Protect your investment with a WordPress Care Plan.

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 new custom WordPress website design projects come with three months of my Essentials Care Plan absolutely free ($150 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.

All Care Plans are billed as a recurring monthly fee. The prices you see above are charged per month in Canadian dollars.

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.

Included with all plans.

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 all plans.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Included in the Essentials and Total Care Plans.

Never worry about whether your site is online or not again. With 24/7 uptime monitoring, I will keep an eye on your website for you and send you an instant notification via email if your website goes down so you can get it back online before anyone else notices.

Included in the Total Care Plan.

While WordPress makes it pretty easy to update the content on your pages and posts, sometimes you need a little help. Maybe your navigation menu isn’t showing up on mobile or maybe you need to add a new page to your site but you aren’t sure how. 15 minute Quick Fixes give you the ability to ask for a quick hand without having to pay an hourly rate or minimum charge. You’ll get two of these quick fixes included in your Total care plan each calendar month. To use them, just send me an email with your request.

IMPORTANT: Quick fixes are limited to tasks that can be performed in 15 minutes or less. If you have a larger task and you would like, you are free to combine your two 15 minute fixes to create a single 30 minute fix. All quick fixes will be completed during regular business hours.

Hiring a professional to take care of your WordPress website can add peace of mind, help you improve your website’s performance, or just free up time for other things but you absolutely can update your website yourself if you’re willing to learn how! As luck would have it, I wrote a blog post to teach you how to update your website yourself. Go have a read if you’d rather handle things on your own. Just make sure you back up that site before you hit the update button!
