Following our recent Business of the Year 2016 win at the Digital DNA Awards, we have just been announced as a Premier Google Partner.
Following our recent Business of the Year 2016 win at the Digital DNA Awards, we have just been announced as a Premier Google Partner with an impressive four specialisations - the most currently awarded to any agency throughout the UK and Ireland!
What does it mean to be a Premier Google Partner?
To become a standard Google Partner an agency must have one affiliated individual certified in AdWords and meet specified spend and performance requirements. The newly introduced Premier Google Partner status goes above and beyond these requirements - two affiliated individuals must be AdWords certified (our whole team are fully certified), higher spend requirements must be met and more demanding performance levels are set.
What are specialisations and how are they awarded?
Company specialisations recognise and differentiate agencies with specific AdWords product expertise. These are determined using criteria such as affiliate certifications, demonstrating expertise through effective campaigns and having a minimum AdWords spend in that area. Loud Mouth Media were awarded an impressive four specialisations - recognising our advanced level of expertise in Search, Shopping, Display and Mobile Advertising - with many large competitors throughout the UK and Ireland only achieving one or two in comparison.
When asked about this recent recognition Mark Haslam, Managing Director of Loud Mouth Media said: 'Obviously we are absolutely delighted with yet another major achievement this year. I have always wanted Google to distinguish between partnership levels - whilst it is an achievement to become a Google Partner, at Loud Mouth Media we have always went above and beyond the criteria required for this. This new Premier Partner status, along with our extensive specialisations, acknowledges the hard work we put into our clients' campaigns and really distinguishes us as leaders amongst our key competitors.'
