If you don't want to get hacked, it's not an option.
Just because you have a small website, doesn't mean hackers aren't constantly trying to get into your site and wreak havoc. You wouldn't believe the amount of attacks thwarted each day by my security software on small business sites. If you don't have a backup, or don't notice the hack right away, you could end up needing to rebuild your entire site.
You know how your phone, or your computer need updates periodically? So does your website! You may not realize it, but your WordPress website needs regular maintenance too, in order to stay healthy, secure, and perform at its peak.
Social Spark Media can make sure your WordPress website stays up-to-date, optimized, and secure, and we'll be there when you've got a question.
While WordPress is one of the most user-friendly content management systems, unfortunately, it isn't a "set it and forget it" system. Some of the many WordPress maintenance tasks that need to be performed regularly to keep your website running smoothly are:
- Plugin updates
- WordPress core updates
- Spam cleanup
- Revisions cleanup
- Database optimization
What happens when you don't keep your WordPress site up-to-date? You open yourself up to hackers who will make a mess of your website that only a professional can clean up.
Then, there are all of those little things you just don't have time to figure out, like:
- New user creation
- Creating correctly sized images
- Password changes or resets
- Formatting blog posts
- Installing new plugins
You might want to add new functionality, like:
- an email capture form
- an RSS newsletter that automatically sends your blogs to an email list
- employment applications, customer service surveys, polls, or other forms
Social Spark Media can provide these WordPress maintenance services for your business monthly, or as needed.
