Do you cringe when you think about how long it’s been since you visited your own website? Cringe no longer—we’ve got you covered.
You’ve invested a lot of time and money into your website and it’s important that your visitors have a good experience. However, over time, your website can change. As your website’s components & browsers update—like a car—parts stop working or just don’t present as well as it did on launch day. These issues can compromise your brand or reputation, or even prevent your visitors from reaching out.
Learn why your website needs to be monitored.
Your website is a collection of many 3rd-party moving pieces that need to be maintained and monitored to ensure those pieces stay in good working order. You’ve invested a lot of time and money into your website to craft the perfect experience for your visitors but over time, things change.
Like a car—where parts wear out and start to vibrate, tires blow out—your website will experience similar issues and this can affect how your site looks and works. Browsers update causing elements to shift, forms can fail or the emails start hitting your spam folder, slow or partial page loads can frustrate users only. Websites get hacked, so backups are vital to preserving your investment, and your time. If you’ve got better things to do than babysitting your website, let us keep an eye on your site for you.
Our monitoring service includes a couple of things others folks don’t offer…
We do a lot of the things other companies do: extra backups, security & malware scanning, 24/7 to the minute monitoring to ensure your site is live. What makes our service different, is that we physically visit your website each month. Your website can experience issues that only visiting the website will catch: broken Google maps, broken fonts and failed forms, to name a few. Trust HPX Media to watch over your website so you don’t have to.
