Website Updates keep your website secure and fresh!

Websites are great tools for building trust with potential customers

They help you showcase your business and allow people to learn more about your products and services prior to making a buying decision.

But as the saying goes “Left unattended problems only intensify.”  – Mary Kay Ash.  It’s no different with your website.  According to HubSpot, 94% of the visitors closed websites and stopped trusting the site if it has a degraded web design and 48% of the visitors voted website design as the number one factor in affecting the credibility of the website.  You have less than 10 seconds to make an impression on a user, is your website up to it? Don’t let your website drive away potential customers.  Let’s clean it up!

 

Website Updates

I’ll work with you to update your current website and then I’ll help you maintain it!

Websites age quicker than anyone wants to admit! The online landscape has had major changes in the past couple of months with Google making a full court press into mobile first. If your website isn’t mobile ready and fully responsive, the Google changes could be the game winning shot for the other team.

Increase the effectiveness of your website by updating the structure and layout of your pages to be mobile ready, more user friendly, and pleasing to the eye.

The pieces that matter!

The what, when, why, and how matters in creating a great website that performs. Here are the pieces that matter.

Basic Web Page Updates

Refresh your images, remove old events or outdated promotions, update the copyright date in your footer, remove the blog you haven’t posted to since 2014 or any other basic update needed to refresh your site and provide a clean pleasant user experience.

 

Platform Updates

Platforms like WordPress, Wix, SquareSpace and others roll out regular updates to their software platforms. I can help you complete those updates on a regular basis to ensure your website is secure and functioning properly.

 

Widget & Plugin Updates

Just like the platform updates many website platforms allow you to install and use third party plugins and widgets to enhance the functionality of your website. Those third parties also update their software on a regular basis to work correctly with the current version of your platform. These need to be updated on a regular basis to ensure your website is secure and functioning properly.

 

Security Updates

Add an SSL certificate! For the last couple of years Google has been making changes around securing user data to keep your online experience private when using a website. A site without an SSL Certificate (http://) is vulnerable to hackers intercepting any data your users enter into forms on your website. The SSL Certificate (https://) adds a layer of security that stops this from happening. See my blog Why you need an SSL Certificate for your small business website for more information.

 

Sitemap Submission

XML Sitemaps are important for SEO. These sitemaps make it easier for Google, Bing, and Yahoo to find your sites pages. Google doesn’t just rank sites it ranks web PAGES. I can create an XML sitemap for you and submit it to Google for indexing. This whole process gets your site talking to Google and that’s a very good thing.

 

One Off Projects

If you’re looking for a one time project update or functionality like a form or page added, I do that too!  If you don’t see what you need above I’m happy to talk with you about how we can work together.

Lisa met with me in person for a complimentary information/planning session which was important to me because a big portion of my project revolved around website security.  She was very responsive to questions, did a great job designing to my desired look. She was very easy to work with and provided me with several options for on-going support. Oh, and the patience. Goodness, the patience! Thank you, Lisa!!”
