What is the Google Premier Partner program?

What does it mean to be a Google Premier Partner anyway? Great question. Google Premier Partners are recognized for maximizing campaign success for businesses, driving growth by maintaining high-performing campaigns, and demonstrating Google Ads skills and expertise with certifications.

In 2022, Google revamped its program with some new requirements (and new benefits for partners). One additional requirement is that at least 50% of account strategists must be Google Ads certified (LOCALiQ has over 300 Google Ads certified team members!). Another is that Premier Partners must have a minimum optimization score of 70%, meaning that campaigns are optimized to perform at the highest capacity, leading to more focused campaigns that yield better results for LOCALiQ customers.

Google also looks at customer growth, retention, and product differentiation, meaning the types of solutions our customers are running across Google.

LOCALiQ was found to outperform 97% of other Google Ads providers in these areas, in order to keep our Premier Partner status.

According to Davang Shah, Senior Director of Google Ads Marketing, Google Premier Partners “stand out based on their commitment to developing product expertise,” as well as building new customer relationships and helping their current customers grow.

All this combined means that Google has found we’re excelling in delivering results for our customers on Google.


Benefits of working with a Google Premier Partner
