4. All the technical stuff
Relax, we got this for you. Jottful takes care of all the technical stuff, so you don't have to worry about it. This includes:
- Mobile responsiveness. Your website automatically adjusts for any screen size: laptops, tablets, or mobile phones. It does this seamlessly so you don't have to worry about it.
- Built-in SEO readiness. Your website is “SEO-ready” — meaning it's technically structured in a way that makes it easy for search engines to understand it. This is the first step in having a website that is optimized for search engines. Learn more about how to improve your website's SEO >
- Reliable website hosting (at no additional charge). Without hosting, no one would be able to see your website. If you'd chosen a designer or agency, you’d typically need to pay separately for hosting each month. With Jottful, it’s just included.
- Security (at no additional charge). We secure and renew a TLS (formerly SSL) security certificate for your website. TLS encrypts data sent over the internet. This keeps your information secure from eavesdroppers and hackers and helps ensure that sensitive information, such as passwords and credit card numbers, are safe. What's more, having a secure website helps it show up more prominently in search-engine results.
- Software updates and backups (at no additional charge). If you'd hired a designer or agency, you'd be paying them hourly to fix technical problems as they arise. Designers and agencies very often build their websites using software called WordPress. With this software, frequent updates of the underlying code and all plugins will be required (oh, and you may need to pay a fee just to use the plugins, too). Updates can be tricky because a plugin may not be compatible with a new version of the software — and then the plugin will fail, which can cause critical pieces of your website to stop working (such as your lead-generation form). But not updating your website exposes it to hackers. With Jottful, all this maintenance (and peace of mind!) is just included.
- Outage monitoring. We perform a check every few minutes to ensure your website is still online. As a result, if there's ever an outage, we're usually the first to know and we immediately get to work to resolve it.
- Anti-spam monitoring.Spammers work hard to attack websites all the time. Though it's impossible to eliminate spam, we've put in a number of systems to reduce the amount of spam you receive from the contact forms on your website. Learn more about our anti-spam efforts here >
5. Monthly website reporting
Each month, we'll send you an email with your website stats. We make your stats easy to read by providing only the most important information, in simple style. Short, sweet, helpful... and included with your subscription.
Your monthly email may tell you:
- The number of visitors who came to your website
- Your top pages that were visited
- The top traffic sources where visitors came from
- Which devices people are using to view your website
- Whether your website experienced any downtime
Exactly what stats you receive may vary depending on what Jottful subscription plan you're on. Learn more about our monthly reporting here >
If you want more detailed analytics (e.g., if you're running marketing campaigns or working with a marketer), we suggest you set up Google Analytics. We can add a Google Analytics tag to your website.
6. Customer-only training sessions
We’re committed to your success. So we run optional training sessions to help you improve your business’s marketing. Popular topics include: SEO, your Google listing, and website benchmarks.
7. A gift to give & a treat to keep
Do you know a small busines owner who could benefit from a do-it-together website from Jottful? If you refer them to Jottful and they become a customer:
- We'll give them one month of Jottful free — it's a gift from you!
- We'll send you a $200 gift card
And, yes, you can do this over and over and over and over...
