This may well have been doing the rounds among other publishers, so apologies if this is old hat to some, but today I received an email from Google offering me £75 of AdWords advertising.
I’m a UK blogger using Google Analytics. The email begins:
Dear Google Analytics User,
As a Google Analytics customer, we know that you care about the quality of traffic coming to your website, so we wanted to introduce you to Google AdWords. AdWords works by placing targeted advertising alongside Google’s search results.
To help you get started with AdWords we’ve sent you a voucher for £75 of Google AdWords advertising. The voucher is risk and commitment free, so start advertising today and drive more traffic to your website.
It then lays out the benefits of advertising with AdWords, and provides a personal voucher code. It’s only for those who don’t already have an AdWords account.
It’s not the first time Google has cross-promoted its products, and even £75 (about $140) is small change, particularly if it gets more people hooked on the system. It’s a good match, too, as Analytics and AdWords integrate well together.
Has anyone else received one of these invitations?
