Here’s a trick to get you $450 in Google Adwords credits for a total investment of $229.
1) Sign up to be a GoDaddy Super Reseller . The cost is $229. If you scroll down on that page you’ll where it talks about the free google advertising credit. Once you sign up, you will receive $250 in Adwords credit by email.
2) Now after you sign-up for Godaddy’s reseller program, you get 1 free pro reseller account. Check your email and activate your reseller storefront. Next, you need to buy 1 reseller account using your super reseller link. (It costs you nothing when you check out since you get 1 free account with a reseller account). So basically, you are signing yourself up.
3) Once your reseller account is approved, you will get another $200 in Adwords credits.
4) Next, you need to open 2 different Adwords accounts and use one promo code per account. So basically, you have $450 in Adwords credits and the cost to you was $229. I don’t believe there’s a problem with having 2 Adwords accounts if they are in different markets, but I could be wrong. If you have 2 different credit cards that might also work, but consult with the Adwords TOS.
Here are some other offers:
Yahoo Search Marketing is offering a $25 credit for all new sign-ups.
Enhance Interactive (formally Ah-Ha) generally sucks. Huge click fraud issues. But I think they are attempting to re-make themselves in the ppc market so they are worth giving a try again, if you haven’t already. Here’s a link to Enhance’s $25 in free ppc traffic offer.
Search123, like Enhance is one of the “7 dwarfs” of ppc search engines. They are one of the few ppc engines where you can still buy clicks at .05 cents. Deposit $50 and they will give you $20 in free credits .
