  • The Problem; WordPress Updates and Agencies

    Dusty Candland | November 29, 2019 | post, commandwp

    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!
