Number 67: Use ManageWP
For those of you that are using ManageWP, excellent. Pat yourself on the head. You're a thought leader.
If you're not using ManageWP, definitely check it out, managewp.com. ManageWP allows you to manage all of your WordPress websites, whether they're yours or your clients, from one beautiful dashboard. It allows you to update all of your WordPress installations, core WordPress installations, and it allows you to update all of your themes and all of your plug-ins with literally the click of a mouse.
It manages backups. It manages security. It integrates with the security service to help keep your clients' websites secure. It allows you to set up uptime monitoring and send alerts to yourself or your clients if the website goes down. It allows you to do some basic keyword SEO optimization. And, it gives you one place where you can login and manage all of your clients' websites in one hit.
What I would suggest is get your clients on some kind of monthly maintenance plan to keep their website up to date, secure, backed up, and all their software up to date. Then, use ManageWP to streamline that process and make it profitable. Definitely check it out if you haven't, managewp.com.
Hey, this isn't an affiliate link. We don't get paid to recommend ManageWP by the way. We just use it and recommend it because it's awesome.
In the next video you'll learn about the need for speed. Until then, go elevate.
