Can you answer this simple question? : How would you like to NEVER have to worry about your photography website?
Have someone keeping an eye on it 24/7 and make sure it is up and running?
Someone to trigger daily backups and be confident that this backup will actually work if you ever need it.
Someone to take care of site security so that you never need to worry about your site being hacked – always knowing that if it was – we have those backups.
How would you like someone to take care of those wordpress plugin updates for you?
Someone to turn to when the worst happens and your WordPress site goes off-line at the busiest and most important time of the year.
Someone to turn to when you want to update your website – adding content to your site, or to add a new form to your site. Or even to fix a little design issue.
Or you basically just need good quality hosting for your photography website at a price you can afford, but without all the traditional hassles of hosting?
You can’t do everything on your own! Nobody can.
As busy photographers, we should be busy doing two core tasks – taking pictures and working ON the business.
How many times though do we get bogged down with things that don’t add money to our bottom line and get in the way of doing real paid work. We end working IN the business rather than ON it, so we never get an opportunity to properly develop and grow the business in the way we would like to.
We can help!
