Late 2010 Google launched a new program called Google Engage. The program was designed to provide digital agencies and freelancers with training and incentives to help small to medium sized businesses succeed online in the way of online advertising – namely Google AdWords.
I applied for the program in November and got accepted. I am yet to start, but come tomorrow I would have completed my first training video and I’ll be on my way to becoming a Google Certified Individual.
This will allow me to provide AdWords services and consulting to my clients, which goes hand in hand with the other web services I am able to offer clients. The program also gives me 20 $75 AdWords to get my new clients kick started in online advertising. I’ll let you know once I have completed the program and maybe I can give you some advice in getting your business kick started online.
