Anyone experimented with google adwords?  I just set up an account - it's kind of tough to get a feel for what you're getting into but you can turn it off any time.  I set up an ad to link to my personal website when certain keywords are typed in a geographic location.  Seems interesting, but like most prospecting ideas, if it was as easy as sitting back and watching the leads roll in, it would have been widespread and done long ago.  Right???

I don't know why more people don't use this.

You can target to within a mile of your office, you can target any keyword you want and you can drum up a ton of business using it.

If you need any help let me know as I'm pretty good at it.

I would like to know more. But you have posted three times in 4 years? Can you give us a detailed explanation today in case it is a year before you come back again?

I have used Google Adwords when working in telecoms. System works, but from my experience only as a complimentary measure to traditional sales methods.

I write a lot of articles and would be interested in interviewing anyone that has been successful using Google Adwords.    

Please send me an email if you would like to be considered for some positive publicity!  --  [email protected]

GoogleAdwords are indeed great ways of more traffic. I have used it since i learned about it and its usefulness. It really helps to boost up traffic  to your site just as you want it to be.

Adwords and internet work. Problem is that many of the major B/D firms don't allow it - even though they do it badly themselves (chimpanzee logic).

You really have to understand the internet with search engine optimization, keyword research and split testing to gain a foothold. Otherwise you will piss your money into the wind.

I tried to do it.  I work for a major wirehouse and got shot down.  I used to run my own internet site and I know how effective adwords can be.

Sorry guys, I don't read the forums much, (as you can tell by my lack of posts).

Firms that don't allow it are really limiting themselves.


Keywords can be very expensive which is why geo targeting and going in a radius around your location works best.

You also need a system to follow up with your prospects.  If you just send them to your site and that's it, then you're not going to get any new clients.

I have used adword for around 2 years. You cannot drum up a ton of business with Adword. I have had 0 none contact from Adword. I spend around $100+ per month. Also I think the smallest radius to advertise from your office is 10 miles, not 1 mile.
