Website care plans, and why you need one
Your website is an essential part of your business. It generates leads, customers, and money (if it’s not doing those things, call me). It’s also the primary way people will find your business. If your website goes down or isn’t working properly, you’re losing money.
I’ve gone to websites to buy something, only to find that when I get to the checkout page, it doesn’t work. Do I go to the trouble of contacting them? No–I buy the product from someone else. Imagine using Amazon if half of your purchases didn’t go through. Would you keep using it, or would you shop somewhere else?
The internet is a dangerous place.
All computer software–including the software that makes up websites–is vulnerable to hacking and other problems. In addition to hacking, there are a lot of little things that can go wrong and cause your website to malfunction. Your website is made up of many separate pieces of software, which are being constantly updated. Sometimes these updates — which are intended to fix a problem — themselves cause problems.
Why you should let me do it.
Keeping your website secure, backed up, and running smoothly takes time and specialized knowledge. As a business owner you probably don’t have the time, and I’m pretty sure you don’t have the special knowledge either. That’s okay; your job is running your business. My job is keeping track of the approximately one gazillion* technical details that can affect the smooth operation of your website.
*Slight exaggeration. Maybe.
Think of it like your car. If you don’t maintain it, the little problems will become big ones, which means big repair bills. But a regular maintenance plan can catch the little problems when they’re still easy and cheap to fix. One of my Website Care Plans is the best, most cost-effective way to keep your website performing well for your business.
What do these plans include?
All of my plans include the basic things needed to keep your site running smoothly — things like software updates, backups, and security monitoring. The Preferred and Premium plans also offer additional benefits. See the chart below for more information on features.
What’s my commitment?
All of these care plans are billed on a monthly basis — there is no long-term contract, and you can cancel whenever you wish. You can also upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time.
