Many organisations rely on their relationships with external agencies for WordPress support to create, deliver and measure the impact of their website optimisation. The more effectively you and your agency can work together, the more likely it is that you will both succeed.
For many organisations, deciding to work with a WordPress support agency can be a big decision. You need to be certain that the agency can deliver, not only to a schedule, but that they understand your business goals and ambitions and understand how they can support you.
Writing on this subject, Marketing Week suggests that a successful client-agency relationship requires a flexible approach to maximise new opportunities that arise from the partnership.
So what is the best way to maximise the benefits of this relationship to ensure the agency support has achieved the required results and generates a positive return on investment?
#1 Set and agree on clear expectations from the start
This is one of the most common reasons why enterprise-agency relationships struggle to realise their full potential. Setting measurable goals that are clearly understood by both parties ensures you start the journey from the same place. This should also include tangible elements around deliverables, not just the deliverables themselves, but also communication preferences (how and how often) and how reporting should be structured.
#2 Be flexible in the approach and delivery
Digital technology and development is evolving at rapid pace. This means that you and your WordPress support agency need to be able to adapt to not only market changes throughout the relationship, but technology and development changes as well. A year ago having a Salesforce integration or automation marketing such as Pardot, Marketo, Act-on or Eloqua integrated in your website seemed optional, but this has changed rapidly in the last 12 monthstraditional support channels but sales channels as well. Enterprise organisations and their WordPress support agency need to be able to respond to opportunities like this or risk falling behind the competition.
#3 Share information and provide feedback
Sharing information relevant to your project’s goals goes a long way in helping a support agency understand your brand and your business goals. Each brands WordPress support requirements are different—you may need development, theme, plugin or coding support, while another organisation may need WordPress backup, security and hosting support. These carry different requirements and outcomes. Set and agree feedback opportunities, as this can be crucial to maximising your go to market speed for new project launches.
