WordPress Retainers mean consulting, development, and success.
Partner with Performance Foundry to help your site with on-page SEO, technical marketing, tracking goals and KPIs, developing new features, improving security, fixing bugs, making your site faster… our specialist WordPress consultants and developments can help you.
Whether you’re a marketing team, or in need of a marketing and development team, a WordPress development retainer from Performance Foundry can help you re-focus on your core business, and help your website achieve the growth it needs.
Performance Foundry retainers do not lock you into a long-term contract, but we require two month’s notice before ending a retainer. That’s because work is scheduled by the quarter. This powerful tool allows us to take your annual goals, break them into quarters, and then into months. By understanding your business, we can move forward with focus!
Your work is planned and assigned on a quarterly basis, starting with a meeting with your site strategist. This meeting allows us to understand the levers of your business and create a strategic 90-day action plan to move forward. That is likely to include a mix of improvements, feature development, traffic growth and conversion rate optimisation.
The Strategist then speaks with our Director of Engineering and your Project Manager to ensure we’re doing the most valuable work to move your goals forward. A plan is agreed with you, and the work scheduled for the rest of the quarter.
During the quarter, our team of specialists and developers will be working hard! You’ll receive work updates from the Project Manager. Some time is set aside for support, and ad-hoc requests too. If new items come up that aren’t part of the plan, we can work with you to get those onto the agenda for next quarter or add extra hours into your retainer for the one-off project.
At the end of the quarter, your site strategist will review the work and its outcomes. They’ll speak with our Engineering team to understand any upcoming development needs, then meet with you to review the successes, understand any misses, and create another powerful action plan for the following quarter.

Is there a contract?
Are you the manager of a busy website, who:
1. Is struggling with search traffic or conversions?
2. Doesn’t have the in-house resources to improve your site?
3. Needs regular development work, but doesn’t have an in-house team?
4. Has received complaints about site performance from site users?
5. Wants to have a competent, reliable WordPress development team on call?
Performance Foundry can help!
We created our monthly WordPress retainer with you in mind.
During the first month, we’ll meet with you to discuss your website focus and goals. We’ll put a plan together and start implementing it. Going forward, we’ll dedicate a certain number of hours each month to fixing the key issues identified in the first meeting, as well as making positive changes for continued improvement.
You can also use your dedicated hours to access our helpdesk — If you have a small problem that needs to be fixed, our developers will work on that as soon as possible.
There are benefits to all our retainers:
- Improved site performance.
- Ongoing relationship with a trusted provider.
- Excellent advice about how to move ahead with your site.
- Save time and hassle — if you have an issue, you can come straight to us.
We can’t guarantee it, but working with us is correlated with faster sites, more sales, and less stress.
You can scale up and down at any time, and extra hours can be purchased for large projects or extra consulting.
These packages each represent a large discount off our standard development rates:
- Five-hour package: 12% discount
- Ten or twenty hours: 16% discount
- Forty hours or more: 20% discount
If you’d like to get started straight away, we recommend you start off on the ten- or twenty-hour-per-month package. We’ll discuss options during your first meeting with us, and you can upgrade or downgrade the service as necessary.
