Google Shortlist Studio-40 as a Top 30 UK Agency
Google has shortlisted a group of high potential digital agencies in the UK and chosen just 30 out of the 20,000 that participate in the Google Partners program. We are delighted to have been selected.
Since its inception back in 2013, Google Partners (of which we were one of the first!), has been a fantastic way of raising the quality and standards across digital marketing.
However, with, (at last count) some 20,000+ agencies and freelancers now Google Partners, it has lost some of its exclusivity and become an expectation of many clients.
Following feedback from selected Google Partners, including Studio-40, Google wanted a new way to recognise those agencies that have the potential for accelerated growth and that demonstrate, time and again, best practices when it comes to digital activity and customer care.
And so…the Elevator program was born, Google’s latest business support program which sees just 250 UK digital marketing agencies invited in to join – and we are thrilled to announce that we are one!
Through Elevator, we will be able to make the most of additional training and support, including identifying a ‘rising star’ within our business who will benefit from further online Google training. What’s more, as an Elevator member we’ll benefit from continued team development and dedicated support to help accelerate our growth as well as receiving Google news and updates ahead of the rest of the UK – a key factor in staying ahead of the competition. Great news for us and our clients!
Of the 250 agencies selected to join the Elevator program, just 30 were invited to join Google’s Business Coaching Program; a targeted development program that gives selected agencies, amongst other things, access to well-respected business coach, Robert Craven (right). Through regular meetings and activities, the program puts the delegates, including our very own Chris Tyrrell, through their paces, and provides a fantastic opportunity to network and benchmark our provision against other agencies.
Speaking of our success, Managing Director, Chris Tyrrell said, “As one of the first Google Partners back in 2013, we enjoy a great relationship with Google and we are proud to be asked to join both the Elevator and Business Coaching program.” He continued, “For us this means the work we have done to develop our staff, adopt best Google practices and deliver the highest levels of customer care, have been recognised and rewarded and we look forward to working with our Google Development Manager to continue to grow our business and help our clients do the same.”
