Hi Guys,


Would anyone have any recommendations of which second certification to take.  I was just wondering if Video and Mobile Advertising are beneficial, as these are my top two and which I would like to go further into for my career.

Assuming you took both the search and the display portions of Adwords test for certification then there are 3 other tests available:


Video is by far the hardest of the bunch as expressed by many of us that have taken and passed the test.

The test are to insure you understand how the products work, but by no means guarantees your success in either the Selling of the product, nor successful outcomes by utilizing the products.

I do suggest you take all the exam certifications so that you have a good understanding of the products you will be using.

So to answer you question specifically, are Video and Mobile beneficial.
YES. These venues are an important segment in advertising and are only increasing in customer using these platforms.. Therefore understanding them, working with them and advertising on them, would be beneficial to any career goals.

Hi Thomas,

As Eric explained this Very well. There is no particular certification which is going to build your carrier. Though certifications enhance your confidence level that you know the concepts of advertising on that particular platform.
so I suggest to have certification on all the platforms. But still if you don't want to have certifications in all then go for Mobile First.
