Once you have a website, a whole new set of problems will need to be considered and addressed. How will you protect your site from software vulnerabilities and server failures? What will you do to ensure your contact, email list sign up, and ecommerce forms are working? Will you know it if your site falls in the search engine results page rankings? Who will make the updates if some of the information on your site changes? Will you even notice that the information needs to be updated?
Our professional team is ready to complete your website maintenance needs, below is a partial list of some website update areas we service.
A maintenance plan is designed to take care of routine tasks that must be completed on an ongoing basis. It’s a good idea to also have a plan in place for keeping the information on your site fresh, updated, and accurate. As you develop a plan to keep your site updated, make sure it covers the following tasks:
A website maintenance plan needs to include all of the steps needed to keep the site operating as it was designed and protected against technical issues.
Addition of new content: If you have a site that you want people to visit regularly, you will need to add new content, such as blog posts and articles, on a regular basis. In order to do that, you’ll want to set a schedule for posting updates. While it’s usually fine to post updates more frequently than your schedule calls for, the schedule should serve as the maximum time period that may acceptably pass between updates.
Updating existing content: This task will vary depending on the content of your site. Think through the content on your site, and how it might change over time. Do you have a list of company staff on your site? How about company contact email addresses and phone numbers? Do you have pricing for products and services on your website? What about lead times to produce certain items or typical response times? All of these things will change over time. Set a regular time at which someone checks the accuracy of your website content, and updates it as appropriate.
