By now, you’ll know that having your own website can be a lot of work. The work begins in website development, choosing colours and content, but it doesn’t stop there. Keeping your WordPress website fully functioning, up to date and secure is a full-time job. And if you haven’t got an IT department on hand to tackle it for you, it becomes your full-time job.
Having a website care plan gives you peace of mind that your website is always working as it should.
But what does a Website Care Plan include? And how can you utilise one to benefit your business?
Website Care Plans
All website care plans are different, and good providers will tailor your care plan to your specific needs. However, there are a few essential points that all plans should cover.
We like to identify them by asking the following questions:
- Is your WordPress Website up to Date?
WordPress maintenance is no mean feat. With updates aplenty and things often going awry, you’ll know that keeping on top of the constant changes is a challenge. Unfortunately for all of us website owners out there, Google doesn’t take too kindly to a WordPress site that isn’t keeping up with the crowd.
Website care plans provide regular WordPress Maintenance to ensure everything is up to date, running smoothly, and, most importantly, pleasing Google!
- How Secure is your Site?
Did you know that 90,978 WordPress attacks happen every minute? That’s a pretty big risk to be taking if your website isn’t 100% secure.
An unsecure website not only leaves your website, data and business vulnerable, but it’s also a huge red-flag for potential customers – don’t be surprised if they click-off in record time as soon as they spot that something isn’t right!
Website care plans help ensure that your website is secure and safe from threats at all times, while simultaneously reassuring your customers. And, in case the worst does happen, website care plans also give you peace of mind that all your data is backed-up and safely stored.
- Is your Website Working in Slow-Motion?
When it comes to UX, a slow website isn’t fun for anyone.
It’s no fun for you when you’re stuck in the back end of your site trying to speed it up. It’s no fun for users when they’re forced to watch the loading wheel of doom whenever they click on a new page.
In fact, according to SWEOR, 47% of users expect pages to load in a maximum of two seconds. If it doesn’t, you can bet they’re clicking off to find one that does.
A slow site needs a website care plan. This will provide you with a WordPress speed optimisation service, ensuring your website plays in fast-forward, not slow-mo.
A website care plan does what it says on the tin. It keeps your website running smoothly, removes endless maintenance tasks from your to-do list and gives you peace of mind that your website is 100% secure and working the way it should.
