Google Partners Connect Event – Video Marketing

 

If you want to get an idea of what exactly happens at one of our Google Partners events, how the room is set up etc., then watch the video! This is just a snippet of the end, after the live stream presentation by experts in online marketing coming from Google offices in California has concluded. Before the live stream, Kendra answers any initial questions and goes over the basics of AdWords. The stream lasts about an hour, and then afterwards there is the opportunity to ask Kendra any new or clarifying questions. There is a lot of information that they pack into that hour, but that is why Kendra there – she is our Google certified Partner. This means that she is also an expert in Google advertising, as Partners are great vaults of knowledge and have to keep up yearly certification.
