If not, then you must be doing something right! One of those “right” things could very well be that you’ve been keeping WordPress and all of your plugins up-to-date.
Did you know that out-of-date plugins and a failure to keep WordPress updated are some of the quickest ways in for someone wanting to create havoc in your system? In fact, I blogged about this very real problem last year.
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve taken on a new client wanting us to maintain and update their website, only to find that WordPress is several versions behind, and their plugins are all out-of-date. Or, they contact us because their WordPress site has been hacked and they’re in a panic and we find the same issue with out-of-date versions of WordPress and their plugins.
Hackers are always trying to find new ways to get in and create havoc on your website or blog, and the WordPress and plugin developers are always right on their tails plugging security holes and making sure their programs and plugins are able to withstand the attempts. By keeping everything fresh and up-to-date, you can help prevent some really nasty attacks that could cause your website and blog to go down, or even disappear. The cost of keeping everything up-to-date is far less than it is to have to do damage control or rebuild your entire site.[clickToTweet tweet=”Prevent WordPress vulnerabilities by keeping WordPress and all of your plugins up-to-date!” quote=”Prevent WordPress vulnerabilities by keeping WordPress and all of your plugins up-to-date!”]
Most professional speakers and business coaches are busy working with clients, speaking, coaching, and doing what only they can do. They don’t have the time or the energy to continually worry about keeping all of these little “back end” things taken care of, so it makes sense for them to outsource them. Hiring a marketing support specialist to provide maintenance and keep everything up-to-date for you on a regular basis is just the smart thing to do. Why take the risk?
