A digital agency, based in South Normanton, has become one of only a handful in the UK to achieve Google’s new ‘partner specialist’ accreditation.

It follows an invitation sent out by Google to its partners to test their online marketing knowledge in a series of exams covering the ins and outs of digital advertising.

The exams covered six key areas that all needed to be passed, and digital consultants Mitch Brown and Rob White both achieved the accreditation at the first attempt on behalf of Purpose Media.

Mitch said: “This is a real coup for the business. There are many benefits to being a Google partner. You have direct contact with Google, access to test new features before official release, training sessions to keep up with latest pay-per-click practices and much more.

“We are one of just over 100 Google premier partners in the UK, which is a remarkable achievement and has equipped us with the right tools to tackle online advertising for our clients.

Rob added: “Accreditation is all about the work we do with, and for, our clients. As a certified Google specialist, we are now well versed in all things digital and know how to spot the right opportunities for a variety of clients.”
