Google will partner with CcHub, M-Lab and iHub to organise monetisation workshops across Africa


Businesses, as a rule, exist to make a profit. Internet startup companies typically generate revenue from product (or service) sales, subscriptions or paid advertising. Search and advertising behemoth, Google is planning a series of educational workshops, about web and mobile app monetisation best practices and business strategies.

The training sessions will focus on Google’s monetisation suite: AdSense, DoubleClick for Publishers, AdMob and Google Analytics. Topics include:

  • How to improve your ad placements, optimal ad sizes
  • How to increase the coverage.

  • How to evolve with your mobile users.
