An Insider's view of Wpromote

What's something quirky about your company?

Wpromote has a small obsession with the movie ‘The Princess Bride.’ From conference rooms to our team of 4 Houses, Wpromote leans heavily into the movie theme and one can find The Dread Pirate Roberts, Fezzik, Buttercup and Montoya throughout the LA office.

Anne

Senior Marketing Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Ultimately, everyone strives to achieve success for clients through their respective channel, so collaborating with other teams involves using knowledge and learnings from my field to support and/or guide the actions of other teams. Whether that means providing keyword insights or CPA goals, cross-department support is critical at Wpromote.

Maarten

Paid Search Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started off as an account manager where my skill set had to constantly evolve to now being responsible for an entire business unit’s financial success, my growth professionally at Wpromote has been tremendous. I went from being dead-set on getting an MBA to now having the experience where having one wouldn't be a game changer.

Dexter

General Manager - SMB

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Our most successful accessibility initiative is TinyPulse. TinyPulse allows for a dialogue between the employee and leadership while keeping the employee’s identity anonymous. This encourages honest feedback in a safe environment for the employee and gives leadership access to valuable insights from a source much closer to the client.

Michael
