RALEIGH, NC— Two employees of the Raleigh based Internet Marketing Company, TriMark Solutions, have completed Google’s certification process for becoming Qualified Google Advertising Professionals.

Randy E. Goins, President and Founder of TriMark Solutions, is among roughly 500 certified Google Advertising Professional Individuals in the United States. The Google Advertising Professionals (GAP) program was launched in 2004 and is a resource for advertisers and third party marketers who are skilled at managing Google's AdWords cost-per-click program.

Goins says that the GAP certification program has given him a major advantage over other internet marketing companies in the area.

“TriMark Solutions has gained the knowledge and understanding required to professionally develop, implement, and manage pay-per-click marketing,” says Goins. “This enables our clients to maximize their Internet advertising results while saving time and money due to allowing a Qualified Google Advertising Professional to manage their online advertising program.”

In order to achieve the Google Advertising Professional level, Goins had to accomplish the following:
-Manage multiple client advertising programs through an advanced AdWords account, known as My Client Center for 90 days.
-Gain additional AdWords knowledge through comprehensive, web-based training.
-Build and maintain a total advertising spend exceeding the minimum requirement of $1,000 USD.
-Pass the 90-minute, 104-question Google Advertising Professional Exam online to demonstrate competence and a firm grasp on the Google AdWords product.

Goins also required his Internet Marketing Specialist, Caroline Thompson, to gain Google Advertising Professional Status by completing the GAP program. Thompson, 21, is a rising senior at Appalachian State University and this is her first year working for TriMark.

Besides Google's recognition as a qualified, tested AdWords professional, the certification allows TriMark Solutions to display the official Qualified GAP logo which serves as a universal symbol of skills and expertise in the online advertising community.
