Genuine & Honest Website Audits

While other digital agencies use reviews and audits as a sales tactic –
we do not.

Our audits are intended to provide a non-biased review and analysis, and suggest items for consideration.? Whether good or bad, our audits are genuine and honest.? We take the time to dig-in, understand the current state, evaluate the data and consider the website as our own.

We will securely request credentials for the website, server, and other components that are needed for our review and mini-audit. Prior to any work being performed, we will perform a backup of the server environment when able, make a backup of the website through the WordPress dashboard and retain those backups.? We will provide those backups to you upon request. Our Full Website Review and Technical Audit includes the setup of a staging environment with a cloned version of the website for our testing and analysis.

We offer two different types of WordPress & WooCommerce Website Audits
