The Johannesburg-based digital performance agency – founded by a former Googler – has achieved Premier 2022 status in the Google Partners program.
Achieving Google Premier status is a big deal in the industry; it means being recognized as one of the top 3% Google Partners in South Africa.
In order to qualify as one of Google’s Premier Partners, the expectations and criteria are rigorous; an agency should consistently tick Google’s performance boxes for clients, expert knowledge, and product certification.
For a company whose humble beginnings and backstory began in 2016 between a former Googler and a local digital expert reflecting on the digital industry in the African context, this is a prestigious honor. It is also a recognition of their hard work over the years for many diverse brands including Bidorbuy, UNICEF, UNFPA, FitChef, Africrest, Skipwaste – both in South Africa and around the world.
Prebo Digital is synonymous with true partnership with customers looking for real long-term growth. One of their long-time clients, Keith Kingston, Global Technical Director of Weddingsonline, explains it this way: “We partner with Prebo Digital because they provide industry-leading solutions to maximize ROI on Facebook and Google in PPC.”
But what exactly does the Google Premier partnership mean?
Dr. Seuss would say that means they’re going far, but let Davang Shah, Senior Director at Google Ads Marketing, explain what makes a company shine in the digital performance space and appear on Google’s radar: “These companies stand out for their commitment to developing product expertise, building new customer relationships and growing existing customers. We look forward to supporting them as they help their customers succeed online. »
Prebo Digital Director and Co-Founder Timo Dinkelman explains how this award will impact the team going forward: “Becoming a Google Premier Partner is about more than earning certificates and making expenses. Premier Partners are hand-picked by Google for strategic growth and partnership. It’s also a vote of confidence from Google that any business choosing to work with a Premier Partner can expect excellence, support and growth.”
As Prebo rides the wave of being selected as part of the Google Partners program, it will have specialized tools, resources and support to further help its customers succeed and grow online.
Exclusive, expert resources from Google Premier Partners include the following:
- Support for advanced announcements
- Executive experiences (Round tables with the Google Product and Sales Leadership team, tailor-made sales coaching)
- Dedicated account support
- Beta product (Stay ahead of the industry by testing new Google technologies)
For Prebo Digital, this will mean nuanced innovation and efficiency to maximize campaign success for all of their clients; Drive growth by nurturing their clients’ campaigns and demonstrating Google Ads skills and expertise with certifications.
For clients, an agency with Google Premier status not only offers specialized industry know-how, but also has a direct line of communication with Google for quick issue resolution; guaranteeing optimized campaigns that generate more highly qualified leads, more results and more profits. (Think of it as an agency having its own personal Dragon’s Den “dragon” on its team).
What will it look like in the future?
The ever-changing Google landscape means that no company can rest on its laurels. As Prebo Digital proudly presents the Google Premier Partners accreditation badge, their ongoing commitment will be to continue to tick the Google Partner boxes, partner with customers for success, and continue to improve as a team – clearly a combination winner!
