AdWords Community Rising Stars

Prior to joining the Top Contributor Program, most Top Contributors start as Rising Stars. Just like Top Contributors, Rising Stars are volunteers who have a positive attitude, share their product knowledge with other users, and participate in the community consistently. Having a Rising Star title means that your AdWords Community profile will have a special Rising Star badge attached to it, which allows other users and Top Contributors in the community to recognize you as a frequent and valuable member.

From the first day that I learned of the community, I've found myself amongst the various pages where there is always something new and interesting to learn. I feel that from reading and taking part in forum conversations, all AdWords users can boost their knowledge and skills. It's a great pleasure to be able to join in, I enjoy posting and offering assistance where I can.

I have been a part of this Community, ever since I joined SMG Convonix back in 2008. And through the years this platform has helped me learn, grow, contribute and share solutions and ideas beyond boundaries and businesses. The sheer number of people ready to help, trust and try solutions made it not only a great group but also a whiteboard for individuals such as me to gain multiple perspectives and approaches to solve problems that could be faced by many through the AdWords Community.

With a formal background in Psychology, Philosophy and Statistics, the world of paid media instantly appealed to me when I stumbled across it. The Google AdWords platform was my first introduction to paid media and has remained my preferred platform from the beginning. Understanding how it all works and really getting into the numbers of accounts is what I love to do.
