GoDaddy, one of the world’s largest cloud platforms dedicated to small, independent ventures, has announced an expanded GoDaddy Pro Program – a set of tools and benefits designed for web designers and developers.
The GoDaddy Pro Program now includes Pro ManageWP, which allows web hosting clients to control all of their WordPress websites in one place, regardless of host. A result of GoDaddy’s recent acquisition of ManageWP, a high-end WordPress site management tool, this new offering would allow web professionals to execute bulk updates for plugins and themes, perform security scans, monitor performance and uptime, and generate branded client reporting from a single dashboard.
GoDaddy has also expanded its incentives with additional product discounts and rewards for Pro members.
The GoDaddy Pro Program includes a profile on GoDaddy Pro Connect, a directory of web designers and developers from the GoDaddy Pro Program for small businesses looking for website help. Web designers and developers can also now receive new client referrals and offer numerous services to customers, ultimately helping drive more business.
“The ManageWP team brings industry-leading WordPress tools to the broad audience GoDaddy serves,” said Vladimir Prelovac, founder of ManageWP and now senior director of product management at GoDaddy. “We’ve been working well as a combined team to deliver tools from ManageWP, and integrate deeply with GoDaddy Pro.”
To sum up, the free GoDaddy Pro Program includes:
- Pro ManageWP – WordPress site management tools that enable one click bulk updates for multiple WordPress sites.
- GoDaddy Pro Clients – A single place to manage client accounts without having to juggle multiple client passwords. From one dashboard pros can see all client product purchases, shop for their clients or send them a shopping list for needed purchases.
- GoDaddy Pro Rewards – Provides product discounts and exclusive promotions. Pros also earn in-store credits on all purchases.
• GoDaddy Pro Connect – A new online directory bringing experienced web designers and developers together with small businesses who need help creating or updating their website. Using this directory, small businesses would be enabled to more easily find local web professionals they trust. Web developers and designers can create a profile and earn GoDaddy client referrals.
