WordPress Peace of Mind Program

Do the work you love, not the tech maintenance you don’t.

One broken string…and the entire instrument is silent.

Are you:

  • Afraid to press the “Upgrade Now” button in your WordPress dashboard because you fear you might accidentally break your site?
  • Worried by the never-ending stream of plugin updates that bring up that same fear of “what if I break it”?
  • Not even sure what all those plugins are doing?
  • Confused about how to back up your site and keep it backed up?
  • Wishing you could concentrate on your business, instead of worrying about whether your website is vulnerable?

Restore your Peace of Mind with a Website Tune-Up!

If you’re stressed about backing up your WordPress site, upgrading your themes, plugins, and WordPress itself, I can take care of all of that for you with a quick Website “Peace of Mind” Tune-Up.

You’ll be up-to-date, backed up, and secure in the knowledge that you’re on a par with WordPress experts and their best security practices.

Sign up today and you’ll be tuned up within a week.

Future updates? I’ve got you covered.

Even after your tune-up is complete, there will come a day when WordPress will need updating, or a plugin releases a new version.

Never worry about those updates again with the ongoing Peace of Mind Program. Not only will your site be tuned up, it will stay that way, and get the security benefits of always running the latest, most secure version of WordPress.

Here’s what’s included in your initial Website “Peace of Mind” Tune-Up:

  1. A full site backup with SolidBackups
  2. Automatic weekly backup scheduled for you
  3. A scan for malware and server malfunctions/vulnerabilities using WordFence
  4. Optimize your WordPress database
  5. WordPress software upgraded to the latest version (as long as you’re starting with version 6.0 or higher — contact me for a custom quote if you’re using an older version)
  6. Updating of all plugins that have available new versions
  7. Updating your theme if a new version is available
  8. Updating the PHP version of your site to 8.2+ (if your web host allows it)
  9. Another full site backup once everything is optimized and updated
  10. Installation and configuring of a free LetsEncrypt SSL Certificate to securely encrypt your website traffic and display the “green padlock icon” next to your site address (your web host must allow this, and sadly, not all hosts do — contact me if you have questions about your host)
  11. Recommendations by me (better plugins? Plugin/WordPress features you’re not using? I can spot these easily and give you suggestions to get more out of your existing website setup)

Here’s what you get with the ongoing Peace of Mind Program:

  1. I’ll keep your site backed up with automated, scheduled backups, performed by my favorite premium plugin, SolidBackups.
  2. Security monitoring via the WordFence security plugin, to block unauthorized logins, brute force attacks, and more.
  3. Copies of your backups will be stored in two locations: Your server (easily accessible from your WordPress dashboard) and my secure Amazon S3 server (in case anything ever happens to your web server or your web host).
  4. I’ll log into your site twice-monthly (or whenever a major update is released) and update everything (WordPress, your theme, and your plugins).
  5. I’ll set you up with an uptime-monitoring service (either Jetpack or UptimeRobot) so you and I will both be notified if your site goes down, and I can swing into action to get it working again.
  6. If something should happen to your site such that you require restoring from a backup (may it never happen!), I will restore your site from the last full SolidBackups backup.
  7. You’ll be able to use the premium Gravity Forms plugin for your site’s contact form, and I’ll set up spam protection and email logging so you’ll never miss another contact form message.

A couple of important caveats:

You should understand that while having backups in place is very important, that alone does not increase the security of your website — it just allows you to recover more quickly, without loss of data.

Staying updated does have significant security benefits, but it is only one part of the security puzzle. I can’t guarantee that you’ll be completely safe from hackers, vulnerabilities in your web hosting setup or site code, or random unforeseen events.

That said, I strongly believe that the most basic backup and update procedures (which is exactly what’s included in the Website Tune-Up and Peace of Mind Program) are the most important.

If you are fully backed up and updated, your website is less vulnerable to malicious intruders than the majority of sites out there. And online criminals tend to go for the easy targets.

Take your website out of the running by backing up and updating — I’m here to help you do it.
