Benefits of a Website Maintenance Contract

Entrepreneurs have used consultants and contractors as a strategy for growing their business, while eliminating the need to hire full-time employees. Whether large or small, outsourcing can be a very smart business decision.

Here are 6 benefits of a website maintenance contract:

1.) Keep focused on your core business

One of the biggest challenges of maintaining a website is your time. More often than not, business owners and marketing directors just don’t have time to keep up with it. Sound familiar?

More importantly, the best use of your time is developing and driving the business and strategy. And not spending more time trying to remember how to do website updates, changes and tasks.

The Elwood Studio can achieve the same tasks plus more in a fraction of the time. And we bring in the knowledge of search engine optimization (SEO), website security and best practices at the same time.

2.) Reduce company payroll and expenses

Most small businesses do not need a full-time (or even a part-time) employee to keep their website up-to-date. And larger businesses often need extra help with specific tasks or functions. It is more cost-effective to work with an outside agency where you don’t have the added expense of health insurance, benefits, and other costs and overhead associated with hiring employees.

Contract with the Elwood Studio to handle your web maintenance for a fraction of what you would pay an employee.

3.) Leverage the expertise of dedicated webmasters

Is your strength in website development and web hosting? Do you understand how to minimize the risks and vulnerabilities associated with having a public website? Are you up on the latest changes in the search engine world? If not, then outsourcing your web maintenance may be for you.

When working with an agency, you gain access to a broad range of expertise all of which can be focused on helping you grow your business. These include experts in technology, graphic design, web hosting, SEO and more.

Elwood Studio can provide the technological and professional expertise that you may not have in-house. Additionally, we have the experience of managing many other websites that can be applied to your benefit.

4.) Protect your site and your company’s reputation

Dealing with a hacked website can take up enormous amounts of your time, it can also cause a lack of trust with visitors coming to your site.

One of the most frequent reasons a website becomes infected is not keeping up with the latest security patches. Websites today are under constant attack, on both the web hosting server and the software actually running the website. This is especially true of WordPress and other open source websites.

Elwood Studio is intimately familiar with website systems, software and programs and we regularly monitor, and implement updates while maintaining backups – keeping your site secure and your reputation intact.

5.) More Engaging and Effective

Do you know what UI/UX means? User interface design and user experience is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the user and your website and/or applications (apps).

Elwood Studio will help you create content that provides value to your users while communicating your brand’s unique personality. Develop and populate content that attracts, and encourages visitors to return. Strong call to action and strategic placement of buttons will drive prospects to a desired response.

6.) Search engine optimization to increase user traffic

Search engines continually update their algorithms and the competitive landscape is constantly in flux. Keeping up with the latest trends in search engine optimization and making regular updates and additions to your site content are critical to maintaining and improving your search engine ranking.

Elwood Studio can help you track your progress through web analytics, maintain blogs and other content, make recommendations on future strategy, and help you get the most out of your website investment.
