Every website requires some level of maintenance. This is especially true for business websites. Doing any sort of business through your website means that products and/or services need to be updated from time to time.
Some of the items that come to mind include:
- Changing a price for a holiday discount
- Updating product descriptions/images
- Removing discontinued/out-of-stock items
Not to mention, if you have a blog or news feed on your website, you probably add new content to it regularly. While delegating these sort of tasks to a tech savvy team member might work in the short-term, it’s probably taking time away from their ACTUAL work.
And what about the more technical tasks that need to be taken care of? Things like setting up page forwarding/301 redirects, creating email accounts, blocking IP addresses from certain countries, etc.
Is someone on your team (or maybe even yourself) “Google searching” their way to solutions? And if you are a Solopreneur, most likely you are handling all of your web related items on your own. Which means you have to allocate time from running your business in order to make sure your online presence is solid.
