Google Partners are agencies, marketing professionals and online experts who have been certified by Google to manage AdWords accounts. To achieve Google Partner status, agencies must earn the Google Partner Badge, which signifies that the company is healthy, has happy customers, and demonstrates Google best practices.
If you're new to AdWords, we suggest that you learn more about how AdWords works before hiring a Google Partner. That way, you can define your advertising goals and be ready to discuss them should you decide to work with a Google Partner.
There are more than 5,000 Google Partners worldwide. To find one that fits your needs, use Google Partner Search, which lets you search for a Partner by name, or based on your location, advertising budget, or the type of service you want help with.

If a Google Partner is setting up a new AdWords account for you, we suggest you also maintain access to your account. Do this by asking your professional to give your email address administrative access to the account.
A company might become qualified by having a few individuals who are certified. Check that your specific account manager took the proficiency exams. You want to make sure that the person managing your account has the knowledge you need.
Agencies have many effective ways of charging, but make sure you understand how much of your money is going to Google for the ads served, and how much to the agency for their work. You can request copies of Google invoices to see a breakdown of the charges. Here are some additional questions to keep in mind:
The costs for working with a Google Partner are separate from your AdWords account costs. The former depends on the agreement that you and your account manager settle on. Google doesn't officiate over negotiations between clients and managers and isn't responsible for any agreement you may enter into. AdWords account costs are billed separately and depend on your cost-per-click, daily budget, and ad performance.
