A couple weeks ago we received a package from Google. It was a bunch branded tumblers, a pretty cool promo item to say the least. Then more boxes arrived from Google. These were filled with candy popcorn, a plaque and really heavy hunk of glass. The search engine sent us all of these cool gifts to recognize our Premier Google Partner status – something we think is pretty cool!

Google Premier Partner Gifts
As a digital marketing agency, we’ve been a Google Partner for over ten years. In fact, we were one of the first companies in the Midwest to be Google AdWords and Google Analytics Certified at the agency level. I know, it sounds like I’m bragging, but I’m not. We use Google technology with nearly all of our clients. And earlier this year, we were recognized as one of the Top Google Technology Providers – okay, now I’m bragging…

My point, being a Google Partner is not new to us, they just have a new "Premier" status that recognizes agencies who have Partner Profiles, multiple Google Certified employees, demonstrated growth in campaign performance, and meet higher ad spend requirements. Our team just happens to fit their Premier criteria.

Yes, one of the requirements is spending more advertising dollars with their platform, and our [clients] ad spend continues to increase. A lot of this is due to the digital transformation that is taking place. 2016 is the first year in history where more money will be spent on digital advertising than television advertising. Knowing more companies are ditching TV in favor of digital definitely helps make Premier Partner is attainable for many Google Partners.

Digital advertising has also advanced far beyond banner and text ads. That’s right, the Google platform is sophisticated allowing Brands to micro-target their audience on YouTube, G-mail, and more. My point is simple, companies are spending more on digital advertising and Google is providing rewards – THANK YOU!
