Your project is complete. Yay! Throw your hands in the air. 😀
But now what?
Just four quick things to bear in mind.
Master & Manage Your Online Presence
We’ve worked hard together to optimise your online presence. Now it’s important to keep it healthy and strong.
Remember three things in this regard.
1. Keep your website’s software up to date.
Always process any updates promptly. Why? For security and performance reasons. One extra security measure you can do immediately is outlined in this easy-to-do tutorial (highly recommended).
There are three kinds of updates you’ll need to process.
(1) Plugin updates
(2) Themify-related theme and framework updates
(3) WordPress-core updates
For each of these updates, you’ll receive a notification in your dashboard. Simply follow the prompts to process your updates. For more info, see this tutorial.
2. Make a regular backup of your website.
How often? This depends on how often you add new content to your site. That said, backing up your site at least once a month is essential. You can normally make backups via your webhost, or if we’ve built your website, you can use the UpdraftPlus plugin we’ve installed for you. Navigate to Settings → UpdraftPlus Backups and then click the blue Backup Now button. It will create a backup in your Google Drive under the name Updraft.
3. Publish fresh content regularly and promote it via social media.
How often? Publish an SEO-strong blog post at least once a month. Need help? Check out the link to our client guides below.
WordPress is the Content Management System we’ve used to build your website. We’ve also installed the incredible Themify Builder so that you can make edits and even create new custom content yourself. Check out this online resource to ensure you’re the master of your own site.
You will also find a “Testing Page” on your website on which you can experiment and play with the Themify Builder. (Navigate to Pages → Testing Page in your WordPress dashboard and have fun!)
Need help? It would be our pleasure to assist.
While we provide a heap of resources to help you master your own path forward, you may find it too time consuming. You won’t be the first to outsource these time-heavy services to focus on other priorities.
For this reason, we offer a website management and copywriting service called Top Star Support.
We take the fuss out of processing updates and backups, we make edits when required, we manage your website at Google and much more. You’ll have a web-guy on call!
