WordPress support and maintenance is quite a bit of my ongoing business, whether it's "de-hacking" a compromised site or simply optimizing and protecting it. To be honest, WordPress maintenance is not the highest priority on some organizations' long list of to dos, and yet it's a popular target for hackers. So what's a website owner to do?

Finally, I've launched Chicago Web Support. While I've performed website support and maintenance for clients for a while, this new site gives you more options to have your site managed and supported with minimal fuss, and a streamlined checkout process you can manage on your own.

There are three monthly levels: Starter, Growth and Pro.

Starter web maintenance support:

The Starter package is perfect for new businesses and new bloggers who want peace of mind, but not a high monthly price. You'll get daily site backups, a weekly security check, free fixing of your compromised (ie, hacked) site, weekly updates of WordPress, its plugins and themes, monthly spam cleanup, and a monthly Google Analytics report emailed to you.

Growth web maintenance support:

The Growth package gives you all of the above, plus uptime monitoring, a quarterly site review with my recommendations for improvements, a monthly SEO ranking report alerting you to keywords Google has ranked you on, and 45 minutes of website changes (unused time does not roll over to the next month). Website changes can include content additions/changes, and minimal design work or development. Or, we can discuss strategy for that time. Up to you!

Pro web maintenance support:

Finally, the Pro package makes your site review monthly, and gives you two hours of web maintenance time to use as you see fit (unused time does not roll over to the next month).


You can purchase a month at a time, or in discounted six- and 12-month blocks (that's 10% and 20% off, respectively). Try it out for a month, or buy a larger block.
