What I Don’t Do…

A good babysitter sets good boundaries. I love what I do, and I know my limits. In the decades I’ve spent building and managing websites I’ve helped website owners succeed and exceed their goals.

I’ve also grown to understand that WordPress projects are like children. Every website vision is unique, and comes with it’s own set of challenges. Like children, every website I’ve worked with has had their own lessons to offer. But each needs a basic level of care and feeding. In site ownership, as with parenting, different levels of care and skill are common but the reality is most website owners don’t really want to deal with the technical side of website ownership — the nitty-gritty administrative stuff that keeps the site running.

As a result I’ve distilled the most important, repetitive, technical tasks involved with website management into a monitored, streamlined, informed process. My goal is to empower website owners with more time and bandwidth to focus on reaching their website goals by keeping their websites up to date, backed up and secure. It’s a little like being able to get all your work done and play with your kids, too.

Following is a list of what is not included in your WP Babysitter maintenance and backup subscription:

  1. design services
  2. application integration
  3. plugin troubleshooting
  4. content writing and editing
  5. search engine optimization
  6. image optimization
  7. social media updates
  8. virtual assistant services
  9. contact form monitoring
  10. purchase monitoring
  11. malware removal
  12. software and services renewal monitoring
  13. email delivery issue troubleshooting
  14. e-commerce fulfillment

And while I don’t specialize in everything on this list, I do offer some of these services on a per project basis. I likely have vendor references for you for some of the things I don’t do. If you have questions about my other offerings or ideas about other ways we can work together, let me know.

Thanks for the clarity, I get it now πŸ™‚ I should know such things but somehow this stuff flies over my head, thus Emily with her tech cape arrives, thank you!

Emily @ WP Babysitter is very competent and extremely conscientious of her work as a β€œtechy”. Give her a very deserved shot and see for yourselves. I can personally testify to her work ethics and responsibility, and would recommend her highly.

As a creative running their own business, the drive to want to do everything myself is quite high, and it led inevitably to a situation where my online presence was managed in a haphazard and mediocre manner. Trying to juggle routine maintenance with creating the work I needed to fill those spaces with content was a never ending and frustrating cycle of not being able to give my best effort to any aspect of my work. Enter Emily. She not only took on my website maintenance tasks, she most importantly provided the necessary peace of mind to enable me to place my full attention on my artistic work and content creation. There is never any opportunity for serious issues to arise because Emily is absolutely on top of the inner workings of every web presence she curates, with an attention to detail and upgrade potentials that keep things running smoothly and growing with you. I cannot recommend her and her services highly enough. Every creative with a web presence would do well to engage her for the long haul.

It is such a relief to know that my website is in good hands. Emily at WP Babysitter is very professional and easy to deal with. I am not techie at all and she explains everything to me in a very thorough way. Emily is very knowledgeable when it comes to websites and web maintenance. I am content knowing that my website is backed up on a regular basis if there should ever be a problem.

Emily at WP Babysitter totally takes care of the constant code updates and malware attacks that impact my business’ site. I can’t imagine how much time I’d lose, frustration I’d gain and clients I’d p*ssed off if I tried to manage the technology running my website. Thank you, WPB!!!
