WHY YOU NEED MONTHLY MAINTENANCE ON YOUR WEBSITE?
Having your website functioning properly and serving the purpose for which you built it requires monthly maintenance. It is not a “set it and forget it” part of your business. Unfortunately, many business owners pay to have a website put up and then neglect the website completely. This is not good business.
Here are 5 reasons why you must have monthly maintenance on your site:
- Google hates stagnant websites; it’s important to go in and make some changes to the content of the site because Google loves “new” content. My monthly maintenance package includes 1 hour of edits/revisions/additions to your site. My rate outside of this package is $75 per hour.
- Adding Blog posts monthly is important because Google sees this as “fresh content” and will reward you by sending more traffic to your website. Just doing 2 blog posts per month that are “search-engine optimized” and rich with keywords will drive more traffic to your site! You provide the Blog content and I will format and upload it to your site.
- Backing up your site is important because you’ve put all of this work, time, energy and money into the site and their is a possibility of your site getting hacked into. A business friend of mine recently had her site hacked into and it was down for over 2 weeks! Unfortunately, she was not with a reputable hosting company and she had not backed up her site. It’s a hard lesson to learn. We back up your site every 30 days, save it on our computer, on an external hard drive and then send you a copy as well for added protection!
- Updating Plugins and the WordPress installation. New versions of programs, plugins and wordpress come out monthly and they need to be updated. We go in and do this for you so your site is updated and functioning properly.
- Peace of Mind. By having someone monitoring your site monthly, you have peace of mind and can go about taking care of your business knowing that your site is safe, secure and running smoothly.
The Basic Monthly Maintenance fee is $97 per month, which is a small investment for all of the above. Sign up now to start your monthly maintenance program!
