Once your website is online and running the plugins, themes and platforms upon which your site is built will need regular updates and ongoing maintenance.
Just like your mobile phone and computer software need updating, your website also needs regular routine maintenance.
Keeping your website in perfect working order 24/7 can take a lot of your time and effort.
There are actions and updates that need to be constantly completed on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
A Website Maintenance Plan from Illuminate will give you the peace of mind in knowing that your website is always in top working order as well as taking the hassle of having to monitor the condition of your website yourself.
Your Website is an essential part of your business and without a Website Maintenance Plan, you run the risk of your site going offline, crashing or even worse being hacked.
The success of a Website relies on its stability and uptime. When your website is down, your online business is down and potential sales opportunities are lost.
For your business to be successful, you need your website to be available to the search engines and your clients 24/7.
Website downtimes can cost the average business thousands of dollars and can seriously damage your brand's online presence and reputation and trust.
For businesses to generate sales, they need to be able to target their customers, bring in new customers and so forth.
When people can’t find your site, this will impact your sales and your ability to bring in new customers.
Website uptime is vital to the success of your business.
A damaged site can lead to irreversible consequences and disruption to your business.
A regular maintenance plan is a crucial part of keeping your website in top working order.
For starters, you will be keeping your website online and available to all of your customers and clients.
More uptime means more opportunities for your clients to access your website so that they can purchase your products and services at their convenience.
Therefore, if your site goes down, you are missing out on revenue and clients, also increasing the risk of identity theft as well as reputational damage.
If your website goes offline this sends a very negative signal to your clients about your business and the trustworthiness of your brand.
Having a Website Maintenance Plan in place with regular software updates and scheduled security updates will also give you peace of mind and a reliable & up to date website which means you don’t have to spend hours on the phone with customers or clients as they are unable to reach you.
