Around this time last year we were accepted onto the Magento Partner programme. Star Digital are silver solution partners and we wanted to let you know what that means for your business and website. To be a Magento solution partner we have to demonstrate a number of things. We have to be able to design websites that are attractive, and that will work in the way users expect them to. We then have to show we can develop Magento sites, which in simple terms means we have to show we can build them with any necessary, or bespoke, functionality. We also have to consider the marketing of the website – by making sure a website is suitable for SEO optimisation for instance. Not only do we have to show all of the above, we have to prove it by showing we have successfully implemented and launched Magento websites. We also have to prove to Magento, owned by eBay, that we have developers who have passed the stringent certification exams, and have worked in the Enterprise level product. When it comes to planning, building and creating an ecommerce website, whether it’s the first or fiftieth site build you’ve been involved with, you want to be sure you’re working with a partner that has the necessary experience, creativity and knowledge needed to make the site as successful as possible. We hope, having produced a large number of Magento ecommerce sites, as well as being a Magento solutions partner with Magento certified developers, we are a safe bet when it comes to selecting a partner to work with. If a new ecommerce site is on your horizon and you’re looking for a qualified partner, drop us a line.
