Congratulations! You’ve completed an entire series at DemandQuest! You can now add your DemandQuest certification to your LinkedIn profile. You don’t need to be Google certified to add the DQ certification and if you did get Google certified, you can add both.
Here’s how to do it:
Go to your personal LinkedIn profile and scroll all the way down to Accomplishments.
Click on the + (add) button and then click on Certificates
Enter the name of the digital marketing series you completed (Google Analytics, Google AdWords, SEO, GTM, etc.) in the Certification name box. Then enter Demand Quest, Inc. in the Certification Authority box. Please note that LinkedIn is really finicky and you must wait for Demand Quest Inc. to populate. You’ll recognize the teal blue with the white DQ label. Be patient. You have to have the space between the Demand and the Quest and it should auto-populate.
There is no license number and the certificate does not expire so just enter the date of the class in the “From” box. Then hit SAVE and it should appear on your profile page.
As always, please let us know if you have any issues, questions, or concerns!
Oh and here’s some more information about how to add Google partner badges and certifications to your website and profile: https://support.google.com/partners/answer/3164957

Ted Kozlowski (online advertising and PPC teacher at DemandQuest) started his career in Silicon Valley and if you’ve ever wondered how insane the start-up industry is, check out this great new book, Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble, by Dan Lyons, who’s a writer for the show Silicon Valley on HBO. Lyons is brutally honest about his time at Hubspot (marketing automation software start-up) where he considered himself a “beached white whale” in an overly upbeat, frat-like work environment surrounded by twenty-somethings. It’s a great look at what the inner workings of a very successful tech start-up are like these days.
It rings especially true for some of our students who find themselves at an unexpected career change. We have a number of students who are starting out in marketing after decades of successful careers in other fields. Lyons thinks it’s not about a “takedown” of Hubsot. As Lyons puts it “I think it’s a book about a 50-year-old guy trying to reinvent himself and create a new career,” he says. “That’s the part of the book that’s resonated for people. I’ve been amazed by my inbox. I have all of these letters [from readers] saying they’ve gone through the same thing.” [Original interview here at inc.com] We loved it. Let us know if you did too.
