The Importance Of Website Maintenance

Websites are probably the most successful tool a company has when online marketing. This makes looking after your website an essential part of your business. The best way to achieve smooth results, and effective, up to date marketing campaigns, is through regular website maintenance. Here are some points to consider:
Security – The last thing any business needs is a hacked website. Hackers can exploit flaws in the software you are using, or that many websites are using, to infect a single website or many. Strong passwords that are changed frequently are essential, as well as using security plug-ins. You should also keep everything up to date and remove any old applications.
Display the quality of your business – The quality of your website reflects the quality of your business. Not being able to keep the website and its software up to date can make your business appear disorganised. It is essential to ensure that your website is running at its absolute best, problem free, and giving your customers the best experience possible at all times.
Back up your website – Daily or weekly backups are a must – imagine if the worst happened and you were hacked, or you accidentally deleted some important files? Experts recommend a daily back up to minimise damage, as a problem can potentially strike at any time. In just a click, your website can be restored to its former glory and run as smoothly as before. Backups can protect you from several problems, including hackers, employee errors, viruses, and breakdowns during updates.

I've been working with Green Tornado for just over 5 years. In that time they have designed countless flyers, posters, product labelling, newsletters and other promotional stuff that my business required. Most importantly they understand my brands' 'vision' - possibly better than I do myself! All the work produced is fantastic and of very good quality. Over the years I've had some pretty tight deadlines but they've never been missed. Would definitely recommend!
