WordPress Maintenance Services
Software needs to be updated. It's a fact of life. WordPress and the associated plugins that run your site are updated on a regular basis, and it's critical that you always have the latest versions running on your site, as updates often address security issues. I'll keep you up to date and make sure that everything is still working smoothly once updates are applied.
Full Site Backups
Backups are like insurance policies for your website. You hope you never need to use it, but when you need it, you're glad you have it. Websites are hacked or infected with malware every day. With an automated backup strategy, if that happens to you, your site could be back up and running in no time. Without a backup plan, you could be looking at starting over from scratch and having to pay thousands of dollars to have your website rebuilt from the ground up. Don't be that guy.
Enhanced Security & Malware Scans
Hackers are working 24/7 to find vulnerabilities and new ways to attack your site. Even if you see no visible changes to your site, it could still be infected with malware and infecting all of your site's visitors without you ever knowing it. I'll implement security features to harden your site, protecting you from the majority of attacks, and I'll scan your site daily for malware to be sure nothing gets through.
Even if your site is beautiful, if it loads slowly, you will drive visitors straight to your competition. Did you know Google even penalizes you in the search results if your site is slow? Nobody likes a slow website. I'll tweak your settings, make sure caching and compression are optimized, and make sure nothing is getting in the way of your visitors having a great experience on your site. I can even implement a CDN (content delivery network) on your site to make it wicked fast.
Uptime & Downtime Monitoring
If your site was down right now, would you even know? I would, because I monitor clients' sites, checking them every five minutes to make sure they are up and running. If I discover that your site is unreachable, I'll investigate and let you know if there is an issue that should be fixed or needs to be addressed with your webhost.
Analytics Right in Your Dashboard
As a business owner, it's important to understand where your site visitors are coming from, and what they're doing on your site. Unfortunately many site owners don't know how to access this data. I'll make Google Analytics simple enough for any small business owner to understand, and put your data right in your WordPress dashboard.
Discount on Project Time
Sure, some people can update content, add plugins, or tweak a design themselves. Not one of those people? No problem, have me do it. The Concierge plan comes with 1/2 hour of project time per month, and the Business and Concierge plans allow additional project time to be purchased at a 23% discount off of my standard hourly rate.
Certain plugins require that active licenses be maintained in order to receive ongoing updates and support. For any plugins that I install in order to perform backups, maintenance, security, or other services, I will provide active licenses while a maintenance plan is active. Further, if I built your site, I will provide active licenses for plugins used in the design/build as long as a maintenance plan is active.
