5 Things You Didn't Know About WordPress Care Packages (That Will Save You $1,000's)

WordPress care packages are great assets for large WordPress websites. Instead of spending an allocated sum of money each month to hire website developers, you can easily pay a smaller figure or a pay-as-you-go basis to WordPress agencies to maintain your website.

1. The Size of Your Website

Are you managing a large WordPress site with multiple inventories or posts? If the answer is "yes", you need a WordPress care package if you do not have the time for monthly maintenance.

Typically, small WordPress sites are easy to maintain but large ones (such as eCommerce on WordPress) is a tedious job and best to give it to the professionals.

2. Save More Time By Hiring Others

Maintaining a WordPress site is not an easy task. Seriously.

To give you an idea, here's what you can expect when it comes to maintaining a WordPress site, either on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

TasksComplexityTime Required
Updating WordPress themes and pluginsEasy< 15 minutes
Server monitoringModerate~ 30 minutes
Clean and optimize databaseModerate~ 15 minutes
Checking malwareModerate~ 15 minutes
Resolving incompatibilityTough> 30 minutes
Performing WordPress migrationTough> 3 hours

The above is just a simple list of tasks that you need to do to maintain a WordPress site. And if you are running a large site or eCommerce site, there are even more things you need to perform which will ultimately take up a lot of time.

Doing it yourself (DIY) isn't saving you more money if you don't have the needed expertise. Your time should be allocated to do things that generate you revenue or traffic instead.

3. Hiring Full Time vs Freelance / Pay As You Go

Pay As You Go Model

Hiring a full time WordPress developer is an excellent choice when you are making over 6 figures each month with your WordPress site. But if you are not achieving such, going the 'pay-as-you-go' route is a better option.

For example, our monthly WordPress care package pricing comes with a generous 5 hours of work per month for only $50. This means that you save at least $300 per month on WordPress maintenance works.

4. Website Downtime Is Bad For Reputation And Sales

When was the last time your WordPress site was not accessible to the public? Let us guess.

You reached out to the web hosting support and was told that they couldn't do much because it was 'your mistake'? Yes, we hear this one too many times.

Cheap WordPress hosting solutions often provide subpar or zero support when you really need it. After all, what you pay is exactly what you will get.

Every downtime your website experiences, the higher chances you are in losing potential sales and revenue. Of course, it is just fine if you are making $5 or $10 per hour. Imagine losing $100 or $500 per hour.

That's a whole different story.

5. Better Be Safe Than Sorry

Subscribing to a WordPress care package could mean spending $50 a month and keeping your WordPress site safe (that's if you are subscribing to our monthly plan). WordPress is a popular CMS but it is also not bulletproof especially with vulnerabilities and security threats.

For example, WordPress care packages would easily mean that vulnerabilities on Divi or critical vulnerabilities on Elementor will be fixed immediately instead of leaving them in the open and risking your WordPress security.

Summary: Are WordPress Care Packages Right For Me?

We hope that this blog post will give you an insight on what WordPress care packages are and how they can impact you as a WordPress site owner.

As contrary to many, WordPress care packages are not extremely expensive and they certainly come handy during the times of need. Learn more about WordPress care packages here.
