Today, we’re pleased to announce that Ad House Advertising has achieved the Google criteria to be named a Google AdWords Certified Partner (GACP). Only about 850 companies in the United States have achieved that status.
Google AdWords Certified Partners are made up of search engine optimizers (SEOs), online marketing professionals, agencies, and other individuals such as search engine marketers (SEMs), who’ve been certified by Google to manage AdWords accounts. To become qualified, professionals must demonstrate an in-depth understanding of AdWords by passing stringent exams and meet all the other Google criteria.
Ad House Advertising, a division of Edit House Productions LLC, has two members who are Google Qualified Individuals, the most located in New Mexico. Ryan Smith has earned both the Google Search Network and Display Network qualifications; Kim Smith has earned the Google Search Network qualification.
Ad House offers online marketing through pay-per-click ads, social media, website development, and SEO as well as intergrating the online components into a broader, strategic marketing plan.
Edit House Productions was formed in 2000 and serves clients across the country. The company separated its on-air and online marketing services under the Ad House name in 2012.
Kim says she’s always been fascinated with mass communication and the way that people receive news, advertisements, and information. That’s changed a lot in the last few years!
At Edit House, she’s involved in the development of video messages for our clients’ broadcast media buys, website, and training videos as well as overseeing the media buying for our clients.
She loves learning the specifics of each client’s business and designing a plan to move them forward.
Kim also loves documentary production and has won several national and international awards for writing and production. Those productions have taken Kim and Ed to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to NASA’s mission control in Houston, to most areas of New Mexico.
Kim earned her MA and BA degrees in Mass Communication from the University of South Dakota, then taught at state universities in Kansas before starting her own advertising agency in 1990. After a move to New Mexico in 1995 and 10 years in broadcast television sales management, she joined Ed in the company in 2005.
She enjoys gardening, camping, cooking, and time with her family and golden retriever, Pete.
