Ryan Sullivan started WP Site Care three years ago and the WordPress maintenance, support and development company quickly grew to a six-person team.
WP Site Care became his full-time job in June 2013, less than a year ago. The company, based in Salt Lake City, offers three packages as well as al a carte services designed to free site owners from maintenance, WordPress core and plugin updates, security breaches and, with more aggressive options, ongoing SEO, so they can focus on their businesses.
- Starter: Provides 24/7 security monitoring; daily cloud backups; WordPress core, theme, and plugin updates; and WordPress video training
- Specialized: Includes the Starter Plan plus site performance optimization; premium theme and framework updates; premium plugin updates; SEO optimization; and a 1-hour support ticket.
- Business: Includes everything in both the Starter and Specialized plans plus site migrations, real-time uptime monitoring, SEO analysis from Moz, phone support and 2 hours of design and development.
Al a carte services include migrations, plugin setup and configuration, security audits, site speed optimization, disaster recovery and SSL certification installation and setup.
Many business clients use the design/development time for custom landing pages, graphics, page templates and post layouts, Ryan says. Clients at all levels come to WP Site Care after developers/designers wrap up their new sites because their shops aren’t set up for ongoing security maintenance and support.
WP Site Care has sponsored other WordCamps, and if Ryan isn’t here in person on May 3, he’ll be here in spirit. He likes the “laid-back vibe” at WordCamps and how the community-organized events break down barriers. “At a lot of conferences you’ll have industry leaders and they’ll be partitioned off from everyone else who is there to learn,” Ryan says. “At WordCamp you can literally be standing and talking to someone who is giving the keynote and won’t even know it.”
“The whole format is designed to help everyone involved and supposed to be an environment of learning,” he says.
