Keeping up with multiple websites and clients to ensure their sites are up-to-date, backed up, and malware-free.
For starters, ManageWP saves me tremendous time. I’m using scheduled backups, which means I never have to worry about that step. Once a month I log in and update all of my sites, do a one-click optimization, and download a customer report. All of that takes less than half an hour.
The uptime monitor is also great because it lets me know if one of my sites goes offline. On e-commerce sites, downtime means no sales. With downtime alerts, I can address any issues immediately to get my sites back online as quickly as possible.
Happy customers, happy Carrie. 🙂 Seriously, the customer reports that I send along with maintenance invoices are a really nice touch. Keeping websites helpful is sort of a nebulous-sound thing to non-technical people and that report is a great tangible deliverable.
With 10 sites and an average of 15 minutes per site per month (digging up logins, doing a backup, updating software, documenting that for an invoice). Even reducing that to 10 minutes per site per month is a 40% time savings. If you add in the time it’d take me to generate the client reports on top of that (say 30 minutes total per site per month), then ManageWP is increasing my efficiency by 100%.
Anyone who manages a WordPress site. Whether it’s one or 100, the variety of maintenance features is well worth it.
