For small businesses aiming to stay competitive, a secure, easy to use website is essential. Chattanooga-based A Fearless Venture (aka AFV) understands the vital role that maintenance plays in supporting not just your website, but your business.
Your Website = Your Foundation
Even if you’re a bricks-and-mortar business, a well-maintained website acts as the digital storefront of your business. It’s often the first point of contact between you and potential customers. Ensuring your site is in top-performaing condition is not only a matter of your professionalism, but also a strategic move to stand out in what is now a very crowded online marketplace.
Website Security: A Cornerstone of Trust
Online security is a significant concern for both businesses and website users alike, for good reason. In an age of data breaches and cyber threats, maintaining the security of your website is an absolute necessity.
Many small business owners think they’re too small to be targeted, which unfortunately plays right into hackers’ hands. Without adequate security measures, their website becomes vulnerable to attacks, potentially compromising sensitive customer data. Site Care isn’t only maintenance; it keeps your site safe.
SEO and Rankings
Search engines reward websites that are regularly updated, fast-loading, and user-friendly. Neglecting website maintenance can lead to slow loading times, broken links, and outdated content – all of which negatively impact your search engine rankings. While Site Care alone won’t correct all these problems, it offers an excellent start.
Our Experienced Approach to Website Maintenance
With Site Care, you’ll benefit from a thorough approach to website care that includes so much more than maintenance (although that’s super important and our top job):
- Enhanced Security: AFV takes care of your website’s security, protecting it from malicious attacks and potential threats. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your site is being actively monitored and protected.
- Improved Performance: With regular performance monitoring, AFV ensures that your website runs smoothly and efficiently. You’ll know if your loading speed begins to affect visitor experience.
- Minimized Downtime: AFV keeps a close eye on your site’s uptime and promptly notifies you if any issues arise. All websites experience small blips here and there, but we know when there’s a pattern that suggests further action.
- Hassle-Free Updates: We personally perform regular updates for your website’s plugins and themes. By keeping everything up-to-date, you benefit from improved security and performance without having to worry about the technical details.
- Insightful Monthly Reports: With Site Care, you receive detailed monthly reports that provide insights into your website’s security, performance, and traffic. You’ll stay informed about the health and status of your website — without getting bogged down in the technical details.
In short, Site Care helps you focus on your business while leaving the website-related tasks to trusted professionals (us!).
The Benefits of Partnering with A Fearless Venture
Even if you never meet us in person, knowing your site is cared for by a local company can provide extra peace of mind. We have long-time clients in places as far flung as Australia and Bulgaria, so we (and they) definitely have this remote work thing down.
But, there’s something to be said for knowing we could meet up at OddStory, or even for just being in the same time zone. Or maybe an hour off — we see you, Marion County 😉
Expertise You Can Trust
We’ve done this WordPress thing since about 2011, and started building websites long before that. Also, well before it was fun.
We’ve been in business for ourselves since 2009, and we’re a very small team. So we get you, mom & pop businesses, and you, too, solopreneurs. If you want to know how to accomplish anything web related with minimal hassle or on a tiny budget, we’ve probably been there/done that. So shoot us an email and ask.
Our website maintenance services are tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you only pay for what you require. This cost-effective approach guarantees you get the most value for your investment. You’ll receive a basic but robust level of care, for a reasonable price. If you require any fixes or additions, as a Site Care customer you’ll receive a discount on every request.
While we do keep regular weekday business hours, we monitor your site 24/7. If we detect something serious enough to take your site down, we’re on it, lickety split. When you’re a Site Care client, we get to know your site. Inside and out. When you’re ready to upgrade or make changes, you’ll already have a trusted partner who knows you and your site well.
