The crux of what we do. Most website issues stem from neglect and in some cases, total abandonment of the back-end. Bandwidth woes, plugin conflicts, storage, mailbox alerts, and other demons need to be fixed!
SPEED THINGS UP
Not quite quantum yet, but current tech does allow for fast load times – if you get it right! We prefer ‘optimal’ to ‘fast’ as it is relative to what you have to work with. Still, there’s a threshold to beat. And you will beat it!
SECURE YOUR SITE
We’ll start with a once-over malware scan. Then, plug in industry standard safety protocols. This, coupled with a routine maintenance plan will help you avoid downtime and host issues. Add backup copy to the list!
DESIGN & MAKEOVERS
The converse is also true. Websites that work great should look the part. Our design team can do wonders with any site that needs refurbishing. Besides, a design upgrade based on new protocols adds stability, safety.
What we manage
Over the years we leaned more and more towards WordPress as the go-to CMS (Content Management System) on which to build and maintain websites. We are now 100% WP based. We still manage HTML5 sites but our focus is on WP themed sites for optimal solutions. We try to be master of one rather than jack of all. Still, no matter what the platform, if we can help, we will!
What needs managing
WordPress is a free open-source CMS that uses a plugin architecture and template system. A major source of disconnect stems from conflicts between plugins per se, plugins and themes, or both at odds with WordPress itself. Then there’s web hosting, caching, CDN, etc. Managing the back-end well ameliorates some of these thorny issues.
Costs to manage
We would say 60% of WordPress sites rely on only a handful of free plugins to function allowing for routine management. Issues arise when outdated plugins pose security risks or conflict with each other or wordpress itself. If nipped in the bud, conflicts are less likely, efficiency goes up and running costs remain low! Check PRICING.
Been there, done that helps. But there’s no substitute for creativity – it sets us apart. Times change, things change, people change. We need to have a finger on the pulse, be in touch with trends, keep up with society yet be fully aware of the whys and wherefores, stay focused and master what dictates buyer intent, what drives moods and most of all, be flexible. You get the drift. We got it and then some.
Over the years, we have had the opportunity to provide premium services to a broad array of clients notably in the property, art, health and entertainment sectors, each with it’s own market nuances and target clientele. One thing they all have in common is a desire to have an online presence that not only looks nice but is optimally functional and user-friendly. We added web management to complete the task. Websites often fade into oblivion for want of good administration at the backend. Make sure you tick the right boxes!
