After months of effort and constantly working with your web designer, content writers, and web developers, you finally got your perfect website. Finally, you think the job's done, and you can say goodbye to your web development team.
How important is your website for your business? For many, it's crucial to running their business, and it needs to keep running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year without interruption.
That's where a WordPress website support plan can help your business. However, not establishing a proper support arrangement with your development agency or support partner can make it hard to keep things going.
Here is the list of reasons why you need WordPress and website support:
A good WordPress support plan includes regular website audits to identify gaps. These gaps could be outdated plugins, themes, WordPress Core, bugs and security issues.
A website support plan ensures regular website updates with the latest WordPress version, plugins and theme to help bridge the gaps and enhance security and performance.
Over time as you add new content and photos to your website and make changes to layouts, it affects your website performance and speed. A support contract offer continues optimisation by a professional team to keep things in order.
Website support offered 24 hours website monitoring to deal with an outage, hacking attacks, security breaches and human errors.
Sometimes, some bugs are left on the site, even with careful testing and reviews. But when the bugs are discovered, they need to be remediated quickly and swiftly. Therefore, a good website support plan includes bug remediation and response.
Regular support and maintenance mean you stay on top of things and avoid major issues and problems with your website. In addition, the proactive approach prevents issues from turning into a disaster.
Proactive support and maintenance ensure you run the latest and greatest code. Website hackers are always searching for vulnerable websites with outdated plugins and code. WordPress support reduces your website security exposure by keeping your WordPress website well maintain and up to date.
While support is not free and costs a fair bit, websites with regular maintenance save costs in the long run compared to those without support. These savings are a result of the followings:
It depends on the size and complexity of your website. It also depends on how often you make a change to your website. Another aspect is response time SLA. Do you need out-of-hour support? Finally, who is your support provider? Some are more expensive than others.
Lastly, you don't want just any support provider. You want a partner agency with the expertise and skills to deliver good outcomes. Ask your WordPress agency what they offer in their support contract. What would they be doing every month? How do they plan to keep your site up?
