Funding Your PPC Account

Updated on September 11, 2012

Advertising networks such as Google AdWords and Microsoft AdCenter know that you need to spend some money before you will see a positive return with their networks. Because of this they offer advertising credits or “vouchers” to offset your startup costs.

This is great news to anyone looking to break into PPC. Vouchers give you an opportunity to try out a PPC network without spending any of your own money up front.

A $100 ad budget can go a long way towards marking your first sale and in many cases will be all you need.

I’ve provided a link below for a list of current AdCenter Voucher providers on sorted by rating:

Note: You can only apply ad vouchers to new accounts.

I know that many people get hung up on applying vouchers so I’ve decided to include step-by-step instructions outlining the process.

First, you will need to add a valid payment method to your account by signing into AdCenter and clicking on Accounts & Billing and then clicking Payment Methods.

From here you will select either Add Card or Add PayPal depending on the payment method you prefer. Enter your payment method and click save if you haven’t already done so.

Now it’s time to add the voucher, click on Accounts & Billing once again and then Payment Methods. This time you will want to click on the Add Coupon link. Enter your coupon code and click Redeem.

That’s all there is to it!

Here is how you verify that your voucher was successfully applied:

1. Click the Accounts & Billing page.

2. Click the Billing tab.

3. In the Account drop-down list, select your account.

4. In the Show activity for drop-down list, select a time period, and then click Go.

You should see your voucher applied to your balance in parenthesis like so: ($100). Now it’s time to turn that balance into cash.
