Plugin audit to maintain and update my WordPress website.

Is your website running slower than you’d like or just not feeling 100%?

Worried about potential risks and security vulnerabilities on your site?

A Plugin audit can identify and resolve many performance issues.

Why is a Plugin Audit important?

Firstly, let’s clarify what a plugin is and its role in your website’s functionality. A plugin in WordPress is like an app on your phone. A plugin adds specific features or functions to your website, enabling you to do more with your website without having to code from scratch.

For instance, if you want to add a contact form, a plugin can do this for you with just a few clicks. Similarly, if you want to improve your website’s SEO, there are plugins designed specifically for that purpose.

Now, ensuring that your plugins are up-to-date and functioning optimally is crucial for several reasons. Updated plugins offer enhanced security and performance, and they also keep your website compatible with the latest technologies and standards. In a constantly evolving digital world, a plugin audit acts as a preventive measure, guarding your website against potential vulnerabilities and ensuring it continues to serve your audience seamlessly, because outdated plugins can actually be a potential security risk to your website.

How do I know if a Plugin Audit will be of benefit to my website and what type of improvments can I expect?

  • Enhanced Website Security: By ensuring all plugins are up-to-date and free from vulnerabilities, a plugin audit helps protect your website from potential security threats.
  • Improved Website Performance: Outdated or conflicting plugins can slow down your website. A plugin audit identifies these issues, leading to faster loading times.
  • Prevention of Website Breakdowns: Outdated or incompatible plugins can lead to website crashes. A plugin audit can prevent such situations by identifying possible issues before they escalate.
  • Reduced Vulnerability to Hacking: Security loopholes in outdated plugins can be exploited by hackers. Regular audits close these gaps, providing an additional layer of protection.
  • Compliance with Industry Standards: Staying up to date with plugin versions ensures your website complies with industry best practices and standards.
  • Access to New Features and Functionalities: Updating plugins often introduces new features and functionalities, allowing you to expand and improve your website’s offerings.
  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Benefits: Search engines favour websites with updated and well-maintained plugins. This can positively impact your website’s rankings.
  • Peace of Mind for Website Owners: Knowing that your website is equipped with the latest and most secure plugins provides peace of mind, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.

What to expect.

  • Receipt and Onboarding Form: Upon completion of your purchase, the receipt will include a link to an onboarding form. The onboarding form is crucial in getting started. It will guide you to providing us with access to your website for the audit process.
  • Confirmation of Payment: Once your payment is received and the onboarding form is submitted, we will be able to begin your audit. This is best done on a day/time when you aren’t in the backend of your site (updating stock, making sales, etc) so if you have a busy period, let me know.
  • Thorough Audit Process: We will conduct a comprehensive audit of your website’s plugins. This step aims to optimise performance and ensure the highest level of security. After this initial audit, we may implement basic changes immediately, or, we will be in touch to provide you with a detailed report of our findings and a plan to implement the updates needed. (Eg. If you don’t have a backup plugin already installed, I won’t make any changes till I speak with you and setup a backup)
  • Other Recommendations: We often find other adjustments or improvements that can help boost your website which we will include in our final report. Moving forward we can assist you in implementing them if you choose to engage us for further work.
  • Enhanced Website Performance: With the plugin audit complete, your website will be optimised for maximum performance, efficiency, and security.

FAQ

Payment needs to be made in full before any work can begin.

Unfortunately, once the work has begun, refunds cannot be issued. Be sure about your decision before starting the process. I often start work within 24 hours of purchase. (Refunds for larger tasks are usually pro-rata and can be partially refunded if work has commenced, but given the discounted price of this offer, there is no refunds once work has commenced).

After payment, you’ll receive an email with your receipt. Additionally, you’ll be provided with a link to an onboarding form. Please complete this form with all the necessary details so I can begin your work.

Work is typically completed within 1-5 business days, but is always dependent on other workloads.

This is an audit of your Plugins only. This is NOT a theme update nor is this a WordPress update offer. These needs can be completed if you choose to engage us for those specific tasks.

A Plugin audit is the inspection and expert analysis of what your website is already setup with. If you have a backup plugin, like Updraft, already setup, activated, and taking regular backups and storing them offsite, and you have access to the offsite folder, then I can immediately make small updates/edits to your plugins while I am auditing the site. If there is no backup option, I will be in touch with you first, as this must be setup to be able to safely make any updates/changes to your website. Often, your host has an external backup and depending on the host, this can be replied upon, but only if you have access and login details to your host. If you don’t have a backup plugin setup, and you don’t use a reputable host that can be relied upon for backups, like SiteGround or FlyWheel, you will need to let me setup a backup plugin onto your website before I can update and maintain any issues I find with your plugins. The audit will still take place, but any recommendations will not be implemented – there is no refund if the audit goes ahead and is not able to be completed as my time has been used still. You will still receive your audit and report, but no changes can be made without a backup.
