Websites are no longer a “set and forget” part of your business. As technology evolves, website software is constantly being updated to make it more secure, faster and more visible to search engines. Just like your smartphone software needs updating, so too does your website. More importantly though, your website is a crucial part of your business and therefore requires extra care to make sure it continues to perform its functions.
Let me help you take care of your website. Consider the care plans below and choose the one that best fits your business needs. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
I will make a backup each week or month of your entire website. Have peace of mind knowing that if something goes wrong with your website, we always have a previous version to roll back to.
WordPress is the content management system that your website was built upon. WordPress rolls out updates a few times a year that fix bugs and add new features. Keeping your website’s WordPress version up to date is critical for security and making sure plugins still work with your website.
Think of plugins like smartphone apps, but for your website. These are different tools that we use to bring the website together. For example, when there’s a contact form on your website, there’s a plugin I use for that purpose. As WordPress changes and evolves, these plugins update to stay relevant and fresh. Keeping these plugins up to date is vital to a well-oiled website, and old versions of plugins can be a security risk.
Are there certain website tasks that you would like taken off of your hands? Support time means that if you have any small changes or content additions to your website, I can take care of these for you. Any unused time will roll-over into the next month.
You will be send a monthly PDF report detailing different metrics that I’m tracking on your website. This includes analytics details (how many visitors you’ve had to the site), security issues, performance issues, and updates that were made. I want you to see what you’re paying for, so you can clearly see the results and impact your website has on your users.
I will add your website to website directories such as the Yellow Pages and Manta. The more links you have from external websites linking to your site, the greater impact this can have on your web traffic. So by adding your website to these directories, it can help with your SEO. I can also help with optimizing new blog posts or pages on the site so you may perform better with Google.
By running a monthly performance evaluation, I can check to make sure that your website is running quickly and efficiently. If there are any issues with site speed changing significantly, as a result of increased traffic or a change in the website, I will be notified and can take the appropriate action.
The whole purpose of these plans is preventative care, so I hope to prevent any hacks or downtime from happening. However, in the case your website gets rolled into the ER, I will be there right by it’s side communicating with the web hosting on your behalf. I cannot promise your website will not be hacked but can promise I will do everything in my power to prevent it, as well as assist in the restoration and cleanup of the website with one of our backups. By blocking IP addresses of users who try and hack into your site, and receiving notifications in case your site goes down, I will be on the front lines in protecting your site from being compromised by hackers.
