Google AdWords

I know you all have seen the little ads that show up on the right hand side of your screen during Google search. Cool. Those ads are actually paid advertisements that use key words to exist. Making sense?

Here is a little break down: Companies (just a general independent variable) buy keywords and ad space. These ad spaces basically show up whenever the assigned keyword is typed into the search bar. It cost money, and the more money you spend, the more times your ad will show up. So I consider this a cool investment for businesses.

I tried to make an ad for my blog as part of a class assignment. It wasn’t hard to get the ad and keywords created, but as a broke college student, I only supplied 5 bucks to get it running. So I’m sure you can guess how many times it showed up during the search! LOL :-)

I bid on keyword like: Fashion, Trend, Music, Entertainment…you know, cool stuff :) And result wise was pretty cool. Here is a screen shot of my created ad. I suggest this kind of advertising because its not too expensive, and with the right keywords it can reach a heck of a lot of people.


Prof says “social networks are cool.”

This is a blog  for homework :-p So every now and again I have to deviate from fashion, music and entertainment. This stuff is still pretty cool though.

Like I said before, this is a New Media Driver’s License class, so of course we are dealing with all kinds of on-line communication tools.  I already had a Facebook (shocking, but I remember when facebook with brand new LOL), so check me out sometime.  We were asked to create a Twitter and LinkedIn account (check me out on there too) as well.

So Twitter is like a big ol’ status update. LOL. Nah its cool though, you can be random or informational. You can follow people and what they are “doing” too.

LinkedIn is like a more business savvy facebook. It connects you with all kinds of business people and companies. Similar to facebook, but more like “grown up” if you get my drift.

SO a few questions:

1.) How do you hope to use these social networks?n2314986_50290568_2184-copy

I hope to use these social networks to meet people, share information, receive information, and all that jazz :) I also hope to use certain social networks as a way to keep in contact with important and not so important people :-p

2.) What are your social media goals?

My social media goals are to have accounts with EVERY communication community on the Internet! SIKE…seriously my goals are to learn about new on-line media outlets, and how I can use them to add value to a business. I also want to effectively market myself for any ventures (business or pleasure) I may choose to pursue.
