Website Maintenance & Editing


Commissioning, maintaining, and promoting a website for your small business, organisation, or individual project can sound like a daunting task, but it’s easy when you know how!

Let me share over 20 years of experience in website design, development, and Search Engine Optimisation. Here I break down the process, and the requirements, and provide important information that will save you time, money, and headaches!

Website Maintenance & Editing

If you possess the skills to send and edit emails or handle common editing tasks such as working with Word documents, you are more than capable of maintaining and editing your website with just a bit of training.

Your website operates on a sophisticated Content Management System (CMS) known as WordPress, equipped with a built-in editor. Additionally, I integrate various plugins to enhance its functionality and the security of your website. It’s important to note that both WordPress and its associated plugins require routine updates to ensure security and optimal functionality. In the past, many web designers and agencies charged monthly fees for this service. However, with the introduction of auto-updates by WordPress, all plugins, themes, and the core WordPress software now seamlessly perform these updates automatically, eliminating the need for manual intervention.


Consistently refreshing and enhancing your website’s content keeps your audience engaged and maintains favourable search engine rankings. Routine content updates may encompass tasks such as modifying contact information, including team member photos, and much more. Once your website is expertly configured, I will guide you through the straightforward process of content management, ensuring you are fully equipped to manage your website efficiently. The process is as follows:

  1. Access your secure admin area with a username and password.
  2. Navigate to “Pages” on the menu, locate the specific page requiring modifications, and open using the “Edit” button.
  3. Utilise the intuitive visual editor to make desired changes to the text. Review and verify your edits, then proceed to publish the updated content.

I offer comprehensive training, empowering you with the knowledge and confidence to maintain and edit your website’s content effectively, thereby enhancing your online presence.
