Your Website Is Critical To Your Business
You have a website that is crucial to your business. It generates leads, customers and revenue (or at least it should). It’s a channel through which customers, suppliers, potential new staff and partners will find you and engage with you. It is fundamental to the success of your business and you want peace of mind that it will be up and available for your audience 24/7 without interruption.
All Software Is Vulnerable
Software needs updating. All software. Including the software that powers your website. Your competitors are waking up (or maybe leading the way) and innovating with new websites and online strategies. The world is getting smaller as more of us connect to the web and that means that it is only going to get harder to keep up, let alone stay ahead of the pack.
More and more websites are getting hacked and attacked, including the big players like Twitter and Facebook as well as millions of small businesses everyday. It’s the nature of the world we live in and unfortunately websites are an easy target.
Do It Yourself?
Keeping your website up to date, backed up and secure can be time-consuming and a little tedious. It takes you away from what you should be doing, which is building relationships with your customers, staff & partners. The technology continues to evolve and there is no way you can keep abreast of all the trends and developments.
Yes, there are plenty of options for you to keep your website managed and up to date by the same company that hosts it. They do it for thousands of customers every day. That means they are experienced. It also means they might not be paying attention to the finer details of your particular website and business needs.
When it comes to your WordPress website, I familiarize myself with the code and all of the variables and combinations of things that hang together to make it work. I also know what the latest innovations are with WordPress as well. I’ve been using it for 10 years and all of the 400 + websites I’ve built are built with WordPress. That said, I’m in a better position to keep your website up and running and open for business, so I’m now offering WordPress maintenance plans.
What Is The Offer?
I’ll do all the nitty gritty things you don’t want to so you can just enjoy being a superhero to your audience. Think of me as your right-hand man.
I will perform all the small tasks on your website throughout the month to make sure every piece of content and code is perfect. Side note, small tasks refers to anything that takes less than 30 minutes which for the most part means content changes and not design or development.
Buying one of these plans means your website will continue to drive attention and customers into your business at a fraction of the time and cost it would take to do it yourself. Moreover, the minimum cost of any request without one of these plans is $100 but with one of these plans you won’t get billed $100 for each request or have to wait for days or weeks, you’ll get support within 2 business days.
The Waiting Room
It’s true. Like Doctors in the 70’s and Accountants in the 80’s, good web developers are booking weeks if not months in advance and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change in a hurry.
Every website should have a clear goal such as attract new customers, support existing customers or even support staff members. Whether it’s e-commerce, event management, e-learning or product research, your website has a purpose and it’s imperative that the user-experience facilitates it.
These plans are designed to offer you peace of mind and the assurance that you have a skilled partner who can help you achieve your online objectives. After all, your website is more than just a pretty web page, it’s your brand, it’s your sales force, your customer service & your baby.
If you fail to take care of your website, your website will fail to take care of you.
