Even though WordPress is a really easy platform to work on, many people I meet are frustrated about their web sites. They are losing sleep over it and they aren’t getting the most out of their sites.
3 reasons you are losing sleep over your web site and how to fix them.
1. I don’t know how to use it.
Most people are scared of breaking their web sites, or just don’t realise how simple maintenance can be, and so think they need to go back to their web developer for simple content changes.
2. My site is out of date.
Its so easy to let a site get out of date. The primary reason this happens is that business owners don’t have the right skills to maintain their sites, and don’t have anyone else maintaining it for them.
3. I haven’t got time to work on it.
This one I understand, we are all busy, and if you haven’t got time to work on your site then you need to think about why it is taking you so long to do what you need to do.
I’m going to tell you how to fix these 3 problems, and its really simple because they all have the same solution…
Invest In Training
All of these 3 problems I have mention become compounded because you are floundering around with your web site, winging it. You are tinkering here and there and generally ending up in a right pickle.
Web site maintenance is a little bit like DIY, you want to have a go yourself for a few reasons:
- You don’t know a someone you can trust to do the job
- You are feeling a bit tight and don’t want to fork out any cash
- You fancy having a go
There is nothing wrong with any of these reasons for having a go at your own DIY, it’s just that if you don’t know what you are doing or don’t have the right tools for the job you can end up spending hours and hours getting nowhere.
So, back to my point, expert training is a no brainer, a few hours with someone who knows their craft can be invaluable, you will benefit from all their years of experience and get it condensed into a few hours.
Then you have to go away and practise because unless you use the knowledge you have gained you are wasting your time. In 3 hours I can teach you how to maintain your own WordPress site and if you have a day then I can show you how to build one!
Practise the skills I teach you every week and you will soon been maintaining your site with confidence.
