Is running your website a chore?
Is running your website a chore? Why not outsource the work?
From managing updates and backups to dealing with security, optimization, and custom development, running a WordPress site can be a challenge if youre not technically inclined. And if you are technically inclined, it can be time consuming running multiple websites.
In recent years, there has been huge growth in the number of agencies offering maintenance and support for WordPress sites, kind of like one-stop shops that can take over the running of your website after launch, or even make simple one-off tweaks and updates to your site.
Let’s take a take a look at the services available, what they currently offer, and what to consider when choosing the right plan for your needs.
Why Use a WordPress Support Service?
Our WordPress maintenance contracts offer some or all of the following services:
Custom development – including small tweaks and larger more complex design changes
Updates to WordPress core, themes, and plugins
Backups and security
Is it worth forking out the cash to pay someone else to manage your site and, in many cases, do work that you could easily do yourself?
Yes, tasks like managing security and backups can be fairly easy to do depending on the size of your site and how many sites you have, while optimizing performance is also relatively straightforward with the right tools. But if you’re busy running your church and ministries things like custom development can be easily put off or ignored altogether.
So it all depends on your time, how much of it you have available to work on your site/s, 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 premium plan with a service like Maintainn would set you back $49 a month per site. If you charge $50 an hour for your own time and these tasks would take you two hours a month, getting someone else to do it for you is a no-brainer.
With all that in mind, here is a look at what WordPress maintenance services we are currently offering.
