Your Web Chick’s Got Your Back when it comes to website maintenance, so you can focus on more important things, like running your business.
Why do you need a WordPress Maintenance plan?
Security: Now that WordPress has become so widely used, some hackers seem to have nothing better to do with their time than to wreak havoc on your site…any site…by targeting the vulnerabilities in your WordPress installation. The developers of WordPress regularly create patches to fix these vulnerabilities and these patches are passed along to you via periodic updates. By failing to keep your WordPress website up-to-date, you risk becoming victim to these nasty attacks that can easily be diverted by simply keeping your WordPress current. It is highly recommended that you always keep your theme and plugins updated as well, to ensure that they are fully compatible with the latest WordPress version.
Performance: WordPress saves revision after revision as you edit your pages and posts. You can easily wind up with 25+ versions of a post or page. Multiply that by the number of posts and pages on your site, and you could wind up with tons of extra data stored in your database! Some experts don’t feel this has any effect on performance, but I say the more streamlined your database is, the better! Additionally, broken links can negatively affect your SEO – I’ll take care of those, too!
Protection: What if something happened and you lost all the content on your website? What’s your time worth? How much of that time have you invested in your site and what would it take to replace it if you lost it all? This calculator can help you determine a cost estimate of what you’ve got invested in the pages and posts on your website:
So what would you say this peace of mind is worth to you? I’ve had people tell me $100 a month or more. But I’ve Got Your Back starting at just $36/month!
Here’s What’s Included:
