WordPress Care Plans
Maintenance and support services designed to take the weight off your shoulders
Every day, malicious hackers make hundreds of millions of attempts to break into websites around the world. WordPress websites accounted for over 90% of these attacks in 2019, and software vulnerabilities are one of the leading causes of successful infections.
It's therefore extremely important to regularly update your website's software, so that fixes for any new security vulnerabilities are installed as soon as possible. In order to minimise disruption, it's best that the updates are performed late at night, backups are taken beforehand in case the updates need to be reversed, and an experienced developer is on-hand in case of any issues.
The good news is that we can happily take care of all this for you. In addition, we can continuously monitor the website on your behalf so we quickly discover any unexpected problems and proactively resolve them. You can sit back and relax - you're in safe hands.
Adding new content to your website regularly doesn't just give your visitors something fresh to look at - it also boosts your website's ranking in search engines. The fundamental principle of SEO is very simple - the better the quality of the website, the better it will rank in Google. Websites with regularly updated content are deemed by Google to be better quality than those which look great but never get updated.
The websites we build for you have very user-friendly tools built into them which will allow you to add new content to the site yourself, with no need for any technical knowledge. However, if you'd prefer to just prepare the content and let us take care of adding it to the website, we'd be very happy to do so. With our Content Management option, we'll add your new content to the website on an unlimited basis every month.
Over time, you may think of ideas for new features you'd like to add to your website, to support your business as it grows and evolves. Similarly, we may come up with ideas and suggestions of our own, based on emerging trends technologies.
With our strategy and development plan, we'll get together with you on a monthly call to discuss and prioritise new ideas. We'll then work on up to 5 of your highest priority development items each month, so you can continuously enhance your customers' experience when they visit your website.
