Monthly Care Plan
Security. Maintenance. Support.
I'm Jo, Web Designer & Founder
My number one goal when designing websites is helping your business grow. But what about after your website goes live? My help doesn’t need to end.
My Monthly Care Plan will save you hours upon hours each month. You can leave all the updating and monitoring to an expert so that you can focus on what you do best – running your business.
How I Can Help
Ongoing Website Care
Security & Protection
Security breaches can be detrimental to your company. Get extra protection from hackers, bugs, plugin conflicts, and other website malfunctions.
An un-optimized site can lead to poor performance, slow loading times and a gradual loss of Google SEO rankings. I will keep your website fully optimized.
Make informed decisions with custom analytics reports tracking website activity such as page views, acquisition sources, demographics and website visitor behaviour.
Need a new image posted or a price change? My plan includes one hour of updating the website with new content or making any changes requested.
Need a hand with anything? My plan includes one hour of support by phone, email or video to help with any troubleshooting, technical difficulties or “how to” training.
Have reassurance that you won’t lose content as I take monthly backups to remote storage to ensure your site can easily be restored from the last backup for any reason.

Why Updates Matter
Once a website is live, it’s essential to protect it from malware and hackers that can take your site down and destroy your Google rankings.
Over 50% of all web traffic is currently spammers, bots, malware and hackers.
The #1 leading cause of website hacks is out of date plugins, themes and WordPress itself. It’s essential to keep ALL of your plugins updated regularly.
My plan will save you the time, energy and trouble of manually completing 10-20 updates (one by one) each month.
Updates - What's Involved
Properly Updating Your Website
Your pixel perfect website looks great when it’s launched but it could be the next day, the next month or the next year when you update one plugin and it wreaks havoc on the rest of the site.
One plugin update can conflict with another and suddenly all your formatting is gone, your menu isn’t working or items are missing. Plugin updates can cause a tsunami of issues throughout your website and it can be difficult to pinpoint and fix the problem.
How I Carefully Update Your Site
Manually Back Up Your Website
Before updating any plugin, theme, or WordPress itself, I take a manual offsite backup that goes to remote storage so your content can be easily restored should any plugin update malfunction or conflict with other tools on your website.
Update One Plugin At a Time
I update each plugin one at a time and perform various tests to ensure there are no conflicts throughout the website. Once clear, I move onto the next plugin and repeat the process.
On average, there are 10-20 updates each month.
Fix or Restore
If there is a conflict, I will either try to fix the issue or restore your website to it’s previous version.
As a member of several web developer communities, I have an ear to the ground on plugin updates and I often hear warnings that certain updates are unstable.
Report & Monitor
I provide monthly reports on the updates that have been completed and monitor your site for any issues.
You can have peace of mind knowing that an expert is updating and monitoring your website and you can focus on running your business.
