I am Google AdWords certified but how can I get a partner badge? Do I need to spend money? I don't have a company yet. I am a freelancer.

Hello @Abdullah Al A,

 

You can be a Google Partner even if you are a freelancer. I am the proof :-) First you have to create a profile as a "company" (you can use your name as company name). Here is how to do it:

https://support.google.com/partners/answer/3198387

 

Then you have to connect your personal profile to the company profile (it is done by entering to your individual profile and assigning the company there). 

 

In your company profile you will see what exactly what you have to achieve to become a Google Partner. 

 

You can check the requirements to obtain the Google Partner badge here:

Hi @Abdullah Al A,

 

Congratulations on your progress. 

 

There is a dedicated Google Partners community a few floors down from this AdWords Community. We would love to hear from you over there... and there is a team dedicated (including myself) to Google Partners. 

 

Cheers,

 

James

How to get the Badged Google Partner Status in this community?

Hi Abdullah,

 

Once the badged Google Partner designation is earned and their account here in the communities is associated with the badged Google Partner company profile, you would need to add the badged Google Partner company URL to their account here by clicking on the two dots just under your email address (in the upper left hand side panel) under your profile photo and then clicking on My Settings. Once the URL is added there, you have to complete the steps here. Now you have to give the system a few weeks for it all to complete and then you will see the badged Google Partner designation here in the communities. If after two weeks it does not show, let me know I will get it done manually for you. 

 

Be sure to stop by the Google Partner community and stay active with us. Smiley Happy

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
