Are you advertising your business online? People are searching for it on Google… but are you there?
South Africans rack up more than 2 million searches on Google every day. And that doesn’t even begin to factor in the number of foreign Google searches made by potential customers who are searching for accommodation, activities and sites in your area.
Imagine what reaching these people could do for you!
That’s where Google AdWords comes in.
Google is currently offering free Google AdWords coupons to the value of R400 each – click here to apply for yours.

Official Google AdWords Seminars
The Rebellion, a Cape Town based online agency founded by ex-Googlers, has partnered with Google South Africa to create and offer basic courses that’ll teach you how to advertise your business online.
No complicated technological jargon, no annoying sales talk – just simple, clear and transparent instruction to give you a better understanding of various available, online, traffic-generating channels – and to teach you more about Google AdWords so that you can use it to your benefit, control your own costs and measure your returns.
And the course fee includes a free R750 coupon to kick-start your advertising.
“The Rebellion is passionate about helping South African businesses to thrive, and we can’t help but see many missed advertising opportunities for businesses in the travel and tourism industry,” said owner and founder of The Rebellion, Ryan Kitching.
“We want to help you tell people about your quaint B&Bs in the Karoo, your campsites in the Garden Route, your historical hikes in the Drakensberg, and your trendy restaurants in Soweto.
“We want to help you get people through your doors.”
The Rebellion is currently running courses in Cape Town (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and Johannesburg (Wednesdays from September 7th) at a cost of only R750 per session. (“Don’t despair Durbs and PE – if we get enough enquiries, we’ll run courses for you, too!” said Ryan).
Each training session is three and a half hours in length, and each participant receives a free R750 AdWords coupon as well as a free Google educational pack with tips on how to improve your website and how to use the more advanced targeting and measuring tools.
“We want to open this opportunity up to as many people as possible so we’re offering a discounted rate for people who sign up in a group of 4 – you only have to pay for 3 people!” said Ryan.
