Managing a Custom WordPress Website is Easier than You Think

The idea of having a website can seem overwhelming when you consider yourself to be technically challenged, and the idea of having a website that you manage yourself might seem even more daunting. Paying someone to manage and update your website for you seems like a convenient, safe, option but it is costly. Below I address some of the concerns we hear from clients.

“I’m not a techie”

The truth is you really don’t have to be a “techie” in order to have a customized WordPress website. Its purpose is to make it easy to update content on your own with pages and sections that are customized, and easily manipulated to suit your content. If you’re familiar with the basics of word processing software, you can easily manage a WordPress website.

“What if I accidentally delete something?”

Many new clients are concerned with accidentally deleting work when they’re updating their website. WordPress allows for multiple revisions to be stored, so you can easily “undo” mistakes, and when editing or creating pages you can preview them before making them live. If you do accidentally make something live just simply change its status. WordPress makes it easy to toggle between the backend of the site where content is managed, and the frontend of the site, which is what users see.

“What happens if I break the website?”

We provide thorough training before a website is handed over to you to begin entering content, and our team of talented web developers and account managers is always available for follow-up questions. As a result, it’s extremely rare that a client breaks their website. However, we can always be reached to help with urgent website matters.

“I’m busy, can you just do the content updates for me?”

Sure! We offer maintenance packages where you can purchase blocks of time on a monthly basis, and all you have to do is send us an email or give us a call, and tell us what you would like us to do.

Our clients are thrilled with their customized WordPress websites that give them control over content and updates. There’s no more waiting for updates to be made by someone else. They log in to the backend and do it themselves, and see their updates appear automatically simply by hitting “Update.” It’s that easy! Contact us for more information!
