Google grants ICAP Group the Google AdWords Premier Partner
status for Greece, Romania and Cyprus
ICAP Group is pleased to announce that it has been granted the status of Google AdWords Premier Partner for AdWords sales in the Greek, Romanian and Cypriot market. This distinction is an evolution of ICAP Group’s previous status of Google AdWords Authorized Reseller, that it has owned since 2008 and practically means that Google authorizes ICAP Group to sell, implement and fully support AdWords campaigns across the region. The campaigns are implemented in Google’s search results, all websites that have partnered with Google (display partners) as well as on mobile devices. ICAP Group is the first Google AdWords Premier Partner in Greece and Cyprus.
Most notably, ICAP Group has already proved its capability to implement high quality AdWords campaigns in Greece, Cyprus Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia. Especially in Greece, ICAP achieved a very high quality score for 95% of the campaigns implemented in 2011, resulting in a comparatively large number of clicks / website visits at a low cost (based on Google’s Quality Scorecard December 2011).
As a Google AdWords Premier Partner, ICAP Group meets Google’s highest standards and criteria for quality and customer service, which include completing extensive Google product and account management training. This ensures that ICAP Group can provide Greek businesses with the most effective AdWords advertising solutions.
The Google AdWords Premier Partner Program connects Google’s trusted and experienced AdWords partners with small and medium sized businesses that want expert help in creating, managing and optimizing their online advertising campaigns. ICAP Group has been authorized to resell Google AdWords since 2009.
