WPP and Optimizely partner to bring informed digital experiences to brands and consumers

Announcement demonstrates the two organizations’ commitment to supporting clients in delivering optimized digital experiences to each and every customer

NEW YORK, August 9, 2023 - WPP today announced the launch of a global strategic partnership with Optimizely, the leading digital experience platform (DXP) provider. As WPP’s first dedicated digital experimentation partnership and Optimizely’s first global strategic partnership, the announcement demonstrates the two organizations’ commitment to supporting clients in delivering optimized digital experiences to each and every customer. 

With consumer expectations at an all-time high, Optimizely will help WPP’s enterprise clients unlock innovative, digital potential. As a platinum partner, WPP clients will have full access to Optimizely’s full suite of DXP tools including content marketing, content management, commerce and experimentation. By implementing these tools, companies can use data to continuously develop digital experiences that maximize conversion and engagement, leading to better efficiencies and return on development investment.

Notably, the partnership also offers clients seamless integration with Optimizely Web Experimentation and Google Analytics 4 (GA4) in light of Google’s upcoming September phase out of Google Optimize, its web analytics and testing tool. WPP and Optimizely are teaming up to support the seamless transition to a new experimentation platform to help brands deliver relevant content and features.

The announcement comes after WPP has been working with Optimizely for 17 years across brands like ACCO Brands, Aegon, Oister and more.

Stephan Pretorius, Chief Technology Officer at WPP, said: “Powerful creativity and effective media strategy can be wasted if brands do not also prioritize conversion. Optimizely’s platform provides data that allows brands to maximize the chance of driving customers through the ideal journey across channels, and we’re excited to develop a joint offering to take to our shared clients.”

Alex Atzberger, CEO of Optimizely, said: “The world’s leading companies must have world-leading digital experiences, which can only be achieved through a test and learn approach. Together, WPP and Optimizely will ensure customers get the most out of their experimentation programs so they can turn insights into increased conversions. We are thrilled to kick off this partnership.”
