    how long to learn adwords

    I'm new to ad word's I tried it before but it didn't work out for me, after spending a bit of time, on a different
    method of online advertising, I'd like to give it another crack.

    I'm not sure employing a freelancer would give me effective results for my budget.

    I'm willing to put the time to train and the money. What I'd really like to know is how long to be effective with my local 5-10 radius business (I teach guitar)

    So how many hour's learning through Google resources?
    how many hours training elsewhere?
    how many hours practicing on my account.
    & how many hours researching blogs to stay current

    I know it's hard to pin down, but do I need 10/100/1000 to get my skills to competent standard

    2500 hours should do it. I have been doing PPC since 2002, Bing and Google certified and I am still learning. One of my guys has been doing PPC for less than a year though and he is excellent... amazing even.

    How long is a piece of string...

    I am learning Adwords too and wish there was an answer but like most IT related skills I imagine like the answer above, the goal posts will almost certainly be moving for ever and a day.

    Good luck
