Google AdWords Certification for Individuals in Google Partners | #AdWordsAnswers
Hello Adwords Community
This is Manasi from the Google AdWords Team.
Have you ever wondered if you can sign up for the Google Partners Program as an individual?
Google Partners is Google’s program for advertising agencies, digital marketing professionals, and other online consultants. When signing up on google.com/partners, you may choose not to affiliate an agency or company with your profile, which will make your profile an individual profile. Most online digital consultants who wish to take the certifications under the Google Partners Program sign up for this.
By signing up as an individual on Google Partners and taking the certifications, you get the following benefits:
- Demonstrate your expertise: Show current and prospective clients that you're a certified online advertising professional with a personalized certificate that you can print, as well as a Google Partners public profile page listing your certifications.
- Help your agency earn the Google Partner badge: To earn the Partner badge, agencies need at least one of their affiliated members to be AdWords certified, in addition to other requirements.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You won’t get an explicit option to sign up as an individual at any point of time during the sign-up process. You should start the process by selecting the “I’m an Agency” option, but choose not to affiliate yourself with a Company in the “Company Affiliation” section.
Hope this helps! If you have any doubts, please feel free to leave them as comments in the section below and we would be glad to take them up!
