Specialist challenge certificate

Hi there,

 

I signed up for Google Partner as an Individual MKT consultant, and I am working on AdWords exam. As far as I am concerned, if I pass the AdWords Fundamentals exam and all 6 AdWords exams by Saturday, September 30, 2017, I will receive a limited-edition framed certificate, reserved for first-rate AdWords Specialists.

However, the condition for certificate is to affiliate with agency company. I am working for a E-commerce company and have some contact with other Google Partners. So am I qualified for the certificate and how to get enough conditions for framed one?

Hello @Linh T,

Thanks for sharing the link, the challenge yearly has been a great way to get everyone involved and certified. In the past individuals who passed all the tests where given the chance to get the certificate. Does you agency not have a partners page? It might be worth checking to see if that is an option. You still have plenty of time. Sign up for Google Partners

Sorry for not making it clear. Actually, I am working in an Ecommerce company,  not an agency. We oursource  some of our accounts with few Google Partners while still controling some our own adwords account. So my question is whether i can get my certificate if i am not an agency staff?  And I am living in Vietnam, is the campaign of framed certificate applicable?

Hi @Linh T,

 

To assist Spencer, I wanted to point out that the person needs to be associated with a badged Google Partner and live in the United States or Canada. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Thanks, I wasn't sure the way it was written:
"AdWords Fundamentals exam AND all 6 AdWords exams".
So I understood Fundamentals + 6exams and was wondering if they were including the latest one (Mobile Site)...

Hi AdOnline,

 

You are very welcome... and I think you are actually correct.

 

I went back and reread the actual article and this year looks to include the Mobile Site cert, as well. That is part of the AdWords certifications family now. 

 

Cheers,

 

James

This is such a shame. The mobile site certification is absolutly not a marketing certification, but more a webmaster certification. I still don't understand why they've integrated it in Adwords :-(

Hi AdOnline,

 

I can see where it could be seen that way. Having taken and passed the Mobile Sites certification, I think it is solid information that aligns with the mobile first movement Google and the rest of the world is now on. To be a great AdWords advertiser, we have to fully understand mobile and how it is twisted into the user experience of shoppers. The Webmaster platform is more about search whereas the Mobile Sites is focused solidly on mobile.

 

 

  • Part 1: Why Mobile Sites Matter - Review the importance of mobile speed and user design.
  • Part 2: Improve Mobile Site Speed - Learn how to improve mobile site speed and test it.
  • Part 3: Create an Effective Mobile UX - Learn about user experience and design principles for mobile sites.
  • Part 4: Advanced Web Technologies - Get an introduction to advanced web technologies.

 

 

Personally, I enjoyed the information and test... but I do love web development and can relate to the topic. Maybe give it a chance to win you over? Smiley Happy

 

All the Best,

 

James
