Summer 2016 is a time of passion, excellence, and good-natured competition. For our Certified Publishing Partners, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Google Certified Publishing Partner Summer Challenge on July 1st.
After launching in October 2015, Google’s Certified Publishing Partner (GCPP) program encompasses close to 40 partners with proven expertise in driving innovation and growth for hundreds of thousands of publishers globally. Enabled by Google’s publisher solutions – Google AdSense, DoubleClick for Publishers, and DoubleClick Ad Exchange – each partner is trained to help publishers of various sizes and verticals optimize monetization strategies. Today, we’re launching this global contest to identify and recognize Certified Publishing Partners who have shown immense dedication and impressive expertise and several critical areas.
- Customer Satisfaction Award: A partner who demonstrates outstanding overall quality of services for publishers, a key pillar of the Certified Publishing Partner program.
- Mobile Champion Award: A partner who demonstrates strong strategy and implementation to help publishers capture mobile opportunities with strong user experiences and effective monetization.
- Business Innovation Award: A partner who shows leadership in the publishing business, by demonstrating how they are innovators on all fronts from product to marketing to sales to support, and that their innovation has tangible impact on revenue and publisher satisfaction.
The contest will run from July 2016 through September 2016, with awards announced around October 2016. If you are one of our Certified Publishing Partners, you will receive an invitation to enter the contest. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Publishing Partner, apply here.
