Becoming an Umbraco Gold Partner is a big commitment for many agencies. While it's a costly and time consuming investment, we believe that it offers many great benefits.
Becoming a Gold Partner in 2013 for us was a demonstration of our commitment to the Umbraco product. Potential customers could see we had invested in training and gone all-in on the product.
Being a Gold Partner has been an important part of our sales process, differentiating ourselves from other Umbraco development agencies that aren't partners, as we know more about the platform's roadmap, are able to offer better support, and have strong relationships with the HQ team.
