to your files is your problem!!!
Our StudioTask Managed Active Hosting is much, much more...
Managed Active: We ensure that our servers and websites run the latest code and make the necessary updates all at no extra charge. We also actively monitor all our websites and personally address any issues that many arise.
Technology Platform: We start with a blank dedicated, high-performance server on which we only load those services that are necessary to run your website optimally. Our servers only host our clients, whose reputation we carefully monitor.
Geographic Hosting: While the entire world is connected via the Internet, there is a distinct advantage to hosting your website geographically closer to your physical location. Distance still affects speed and latency. We have 11 server locations around the world with more coming.
Enhanced Security: We have multiple layers of security built into our hosting servers that actively and continuously monitors everything to ensure that your website remains healthy and online.
Combining multiple firewall levels with redundant daily site backups ensures maximum site safety
Scalable shared and dedicated servers with all solid state drives and the latest technology CPUs
Worldwide geolocated 40 Gbps fiber connected data centers with built-in DDoS protection
Our servers automatically detect and mitigate Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks on your website
We offer 2 add-on options with our hosting plans.
Every month we run several of our technical and SEO tools to check the overall health of your website and provide you with a report.
The report will list any issues that have appeared during the past month. These issues are often items like a manufacturer video that was replaced or removed, or possibly a dead link in an article. In most instances you fix these issues yourself, or you can request a quote.
With the maintenance add-on, we not only run the monthly health check, but will also perform any necessary updates.
Optional Local SEO Plans
We offer several SEO plans for you to choose from, but no plan is included by default.
Startup Plan: With this plan we run a full website review and optimization when the website goes live. This includes writing the Title and Description meta tags, H1 & H2 titles, checking the code and optimizing it if necessary, and setup of a Google Search Console account. We perform a monthly website check and monitor the Google Search Console account for issues. You will receive a monthly report.
Local Rank Plan: Includes all of the above, but also adds in both Google Business Profile and Bing Business Places account reviews each month.
Local Leader Plan: Includes all of the above and most of the Local Starter SEO plan. The price is based on the number of services for which you want your site optimized, monitored, and promoted. For example: Home Theater, Lighting Control, and Automated Shades would be 3 services.
Local Dominators Plan: This adds an equal number of Google Ad Campaigns as services selected. The actual spend with Google is not included and will be charged directly to your credit card.
Website Image and Content Licenses
Most of our website designs and packages include the majority of images and much of the starter content. The following are the license details:
Rize-Supplied Images: All images are the exclusive property of Rize Marketing Company unless a specific paid contract has purchased the images for your website.
Manufacturer-Supplied Images: Before we are able to use any manufacturer-supplied images, you must inform us that you have licenses to these images as a dealer for said manufacturer.
Customer-Supplied Images: Any images supplied by our clients remain the exclusive property of our clients.
Rize Starter Content: All content will remain the exclusive property of Rize Marketing Company unless there is a specific paid contract for the custom writing of the content for your website.
Rize Custom Written Content: Custom written content that has been purchased is the exclusive property of the customer.
Client-Supplied Content: Any content supplied by our clients remain the exclusive property of our clients.
Duplicate Content: Any client supplied content that is flagged as duplicate content is usually an indicator that the content has been copied. In these instances we may request that our client supplies proof that they have a license for said content.
Copyright is retained by Rize Marketing Company on all design work including words, content, images, ideas, visuals, and illustrations unless specifically released in writing and after all costs have been settled.
Identity Website Process
After your order is placed, we will set up your project, assign a developer, and add your project to our schedule. You will receive an email with details on the next steps and a link to your profile and any additional questionnaires that will help us deliver your project. You can also login into My Projects to view your projects status and progress.
Connect With Developer
Your developer will reach out to request details for your website, including your logo (vector files preferred), brands, services, etc if you have not already supplied them in your profile or questionnaires.
Website Diagram Layout Approval
Your developer will create a finalized website layout diagram per the project contract. You will receive a request to review and approve the diagram. Any updates and changes to the structure of the website should be addressed at this stage. Once the diagram has been approved, website structural changes will result in extra charges.
Note: Your website project will not proceed until the website layout diagram has been approved.
As part or your Identity Website Package, we have included 2 hours of revisions after we have completed the coding and submitted the website for your final review.
Rize Standard Content: We supply starter Standard Content to provide our clients with a starting point. If we don't have any standard content in our library for a particular service or product, we will only provide filler content. Any revision requests to Standard Content will require a custom copy creation charge.
Once your website is completed to your satisfaction, we ask you to carefully review all the details and then approve the website for publishing. Additional revisions are available for purchase on an hourly basis if needed.
Once live, any updates, changes, or additions will be considered a new project and will require additional payment.
When your website is approved and ready to put live online, we'll work with you to make the required changes to your domain configuration. We prefer to make those changes ourselves to ensure we get everything perfect, in which case we'll ask you to share access to your registrar account. However, in the event that you want to perform the registrar updates yourself, we will send you the details. Additional support for client registrar updates will be charged on an hourly basis.
Note: Non-standard registrar updates, complex third-party DNS management changes, or multiple registrar updates for multiple domain changes will all be charged for the time at our standard hourly rate.
