Google AdWords Certified Partner

In 2011, I came to realize that ads on the Google search and display networks were quite cost effective in bringing qualified leads to a website. So I started to study Google AdWords and to read books about it. 

I was encouraged by my friend Jonathan Villiard, an SEO and AdWords specialist,  to obtain my certification. I followed his advice and early this year, I passed both the Google AdWords Fundamentals Exam and the Search Advertising Advanced Exam.

Passing the two Google exams made me an AdWords Qualified Individual but that was not enough for partner status. I had to manage over $10,000 of advertising in 60 days. I did and received this morning an email confirming my status as a Google AdWords Certified Partner
