Just like in health, it's much easier to maintain a functioning website rather than letting it deteriorate and then only taking action when things are broken. This is why it's important to do preemptive maintenance and security updates.
In this video, we are going to talk about why you should regularly update your website and the three areas that you need to focus on.
The Importance Of Regularly Updating Your Website
Regularly updating your website is just as important as regularly maintaining health and your immunity... so you're ready when viruses come knocking on your door.
Specifically for websites, there's a number of bots out there that automatically probe for vulnerabilities and then spring into action when they find a website with unpatched security issues.
That's why it's so important to have a dedicated team member (or website support team) to keep your website up-to-date.
Here's three website areas you need to focus on:
#1 - Annual Review of Your Website Content
Make sure that your website links are all working and your blog posts are still on point and relevant to your niche. Another thing to regularly update is your "About" information. If there are changes in your team, contact information, it should be up-to-date as well.
#2 - Security Updates, Maintenance & Website Backup
When website hosting sites like WordPress comes out with updates or new plugins, your website should also be up-to-date the same way your phone needs the latest Android or iOS updates.
When it comes to website maintenance, I believe it's not something that you as a practitioner should be doing. It's something that needs to be done on a recurring basis and it's much cheaper if you just outsource it to a team who does it.
#3 - Regular Content Marketing
If you are already creating content on social media, then I highly suggest that you also add that content to your website. Your website should not only educate people, but also drive action like content consumption or signing up for a discovery call.
