If you have a website, then the answer is YES. While WordPress is the best website platform for small businesses, it is powered by plugins that are always being updated – stack on top of that regular WordPress core updates. Monthly maintenance is a MUST for every website owner.
Security & Maintenance Packages
Absolutely! Most small business website owners do not need Fort Knox security but need basic protection. Most businesses have locks on their doors and a basic alarm system but do not even have the most basic protection for their website. One shocking report found over 18.5 million websites are infected with malware or fall victim to hackers daily. When a hacker hits one of the security measures we put in place, they move on to their next victim. They have millions of insecure websites to choose from, why work harder?
We think so. The average cost of recovering from a malware infection typically costs 20-35% more than the original cost of the business owner’s website. Not to mention the average time to recover from a malware infection or attack is 2-6 weeks depending on the severity of the incident. If you have regular website backups, it cuts that time of recovery down to days rather than weeks. It’s not an issue of IF you will experience a website failure…. it’s a question of WHEN. The old adage says, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Yes. We have several clients who update WordPress core files, themes, and plugins on their own. It is easy to click that “Update Now” button. Unfortunately, there are millions of WordPress plugins and themes with more being produced every day. There is no way to test each one of these plugins and themes with new versions of WordPress. We see about 60% of our clients come to us with crashed or broken websites because of updates applied.
Most of these crashed sites can be fixed with 3-4 hours of testing and work. However, your website can be down for several hours and even days to get these fixes applied. The costs involved in these fixes are typically more expensive annually than our WordPress website maintenance packages. Our WordPress maintenance packages are cost effective and keep your website updated and live the way it should be!
