Is running your website a chore? Want some help?
From managing updates, keeping on top of backups, making sure the forms work (and get read), backups to dealing with security, Search Engine Optimisation, and Social Media, running a website can be a challenge if you’re not technically-minded, or haven’t the specialist staff. And if you are technically inclined, there is a pretty good chance that you’ve something more profit-generating to be doing with your time.
Why Use a Website Support Service?
Is it worth forking out the cash to pay someone else to manage your site and do work that you could easily do yourself?
Well, tasks like managing security and backups can be fairly easy to do, depending on the size of your site, while optimising performance is also relatively straightforward with the right software. But if you’re busy running your own business, website issues can be easily put off or ignored altogether, and learning to access and utilise the appropriate tools can be a big task.
We typically provide our clients support in the following:
- Custom development – including small tweaks and larger more complex design changes
- Updates to WordPress core, themes, and plugins
- Backups and security
- Performance optimisation
- Website monitoring
- Site migration
So, it all depends on your time, how much of it you have available to work on your site, and how much you value it.
To put it into perspective. If you only need basic help with your site for things like monitoring, backups and updates, a basic plan could be as little as £100/month – not much more than a mobile phone contract. If you charge £50 an hour for your own time and these tasks would take you 3-4 hours a month, getting someone else to do it for you is a no-brainer.
With all that in mind, take a look at what we can do for you.
