    Hello!
    I've been a part of this forum for quite some time and have learnt a lot here! I even have a Instagram journey thread in the 'My Journey Section.'

    My team of 6 members and I are going to participate in the recent GOMC challenge (You can google it) organized by Google. Basically, Google's competition will give our team 250$ free advertising credit and we can promote a business/non-profit for free on adwords to gain experience. We are first year CSE students and we are doing this to gain real world experience.
    Since many of you use Adwords for your business here, we were hoping to gain some knowledge which we could implement further.

    We have approached some startups and organizations to partner up with and have got some positive responses but we are still considering our options.

    If any of you have or know about a charity/business/startup who has a good, professional website and is for a particular cause - we would love to some suggestions. The only criteria is that the business should NOT have used Adwords advertising within the last 6 months. We would love to work with someone who has a particular cause, for example helping students to advance their careers, pet care etc but commercial businesses would be great too.

    This will all be official and verified by Google, should we agree on a collaboration.


    I hope this is the appropriate section to post this. If this is against the forum rules in any form, I request the moderators to delete this thread.

    To gain real experience you'll need to turn these 250$ into 500$. Otherwise its not the type of experience you are looking for. :)

    Why not partner with some shop that will actually pay you after you increase its sales?

    Well, actually, the Google Marketing Challenge fund will be only $250. Any campaign that exceeds that amount will be disqualified.

    Also, any profit making view to this is not our objective. We just want to learn at that moment.
