As a business leader, you manage a constant stream of responsibilities. With so much to handle everyday, there’s no time to worry about the mundane technical tasks of website management. Not to mention the time it would take to actually accumulate the necessary skills. You understand the value of reliable website management services.
Chances are, you came to this conclusion through a firsthand experience. Maybe the site went down right before a campaign launch; or you’re just tired of feeling stressed and overwhelmed because your current website manager dropped the ball again.
The latter happens more often than you think, unfortunately. Many companies come to me with a stressful tale… They hired an unethical service provider who keeps demanding payment, but never actually delivers any value.
Ready to fire your website developer?
Unprofessional, overpriced web developers and designers are the reality for so many businesses today. But it doesn’t have to be your reality. Whatever your company website needs are, let’s talk about them! Contact us today.
Hopefully, you haven’t had to experience this type of website management service. But if this sounds familiar, this first section is for you…
Warning! You’re Getting Scammed By a Web Developer
Based on the countless stories I hear from business managers and their team members, unethical website developers pose a serious problem in my industry. That kind of statement has created some hostile tension between me and my peers, but someone needs to say it.
It’s not my responsibility to pander to my peers. Rather, I’m here to maximize your website’s value — even if that means ruffling some feathers.
These types of unreliable services give all digital professionals a bad name. I’m left working twice as hard to prove we’re not all unreliable, unresponsive and, quite frankly, overpriced. You shouldn’t feel hostage to a web developer refusing to give you access to your content, update your website, keep everything functioning, or even answer a simple email!
On top of all that… website management isn’t even a website developer’s job!
Many developers use website management service contracts as a way to make maximize their income. They build your site then keep you paying a monthly fee even if they aren’t adding value. And the few tasks they DO complete? It’s not their primary (or even secondary) focus!
Your website falls low on their priority list because it’s viewed as “passive” income. You quickly learn how difficult it is to get even the smallest changes implemented. Then things really take a turn when the website goes down for days – or even weeks – without a solution or response.
You deserve better.
Instead, Hire a Value-Driven WordPress Consultant
Businesses rely on a website to serve as a foundational support for brand awareness, lead generation and customer retention. You need a reliable website consultant who cares enough to keep this pillar strong and functional.
I don’t want to drain your budget for easy money. As your WordPress consultant, I’m here to provide the value, attention and technical support your business needs.
Here’s the thing: I’m not a website developer.
I’m not using website management services as easy passive income to support the project that I really enjoy. This is what I really enjoy.
Over a year ago, I completely stopped doing any website development projects. Honestly, building websites didn’t fulfill me. Now, I only sell website management services and WordPress training. I’m happier, and so are my clients!
As your WordPress consultant, I can focus on the small, day-to-day details that keeps everything running smooth. No more agencies ignoring you because there are “more pressing” projects and “more important” clients. I’m here for you, every day.
Characteristics of a Best-In-Class Website Consultant
Okay, so we’ve talked a bit about the dangers creeping in the darker side of my industry. However, there are plenty of us who are value-driven and ethically-based.
Even if you don’t use my services, I want you to know how to tell the heroes from the villains. I want you to find the right consultant who will really give you help with WordPress. With that in mind, here are some characteristics of a best-in-class website consultant…
1. She Shares Progress in a Consistent, Honest Way. If someone isn’t willing to regularly report on the things they’ve accomplished, run far away.
2. She Keeps Her Word and Reliably Executes Deliverables. Plenty of people know how to talk the talk. Make sure you hold them accountable to walk the walk. Ask for references and don’t be afraid to walk away if they can’t meet expectations.
3. She Seeks to Serve Your Company’s Individual Needs. Each website has different needs. Find someone who understands the unique challenges and requirements of your business. Avoid cookie-cutter agreements with anyone who seems disengaged.
4. She Values Authenticity and Loves Teaching. You may not ever want to manage this yourself, but most business owners like to know a bit about everything. Make sure your WordPress consultant is willing and eager to answer your questions.
5. She Prioritizes Responsive Communication. Disasters can happen at any time. It shouldn’t take days (or weeks) to get a response. If something goes wrong, you should trust your consultant will be there with a solution ASAP.

Keep your digital presence stable with website management services for WordPress
There’s a key concept in behavioral economics called sunk cost fallacy. Basically, it’s that voice in your head that keeps saying, “I’ve already spent so much money with this web developer. I can’t afford to drop them now!”
The truth is, you can’t afford NOT to!
Let go of the “professional” that just wants YOU to support THEM with that monthly retainer fee.
Think about all the days or weeks you waited for a simple email response. How many times have you had to ask (or argue) for access to your own content or website?
What if you spent that time on activities to generate new business? Would your company have more customers or greater brand awareness? How many sales have you lost because a lazy website developer didn’t do the job?
It’s time to invest in a website management team that is responsive, reliable and 110% focused on YOU. If that’s what you need, contact us! We’ll discuss your company’s specific needs and how we can be of help .
