Christmas is a hectic time for us all, what with buying presents and trying to get all your work finished before the break, so your website is probably the last thing on your mind… but it shouldn’t be!
The start of the New Year is the perfect time to re-market your business and give it a fresh, new look. So, it’s important to start planning for it now. I’m sure you all have business goals and targets for 2018, so ensuring your new website is up and running at the start of the year will give you a better chance of achieving those goals.
However, it’s extremely important to remember that your website is for life and not just for Christmas!
We understand that purchasing a new website can be costly and a lot of people don’t want to pay on-going fees each month. But, avoiding having a maintenance package increases the risk of your website being hacked or breaking, which could mean the upfront website cost has been a complete waste of money!
30,000 websites are hacked on a DAILY basis, so it’s extremely important to ensure it’s kept as secure as possible, by way of carrying out daily backups and updating the website regularly.
Broken websites i.e. pages not loading or broken contact forms also leave a bad impression to current and potential customers. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that the content is checked regularly to avoid missing out on sales and to make sure the user is given the best experience possible.
Here at Fertile Frog, we offer a hosting and maintenance plan which includes up to three hours of updated and maintenance every month. This means your website stays more secure and protected from hackers as we carry out daily backups and monitor security 24/7.
