A Facebook Group for Philippines based Paid Search Marketing Professionals
The paid search marketing professionals in the Philippines has grown exponentially over the last few years. Though search engine optimization professionals outnumber the PPC guys probably at a 10:1 ratio the local community has been active. Philippines based PPC Managers have been hired by neighboring countries like Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand to manage some of their existing english language accounts. The community is a mix of inhouse managers handling a single account, BPO PPC managers handling accounts for a vendor, freelancers who source their clients either through referral or some remote job sites like Odesk, and private individuals who use ad networks to promote their own sites (affiliate, services etc).
Most of the paid search managers I have known already use Google Adwords (the 500 lb gorilla) and have working experience using 2nd tier networks such 7 search, direct cpv, linked in and more. Mobile paid search is still new to most.
