WordPress Care Plan

WordPress powers 39% of all websites (updated 14 Jan, 2021) on the internet, including CNN, TechCrunch and USA Today.

It’s easy to see why WordPress is so popular. It’s powerful enough to do just about anything you want to do. And it’s extremely easy to use. Posting an article to your site is about as easy as sending an email.

It’s so easy, in fact, that many business owners have a set-it-and-forget-it attitude about WordPress.

This is a big mistake. A lot can, and does go wrong. Savvy small business owners know they need a care plan to maximize the potential of WordPress and protect themselves from hacker attacks.

Read on as we examine biggest reasons your small business needs a WordPress care plan.

WordPress Care Plan Keeps Your Site Current

A WordPress care plan ensures your website is regularly updated and maintained. It makes sure your site operates efficiently at optimal speeds. Just as importantly, a good care plan safeguards your website against attacks

Many WordPress functions require manual action so unless you have a person dedicated to performing these tasks, you won’t be able to update WordPress and enjoy the benefits of a fully-updated site.

A missed update could leave your site vulnerable to a hacker attack or downtime, each of which can result in lost customers.

Improve Visitor Experience and SEO

A fast loading website is important for your site’s visitors and for search engine rankings as well. In fact, Google is putting more emphasis on site speed than ever before.

Did you know when you update WordPress, your databases and plugins, it can have a negative impact on your website’s performance?

That’s where a solid care plan can benefit your company, alerting you to performance issues and providing immediate solutions.

Done-For-You Service So You Can Concentrate on Your Business

Maintaining your business website is a time-consuming endeavor. It requires weekly software updates and daily search engine optimization tasks to complete. But as a business owner, the last thing you need to worry about it the technicalities of SEO, website backups and maximizing your site uptime.  Your attention is better spent running your business and focusing on core business strategies.

A WordPress care plan can take these duties off your hands. You can rest assured knowing your website business and marketing is working around the clock.

The Right Care Plan Saves You Money

Your website is like a car. It costs you more to fix than it does to maintain.

If you don’t update your site regularly, it can begin to have major problems with its functionality and design. Fixing these problems can be a major undertaking with a high price tag, which you can avoid through regular maintenance and upkeep.

Trying to restore your site from an old back up can still leave you unable to recover all of your orders, database entries and content changes. Clearly, neglecting your site can have significant consequences.

The Bottom Line

Your business is too important to leave things to chance. Protect your company with a dedicated team focused on your WordPress site. They will work around the clock to ensure your website is functioning with peak speed, functionality, and security.
