WordPress maintenance course

Caring for your WP site to keep it running
safely, smoothly, and efficiently.

I want this!

You already have a gorgeous new WP website.
Or you plan on building one.

That's really great!

But are you thinking like a business owner? Your website is critical to your online business. So are you protecting it against security hacks, or updates gone wrong, or incompatibilities between plugins, or even the entire site going down?

You can't afford to allow WordPress technical stuff to affect your “online presence”. You can fix and prevent almost all issues by following the lessons in this course.

I'll teach you the one-time changes needed to set a good foundation for your WordPress site, as well as the ongoing tasks you need to do regularly to double-check your site's health.

Here's what you'll learn:

Why WordPress maintenance is important

WordPress can really become bloated over time, and it's not necessarily your fault. So it's important to stay on top of things and make sure it's running well.

How to set the right foundation from the start

You can prevent security problems, or even complete downtime, if you use time-tested quality themes & plugins. Building your site well from the start will also make it easier to manage in the future. And if you already have a WP site, you can clean it up now.

How to do maintenance on a regular basis

We'll be going, step-by-step, through what you need to do regularly to check up on things, to tune up your site, and to keep it that way.

Improving your site once things are running smoothly

Once the technical aspects are taken care of, we'll explore how you can investigate more advanced stuff, to optimize your site even more.

How to fix bigger problems

If you already have serious problems with the site, I'll explore some emergency measures that you can take.

Frequently asked questions

At the end, I'm going to share my answers to some relevant questions I received from other WP site owners.

WordPress is the leading content management system (CMS) on the web, powering over a quarter of the Internet.

But combining it with poor hosting services, improper management, security attacks, and negligence, you get a slew of possible problems.

Don't just sit and hope that nothing bad happens.

The solution is prevention: properly managing your WordPress site to avoid security problems and protect your online assets.

This course will take you step by step through all the maintenance tasks you need to work on, both when first setting up your site & on a regular basis. You'll also get PDF checklists with all these two sets of tasks!

By following all the recommendations in this course, you'll save money and stressful time by learning to properly manage your WordPress site yourself, in order to prevent security and functionality problems down the line.

This course is for responsible WordPress site owners who want to clean-up a problematic or outdated site, or who just want to build a well-oiled machine right from the start.

"Cyber security and automation were topics I found enlightening. As a person with limited experience and knowledge of "blogging" and Internet marketing, the lessons on the practical use and maintenance of websites were eyeopening." - Kevin Sharp
"I found it easy to understand and helpful. You reinforced that there is a lot of work and attention these days that must be put into properly maintaining a website. I will certainly use the checklists, step by step, to improve my visibility." - Matt Baugh
"Thanks so much for all the great info! A good refresher and much more for me. It's good to get the latest on the security and learn about useful apps for my website. I need to get back to regular maintenance!" - Patricia Davidson
"It was a timely recap on a lot of WordPress issues for me, along with some good advice tips on plugins, backups, etc. The drilled down plugin recommendations were good, as well as the endorsements you give them." - Patrick Endres

ForegroundWeb is a cozy web design studio and educational website run by me, Alex Vita, on a mission to improve photography websites out there.

I help photographers grow their photography business with a stellar web presence, in 2 ways:

I either build websites for them (with over ten years of experience, having worked on 200+ websites for photographers from 25 countries) or I teach photographers how to improve things themselves through a ton of educational content (articles, newsletter, resources), website reviews, SEO reviews, and consulting & strategy calls.
