Does it take a lot of time and effort to maintain a site? The answer is yes … and no … and of course is relative to your experience and the amount of time you have available for such chores. When things are going smoothly, it may be a matter of a few moments per day. But when something goes wrong, you need time, patience, and knowledge to be able to quickly get the site back in working order.
- Do you have the time and experience to bring a site back from the abyss if an update goes bad?
- How much stress will a broken website cause you?
- How much money and sales will you lose during the downtime?
Someone with experience in handling the ups and downs of site maintenance will likely have the problem solved before you’ve even had the time to panic about it.
You do what you do best – run your business. Leave the site maintenance headaches to someone who is best at that particular chore. Everyone wins peace of mind at that point.
