Earlier this year, Google discontinued a very popular little addon that was bundled with GA360. It was a BigQuery voucher that was good for $500 per month in Google Cloud Platform costs, and enabled GA360 customers to do supercool things with their unsampled data.
It was also an incredibly useful way of getting started with using Cloud For Marketing, paving the way for predictive analytics and associated clever stuff.
Sadly, no more.
The voucher is no longer available, and even currently contracted GA360 customers that are benefitting from the free allowance (which, let's face it, with the cost of BigQuery is a frickin' lot) will find that the voucher will no longer be available come renewal time.
Sad face. But it's not all doom and gloom.
Data Runs Deep is shamelessly following the lead of the folks at Adswerve by offering a $500 voucher to our GA360 customers. That's $500 credit in Google Cloud Platform costs every month.
We're able to offer this by leveraging our position as a Google Analytics 360 Reseller, and a Google Cloud Platform Reseller, and we're delighted to be the second analytics consultancy on the planet to offer this.
We'll be rolling out this functionality to all our current serviced GA360 clients between now and renewal time, and any and all new GA360 customers that we start to work with in 2020 will automagically get their free $500/month BigQuery voucher. Hooray!
The only difference: it's $500 in Aussie dollars, not US dollars, but that's because exchange rates are a bloomin' nightmare, and hey -- it's still free.
