Fort Myers, FL– (January 23, 2015) – Haystak® Digital Marketing, which provides digital marketing products and services for the automotive industry, today announced that Google named Haystak the winner of a North America Premier SMB Partner Award in the Mobile Champion category. This is the third consecutive year that Haystak has been acknowledged in Google’s Premier SMB Partner Awards and the first year the company has achieved the mobile designation. The Mobile Champion Award was based on the feedback of Haystak’s small business customers across the U.S. and Canada.
“The Google AdWords Premier SMB Partner Program is a great way for small businesses to connect with companies who can help them make the most of their online advertising,” says Ben Wood, head of Google’s Americas channel sales partnerships. “Guided by the expertise of our trusted partners like Haystak Digital Marketing, small- and medium-sized businesses can maximize the value and performance of their campaigns.”
Entries were judged by Google through the use of AdWords performance data or advertiser survey data in accordance with the official rules. The prizes were awarded to entrants whose aggregate performance was evaluated as having the highest score in the judging criteria. Specifically, the Mobile Champion Award was based on the Premier SMB Partner Program (PSP) with the highest average click-through-rate (CTR) on mobile ads during the competition period.
Haystak attributes their mobile achievements to the company’s fully embedded mobile strategy and complete adoption of Google’s Enhanced Campaigns.
Julio Gonzalez, Haystak Digital Marketing senior director of operations, commented, “Mobile is a must for retail automotive success today.
