I just ordered the Google Adwords kit, but now I am worried. Has anyone tried this? Does it really work or is it a scam? It says it was on the news, and on NBC, ABC, and others.
Those kits are a scam. The information you need is free for the taking at Google but the people selling the kits capitalize on a newbie's ignorance for profit.
I am a Google Advertiser, both AdWords and AdSense and I learned it all at Google.
Google has tutorials that teach you all you need to know to put an ad campaign together, but they don't write the ads for you. They can set you up with someone to write AdSense ads for you if you want to go that way.
I don't know what they charge or just how effective they are, but I do know that business is tough out there now, not near as easy as it was just 2 years ago.
Some advice about your Kit!
If you kept all the info from when you ordered it and still have all the info that came with it, you may be able to cancel the training and any supplemental programs that came with it. These ad on's can cost you up to $90 a month.
If you want help with Google, someone to aid you while you set things up, I do this type of work. There are ways to test your ads before you place them and free ways to advertise as well.
