Most of us take a reactive approach to a lot of things in life. Our car breaks, we take it to the mechanic. We get sick, we go to the doctor. We react to the situation. Most of us know for a fact that if we simply maintain our car and take care of our body by watching what we eat and exercise, our car and body will last a lot longer without having to see a medical or car specialist. Now, that’s the proactive approach to the same situation. Preventive care maintenance.
The same goes with your business or personal website(s). It needs proper and regular maintenance. Whether you have an HTML, WordPress, Drupal or Joomla based website, the list of website responsibilities we provided here are applicable. We will continue to update and add to this list as technology changes. What we described below is a list on how to maintain, manage, monitor and market your business website. The day-to-day responsibility part will be whichever one or more items listed needs the most attention on that day. If none require any attention, then you go through the list and check on as many as you can at any given random time. You can try to arrange this list of responsibilities to conform to a schedule you feel will work best. You can try. The bottom line, however, is that all listed responsibilities will need your attention at one point or another. You should do each listed responsibility at least once per month or have a professional webmaster do it for you. If you do continue with the list on a regular basis, you will end up with a healthy and prosperous website. It’s inevitable. We guarantee it.
