It is a fallacy that as a freelancer or small WordPress agency we should expect our income to be unpredictable. The open source WordPress software allows us to bake into our services ongoing website care plans to keep clients engaged with us and pay us monthly to care for their website. Setting up a recurring revenue stream caring for WordPress websites offers us the financial security we only hope for in our work as designers and developers.
In this WordCamp session, I’ll go over what that looks like from A-Z. We’ll explore what you should offer in your plans, how you setup payment for these plans inside your WordPress website with plugins, and how to carry out those basic website maintenance services from performance scans, security scans, backups, plugin updates and support ticket system for client requests. I’ll also touch upon some challenges you might face with push back from clients and how to address those.
