SteadyRain Achieves Google Partner Certification

SteadyRain, St. Louis-based Internet strategy, development and online marketing agency, is proud to announce its achievement of becoming a Certified Google Partner.

The Google Partners program identifies trusted and reliable online marketing companies that excel with Google products. To become a Google Partner, online marketing agencies must have a proven track record of delivering results for their clients, employ Google Adwords-certified online marketers and stay current on Google’s best practices, tools and products.

“Being recognized as a Google Partner is very exciting for us and a true testament to our team’s commitment to continue to stay on the cutting edge of paid search marketing,” said David Kidd, SteadyRain Director of Online Marketing. “We continue to focus on exceeding our clients’ expectations, and being identified as a trusted company by Google for our hard work is great validation.”

Because of this achievement, SteadyRain’s clients will benefit from faster service within Google products and tools as well as the reassurance and comfort that they are working with a recognized expert in the online marketing space. The achievement also provides an upgraded arsenal of Google tools to the agency team, allowing SteadyRain to further enhance its paid search services and continue to help clients increase their return on investment while cutting overall campaign costs.

“We decided several years ago that the accepted fee model for managing paid search marketing, tying management fees to overall customer media spend, was not the model we wanted to follow,” said Thompson Knox, President at SteadyRain. “Our approach of removing the incentive for higher media budgets allows us to deliver much higher returns for our clients. This recognition makes me even more convinced that being client-centric, even in your fees schedule, is always good for business. I’m very proud of the team for this achievement.”
