Google has launched a search site listing certified professionals and marketing agencies.
From the company’s description:
Google Advertising Professionals are not Google employees, but rather are online marketing professionals, agencies, and other individuals such as search engine marketers (SEMs), search engine optimizers (SEOs), and marketing consultants. They have been certified by Google to manage AdWords accounts. To become qualified, professionals must demonstrate an in-depth understanding of AdWords by passing exams, and they must meet all our qualification guidelines
You may not have a need for an Internet marketing agency now, but it’s a handy resource to bookmark. Then again, since you’re here at Big Thinking for Small Business, save some time and bookmark our Google Advertising Professionals listing.
