WordPress Maintenance and Care

Websites need a little ongoing TLC

I offer monthly maintenance packages as an add-on to your Website in 1 day to ensure your website is a top performer 100% of the time

Let me take care of your virtual home with one of my monthly WordPress Maintenance packages.

It’s great to have a beautiful, new home but all homes have upkeep.

When you get a new house you walk in and there is that new home smell. Everything looks shiny and pristine, what happens after a couple of years? Things lose their shine, the paint needs another lick.

This is the same with your website although it won’t be a couple of years but more so a couple of weeks. The internet is constantly updating that it could make anyone confused and overwhelmed, leave the updates to me!

Websites are never static but think of them as moving parts that need constant oiling and cleaning in order to perform at it its peak performance. This is why I recommend maintenance and care plans with your lovely new website.

Your website needs love and care to work optimally. You can either give it the love it needs or I have Website Care Plans where I do it for you.

You Still Hold The Keys

At the end of the day, it’s your website. You are in full control.

I update the site every week and tend to the backend and technical bits for you so your website is always healthy and happy.

More time for…who cares!

Who needs to be bogged down with tasks that you don’t like and are not in your area of genius.

Enjoy your time while I keep your site updated, secure and looking epic.

WordPress Maintenance FAQ

No, you can self-host and manage your own site ongoing.

I recommend care plans as WordPress.org is constantly evolving and we will get your website in tip-top shape so you can focus on the reason you started your business.

If you do not have a care plan with me you will be responsible for your website, licenses and ongoing maintenance.

Yes, I build WordPress Websites in 1 day. I am very experienced in WordPress Development, website design, strategy, UX and SEO.

I am a technical developer with many years of SEO experience and am very focused on building your website correctly so that search engines love it. I only use premium themes and plugins that I have trialled and tested.

Yes, I am very experienced with Self Hosted WordPress.Org and it’s my preferred way to build a website for many reasons.

At my digital agency, we have clients with Wix, Squarespace, Shopify and other platforms but I prefer to personally work only with Self Hosted WordPress.

Yes, of course, I do work by the hour.

These additional hours are great for those:

  • on care plans needing more work ($100 AUD per hour)
  • If you are not on a care plan and your site breaks down or you would like some attention and minor tweaks done to your site in any way the cost is $150 AUD per hour (minimum of 2hrs).

A question people love to ask but the answer they hate to hear. Digital Marketing requires consistent ongoing work. A search engine optimised website will help you with google rankings but other marketing channels are required to get your business humming.

Digital marketing is still the number one way to get the traffic flowing through your website’s revolving doors.

Paid Media and Ads, Social Media Marketing, Guest Blogs and SEO are the main ways for businesses to gain more website traffic.

No, at Lara P Digital I only offer WordPress VIP Intensive, 1 Day website builds and 1-1 Training. However, I can recommend a great marketing agency that can handle this for you.
