I just added a post about maintenance plans for small business websites on my business site, CahillDigital.com. If you own a site, you definitely need to read this one.
Let me say this clearly: your website is often the first place customers go before they call you. What do you think they do when they see a broken website?
They go elsewhere.
You invest in your website and you invest in your brand. That means you need to ensure they’re being properly maintained. At the very least:
- Update software and plugins regularly. If not monthly, certainly quarterly.
- Keep your information up to date – do a monthly check that your info is correct.
- Check that all means of contact through your website work – check all forms are properly submitting, emails are being received, etc.
- Know when your domain expires and be sure it renews well ahead of time.
