Social Media do you need it?

You’re probably using social media for general interaction. However, Social media is a powerful tool for business too. Try not to rush in to everything all at once just because everyone else does, There’s a science behind evaluating and preparing a strategy. Embrace the bigger picture and plan for long term success.

SEO Impact and Consequence

Implementation is rarely understood in depth by the layperson. SEO means being found in search results. Apply SEO and you’ll be found by knowledge seekers, apply targeted SEO to be found by pre qualified leads. Liz show’s you how.

You need SEO more than ever

Creating content for your website without applying the power of SEO, is like assuming your customers are archeologists, in search of something well hidden. If you can’t find your site content, neither can your audience.

Testimonial

I would recommend Liz to anyone looking to develop a custom website.
Liz designed and developed a custom website for me as well as taught me how to use the website functionally and optimally.
In addition to that Liz edited photos, made custom graphics, did my SEO, and setup every aspect of my website.

Now I am free to do what I love best and that’s write and blog my experiences.

Testimonial

We have worked with Liz since January 2014, as well as prior to this during the construction of our new Website.

During this time, and over the years she has spent countless hours helping & training us to understand the inside workings of our website, so we can take charge and publish on our own.

We feel secure knowing she’s there for us in the background every step of the way.

The time, help and patience Liz has provided us with, is nothing but extraordinary, she is always there when we have needed her assistance with changes or adding products.

Her happy nature has made it a pleasure to do business with her. We both highly recommend Liz for any project.

Testimonial

I was struggling trying to set up a website and then I was introduced to Liz Maclean. Since early in 2014, I have been impressed and awed with Liz’s skill and service.

Her business knowledge and understanding of how our general industry works, and her ability to explain everything about our website has helped my growth in understanding available technology, and assisted me to feel more at ease with promoting my product through a website, and other means.

I love, and I am continually amazed at what Liz has done for us, helping us tell our story.

She has always listened carefully and understood quickly what we wanted to create.

She gave it life and let it blossom.
Liz has always responded to questions almost immediately at all hours of the day and night, and address problems very effectively.

She is so easy to work with.

Liz Maclean has organized me in a few other areas, and made my web life a whole lot easier, and, exponentially more professional.

Thank you Liz for for the great relationship and all your tireless efforts.

To whom it may concern

We have been working with Liz since our website was first developed in 2013

Liz has been providing ongoing support and maintaining our website to date, we are pleased with the quality of work and ongoing support service received.

We would like to highlight that Liz is reliable and a solid choice for website owners.

Deadlines have always been met without question.

Perhaps the most unexpected experience we’ve encountered has been Liz’s ‘can-do’ attitude towards our ideas.

Liz has always said “everything’s possible”. Through our experiences working with Liz, I believe it is.

Our team would not hesitate to recommend Liz.

Yours sincerely

Liz Maclean Testimonial by The Watershed Water Systems

Testimonial

To whom it may concern

Liz Maclean has been extremely helpful over the years since first being introduced to me and re-building our company website (The Watershed Water Systems) in 2008.

Liz has always been enthusiastic, when discussing trends and marketing ideas, and has worked tirelessly to meet the company’s website needs and objectives.

All technical details regarding the website were explained in a way that was easily understood, rather than the usual industry jargon which we had previously experienced prior to working with Liz..

When new tasks were required the refreshing difference was that Liz acted expediently, never leaving the company in limbo, including working after-hours and into the night.

Due to our frenetically busy schedule, Liz autonomously maintained the front and back ends, updated content on the website regularly, as well as keeping up with essential seasonal market changes necessary within our industry.
We have always been very happy with Liz’s ongoing services, and highly recommend Liz to others.

It is my understanding that Liz continues to manage this website for the new owners.

Yours sincerely,

Managed Site Maintenance

.
Why do websites need to be maintained on a technical level?
.
All websites require ongoing maintenance to ensure they remain functionally sound and work as expected. The highest expectation is ensuring visitor experience remains optimized. All websites are vulnerable to being compromised. These responsibilities should never be neglected, this means regular general software maintenance routines are not only essential, they are frequently critical.
.
What is general maintenance?
.
General maintenance Includes common tasks like; software updates to the content management platforms, updates or revisions to framework files, themes, custom design and layouts. Plugins contribute towards providing website functionality therefore require updating frequently, as well as testing and resolving compatibility issues with other plugins. Not forgetting full site backups, and regular database backups. As browsers evolve, new versions become installed on devices and PC’s, therefore testing web pages for browser compatibility is also important, Technology is evolving daily, the internet evolves with it. Your Website needs to evolve and move forward with technology changes too. Website maintenance is broad spectrum and vast.
.
Payload at the minimum
.
Sadly, website owners who fail to keep up with technology, by neglecting site maintenance, software updates and related tasks, like resolving redundant code errors, fixing bugs, repairing broken links, updating redundant incompatible plugins and much more, inevitably run the risk of their website becoming broken or functioning poorly, if it’s functioning at all. This always leads to high bounce rates, low page rank and paying the ultimate price of losing valuable leads, business, visitor conversions and sales.

Which one of those losses matters most? is it sales, sales or perhaps it could even be sales! You’ are right, it’s a no brainer.
.
Website maintenance is the invisible quiet achiever working in the shadows behind everything else that matters.
.
Maintaining security
.
Security updates are imperative more than ever in today’s world as new threats arise from the depths of hell. Therefore monitoring security as threats are paramount to prevent debilitating DDos and Bruit force attacks, while helping to prevent hackers entering through back doors. Hackers who successfully access a website, leads to undesirable and or illegal behavior leaving a website vulnerable, damaged and severely compromised.
.
Website Owners Worst Nightmare
.
Damage control is not only embarrassing, it’s time consuming and expensive, at minimum, damaging to your brand, page rank, business, brand and personal reputations depending on the extent of damage caused. It isn’t unusual for a compromised website’s reputation to take 6 months or much longer to repair.

Waking up one morning to find your beautiful website compromised, displaying undesirable or illegal content on your home page, even worse, is noticing links within your site or leading off your site to the unimaginable. Damage control is a website owner’s worst nightmare. A repair task requiring advanced technical knowledge and skills.
Don’t think for a second it couldn’t happen to you. Contact Liz for a chat about website maintanance and security.
