Ongoing Maintenance, Content Updates, and Optimization
Is your website critical to your organization’s success? A good website can generate new leads, attract donors or customers, and engage your users. As a fundamental component of your nonprofit or business, you want peace of mind that your website will be up and available 24/7 without interruption. Keeping your website up to date, backed up, secure, and monitored is time consuming. These routine tasks distract you from what you really should be doing – running your business!
How We Can Help Maintain Your Website
Our website care plans can keep your website up and running and open for business. We will perform all the required maintenance, monitor your website, and get notified if any problems arise, and perform an unlimited number of small tasks every month. We know the WordPress CMS platform and we’ve been using it ourselves for over 15 years. In fact, all of our own websites (including this one) are built on the same software.
Our Website Care Plans Include the Following Services
Unlimited Small Tasks
A small or common task is any WordPress task that can be performed within 30 minutes by our expert WordPress developers.
If you have a small fix or change request for your website, save time requesting estimates from developers and let us do it for you. If we accepted your task and confirmed that it fits our small task criteria, we won’t charge you extra – even if we spend more than 30 minutes completing your task, so risk is on us. To give you an idea of a common tasks, see WP Small Tasks. Available with Base & Pro plans.
The primary reason for updating content and features of your website is to keep it fresh at all times.
With WebsiteSteward on your team, we will ensure proper implementation of changes and updates in a timely manner and seek approvals prior to publishing content live to your website. We are here to work for you, to your specifications. We take pride in listening to our clients’ needs and fulfilling them accurately and in a timely fashion. Available with Base & Pro plans.
Protect your websites with a backup that will serve you reliably and consistently.
Backup is the cornerstone of our WordPress website management. If an update fails or your website crashes, it’s imperative to have an up-to-date backup of your website. WebsiteSteward takes the load off your mind by running scheduled backups and making sure that up-to-date backup is always ready. And our backups are incremental and run off site. Available with Base & Pro plans.
Managed Updates, Plugins, & Themes
We perform regular WordPress core updates to ensure that you have the latest version. This keeps your site secure and running smoothly.
Managing plugins and themes is a big time-eater! Going through all of your websites to check what needs updating or installing will consume precious hours. We can manage your plugin and theme updates. To improve performance and security on your website, we also monitor your plugins and themes to ensure they are compatible. Available with Base & Pro plans.
The worst thing about malware is that it could be on your website for months without you even noticing. You need to be vigilant, proactive, and check regularly for malware and known vulnerabilities. That’s where our Security Check comes in.
The Security Check makes it easy for you to ensure that all of your sites are clean, and if any files become infected, you will be able to spot them on time. In one click you can scan websites and receive valuable security information, as well as have an overview of all the past security scans. Stop being in the dark when it comes to your security. Available with Base & Pro plans.
24/7 Uptime Monitor
We keep an eye on your websites for you and send you an instant notification when your website goes down, so you can get it back online before anyone else notices.
Our Uptime Monitor saves you time worrying about what websites are up by instantaneously notifying you if a website goes down, giving you a chance to fix the problem before it becomes serious. When your WordPress website is down, you’re losing visitors and, with that, revenue. Uptime Monitor makes sure that this doesn’t happen to you. Available with Pro plan.
A slow website will hurt your business a lot. That’s why you need to benchmark your website performance regularly and react if something goes wrong.
Our Performance Check gives you insight into what is happening with your website and how it’s performing. It’s the first step to solving your problems; the Performance Check tells you what they are. It gives you a breakdown of the factors affecting your website. You can see each individual factor and its grade, as well as receive recommendations on how to improve your website performance. You can also follow your website performance over time, marked on a timeline. Available with Pro plan.
SEO Ranking is the bread and butter of many businesses. We keep track of up to 25 of your keyword ranking changes, find out who your competitors are, and how you stack up against them.
You no longer have to separately find, monitor, and record your keywords. Our SEO ranking tool gives you all the key metrics in one place for all of your websites. Not only that, but it shows you your main competitors, saving you going out there and looking for yourself. It also gives you a timeline of how you rank, better or worse, and tracks your ranking position for you. Available with Pro plan.
Unresponsive or broken links are not good for SEO and can lead to poor user experience, lost revenue, and lost visitor trust. Luckily, our Link Monitor solves these problems for you.
You’ll get automatic checks and alerts for any unresponsive or broken links on the sites you are monitoring. This lets you quickly deal with any broken link issues and avoid any negative impacts on SEO, user experience, or revenue. Available with Pro plan.
