When was the last time you took a long hard look at your website? Nothing like a hard-hitting question right upfront.

So, when was it? I’m emphasising that you need to do this on a regular basis and here is why.

Your website is the only 24/7 advertising tool that you have. It’s online working hard for you all day every day. So why are so many neglected? They are not a set and forget.

Let me ask you another question then. When you visit your #1 advertising tool, and there are broken links and/or the copyright date is <2020 does it make you wonder how current the information is; are you going to find the information that you’re looking for?

Here’s my impression of outdated and unkept websites. They’re bad for business. I for one will not spend money at a website that is less than appealing. So the newsflash here is, I’m not the only one.

There is a solution and it’s pretty simple. If you don’t have a maintenance program with 3Bellas then you need to do this yourself.

  1. Once a month check all the links on your website, make sure they go where they are supposed to.
  2. Update your content regularly, start a blog or update your offer. Google loves active websites.
  3. Keep your plugins up to date. Deactivate ones you are no longer using or delete them altogether.
  4. Always make sure you have the latest version of your website running.
  5. Keep SPAM to a minimum by having some great security plugins, and regularly checking and deleting SPAM comments from your website.

These 5 basic 3Bellas tips are the best way to keep your website working by yourself. You wouldn’t keep your car running without regular service. Your #1 advertising tool needs the same attention.

However, if you don’t have the time to do that, we have some amazing maintenance packages that will keep your website shining like a new penny. If taking care of your site isn’t for you, click here to check out how we can help you.
