Panel discussion with representatives from SearchGuru, Gapture, Locus-T and Optisage Technology 

The Google Partners event was once again spectacular and memorable, with over 50 guests present. The ambience definitely was impressive and quickly made you feel at home. The event was held in Aloft, KL Sentral at 6 p.m. on the 20th of November. The location was excellent, as it was very near our office. Upon arrival, I was invited to take a photo by the customary photographer at the photo booth. It was wonderful. As usual, there were props provided to make the pictures look more interesting. The props included a wine glass, a mustache, a hat and other attractive items. The photo taking sessions at Google events are really quite interesting. There was also a variety of food served that night, ranging from traditional Malay kuih, desserts, and small cakes to noodles, spring rolls and curry puffs.

Why Enhanced Campaigns?

If you have tried Google AdWords yourself, you should be no stranger to the Enhanced Campaign introduced early this year. In this day and age, the world is moving towards a techy edge where one device is no longer sufficient. Be it because we get bored of hogging one device from the minute we wake or whether we simply have trouble keeping our phones working after dying for the third time that day. We now wake up with our phone(s) in the morning, deliver a pitch with a tablet and a laptop to our clients at a meeting, and back on our phones on the train back, and finally on the good old desktop as soon as we step into that long awaited comfort zone called home.
