How to Earn the Badge?
To become a Premium Partner, an agency must meet the terms and conditions specified by Google, which are periodically updated, and become a Google Partner first. The last requirements update was scheduled for June 2020, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this was postponed. It can be expected that Google will introduce updated requirements in 2021. If you want to know the current requirements, visit the Google Ads Help website – there, you will find all the information you need.
The prestigious Google Partner Premier status is awarded annually to the top 3% of advertising agencies and third-parties among all those signed up for the free Google Partners program.
The most important determining factors are:
- annual Ads spend across all the accounts managed by an agency,
- client growth,
- retaining existing clients.
