Testimonials From Past PPC Workshops

I flew from Japan just for this seminar, and it was worth every penny. I know there are many people who teach AdWords, but no one is as specific as he is, and he doesn’t mind sharing the information with you. When it comes to AdWords, he is the one to listen to.

Brad I wanted to write and thank you again. My staff and I came away with a lot of very useful information. Having been a long time user, I thought I understood AdWords, Analytics and landing pages well. I wasn’t even close to the level of what I know now. I should have done this long ago. If the ideas running through my head were gears in a machine there would be smoke coming from them. Truly eye opening.

– Jay Papineau, IT Manager – Northwest Clinical Research Center

The seminar was probably worth far more than 10 times the cost. I was astounded to see how much useful information Brad was able to deliver in one day. I’m a little overwhelmed just thinking about where to start with all the positive changes I can now make with our internet marketing.

I found the Adwords seminars to be invaluable to our ongoing and future success with our Google ad campaigns. After the two days, I was left with a limitless supply of ideas and methods of marketing our business to the masses on the internet. We were also given key indicators of success, which is very helpful. I also found Brad to be very personable and happy to answer the few questions that were unique from my perspective. I highly recommend this seminar for any sized business that is looking to expand into the world of internet marketing!
