A quick, organized and thought-out approach to a crisis can significantly lessen the length and impact of the situation. The more prepared you are, the more likely it is for the crisis to be short-lived. Here are five steps you can take today to start planning for a crisis.
It’s one thing to develop a new web site or redesign an old one, but keeping a website up-to-date is something entirely different. Websites often get cluttered with trash, bugs, missed updates, because they are poorly maintained. The content gets out-of-date, links are broken, SEO is invalid, etc. In the short term, you may need a website tune-up, a spring cleaning of sorts, but for the long-term you’ll need some outside help or a contract with a web firm to maintain your site on a consistent basis. Anything you care about needs maintenance, therefore your website is just like anything else.
Your Website Can Make Or Break Your Business
In today’s world, a potential customer will most likely visit your website before contacting your business for any product or service, and they’ll probably do it on a mobile device. It’s important that your site looks good to everyday users. Is it easy to navigate? Does it provide the information that your customer is looking for? These are essential elements for your website. If your website is un-responsive and outdated, you’ve lost credibility and probably sales. If you have a significant investment in your professionally developed web site, then get a professional to maintain it for you.Your company gets the benefit of an experienced professional within your budget.
Davidson Belluso offers services with a monthly retainer or a per-hour rate – whichever suits your budget. When you have a professional working on your website, you can expect updates to be handled quickly and professionally. Also included with our Web Services are back-up’s of your website. In the event that your server crashes, Davidson Belluso can provide a backup copy of your website.
When it comes to your website “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” is dangerous. It is not a matter of “IF” but “WHEN”. Web servers get compromised. It could be a hardware failure, a hacker, a virus, or your hosting company made a change, whatever happened, leaves you with the problem caused by another. You will need regular backups because you never know when the disaster will happen.
Davidson Belluso includes a back-up service with our services by default since we always do a back-up before we do anything to your website. We keep a working copy of your website on an off-line protected private web server and in most cases, we can restore your website in a few minutes or a few hours depending on the disaster. Don’t wait for the inevitable to happen to find out your system is vulnerable.
