Categories of Website Management

Generally speaking, there are three distinct angles of website management:

  1. Technical side – software, plugin, and codes upgrade, system update and management, and technical SEO (site speed, Meta tags, robot. Txt, etc).
  2. Creative or content development and posting – this involves writing blog posts, news, editing content on the site, and ensuring that all the write-up is up to date. And this content can further be shared on the company’s social media timelines.
  3. Website promotion or marketing – this involves developing online adverts, attracting traffics to the site, and ensuring that a target audience knows not only that the website exists but what the company does in Nigeria.
