    Cheap Hosting - You get what you pay for:
    1. "unlimited" isn't unlimited. Storage costs money and no business can offer unlimited hosting for a few bucks a month.
    2. Shared hosting - limited resources shared between multiple sites with "unlimited usages"
    3. Responsible for your own security
    4. Generally responsible for your own backups
    5. Pay money to fix a hacked site

    Higher-end Hosting:
    1. More server resources
    2. Site is siloed off from other sites
    3. Better support
    4. Better security
    5. Better backup solutions
    6. Staging support

    Managed WordPress Hosting:
    1. A team available to do all the server management stuff you could want.

    Where our Managed WordPress Hosting differs:
    1. We keep plugins up to date (within reason)
    2. We proactive monitor your site and the resources afforded to it.
    3. Multiple backup locations for disaster recovery.
    4. eCommerce optimized by default (PHP workers, WooCommerce enhanced)

    Bonus:
    1. We also provide managed website updating services to keep content up to date.

    Branding Step 3: A Tagline That Defines Your Brand

    Branding Step 3: A Tagline That Defines Your Brand

    Not all businesses have taglines. As a matter of fact, quite a few of my existing clients don't actually use a tagline. In my opinion, however, it's important to have a statement about your business even if it isn't a publically facing tagline. Having your tagline, whether public or private, will inform the way you move forward with the story of your business in marketing and even in sales.
