Qualified Google Advertising Professional

I finally took a few days away from everything and got my Google Qualified Advertising Professional certification.

To get this recognition I:
• Accepted the terms of the Google Qualified Advertising Professional program.
• Managed at least one AdWords account in a master account for 90 days.
• Built and maintained the Google Qualified Advertising Professional 90-day spend requirement.
• Passed the Google Advertising Professional Exam. (I won’t reveal my score but suffice it to say I could make the honor roll)

The next step is Microsoft adExcellence certification. Yahoo has discontinued their ad professional certifications.

In 1997 my brother Andy and I formed The Info Group which has grown into a full service Digital Marketing & Web Design Agency based in Dallas, TX. In 1998 I kept my musical juices flowing and formed FruitCake-SuperBeing an electronically challenged blues hop band. In 2008 we launched Smart On SEO a business offering live SEO Training in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. I have earned my Google Adwords Certification and Microsoft adExcellence Member status and hope to translate that into more business for The Info Group and become a Seminars for Success Trainer for Google Adwords and Analytics. This year also saw FruitCake-SuperBeing take an extended break, although late in the year I began working on a new musical project called Wedgie White. It's 2013 and The Info Group is still my "day job" but I've added photo booth to my skill set helping my wife run her business Photo Booth Rentals DFW. FruitCake-SuperBeing is back on the circuit and sounding better than ever.
