So how do businesses qualify to be Google partners? The finer details below….

 

Business details

Google ask agencies to make a ‘Partner’s profile’ in order for them to access all of the required information on the business before they can qualify them. This first step means the business must be committed and worthy entrants before the selection process begins.

To become a Google Partner, an agency has to become Google AdWord Certified which requires expertise in the Google back-end for paid marketing initiatives – essential in delivering a quality service to clients – this includes Search, Display, Shopping, Video and Mobile advertising.
