The Problem; WordPress Updates and Agencies
WordPress is the most used content management system today. It easy to get running and has a huge plugin ecosystem.
It's the default choice for a lot of web designers, developers, and marketers.
Like any technology leader, it's success makes it a target for mal-ware and spammers.
Most WordPress users know the number 1 way to keep a site safe it to keep the code updated. WordPress itself, plugins, and themes.
WorePress makes this easy and for one site it's just a matter of remembering to update often.
This is where the problem starts.
Designers, developers, and marketers build a lot of sites. It's not enough to ask clients to keep the site updated.
They paid for a solution;
- A working website.
- A marketing campaign driving traffic.
- Search engine optimization.
They didn't pay for another task. Especially one that is outside there expertise!
At least, that's the conclusion I came to for the clients I build sites for.
The same conclusion a lot of designers and developers have come to given how many offer a WordPress maintenance solution.
Marketers are also starting to offer solutions or recommendations for solutions to their clients.
Nothing sucks like working on a campaign for months and finding out the site's been blacklisted for mal-ware!
Or having a client contact you asking why the site it's working.
All these agencies want their clients site running smoothly.
I started building CommandWP to solve this problem for myself. Now I'm building it for other agencies!
