Outstanding news for marketers of all kinds, Google has quietly opened up Google Ad Planner to everyone, or at least, that is what it seems. Go to google.com/adplanner and give it a try, you should be able to sign in with your Google Account and agree to the terms of service and then start using this incredibly robust and powerful tool.
Google launched Ad Planner in June 2008 as an invite only program. I was privileged to be included in this release and I provided detailed screen captures of Ad Planner in action. Take a quick look, the data is amazing.
Like I said above, all marketers, including search marketers, print marketers, water marketers :) need to check this out.
Again, go to google.com/adplanner now and give it a try.

Update: It has been open since November. I am sorry, I should have known this, we blogged it at Search Engine Land.
