    After several years of thinking, I have decided to start my Website Maintenance business for WordPress websites.

    I plan to focus on micro-small businesses and online stores.

    I know there are many similar options out there but they seem to be focused on larger clients. My aim is to assist small business – eg at home businesses, businesses that have popped up due to Covid issues (eg: laid off – turned the hobby into a business).

    Any thoughts!

    Apart from maintenance if you have an existing website, I am also going to offer Website creation, online store setup etc as well as general help with the running of your site.

    My feeling from asking people is a lot of people have an idea for a small business/micro business but then get put off by the online presences, setup, maintaining it when they really are an expert at XYZ instead!

    If you think it’s a great idea, let me know or not, well let me know. Also if you think there is a gap for a reasonable priced service like this.

    Hi And Welcome to Flying Solo Ernie. It is great to have you!

    Thank you for joining our community and posting.

    There are plenty of plenty of businesses – when I bought my business 12 years ago in Commercial Cleaning on the Gold Coast, there were already hundreds of similar firms and it is still how I make my money today.

    Just be a little unique and laser focus on what you can do well.

    Use a maximum 3 words to define yourself. I used, “Expert and Affordable” and it helped me to create “my brand” built around exactly those two things.


    P.S. One of our members, Dan Norris, created the very first large service, WP Curve, later selling it to Go Daddy for an undisclosed sum.
