Google Partner Search today received a new functionality that allows advertisers looking for account management support to directly initiate contact with certified partners by filling out a lead form, and for certified partners to easily review and respond to inbound inquiries.
"And, to make the lead management process more efficient, Google also added a "Contact us" on the company profile page, enabling clients to review and contact certified partners directly through Partner Search.
Prospective clients will automatically be sent a confirmation email that lead was sent, and your company will receive email alert that a new lead is available for review by clicking "Lead Management" link," explains Google.
"For certified partners, new "Lead Management" will make it easier to track where leads are coming from, and understand conversion rates for different lead sources. Partners having offices in multiple countries, recommend to have a profile page for each country. This'll make it easier for prospective clients to find local partner support. If you opt to do this, you'll need to have a min of one certified individual in the respective country (a certified individual can only be associated with one company profile)," advised Google.
"In addition, to increase the likelihood of receiving targeted leads, make sure that your company's profile info is up-to-date, and that you've set the budget range to what you're willing to manage. You may edit the min and max budget managed, along with industries, languages and countries served, and services provided, by clicking "My Company" tab, selecting "Profile", then reviewing your company's "Service Information"."
