Google Partners Connect: Get Certified: Host Your First Connect Event!

Badged Google Partner

Badged Google Partner

Super excited about the upcoming Google Partners Connect event for badged partners.

 

I've hosted every single Google Partners Connect event and the next one will be no exception even though I will be on a plane going to Google for the RS / TC Meetup this year.

 

If you aren't badged yet don't worry, there's still plenty of time to get badged. All you need to do is pass the AdWords Fundamentals and one other test, however, you might also consider going for the Google Partners Specialist Certification where you can get certified for all of the Google Partners Certifications for:

 

AdWords Fundamentals

AdWords Search

AdWords Display

Mobile

Shopping

and Video

Which event are you headed to? I thought the Adwords summit wasn't until November.

Hi @Molly Y,

 

Great to hear on all the good stuff happening. 

 

As for becoming a badged Google Partner, there is a bit more to it now... and even a 12-month process. Check out a recent thread I made covering it all. 

 

What TC/RS event are you heading to? As a RS myself, maybe I can make it out. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hey @Shanee_Kirk

 

Headed to the  Annual RS/TC Meetup, no summit this year but understand it will be a different format I'm an RS in the Hangouts help forum and just found out I'm being promoted to TC.

Hey @James_Clemens


Thanks for your feedback and information. I'm really glad to hear they have ramped up the process. It makes holding the Google Partner badged status even better!

As for the meet up you would need to contact the CM for that forum to get details about getting signed up, I was notified in the help forum of the meetup and told that I would receive an email.

Hi @Molly Y,

 

Thanks, I did find out the TC/RS meetup was not for Adwords, which is what I am a RS for.

 

Yes, I agree on the changes to being a badged Google Partner. There have been lots of changes overall, including terminology we are to use, such as saying badged Google Partner and not Google Badged Partner... and not claiming to be associated with Google or being trusted by Google and stuff like that. Stuff that has been in use for years by badged Google Partners. It's all covered in the Brand Playbook for Agencies within the Insights at Google Partner portal. Lots of changes for us... and for anyone working to become badged.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
