Did you have a backup of your website? If the answer is Yes, then great, you are one of the few that have backed up your web data or had a trusted web partner do it for you. If your answer is No… you are the majority. You probably figured nothing has ever gone wrong in the past so why would it now? You might even think the people you pay to host your site have it stored somewhere. THINK AGAIN.

Problems After a Move
Your hosting company moved your website to a new server or upgraded the server. Once it was moved, your site no longer had the functionality it once did, if it was able to run at all. The technology of the web server is now top notch, but the technology of your website may be out of date and incompatible with the latest and greatest.

The Dreaded Virus
Many web hosting servers are a favourite target for hackers. Why? These servers host thousands of websites which, in turn, see many visitors on them each day. What better way for a hacker to get more bang for their destructive buck than going after web hosting servers?! It’s safe to say that many viruses will not affect a website’s ability to function, but we have seen viruses that can bring a website to its knees.  As we learned above, it’s not the responsibility of the hosting company you use to keep a backup of your site.

So, how do you get your site back up after one of these disasters? Simple Answer: Be prepared to spend a lot of money, especially if you need it done ASAP.

However, this can all be avoided if you:

  • Make sure your domain is registered in your name and the contact details are up-to-date
  • Make sure you have a current copy of your website files (daily/weekly/monthly/annual) to restore from
  • Make sure your web platform technology and plug-ins (CMS) are kept up to date
  • Scan your site for viruses regularly

With a Honey Do Maintenance package from Get Jacked, not only can the prepaid hours be used for everyday maintenance of you website, they can also be used to ensure you have your domain registration in your control, there is a backup being kept of your website on a schedule that makes sense to your business, your web platform and plug-ins are kept to the most recent versions, and your site is regularly scanned for viruses.

By having a plan and a trusted partner beside you, you can rest at ease knowing everything is in place to prevent your site from going down, and if something does go wrong, you can quickly get your website back up without spending tons of money.

GET BACKED UP NOW!

It’s a social world & believe it or not, your potential clients are too.  Your Facebook, Twitter,  LinkedIn, etc, need to be brand consistent.  We aren’t just talking about the look.

In addition to your advertising, your networking, your websites, etc, having a consistent presence in people’s news feeds on social media will get your brand seen.  Generate appealing content and provide value to those users and you will have those social media users following you, sharing your content, and engaging with you. Once a follower engages with your company on social media, conversion to a client is the next logical step.

As a business owner or a brand manager, you are more than likely paying to promote your company or your products and services in print, signage, or traditional media. If given the opportunity to bring awareness to your brand could be had for little to no cost, why would you not capitalize? Is it the lack of time you have to post on social media? Do you struggle with content and what to say? Are you not convinced that social media users can be converted to your clients?
