    Course Testimonial Quote Icon

    “My Return-on-Ad-Spend (ROAS) has increased by 40% since I’ve implemented the learnings from Xuanbin’s class, steadily increasing from 508% to 702% within 4 months. Before coming to Xuanbin’s class, I knew very little about what I was doing and left it mostly to guesswork. Within the 2 days in class, I was able to identify the next steps I needed to take as he helped built a strong foundational understanding of how Google Ads works. I would highly recommend this course to Business Owners who are keen to improve their business results!”

    Ben Foo, Founder, TheFirstFruits.com

    “The insights I’ve gained are immensely helpful, and I’m already seeing better results and increased confidence in managing my Google Ads campaigns. Despite having basic Google Ads knowledge and having SEO experience prior, I had many unanswered questions. The trainer’s (Xuanbin) rich experience and industry insider best practices were invaluable as we explored all aspects of campaign creation and optimisation. I also received tailored advice for my campaign and account settings live over Zoom during one of their Post-Training Consultations!”

    Course Testimonial Quote Icon
    “Equinet Academy’s Google Ads Fundamentals course is excellent. I can’t really fault it for anything. To me, the course’s main selling points are that it is taught by a competent and experienced Google Ads professional, and its hands-on approach to teaching Google Ads. I really appreciated how we had many opportunities to try things out on our own, and then receive helpful feedback on the spot.”

    “I love the hands-on approach setting up the Ad Campaigns step by step. One of the important highlights of the course was on how to analyse the competitive metrics and potential profitability of the keywords. This was extremely useful because it prevented me from wasting unnecessary budget on keywords that were not likely to convert, and instead focus on keywords that were more likely to convert.”

    Gaynor Lim, Propnex
