  • Google supports startups in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in marketing - Apr 13, 2017

    The new platform “Google Marketing Solutions for Startups” aims to help new companies with their marketing strategy and AdWords campaign. Over the centralized platform startup companies can get in touch with Google marketing experts for assistance in setting goals, developing a marketing plan and constantly evaluating the marketing strategy. With free resources and online tools Google wants to help beginning companies to reach the right target group at the right moment and increase their online sales. Furthermore, account strategists offer support for the implementation of Google AdWords campaigns as well as monitoring and optimizing them. The peer-to-peer money transfer service TranferWise, which was launched in 2011, says: "AdWords helps us communicate quickly with potential customers. Its geographic targeting has allowed us to expand our global reach rapidly and efficiently. AdWords has helped us establish ourselves as pioneers in the financial services sector." Interested startups of all sizes can register for the project on g.co/marketingforstartups from now on. “We also started as a startup, in 1998”, a Google representative states. “But in the beginning, many startups are faced with enormous challenges: they have to set up business processes, win new customers and increase the awareness of their company or their product.” Other Google offers for newly established companies include the programmes “Google Cloud Platform for Startups”, “Google for Entrepreneurs” and “Google Developers Launchpad”.
