The Google Online Marketing Challenge Contest

Google , World's No.1 Search engine has come out with Global Online Marketing Challenge which will start in February 2008 and is open to any higher education institution from any part of the world. The Google Online Marketing Challenge is a great opportunity for the students of Advertising , ecommerce, integrated marketing communication, management information systems, marketing
and new media technologies.

How to Enter the The Google Online Marketing Challenge :
Various groups of students from higher education institutes can take part in the competition. But it is professor who will register the groups. Students themselve can not register a team. Any professor at any Higher Education Institute can enter any class, graduate or undergraduate, regardless of discipline.

What is the The Google Online Marketing Challenge ?

1. Professors divide students into groups, who then receive free online advertising vouchers for Google AdWords worth US$200.

2. The groups or professors recruit a small-to-medium business, under 100 employees, who have a website but don't currently use AdWords.

3. Each group works with the business to set up an account and structure an online marketing campaign.

4. During a 3-week competition window, the groups optimize and refine their campaigns. They will need to submit two competition reports – one before they begin and one after the campaign has ended.

5. Entries are judged and winners chosen based on the success of their campaign and the quality of their reports.

students can compete over any three consecutive weeks between the 10th of February and the 24th of May 2008.

What are the awards and recognition for the winners?

The global winners and their professor will receive a trip to the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California to meet with the team that developed AdWords. In addition, regional winners and their professor will receive a trip to their local Google office.

All winning students, professors and institutions will receive recognition through the competition website and Google merchandise. All students will receive certificates of participation.
