How it Works
You might have identified performance issues related to your theme, plugins or your hosting provider – our audit identifies these issues. Often clients want an audit because they have an existing site that was built by another developer but the site now has problems. The report provides clarity on where your problems lie and how to fix them.
We also perform this audit if you want us to support and maintain your website so that there are no surprises for either of us when we look after your site.
We start with an initial phone consultation to talk through what problems you’ve been having. We’ll ask you to create an Administrator account for us to login and use during the audit process.
The outcome of our audit is an an easy-to-understand document that gives clear recommendations to improve your website’s performance and security. This is hand-written specific to your website, prepared by one of our senior developers. If your website is working 100% as expected then we’ll tell you that too.
Once your report is complete, we’ll provide ideas on how best to tackle any issues. Typically this involves a fixed period of development work to correct any plugin or theme issues which will measurably improve your site’s performance.
