WP Engine Agency Partner Announcement
Great news! Wirebox have become agency partners with WordPress Engine. This means that we have access to tools and resources to enable us to compete on the digital market, grow and develop as a company, and enable us to work more effectively and innovatively with our clients and partners.
WP Engine, a managed webhost for WordPress which powers almost a fifth of the internet, is one of many hosts specialising purely in WordPress, understandably given the platform’s popularity and reach. But the webhost is set apart from the competition by its high support engineer to customer ratio, it’s guaranteed security and its fast and scalable hosting, made possible by the EverCache technology it uses.
We use WordPress all the time so this affiliate program made sense for us. The WP Engine Agency Partner Program brings digital innovation to the table, dealing with site performance and security. It’s a tiered service, giving different levels of access and service depending on your company’s requirements. With WP Engine you gain access to the partnership portal, and through that access to content, applications and support. The menu on your dashboard includes these options:
Training and pre-sales
This is a package of content that you need to get ready and make the most of your partnership. There is a member badge to put on your website to show the work you’re doing with WP Engine. There is also a ‘getting started’ page, which takes you through what the platform can do.The training and pre-sales section is a Learning Management System, a training course to set you up to succeed.
Content and resources
This gives you access to articles and case studies, to give you ideas and inspiration. Webinars such as “Optimizing Websites for Great UX” and Ebooks like “The Future of Digital Experiences: How Gen X is Changing Everything”. Informative resources to help you create better content and get a better grasp of online branding and using social media for the most effective marketing campaigns.
Updates on all the tools at your disposal to make your site more awesome, including one or two click features such as backups, copy sites, traffic reports and user portal utilities. There are more advanced tools as well, which can help you to get an SSL certificate to improve your site’s security, troubleshooting and migration. This comes with a range of webinars and guides to show you the ropes.
The playbooks on the dashboard are public guides to using WPE services to perform specific functions. There’s one for mobile optimisation, one for e-commerce, one for performance intelligence and optimisation. These are the tools you need to improve your site, business and game plan.
The campaign marketplace allows you to store and track your campaigns, so that you can analyse what works and keep apace with multiple campaigns. There is also the opportunity to contribute to various online magazines, and a partner badge to add to your site, to broadcast that you are a WPE partner.
Add prospective clients to this page to keep track of and contact as and when. It’s like an online address book, giving you a useful place to store vital information for leads and customer loyalty.
The pipeline allows you to track your partners, deals and the value of those deals, as well as the stages which those deals are at. This allows you to better keep track of your finances, making for a more efficient business, so that you can plan better for the future, as well as know whether what you’re doing to market deals and follow up on leads is working.
Wirebox is proud to be a WPE agency partner because it shows we mean business when we make a WP website for a client or use the features of WPE to improve their site, manage their hosting or undertake a social marketing campaign. To have your website get the best hosting, functionality and design, you know you can trust a WPE partner.
