WordPress Care Plans

Sit Back and Let someone else worry about your website

If you want to take care of WordPress’ updates and maintenance on your own, check out my post “Have you updated your WordPress website lately?” to learn how. If doing it yourself is not something you’re interested in, read on to learn how I can help you out.

WordPress, while awesome, isn’t a set it and forget it kinda thing. There is basic maintenance that absolutely NEEDS to be performed regularly in order to keep your site happy, healthy and making you money. Skip that maintenance and you’re putting your site as risk of being hacked or breaking and no longer working. The longer you skip out on maintenance, the more risk you take on.

My WordPress Care Plans aim to take the hassle and the risk out of maintaining your site. ALL of my Care Plans include backups and updates at their core. These two elements are the most important part of maintaining your WordPress website. If you do nothing else, make sure you regularly back up and update your website! While the Backups + Updates Plan is most important, My Essentials Care Plan and Total Care Plan add some other cool and useful services that you may be interested in so check them out as well. You can always bump up or down a level of care if you’d like at any time later on. Care Plans are billed one month at a time so you’re never locked in. You’ll find a breakdown of what each service available entails near the bottom of the page.

You’ve likely spent a lot of time and potentially quite a bit of money to create your website so make sure you protect that investment! Also, in case you were wondering, all of my WordPress Care Plans are available for all WordPress sites. So, whether I built it, you built it or another designer built it, I’ve got you covered.

NOTICE: Starting March 1, 2019, all custom WordPress website design projects come with three months of my Total Care Plan absolutely free ($450 CAD value) and clients who purchase a WordPress website template from my shop will receive three months of the Backup + Updates plan for free ($75 CAD value). This service will automatically cancel at the end of the three month period, you will not be billed for additional months and there is no obligation to continue once those free months are up if you decide you don’t need it.

Included With All Plans

Daily backups of your website and free site restore from backup files in case something goes horribly wrong.

Incremental, reliable backups with off-site storage mean your website is protected from all of the little things that can go wrong. A plugin update or install gone awry, accidentally (or on purpose) modifying the code of your site and getting the white screen of death, or a malware infestation don’t mean your site is toast. With free site restore, all you need to do is ask and I’ll restore your site to your most recent, safe, backup file.

Weekly, safe, updates of your plugins, themes and WordPress itself with automatic rollback if any of those updates causes your site to break.

Sometimes updates can break your site even though they are necessary to keep your site secure and running smoothly. It’s a double edge sword. The new files aren’t compatible with the old and, boom, your site won’t load anymore. As part of your care plan, updates are performed weekly. A restore point is made before doing any updates so ensure your site is updated safely. If anything goes south, everything can be automatically rolled back to before the updates for troubleshooting. Goodbye worries!

Included With The Essentials Plan

Everything Above, Plus

Weekly Securi security and malware scans.

Malware is sneaky, it could be on your website for months without you even noticing. With weekly scans, you can be proactive in checking for malware and known vulnerabilities. If any files do become infected, you will be able to spot them on time.

IMPORTANT: Security scans are just the messenger, they do not clean the site for you if malware happens to be found.

Weekly website performance testing.

A slow site can mean loss of revenue. When a customer lands on your site and has to wait too long for it to load, they will often click away and find someone else offering the same product or service. Weekly performance testing gives you insight into what is happening with your website and how it’s performing. You’ll get a breakdown of the factors that are affecting your website and will be able to see each individual factor and its grade, as well as recommendations on how to improve. You can also follow your website performance over time.

Weekly comment management.

Spam comments on your WordPress website, like your Instagram profile, are inevitable. They’re a crappy fact of life. A lot of them are vulgar or link to adult content. You don’t want them hanging out at the bottom of your blog posts, that’s for sure. Well maybe if you’re running an adult site you might but, for most of us, they’re something that needs to go! With weekly comment management, the obvious spam comments will be removed from your site, never to see the light of day again. Good riddance!

Google analytics tracking.

Keep track of who is doing what on your website. With Google Analytics tracking, you’ll get an overview of the number of sessions, returning visitors, social media, organic search, page views, page sessions, time on site and bounce rate in your monthly progress reports. You’ll need to sign up for a free Google Analytics account in order for me to monitor it for you but I can help you do that if you don’t know how.

Link monitoring.

Unresponsive or broken links are bad for search engine optimization and they ruin the user experience for your customers. Link monitoring provides you with regular daily scans of your entire WordPress site to check for broken links. If, during these daily checks, any bad links are found you will be notified ASAP so that we can fix them together.

About the Author

I’m Krystal and I’m one of those quirky, super-introverted, stereotypical designer folks that’s in legit danger of becoming a hermit. You know the type.

When I'm not working, I'm either homeschooling my 10 year old son or working my butt off (quite literally) to turn our property into micro farm with gardens, chickens and, someday, dairy goats.

I’m also an unashamed geek, sarcastic to a fault, I laugh way too hard at Dad jokes and I probably drink too much coffee. Oh, and I love, love, LOVE anime. Did I mention that I love anime? Because, seriously, I really love anime.

Wanna be friends? Send me an email or hit me up on social media! Being super-introverted I’m admittedly not the most active participant on social networks but Instagram is where you will find me most often.

Let’s Level Up Your Online Presence

Looking amazing online means better business and you could be losing customers or missing out on sales if you don’t have your act together.

Every business needs to consistently onboard new clients or make sales but this is critically important to small businesses. A great website design is a tool to help your business make more money and, as consumers are becoming more design savvy and spending more time online, it matters today more than ever. If you get it right, your business will look more professional and you will position yourself as a leader among your competition. This makes people want to work with you and buy your products or services. If you get it wrong, well, it has the opposite effect and no one wants that (except maybe your competition!).

Don’t risk losing clients because of a poorly designed website (or worse, no website at all!). Let’s talk today about your website goals and and how we can work together to make your business look great online.
