According to WPCurve themselves they do not offer a white label program and that much is true. My goal is not to mislead you with this post but to present creative solutions for meeting the needs of those who are looking to white label WPCurve’s awesome WordPress development services.
If you haven’t read WPCurve’s blog post 11 lessons learned from a white label failure, go ahead and find out for yourself the reasons why WPCurve has made the choice to not white label their services for marketers, developers, designers, and agencies who would love nothing more to have access to the skilled WordPress developers on the WPCurve team at such a great rate for their client’s multiple websites.
Which leads me to my big questions for you: When you say you want to ‘Whitelabel WPCurve services, even though they don’t allow it, are you simply looking to get insanely cheap WordPress development help or are you just seeking access to their hand selected team of very high quality WordPress developers?
Why White Label WPCurve?
I Need Cheap Quality WordPress Development Help for Small Tasks
If this is you then here are 2-ways how you should Whitelabel WPCurve’s service:
- Be transparent with your client and tell them to sign up for WPCurve on their own and tell them you will help them manage it by delegating small jobs there for them. This way WPCurve gets all the credit for the work and the client is paying for their own account so they see the value. This creates what I see as a win-win-win for the “white labeler”, the client, and WPCurve. Yes I know this isn’t true ‘white labeling’ but it is the right way to go about things according to what I took from the White Label Failure blog post.
- Tell your client you are an affiliate for WPCurve and have nothing but great things to say about them and have them sign up. I know, I know this would be considered being an affiliate of WPCurve not white labeling but it still solves the problem of needing affordable help from talented WordPress developers for the small stuff.
I Need a Trustworthy, Accountable and Talented WordPress Developer
I think a big majority of those who want to white label WPCurve are people who simply need to know where to find an accountable WordPress developer to help them from time to time as needed. They are looking to swoop in on the recruiting work WPCurve has done with stocking their team with WordPress allstars and get access to them for their needs large and small for multiple websites. These people would never admit they are trying to poach WPCurve’s developers but I know it’s true because I’ve seen it with my own eyes…
I’m one of the hand-selected expert WordPress developers at codeable.io have you heard of us? At codeable 989 of every 1000 completed projects are rated with 5 out of 5 stars and it is the #1 outsourcing service for WordPress. If you want to know more about how codeable works you can click that link and read my other post on it.
The reason I tell you this is because in the past 2 months I’ve have had 4 people who told me they discovered I was a codeable developer and asked me how they work with me outside of the codeable.io platform which charges fees on top of my estimates but for good reasons that benefit the client and developer. There is a policy at codeable that you are not allowed to work with codeable clients outside of codeable and I have to tell this to these people who are literally trying to capitalize on the hard work codeable has done hand-selecting, qualifying and monitoring their expert developers they allow to work on their platform.
Good news: codeable.io is for EVERYONE.
Designers, marketers, project managers, agencies, bloggers, and multi-site owners you name it are all welcome on codeable.io to have access to the expert WordPress developers through their platform. So if you are simply looking for a reliable WordPress developer and do not know where to find one for jobs small or large codeable is a must try for you.
There is no official whitelabel codeable.io program but you are allowed to post tasks/jobs on there on behalf of all your client’s sites and project manage them yourself so the client thinks it is your developers who are completing their work. As a codeable developer myself I’ve done many jobs for agencies and marketers who’s clients never know about me and I’m totally fine with that because I still get a positive review from the agency or marketer.
What about WPCurve then?
WPCurve is such an awesome service I recommend to everyone I talk to about it. I’ve been following co-founder/entrepreneur of WPCurve Dan Norris for a little bit now and think he is a very smart mate with a really amazing growing business with an awesomely disruptive business model at the low price point they offer. So much respect for what they’re doing and how it fills a huge need making the WordPress world a much better place.
Here is a quote from one of my clients on codeable:
“I’m really happy to hear your thoughts on Dan and WPCurve! I know they hate white labeling but I’m giving them a hard time on letting me post small projects on behalf of my friends and clients (that’s all I really help with websites – I am mostly in full time marketing). But I think it’s working because they’ve let me list a few with them thus far. I have yet to find a comparable solution.”
I totally agree with WPCurve’s founders on their position on white labeling and encourage them to stick with their simple focus.
Be Honest with Yourself and Your Clients
But let’s be honest if you are really going to outsource this WordPress development work on behalf of your clients then you need to make sure you’re charging you clients enough to hire the right help. WPCurve is for ‘small tasks that take less than 30 minutes’ they say and if you are expecting to be able to serve all your clients needs you’re gonna need to look elsewhere at some point anyway.
