by | Jun 19, 2023

Ah, the thrilling adventure of adminning a website! You know what I’m talking about, right? The endless hours spent updating plugins, scanning for malware, and battling with broken links. And don’t even get me started on the content! Creating fresh, engaging content is a full-time job in itself (it’s literally all I do for a living…)

Maintaining a website is no walk in the park. In fact, it’s more like a hike up Mount Everest without a Sherpa (or oxygen).

Sounds like your idea of a good time, right? Well, as Fusion Marketing’s resident writer, I’m here to tell you that there’s an easier way. So, grab your popcorn, and let’s explore the fascinating world of website maintenance and why you might want to think about letting a marketing agency handle it!

The Never-Ending To-Do List: A Deeper Dive

Adminning a website is like having a needy pet that requires constant attention and care. Except this pet also has a million different buttons and settings that can either make it purr or turn it into a snarling beast threatening to destroy your livelihood!

First, let’s delve a little deeper into all those exciting tasks involved in keeping your website running smoothly. Here are just a few things you’ll need to tackle regularly:

Updating Content

Remember that “About Us” page you wrote back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth? Yeah, that needs updating. Also, your blog posts, product descriptions, and even your homepage might need freshening up. Keeping content updated is like trying to nail Jell-O to a wall, but it’s necessary for SEO and usability.

Dealing with Security

Hackers and malware are the boogeymen of the internet, lurking in the shadows, waiting to pounce on vulnerable websites. To keep these digital demons at bay, you’ll need to stay on top of security updates, firewalls, and backups – or risk becoming the star of your very own horror movie.

Updating Plugins and Themes

If your website were a Transformer, plugins and themes would be its robotic limbs. They’re essential, but they also need regular updates to keep them functioning properly. Neglect this task, and your website might transform into a Decepticon (and not the cool kind).

Managing SEO

If you want people to find your website, you’ll need to play nice with Google. SEO, or “search engine optimization,” is pretty straightforward; it means optimizing your site for search engines, which involves keyword research, meta tags, and praying to the Google gods. It’s the kind of task that makes you question your sanity and wonder if you should’ve just become a goat farmer instead.

Monitoring Site Performance

Websites are like cars – they need regular tune-ups to run smoothly. This means checking for broken links, slow-loading pages, and making sure your site looks good on all devices (because let’s face it, no one wants to browse a website that looks like Picasso designed it).


To keep your website loading quickly and efficiently, you’ll need to optimize your images, compress your files, and clean up your code on a regular basis. This is the kind of technical stuff that requires a real computer whiz, so you might want to outsource this one if it’s beyond your skillset.

Content Creation

With a job title like “Content Curator,” you’d assume I’d at least tell you the content creation was easy, right? Wrong. Crafting compelling, SEO-friendly content that resonates with your target audience is hard work. It involves research, creativity, and a lot of caffeine. (and I mean a LOT… as I sit here typing at 9:38 pm, finishing the last sips of my second cup of coffee this hour. I don’t control creativity; it comes and goes as it pleases!)


If you don’t have multiple backups of your website (and I mean multiple) stored in different locations, it’s like having an air plant and ADHD. It might seem like a good idea at the time, but eventually, something is going to go wrong. (Trust me, I have experience…)

And this is just the tip of the admin iceberg! Are you exhausted yet? Well, buckle up, because we haven’t even touched on analytics, social media management, email marketing, and making sure your site is mobile-friendly.

Who has time for all that? Not you, dear business owner, because you’re busy running your empire.

The Time-Suck Quagmire: A Closer Look

Let’s break it down. Adminning a website is time-consuming. Like, “I could’ve binge-watched an entire season of my favorite show” time-consuming. And while it might be tempting to put off these tasks, doing so can lead to even bigger headaches down the line.

Broken links, outdated plugins, and slow load times can frustrate your visitors and send them running for the hills (or, you know, your competitor’s website). Plus, search engines like Google aren’t too fond of poorly maintained websites, meaning your hard-earned search ranking could take a nosedive.
