Supporting data-driven decisions

Our data-driven approach helps our ongoing maintenance clients succeed. We set up all Standard Plan and Premium Plan clients with Google Analytics and Google Search Console. This helps us understand how people are finding your website and how people are interacting with your website.

We can help small businesses answer questions like:

-How are people getting to my website?
-Are they on mobile or desktop?
-What locations are visiting my website?
-What are people doing on my website?
-How are people entering and exiting my website?
-Did my latest marketing campaign work?

We’ll work with you to determine the strategic questions we can help answer, and guide you through the data for actionable insights.

Proactively managing security and performance updates

When you’re growing or maintaining a successful business, the last thing you want is a hacked or broken website. It’s important to make sure your website’s core, theme, and plugin files are always up to date with the latest versions.

Website security and performance updates can get pretty technical, and that’s why these updates are included in all our ongoing support packages. We’ll take care of all the behind-the-scenes security tasks to help your website stay online, functional, and secure.
