I say it all the time: a website left unupdated is a dead one. If you don’t update or provide new content for people to keep checking in on, you will lose visitors.
Another thing that people don’t often concern themselves enough with is keeping their website secure. If you do not update your CMS (content management system such as WordPress) and your plugins for long periods of time, you put your website at risk for spamming and hacking. If you aren’t willing to log in at least once a month, you obviously aren’t updating your website with new content, and you’re also not backing up and securing your website’s design and functionality.
While I do offer web maintenance on a monthly or quarterly payment invoice, I am also happy to do a one-hour training system that helps you to take control of your website in a way that will empower you to do some of these things without me. At the end of the day, the choice is up to you!
