  22. “A panama hat maker in Bolivia is now selling in 84 markets and has grown to 50 employees across Latin America using AdWords. The owner of a baby products store in Nigeria had such a response to her AdWords campaign that she literally ran out of stock. A butcher in Warsaw using AdWords saw that at Easter, one of the busiest times of the year, the queue of people who came to pick up their online orders was longer than the queue of those shopping in the store. Displaced by Hurricane Katrina, the founder of a fitness bootcamp was able to completely rebuild, and then grow, his customer base with AdWords when he returned to New Orleans and started over. Using AdWords to find new customers in the wake of the recession, a son helped his father turn around his ailing home security business, now the largest in El Paso. The first Thai AdWords customer, a third-generation tailor, has grown his business from 5,000 customers in 2002 to over 400,000 internationally today.” -Sergey Brin, 2010 Founders’ LetterMonday, October 10, 11
