Maintenance and Support for your Website
Let us take care of it
While some choose to maintain their website themselves, neglecting it entirely is not a good option. Sooner or later something will go wrong and it will end up costing a lot more to fix it than it would have to just maintain. Things that can go wrong:
- A contact form breaks and people try to contact you but you never get the message.
- A hacker gets into your website and turns it into a scam store in Japan (actually happened!).
- A critical update is missed and leaves your website exposed to hackers.
- Parts of your website break causing your company to look unprofessional.
Hackers are out in full force!
About 6 months ago, one of my own websites, kileconstruction.com, was hacked by someone who created a Japanese eCommerce store that sold fake products. Luckily we caught it within a month, but a lot of damage had already been done. My website was showing up on Google for tons of weird stuff. To this day there are still some of my webpages in Google showing even though they don’t actually exist anymore. It won’t be much longer and Google will stop showing them entirely.
I was very lucky that we caught it early because we were able to reverse the damage being done and rescue the website. This is important because this website brings in 20+ high quality leads every month for my family’s remodeling business. To lose that would have been a huge blow to us.
This example shows how important it is to be paying attention to your website on a regular basis. A website is usually the first impression people get for you and your business so keeping it an A+ makes everything else in the business easier.
