Need help updating your website? Check out our customised training packages.

One of the most common problems we see at GO Creative is that many business owners don’t keep their websites updated, because they either don’t have the knowledge or the time. The result is that once we hand over their new website, they seem to flounder around for a while, adding new content intermittently, forgetting about SEO and generally not making the most out of their website.

To fix these problems, we have a range of training packages, that are designed specifically for businesses who need guidance and advice on how to keep their websites updated and ranking well on the search engine results pages (serps).

What training packages do we offer?

We can customise any of our training packages to suit your individual needs, but in general, most business owners want help with understanding how to use WordPress, with written manuals for their staff and with keeping their website optimised for the search engines.

  • WordPress training: Essentially we can design a training package that shows your employees how to add content to your website, how to schedule content, add videos and images, and create additional categories. Our training can be undertaken in person, online, using the phone or via remote desktop software.
  • Manuals: We can also give you hard copies of your WordPress training or any other specific training that you have requested from us. These manuals help to back up our in-person training, and serve as a resource and training aid for new employees.
  • SEO: Continuing to optimise your website for the search engines is vital to your rankings in the serps, so you don’t want to let this lapse. We can design SEO training packages (in person and manuals) customised for your business, so your employees can easily keep your website optimised at all times.

Who can benefit from our training packages?

Our training packages are designed for businesses who are struggling to keep their websites updated and need some extra help in that department. We have a range of businesses who benefit from our training packages, from sole traders who need to do everything themselves, to owners with less than 5 employees to larger companies with 100+ staff.

How we secure and backup our client’s websites

The number one concern of our clients is keeping their websites safely secure and backed up. That’s why we have a long list of actions that we take to ensure that every website we develop or host for our clients, is rock solid and protected against hackers.

Of course, there is always one hacker who can get around any security protocol and that’s why we provide a first rate backup service. When your site is backed up properly, we can have your site up and running again in no time.

The problem is that so many business owners don’t backup their websites and have no recourse when their site is hacked. Many will lose their entire site and have to start over again from scratch, losing money and clients in the process.

So how do we secure your website?

  1. Daily and weekly server backups: With regular backups at the server level your website can be up and running again very quickly.
  2. Security plugins installed in websites: These stop hackers at the front gate of your website and prevent hackers gaining forced entry into your website.
  3. Server antivirus, antispam and other security features: Stopping these problems at the server level gives your site added protection from both spammers and viruses and prevents damage to the integrity of your website.
  4. Unique and secure passwords on hosting accounts: We create passwords that are very difficult to hack even with the malicious software that is so prevalent today.
  5. Real-time monitoring that notify us when errors occur: If anything potentially damaging does happen on your site, we are aware the instant it occurs and can immediately prevent or minimise potential problems.
  6. Regular software and security updates: We provide a regular maintenance service and on-the-spot fixes of newly discovered potential security breaches.
  7. Automatic website software upgrades: Not all websites require this service, as many do not use software applications on their website.
  8. Installation of SSL security certificates: These are required by online stores and any site that processes sensitive information, to ensure that customer’s details are kept secure.
  9. Office 365 password updates: If you use this software, we make sure that email passwords are periodically changed and updated for additional security.
  10. Training for clients: We provide user training and advice on security protocols and best practices.
  11. Capital IT Solutions: We work with our IT partner, Capital IT Solutions to install on-site hardware and software security solutions to keep your website safe and secure.

Clairvaux Football Club has been working with GO Creative for several years now. We met with them because we had no website and no idea how to get things started, but they assisted us from the development stage through to implementation. They continue to offer support in the day to day running of the site. No request is too difficult, no question left unanswered. They help us come up with and improve our ideas, and put them into action. There’s no hassle and we save both time and money. Our club and the users of our website have been thoroughly impressed and I would recommend
