We’re introducing two new programs for agencies and solution providers looking for a scalable hosting platform for their customers
We have also updated our Affiliate Program, which we’ve been running from the very start.
One thing that we have learned is that our most successful partners are the ones that fully understand how our platform addresses the scaling challenges of specific market segments.
The fit is cultural too: we’re out there disrupting the market and want to work with people that believe that innovation paves the way to the best opportunities.
With this in mind, we’ve updated our Affiliate Program so that the first step is an application process. This ensures that we partner with affiliates that are also advocates of solving performance and scalability issues for their customers with innovation.
Working with agencies
Convesio was originally conceived as cloud infrastructure for WordPress agencies and over the years we have been working closely with these agencies in providing them with the support and platform features invaluable for their growth.
Our relationship with our partners has always been productive as we listen to their feedback and include their suggestions in our product’s roadmap. Communication via Slack has helped get work done faster, more efficiently and feedback has been consistent too: Convesio is perfect for customers that need performance at scale and the level of support has been exceptional. But don’t take my word for it, take Nate Fineberg’s – an agency owner who has been hosting with Convesio for over 2 years.
First and foremost the overall performance and speed Convesio hosting provides is amazing. I moved my 50+ agency websites from WP Engine to Convesio and immediately saw performance increases in TTFB, On Load and Fully load times.
Their support is exceptionally good, helping me with issues that they have no obligation to. They monitor all of my sites for downtime and message me if a plugin breaks a site. They offer optimization services and have multiple partnerships allowing me to use enterprise services for a fraction of the price.
They offer auto backups and free SSL as well, very nice features. Best decision I made was to move all of my sites to Convesio.
About the new Agency Program: we haven’t packaged it as a one-size-fits-all partnership. Instead, we’re interested in working with each agency individually to help them choose between the referral and reseller model and in picking the right level of support that fits their customers.
We’re excited to talk to different kinds of agencies and not just WordPress dev shops. Some of our most successful partners are marketing agencies or MSPs that just want the best for their clients and peace of mind for themselves, looking to outsource the full scope of WordPress hosting and operations.
A partnership with Convesio doesn’t necessarily have to kick off with a referred sale. If the fit is right we’re happy to start a conversation – we can create a Slack channel just to bounce ideas around.
Partnering with other solution providers
As WordPress becomes the platform of choice for more sophisticated digital experiences more solutions are being built to cater to them.
These are eCommerce functions, Learning Management Systems, plugins to run membership sites, and advanced functions for publishers, and they have one thing in common: they need powerful and scalable hosting.
Solution partnerships work both ways. Our own customers are interested in the types of solutions our partners offer, whether at the scale of Cloudflare Enterprise or more niche (but just as effective) as offered by Object Cache Pro.
We are also interested in partnering with cloud providers to extend our footprint and offer a more diverse range of infrastructure options.
Supporting our partners, present and future
I take this opportunity to introduce myself as a Partnership Manager here at Convesio. I’ve been consulting with the team here for the past 6 months and joined officially back in January.
Now that we have launched the partner programs I can focus my attention on a couple of other related projects. Stay tuned.
Feel free to reach out if you’re interested in discussing how we can work together.
