    Hello, I am a US Peace Corps Volunteer at a The Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University in the Philippines. Sorry, I can't post a www yet.

    I am an IT teacher here and have been working to improve our web presence, website and distance learning system.
    One of the major requests from the other IT professors is a lack of linkages to foreign institutions. As we are a provincial university, it is hard for us to compete and get noticed amid the large schools in the capital/private schools.

    I have been thinking that using AdWords, we can try to advertise ourselves and hopefully get noticed more.
    The problem is $$$; trying to get advertising money from the admin is near impossible and the web-host we signed up with won't give us a credit.
    I see that lots of people give our vouchers to other members and was hoping someone might share a voucher with me so I can test my idea out.
    If it's successful I can take the results to the admin when asking for a little budget.

    Thanks, D

    PS If you have other ideas, I'd be interested in hearing them too.

    To be honest man, a voucher won't get you enough money to really make a difference. Vouchers are just tools that ad networks use to get you in the door and start getting familiar with their platform.


    I'm positive that can give you a $100 adwords voucher with no problems though. My idea is that you work on building a campaign, and show some potential to your admin so that you can get more money to invest.

    I guess I should clarify... I don't expect $100 to get any actually linkages set up but, what I was hoping for is that I'll get some statistics from it so I can target it better.

    Then hopefully I can take the data and clicks info to places like the Rotary club, the admin, and alumni for more money to keep it going.

    If you have a one to share, plz msg me and we'll see what happens :)

    Bro, baling lisuda ng imong gipangita kay nangita kag specific nga users to visit and link your site. The best nimong buhaton ana is to submit your website's url to school and university directories.

    if g-plan kag gamit ug adwords, perhaps you need a LOT of it jud. Why? Ingon ani bro, make multiple sites and take a review of your university then allow a big banner or link to your site then promote all of those sites via adwords.


    *the best thing to do is to submit your url to school/university directories and make tons of site review for your site and promote those reviews via adwords. You can have at least 3 $100 adwords coupon for $5 from some folks here. :)

    Hummm seguro, pero I have a lot of other work too... this way sounds cheaper/more effective in the long run but a lot more work?
    thx for the idea

    I would suggest utilizing Facebook advertising first; it tends to be cheaper and more targeted, but if you want to stay with Adwords I suggest just doing your research on BHW and looking through the Member Downloads section for guides.
