As stated by WebPageFX 

In order to attract and retain customers, maintain search engine rankings, and provide information about your products and services to the public, your company needs website maintenance.​

Most people focus on building a website. What most people fail to understand is the proper maintenance of what it entails to have a website online.

Most firms like us offer WordPress maintenance contracts without a long term commitment. When we build, recover or redesign a website, we typically recommend that the client choose one of our plans so they can see the value in what we do.

But if at any moment the customer feels they want to leave, we allow them to cancel.

Are you handling your Website Maintenance on Your Own?

If you are, is there a reason why you have chosen to do your own site management?
Can you keep up with the latest updates? Are those performing site maintenance, subject matter experts on the platform? Are you having issues with your Website continuously?

If you answered yes to more than one of these questions, then it might be a good idea to outsource your website maintenance and management to WordPress consultants and professionals.

Let us know if we can help by running a Site Health Check.
