Premier Google Partners demonstrate expertise beyond Google Partner status when it comes to AdWords skill and expertise, Google ad spend requirements, and the ability to maintain and grow a customer base. SmartBug Media is eligible for all benefits received by Google Partners, including product trainings, early access to new AdWords products and features, certifications, and the eligibility for dedicated account management. A Google Premier Partner may also receive additional perks that can include executive business trainings and access to Google's annual Partners summit.

SmartBug Media's company performance was considered regarding client revenue growth, client retention, overall revenue growth, and growth in number of advertisers over an 18-month period.  "We're really excited that we have been recognized by Google as a world-class AdWords partner," says Ryan Malone, founder and CEO of SmartBug Media. "With this Premier Partnership, SmartBug will be able to elevate the services we're able to provide to all of our clients through access to new products and features, direct account support, and further trainings.
