Who maintains your company's website?

Ryan Miller's Profile

Do you have an in-house person manage/maintain the website? Or do you outsource to a contractor?

Ryan,

A blend. I know that doesn't help.

With the media companies I support, some of them do it all in house, but that is very rare. With the less-media focused (but still techie) companies, outsourcing gets more significant. Going quickly through the tiers:

Hosting: 100% outsourced
Structure / Maintenance of structure: 90% out
Design and implementation (pretty pictures, layout): 90% out
Content management: 75% out, but with a blend. For example price sheets stay inside, as it is appropriately owned. Blogging stays outside, and for $1K a month we get fantastic and insightful articles about our industry (and our place in it) cross-linked.
SEO: 100% out (with the exception of my SEO companies, who do outsource pieces of this).

We outsourced it's design, hosting and maintenance. Cheaply. Well, our know-it-all marketing director did.

And IMHO, it shows. Our website is lousy. Complicated and difficult to navigate.

Others here say the same thing. :-)
