Awards: Student teams receive US$200 of free online advertising with Google AdWords and then work with local businesses to devise effective online marketing campaigns. Teams outline a strategy, run a campaign, assess their results and provide the business with recommendations to further develop their online marketing. Teams submit their reports and are judged by a panel of independent academics from all over the world.
Students divide into groups of 3-6, and then receive free online advertising vouchers for Google AdWords worth US$200. The groups recruit a small-to-medium business, under 100 employees, who has a website but doesnâ€™t currently use AdWords. Each group works with the business to set up an AdWords account and structure an effective online marketing campaign.
During a 3-week competition window, the groups optimize and refine their campaigns. They must submit two competition reports â€“ one before they begin and one after the campaign ends. Google and a panel of independent academics from all over the world select the winning teams based on the success of their campaign and the quality of their competition reports.
