GoDaddy Inc. (GDDY), the world’s largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures, today announced partnerships with WP Elevation, the world’s largest business community for WordPress consultants, and OSTraining.com, the world’s #1 online and live training company for open source CMS’s. As a result, web developers and designers have access to free, high-quality educational content.
These partnerships reinforce GoDaddy’s support for the WordPress community and commitment to help further the growth of WordPress users. The educational content provides resources and help for all skill levels — from beginner web designers working on side projects, to established developers looking to more efficiently run and grow their businesses.
With WP Elevation, web designers receive business training on how to improve client communication, workflow and business practices through monthly webinars, videos and insightful content — all for free. Additionally, in conjunction with OSTraining, GoDaddy sponsored a new WordPress Training video series for beginner web designers consisting of 40 episodes. The series covers a range of topics, including how to navigate the WordPress dashboard and creating a staging site for development and testing.
“One of the biggest challenges for web pros servicing multiple clients is the time and money spent on administrative tasks,” said Raghu Murthi, SVP of Hosting at GoDaddy. “These educational resources help web pros work smarter and provide outstanding service and support to their clients.”
“We’re very proud to be partnering with GoDaddy to help web pros better serve their clients,” said Troy Dean, co-founder at WP Elevation. “I’ve been very impressed with the improvements GoDaddy continue to make to the Pro Program and the whole team at WP Elevation is excited to be bringing some of our best training and education to the GoDaddy community.”
The offerings directly complement the GoDaddy Pro Program. GoDaddy Pro Program members have immediate access to the content and additional tools to help manage client accounts. The program includes access to 24/7 expert technical support, WordPress site management tools to assist with ongoing maintenance, including site monitoring and client reports, access to expert level support, rewards programs and more.
“It’s so great that GoDaddy has sourced high quality content and is making it available for free,” said James Hubbard, Ph.D., owner of JJHubbardBooks.com. “As a 20 year web pro, I restructured my online presence at GoDaddy based on what I learned from WP Elevation. I look forward to more valuable learning opportunities through GoDaddy.”
