I will admit it has been a long time since I spent time in the adwords area, but our company has been moving into a new area. We are using callers to set up demos of our product right now, and I have building several site's and content to develop traffic for web leads. The sites are coming along well and bringing in some good leads.

I have approached our CEO to look at the % web leads clients we have closed to the % leads generated by the callers to close. This report is being prepared and I already have a good idea the web leads have a much higher % in closing. So with that said the reason for the question.

Has anybody been to one these adwords seminars and can give me a positive review or just say it was worth the time and expense?

I STILL go to any AdWords seminars that come close to me (and not enough do) and consider it money well spent. And I'm not exactly a newbie.

- You always learn something you didn't know. Always. Because the course instructors usually have tips and anecdotes from their own experiences that you won't hear anywhere else.

- Even if you stock up on all the best AdWords books, at the rate Google changes things, the seminar is the best way to get the most current information.

- It's a great way to pick up new strategies - specially if you work in-house and with one company or site - you might find something someone else is doing could be modified to apply to you

- Face it, Google support being what it is, it might be the only chance you get to have some burning questions answered. Obviously it won't be specific to your account, but if you want to know in a general sense why or why not something is or isn't happening, this is the time to ask it. Write up a list before you go.

- If you're in-house, this won't apply to you, but I never got more offers of client work than when I went to a seminar. Handed out every business card I had and when I gave some one my email address an entire row wrote it down. Because I asked advanced questions, and they were end users who realized I was already way ahead of them.

- Great networking opportunity (if you're into that)

Can't stress enough, excellent bang for the buck.

Thanks net for the info. Being semi out of this for some time I felt it would be worth the expense.
