Successful business owners care about three key things when it comes to their brand: their reputation, the bottom line, and how to save time by making processes more efficient. After all, time is money. It may be a cliché but for business owners, the saying is essential to abide by to see profitable growth.

One of the ways to save time and grow is to outsource administrative tasks, such as the maintenance of your website. A WordPress maintenance package can free up your headspace so you can focus on the daily running of your business.

Some of the most common website tasks that can be outsourced through a WordPress maintenance package are listed below.

WordPress theme, core and plugin updates

New features are added and regularly improved within WordPress and if your WordPress Core, theme and plugins are not up to date, your website slowly becomes less secure and stable. This will lead to a poor experience for your visitors and can negatively impact your search engine ranking, which is why you need to check frequently for updates.

Themes are the framework that make up your site’s design and performance and plugins can be added to your WordPress site to increase its functionality – from creating forms to adding visual effects.

Investing in a WordPress maintenance package will give you peace of mind that you are running the most up to date version of every aspect of your WordPress site.

WordPress security monitoring and protection

Apart from negatively impacting your reputation and potentially compromising your visitors, search engines are known to blacklist a malware infected website leaving it virtually invisible to search traffic.

The security of your website is something that should, ideally, be top of mind but is likely to be something that goes unnoticed most of the time. Signing up for a WordPress maintenance package will mean your website’s security is continuously monitored with the necessary precautions taken to protect your site from vulnerabilities.

Spam comment cleansing

As a website owner, it’s great to see growth in incoming traffic, but the downside is that when your site begins to gain traction, the number of spam comments it receives also increases. Most of the spam comments come from automated spam bots and if you don’t moderate them you’ll find it can reduce your SEO score and significantly slow down your site.

This is an onerous task to keep on top of so you will be pleased to hear that through a WordPress maintenance package, they will clear any comments from your database and prevent any more from returning.

SEO optimisation

There’s so much to learn when it comes to maximising opportunities to grow your online presence. SEO can be a tricky terrain to navigate but a basic understanding has become essential for all business owners who want to see their brand become a household name.

The difficulty is that best practices change regularly and the initial work to bring your site up to speed is extremely time-consuming and monotonous.

These are just some of the many maintenance tasks that are important on any site. It’s possible to perform all the maintenance updates yourself, but it can be time-consuming and risky when you don’t know how to do it properly, which is why it’s often better to have them performed by a professional developer.
