Not all partner programs are built alike. This is true for their landing pages, and there is a strong correlation between top partner programs and great landing pages.
In this short video, Josh Garellek and I go through our favorite partner program landing pages and why we think you should do your best to imitate them.

Interested in learning how to build an agency-focused partner program?
Today we reviewed these pages to showcase what we believe works well to show agencies and other partners take the program seriously:
One of the aspects we really like about their partner page is how they speak so directly to their audience’s needs: “We’ve designed two unique partner programs to recognize, grow, and reward agencies and brand evangelists – while ultimately helping grow the businesses of our mutual clients.”
What is Typeform: Typeform is a Barcelona-based online software as a service company that specializes in online form building and online surveys.

What we like about their landing page:
Typeform’s partner page is gorgeous – which further-exemplifies value partners can bring to their business. They split traffic on the page to brand vs agency partners in a clear way. The agency partner page is clean, but provides all of the answers you’d need to at least apply. It has the header removed and lives on a subdomain which is another great factor in partnership conversion funnels because it allows the partner team more flexibility over changes. Social proof is also scattered throughout the page.
What is Unbounce: Unbounce is a leading landing page platform and one of Canada’s fastest-growing tech companies with offices in both Vancouver and Berlin. Unbounce has powered over 650,000,000 conversions to date and serves more than 15,000 customers worldwide.
From the top Unbounce’s partner landing page you’re greeted with the potential to earn more recurring revenue – 20% for every new customer you refer to Unbounce. You can get a high-level view about how partnering as a marketer, agency, or influencer works, as well as view some very helpful FAQ’s at the bottom of the page. For those on mobile devices, their landing page is well laid out, clear, and easy to follow.
What is Justworks: Justworks combines a simple platform and exceptional 24/7 customer service with the power of a PEO, so all teams have more time to focus on what matters. Get access to corporate-level benefits, seamless payroll, HR tools, and compliance support—all in one place.
Justworks’ landing page draws you in right away with the bold words “Let’s provide more value together.” Their partnership landing page includes testimonial quotes, a bit of insight who their deal partners are (for example, companies with 5-50 employees), as well as a full breakdown of their partner tiers with associated costs, perks, and resources available in each tier.
What is Databox: Databox is an app that serves as a personal data assistant, helping business users pay attention to what matters when it matters. From a morning briefing that makes sure you start the day knowing where you stand and how you’re progressing towards your goals, to smart alerts throughout the week that let you know when something needs your attention, Databox makes sure you’re never in the dark about the data that matters most to you.
Databox offers a seemingly endless stream of partners, all of which who went through specialized Databox training. You even can sort them by “Experts In” to see only the agencies that know how to use the tools you need like CallRail, HubSpot CRM, Pipedrive, Marketo, etc.
Most of all, they invite their agencies to create and share their templates which are then associated with the partner page and create THOUGHT LEADERSHIP for their agencies as well as leads (because traffic to these agency Databox templates is then downloaded by others).
Circles are our way of describing the relationships found in partnership ecosystems where a consultant and/or agency is partnered with both your tech and a product you sell well with (possibly also natively integrated to). This video will explain the strategy on finding those circles within your ecosystem.View Resource
Partner teams are often left dependent on sales/marketing for data and a lead process. This system is meant to be powered by the partner team to ensure they can scale without needing to rely on sales for data and leads.View Resource
