This business Website was insecure for a staggering 22 days before a potential customer informed the owner by phone!
Should I hire someone to keep my Website update to date?
If your Website is only a few pages of static content, meaning product and service information rarely changes, you likely don't need help. However you should learn how to maintain the server your Website runs on - it can be hacked too, and your Web host is not responsible for helping you recover any lost or corrupted data.
If your Website is essential to attracting new customers and retaining existing customers, meaning product and service information is constantly changing, someone really should be managing it.
Why can't my secretary do it?
Not maintaining your Website is kind of like never changing the oil in your delivery truck - when it breaks down, a competitor will happily make those missed deliveries to your old customers.
If you chose to simply ignore your Website, just keep in mind, there's no secret sauce - your Website will not magically update itself, make content more appealing or thwart hackers. Someone has to manage text and images that appear on a page, someone has to update the codebase and someone has to keep the hosting server secure.
What are the benefits of a Website Maintenance plan?
- Are your Web pages littered with grammatical and sentence structure issues? Professional copywriting can add much needed legitimacy to your message, making it easier for Humans and search engines to consume.
- Does every page of your Website have at least one call-to-action? Professional graphic design and slogans can improve product and service visibility.
- When was the last time your Website framework and hosting server were updated? This now happens at least once a month.
- Was your Website hacked? Regular backups of all Website files and databases ensure a full restore in under an hour.
- And a lot more.
Did you know...software updates and security patches are rolled out to your Web server many times a year, and in most cases these require user input to complete. Your Web hosting company is not responsible for installing these updates.
