Join the Foodie Digital community
Consistency of support is important to us. FD+ Projects are custom work that we do in addition to monthly membership.
Examples include theme changes, custom cookbook pages, campaign templates, landing pages, and much more.
Each FD+ Project is supported with a clear Statement of Work and member involvement at key points in the schedule is required to ensure the success of an FD+ Project.
FD+ Projects are exclusively offered to members and the work completed is done at a discounted rate.
Recipe Index Development
A dynamic recipe index is on every food bloggers wish list, and it’s one of our favorite tools to develop. Our approach is mobile-first, SEO friendly and the turnaround is quick.
Our recipe index development framework includes an audit and clean-up of your existing category and tag structure before any development begins.
Recipe index development is exclusively offered to members of Foodie Digital.
Join the waitlist
To ensure the highest level of care for new and existing Foodie Digital members, we sometimes limit the number of new members who join Foodie Digital at one time.

My host handles secure offsite backups and WordPress core updates. How is your service different?
Some hosting plans provide backups as a Managed WordPress hosting service, but do you know how often they back-up your site? What are they backing up? Is it just the database or theme files too? How about WordPress core updates and plugins? And uploads? It’s hard to know what’s involved.
With a web hosting provider, you are somewhat anonymous and your support is often generic. With us, we know you, your food blog, your theme, your custom design elements and, mostly importantly, your timing. We can better anticipate what’s needed, and when, to support your growth.
Another benefit of having us do the updates is that we understand how and why certain plugin updates may fail. We often choose to defer specific plugin updates if we know a bug fix is coming or if we’ve seen an issue on another Foodie Digital member’s site.
Also your web hosting provider may have secure offsite backups available, but in the event of a failure how comfortable are you finding and restoring the right backup yourself?
What's an example of a quick support request?
Support requests are big part of what we do and they’re a great tool for when you need a helping hand. We consider support requests to be any task that takes our team about 25 minutes or less to resolve.

What's the biggest difference between Mix and Make?
On a monthly basis, Make is much faster paced than Mix, and the number of monthly tech support requests is different: 6 a month with Make, 3 a month with Mix.
Both service packages guide you toward improving posts with manageable monthly SEO assignments: 2 a month with Make and 1 a month with Mix.
I work with a developer. Is there a package that's SEO only?
Like PB & J, tech support and SEO go together. We do not have plans for an SEO-only service package.
Tech support and SEO converge all the time but for far too long they’ve been considered separate practices. We’re changing that and providing our members with holistic WordPress support.
Can you redesign my food blog or help me switch themes?
We’re flattered you asked! But no, we do design tweaks only for Foodie Digital members.
We are not a full-service custom design shop. But we do work closely with the best of the best in design in the food niche and would be happy to make an introduction.
