Can’t I do it on my own?
I used to change my own oil. It doesn’t take an ASE certified mechanic to remove a plug and swap out a filter, but it’s messy, and if your like me, it typically happened a few hundred miles after it should have been done.
WordPress is increasingly becoming a stable and user friendly platform for non-developers to manage. If you have the time and discipline to keep your site up-to-date then 9 times out of 10 you should be fine. With our maintenance packages we make sure that it happens weekly, and that it’s successful 10 time out of 10. We have to tools, expertise and systems to make sure it happens right every time.
