Google took a big step recently by finally allowing Canadian companies to become Adwords Qualified; a stamp of a approval previously denied to Google’s ignored neighbors. Yes, that is ever so subtle bitterness you sense. Thankfully however I can begin to put to rest my ill will now that Google has come to its senses.
What does it take for a company to become Adwords Qualified?
To become a Qualified Company in the Google Advertising Professionals program, a company must:
- Have a billing and mailing address in a country where company qualification is available.
- Employ at least two Qualified Individuals in the program. Individuals must be qualified under the main company-registered My Client Center account and not their own account. See the requirements for becoming a Qualified Individual.
- Build and maintain the minimum 90-day required total client spend (spend requirements vary by country) for the company’s My Client Center account.
