What are WordPress Maintenance Plans?

IF YOU WOULD RATHER SPEND MORE TIME ON YOUR BUSINESS AND AVOID THE IT HASSLE, YOU MIGHT NEED A WORDPRESS MAINTENANCE PLAN

WordPress Maintenance Plans are exactly what you think they are, maintenance plans for your site’s back-end structure. In other words, updating your version of WordPress, updating plugins, making backups and adding extra security can all be part of a WordPress Maintenance Plan.

I have been using WordPress to power my website for awhile and on any given day, there’s always an update needed. For instance, plugins need updates on a regular basis (once or twice a month) and the same goes for your theme, as well as the WordPress core.

Several small businesses have been using our wordpress maintenance plans , so they can spend more time on their sales and marketing strategies, rather than dealing with IT issues. Here’s a list of issues you could potentially (is not a matter of if, but rather when) run into, if you don’t stay on top of all your site’s maintenance:

  • Outdated WordPress core, which could lead to potential vulnerabilities
  • Outdated plugins, which could also be exploited to gain access to your site
  • Outdated backups (assuming you remember to backup your site from time to time) can become a major headache if your site gets hacked
  • Outdated theme can cause conflict with a newer version of the WordPress core
  • Low-level security is just an invitation for your site to get hacked

Why Should I Get a WordPress Maintenance Plan?

I SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIGURE THIS OUT ON MY OWN, RIGHT?

I have seen countless business owners taking on website maintenance themselves. However, as time goes by, the tasks involved in keeping everything up to date become too much.

If you are ready to concentrate on your business and leave your site maintenance in our hands, this is the process that we follow:

I go through your website and determine all the different items that need to be updated on a monthly basis.

THE CONVERSATION

I discuss with you all the things that need to be looked after, and give recommendations on how to improve certain aspects of your website, including speed and SEO.

MONTHLY REPORTING

I’ll send you a report detailing all the work that has been done on your site, so you are always informed about your site’s health.
