Our most valued and dedicated partners
Umbraco Gold Partners are officially Umbraco-certified and take an active part and interest in the development of Umbraco. That's why we have packed this partner program with all the best - for the best 🏆
Our Major Friend Maker and head of partner team Anders Trans Sørensen is giving you a peek at some of the key benefits of being an Umbraco Gold Partner:
Already intrigued? Then drop an email directly to Anders and he'll be happy to answer any questions you might have - or if you're already convinced, help you get onboarded.
Not yet convinced? We're here to let you in both on what it takes to become a Gold Partner and how you can benefit from being our top-level partner.
How do you benefit from being a Gold Partner?
Let's start with a visual overview. As the table below shows, being a Gold Partner comes with a lot of fantastic perks. You can also see how, in terms of benefits, the partnership compares to Certified and Registered partner programs.
Indeed. The Gold Partnership is full of goodies. And below, we have gathered not only the ones we find most valuable but also the ones our current Gold Partners value the most. As a Gold Partner, you get access to them all:
Full Support from Umbraco HQ
We’ve got your back.
You'll be given a guaranteed lifeline directly into Umbraco HQ and our dedicated support team who are able to support you on both the Umbraco CMS and Umbraco Cloud. So if you’re ever having troubles with Umbraco, you're not left alone - contact us and we'll guide you back on track.
But this is not just a lifeline for you - it is also a guarantee for your clients. A guarantee that you've got direct access to the Umbraco HQ support team, should something come up in their project. A guarantee that will help them feel confident (and comfortable) in choosing you to handle their project.
Custom Umbraco Assistance
Being a Gold Partner means that we’ll “take you by the hand” to ensure your experience with Umbraco is as smooth as possible.
- We support you technically by offering architectural advising before you start a new important project. We also offer you code review on your projects in development. This way you’ll be able to have the very best foundation for a new project plus collaborate with some of the great minds behind the Umbraco CMS!
- We give you the latest Umbraco marketing and communications material to help assist you in selling and explaining Umbraco and its benefits to your clients.
- If you need sales support to help land a big project, we will gladly assist you. Let us know and we’ll be happy to join the frontline, such as participating in a meeting or pitch, doing demos or anything else that might help you win that client!
The Gold Partner Logo - a visual validation
The visual “Seal of Approval” comes in the form of the Gold Partner Logo. With this logo you can guarantee your clients that not only do you have the required skills to work efficiently with Umbraco, but that you are truly dedicated to the solution you use to build your projects on.
Use the logo everywhere - on your website, LinkedIn, on your business cards, Twitter etc. It's definitely something you've earned the right to shout about.
Free Umbraco training - ensuring your skills are up-to-date
As our Gold Partner, once a year, you get 1 free spot at an Umbraco training course (what we call Gold Partner Academy). Plus, once a year you're also able to pick one free Umbraco online training course of your choice.
All this is in order to keep your developers' skills up to date, or deepen the Umbraco knowledge among even more developers in your company.
And if you want to be a part of teaching the future group of Umbraco developers, you can join our Umbraco Education Programme (exclusive to Gold Partners).
Lead Generation - sending potential clients your way
In order to help lead potential clients your way, we shout about your company on our website - as a Gold Partner you get a special Gold Partner profile on our website with a direct “visit site” button to gather and send leads directly from us to you.
To help you stand out from your competitors even further, we offer to write case studies about your best Umbraco projects. These case studies will of course be showcased on your profile, so that potential clients will be able to see what you're capable of. Lastly, if a client comes to us seeking advice on a partner for a project, we always turn to our Gold Partners and find the best fit for that specific project.
Umbraco Cloud Partner Discounts
As both a friendly incentive and an appreciation for using Umbraco Cloud, we offer our Gold Partners the best advantages of Umbraco Cloud Partner Discounts.
As an Umbraco Gold Partner the discount is applied automatically when you create new Umbraco Cloud projects through your official Partner Account.
What does it take to become a Gold Partner?
Certification - an official validation from Umbraco HQ
This is a benefit for both you and your clients. And a requirement.
An Umbraco Gold Partner has the necessary skills for working with Umbraco, as it is a requirement that you have at least two Umbraco Certified Developers on your team. This is achieved by a total score of 400 Certification Points, which are earned by attending official Umbraco Training Courses.
Passing official Umbraco training to a certain level is the only way we, Umbraco HQ, are able to validate you as a skilled Umbraco solution partner. Thus, one we'd be happy to recommend to end-clients.
Yearly subscription fee
The yearly cost of the Umbraco Gold Partnership is €12.500. Looking through the list of all the features and benefits of this partner program, you'll see that the cost value of the included features way exceeds the yearly cost of the Gold Partnership (pssst... buying 2 Umbraco Professional support plans, which gives you support for just 2 sites, costs almost the same as the full Gold partnership!).
Some of our Gold Partners even earn a big part of their yearly subscription fee back by taking advantage of the Umbraco Cloud Partner Discounts.
