Small or big, every business today has an online presence. If you want to be noticed or accessible, an address on the information highway is absolutely necessary. WordPress is the most popular content management system among website owners. The main drawback is maintenance, it isn’t hard, it is just time consuming.
For a website to attract visitors, it is important that it is fast, efficient, and performance oriented. To maintain a SEO friendly website, a fair amount of maintenance is required on an ongoing basis. The content on the website may be just great, but you are not going to keep up the traffic to it unless it works like a finely tuned machine.
This can be a great distraction to a business. You don’t want to spend time tinkering with your website which you’d much rather devote to core business activities. For such busy people and for those who don’t care too much for technology,
Pixel Dust’s WordPress maintenance services is a great solution. You can leave the nitty–gritties to us and focus on your business.
We are a service provider who can take care of the entire WordPress maintenance starting at $35 per month (when paid yearly). For this price we take care of WordPress updates (core, plugins and theme), backups and restoration, malware scans, and 24/7 customer service with a typical 30 minute response time. We also have plans that include hosting, email and one migration (to our hosting).
To check whether it is a good option for you, it may be a good idea to do the math and see how much time you will be spending on maintenance and the money value of this time. Even if this doesn’t quite add up, you may not want to do something that is not familiar to you and have the website perform at less than optimum.
Websites also need protection from hackers on the prowl and lurking malware. Hackers have become more sophisticated and malware more damaging. When security is a concern, it may be better to leave it to professionals.
In a nutshell, why you should leave maintenance to a maintenance service provider,
- Saves time, and probably money.
