Until now, did you think it was too expensive to have your website managed for you by reliable professionals? Lots of small business owners do. But you need a website. So you've been managing your website on your own. Even though it takes you away from what you're really passionate about. Even though you'd rather be sharing your unique gift with the world - and getting more sales.
Even though you're already too busy.
Inevitably, your website gets updated less often than you'd like it to. Your content gets stale. It happens to everybody. And it can get worse. Random glitches come up that mess up your layout or make your menu twitchy. Hackers break into your site and use it to send spam. Or to redirect your poor visitors to seedy online pharmacies, or worse.
Your website has become a source of stress for you.
Technical issues will come up. But most of them are preventable, and all of them are easy to repair. However it does requires some technical knowledge to know what action to take. Or to even be aware of an issue in the first place.
More importantly, it takes time to learn this stuff. It takes time to maintain your site. That's time you could be spending with your customers. Or with your family.
You're building a business based on your unique approach to solving a problem. You should spend most of your time engaging with and educating people about your approach - and then solving their problem. Learning how to format text, trying to align a photo, finding out how to re-order the tabs at the top of your site... and otherwise tinkering with your website is not the best use of your time.
Especially if you don't love doing it.
If the website fairy offered to handle everything - updating content, security, upgrades, hosting, blah, blah, blah - and the fairy would do it all reliably, and for free, would you accept the offer?
Of course. It frees up your time, reduces your stress, and lets you focus on your strengths. The only thing outlandish about this offer is the cost. And maybe the fairy.
So if the cost were reasonable, you'd love to have your website managed by professionals.
As a client, you can email website content or minor design customizations to us any time, and we'll get the site updated within a couple days, usually within 24 hours. We handle all the technical stuff. You don't even need to log into the control panel if you don't want to.
You can simply email content updates or design changes and we'll take care of them for you.
Everything is kept up to date, and we set up additional security measures that monitor activity to prevent hackers and spammers from taking over your site.
Your content is backed up daily, and your website files are backed up weekly. So if something unexpected does happen, we can quickly restore to an earlier version of your site.
We set up and maintain Google Analytics on your site, and set up a customized dashboard and weekly email report for you. This will provide insight into search engine rankings and how people are using your site.
We'll set up advanced caching and compression to improve the loading times of your pages. This will make your visitors happy and well help with search engine rankings as well.
The goal of Wordpress Concierge is essentially this: We provide the professional website support you need, so you can focus more on growing your business. And it's affordable, even if you're just getting started with a brand new, part-time side business.
If you're not already using Wordpress, we can help you transition your existing content into a fresh design. If you don't even have a website up yet, we can get you started.
You can get in touch with us right now at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a new service model, and to make sure that we take good care of everyone, we have to limit the number of websites we're managing at any one time. We're limiting it to 40 sites for now. We'll most likely open it up again in early 2015.
