Many advertisers have asked for opportunities to learn about AdWords in a hands-on setting. We’ve heard your feedback and we’re pleased to introduce AdWords Seminars for Success – full-day, in-person training seminars designed to help you get the most out of your AdWords account. Seminars will be offered in two tracks: beginner/intermediate, or intermediate/advanced. You can choose to attend a full-day session or the afternoon session only. If you sign up for a seminar 14 days in advance, we'll even throw in a $50 advertising credit for AdWords. (View the terms and conditions of advertising credits.)

These seminars are not run by Google itself, but instead by carefully selected search marketing professionals who have years of experience managing AdWords for their clients. (Both of our seminar leaders are also Qualified Individuals in the Google Advertising Professionals program.) We thought it’d be better this way, so that attendees can have an unbiased view on AdWords from the seminar leaders. Further, these seminars are not sales pitches – no one will be selling you anything so that you can focus on learning how to make AdWords work for your business.

The first round of AdWords Seminars will be offered in select cities: Los Angeles, San Mateo, Chicago, New York City, Miami, and Boston. If you don’t see your city listed, or regret having missed past seminars in L.A. or San Mateo, have no fear. Simply fill out this form to let us know that you’d like to be informed when additional sessions are offered.
