Reference: John McGrath –
Hi Ben,I just wanted to say that your annual maintenance program has already produced substantial benefits for us in the first few weeks of having subscribed.The first issue happened only four days into the new year. I had done some alterations to some code, which caused a cascade of issues and crashed the site. Ben, in his usual efficient style had the site up and running again within hours.Then, a couple of weeks later our website was hacked, which was very distressing. Once again, our Super SEO Guy jumped into action and re-built the site and tracked the problem down to a weak ftp password.The whole thing has now been beefed up and we are not expecting this sort of trouble again. The value of Ben’s maintenance plan is self-evident. We have already had the annual fee value and it’s not even February. We will continue investing in the plan and continue to use Ben’s other services.Exceptional service!Thanks again Ben.
