Becoming a Google Partner Step 5: About the Partners Google +Community


This is the last chapter in our series covering the basics of the Google Partners Program. Hopefully, you’ve learned a bit more about not only why becoming a partner is so advantageous, but what it can do for your clients efforts in AdWords. There’s no better place to grow and learn than at the feet of the people who make it all happen. That’s what Google is, after all, the place where all the magic of online advertising takes place. Being a Partner ensures you’ll always have a front-row seat at the show.



The Partners +Community on Google is a place where you can ask questions and share experiences with other web professionals and Google experts. You can find examples of how you can grow your business and get advice on Google products. You'll have the opportunity to build relationships with your peers and hang out with Google specialists and thought leaders.



The Partners +Community on Google is available to members of Google Partners in the majority of locations where AdWords is available.



Here's how to sign up for the Partners Google +Community:

  1. Sign in to Partners at https://www.google.com/partners/.
  2. Click Community in the navigation bar.
  3. Click the button to join, which will open the Partners Community page on Google+.
  4. From here, you can request to join the Partners Community. Note that you must be signed in to a Google+ account to see the button. Typically, your request will be answered within 72 hours.



If you live in a country where there isn't a Partners +Community on Google, you can still join the conversation by following the official Partners Google Page. In your Partners account, go to the "Community" page and then add Partners to your circles by clicking the Follow button.


After the time you’ve spent learning all about the Google Partners Program, and seeing the wonderful benefits for both your agency and your client list, it’s time to take the necessary steps to get involved. There’s plenty of opportunity and room to grow as long as you follow best practices, keep your eyes on the prize, and constantly look for information to give you an edge over your competition. That’s where being a Partner can make all the difference, so what are you waiting for? Get started on the pathway to Partner status today.
