Do I Really Need a Care Plan for My Website?

Getting your website maintained isn’t for everyone. Or is it?

Let’s discuss the pros and cons of Care Plans.

Care Plan Basics

Getting a website is only the beginning to your presence online. No matter the type of business you’re in or organization you are a part of, all websites have to be regularly updated and maintained. Let’s get into it.

What is a Care Plan?

Whether you already have a website, or you’re just now thinking of getting one, one thing is certain:

You’re going to need to keep it updated.

You might be thinking ” I really don’t need to be online much. My business isn’t ran online for the most part. I just need folks to find me and understand what I do. I’ve got more important things to worry about.”

And you’re right. You shouldn’t have to worry about the overwhelming tasks that make up having an online presence. But buying a website and leaving it only hurts your business.

 

Why Leaving it Hurts

For starters, keeping it updated shows people who visit your site that you are actively in business. Changing the content at least seasonally ensures that people who come back to visit your online store or site see something that keeps them engaged.

Another reason, and arguably more important, is that when your site sits stagnant for a period of time, it leaves the possibility for an entry point where a hacker can strike. Outdated software, content, and malicious code can affect your site.

You can never guarantee that a hacker won’t get into your site, but you can do things to lessen your chances of it happening.

How nice is it not to worry about a thing?

You get to focus on what you do best, which is run your business.

If you ever need to update minor amounts of information, you just call Spidrbyte and it will be done very shortly.

What if I want to update it myself?

This is a common question that gets asked. Understandably, it’s your site, you should have some control over the content and the operational aspects of it.

And you do! You can update it yourself. Some folks do!

However, each month we get calls saying “I updated this site, and now it’s crashed. HELP!”

This happens pretty often, and it takes some time to recover it. Those folks have to pay the hourly rate for us to fix it. If they would purchase the Care Plan, it would be cheaper in the long run. 

There are a ton of moving parts to a website, and just like gears, they all have to turn to operate the machine.

You can turn to Spidrbyte Web Services to be your “site mechanic.”
