Why Web Maintenance Matters
Congratulations, your website is up and running! After hours of gruelling work and tweaks, you’ve finally gotten it to look exactly how you want… But that isn’t enough. Just like the human body needs regular nutrition and movement for optimal performance, websites require regular maintenance to function and run smoothly to get the most of out of your investment.
Here’s how having a well-maintained website will benefit you:
- A well-functioning site: Your website is the world’s window into your business, and will often be the first impression potential customers have of your organisation.Maintaining a professional appearance on your website is affected by out-of-date plugins used directly on the site or on third party services (e.g. Google Maps, reCAPTCHA, authenticators, etc.), but patching on a daily basis is impractical and uneconomical. Our monthly maintenance service offers a cost-effective, well-balanced approach to ensure your site keeps running smoothly.
- Protection against cyber-attacks: Countless websites are hacked every day, so it’s necessary to ensure your website and infrastructure are protected with up-to-date security software. It is also essential that security monitoring is in place to counter malware and cyber-attacks. Our web maintenance plan will protect your site from cyber hackers and security vulnerabilities.
- Search Engine Optimisation: Part of ranking well on Google depends on your website’s performance, level of security, and design. Search engine results are also affected by elements like website speed, responsiveness, and how mobile-responsive it is. Up your chances of ranking highly on Google by maintaining your website well.
- Financial savings: Cybersecurity attacks can affect un-maintained websites, causing revenue loss, business interruption and a poor client experience. Regular maintenance is an investment for your website and provides your organisation with a layer of digital protection to prevent loss of income and a diminished reputation.
