Google Recognizes Team SI as an All-Star Member

Written by on Wednesday, June 24, 2015

We are very excited to announce that Team SI has been named a Google Allstar member for 2015. Team SI media specialists Michael Joiner and Ashton Cothren will enjoy an all expenses paid trip to the Googleplex located just south of San Francisco in Mountain View, California at the end of July.

Since 2013, Team SI has been a certified Google partner, meaning that Google recognizes our proven success and that we stay up to date on the latest Google tools and products by passing Google-administered certification exams every year. Team SI is one out of only seven recognized Google Partners in the state of Arkansas. More than 14,000 agencies from all over the world competed for the right to attend this prestigious event and only 200 of them were selected, Team SI being one of them.  

Michael and Ashton get to visit one of the most-liked workplaces in the world! Googleplex is the headquarters for Google, the Internet search engine giant and one of the most powerful companies in the technology industry. The campus itself has more than 2 million square feet of office space and is unlike any office in the United States.  While employees are expected to work in a fast-pace world, Google rewards its employees with a number of amenities.  Amenities on campus include two swim-in-place pools, several employee lounges, a salon, a sand volleyball court and gourmet meals in the cafeteria.  “Googlers” who have young children also have the option of an on-site daycare where Google children can take advantage of technological toys, and you can even bring your furry friend to work with you (only dogs though).  To put the cherry on top, Google employees can wrap up their long day with a Google-subsidized professional massage. 

Not just anyone can become a Google Allstar Member.  The following qualifications must be met before being considered:

  • - Agencies already must be a Google Partner 

    - Agencies have to accumulate $25,000 spend on new accounts      after the contest start date which is early February

  • - Agencies have to apply Adwords offers on new accounts

  • We at Team SI are proud to say we are certified Google Partners and now Google Allstar members.  Michael and Ashton will share their personal experiences in August and talk about their personal experiences at Googleplex.
