Sydney-based digital agency Online Marketing Gurus (OMG) now has a trifecta of partnerships with three major platforms.
OMG has been recognised as a 2022 Google Premier Partner this week which places it in the top three percent of companies managing Google accounts globally.
Google recognises the achievements of top-performing digital marketing partners across the globe by awarding Premier Partner status as part of the new Google Partners program.
Qualification depends upon a level of performance, spend and certification relating to ad campaigns by top performing digital marketing partners around the world.
“These companies stand out based on their commitment to developing product expertise, building new client relationships, and helping their current clients grow,” said Davang Shah, Senior Director, Google Ads Marketing.
OMG was also recently ranked as one of the top Facebook premier agencies as well as being made one of only a handful of TikTok agency partners in Australia.
The team of gurus at Online Marketing Gurus provides SEO services, content strategy, pay-per-click management, lead generation, display and social media advertising for brands big and small, local and global including the likes of Calvin Klein Australia, Vodafone and Universal Store.
Online Marketing Gurus was launched in Sydney in 2012 and has since partnered with over 1000 companies, and expanded globally.
The agency has received significant recognition with their inclusion in the Smart50, Deloitte Technology Fast 50, Financial Times 1000 High-Growth Companies Asia Pacific, BRW Fast Starters, Clutch Top 100
Companies, as well as wins in the Optus My Business Awards, SEMrush Search Awards, and The Australian Business Awards.
But their CEO says it isn’t that accolade itself that is important to the agency. While the Premier Partners program has existed for longer than just this year, this 2022 iteration offers benefits to support the growth and success of the companies using Google marketing platforms.
“As a recognised Google Premier Partner, Online Market Gurus will access even more innovative tools, resources, and support to help our clients succeed and grow online,” CEO of the company’s Asia Pacific region, Wasif Kasim, said.
