I received a voucher from Google to test out Adwords. Has anybody used this type of offer? What if any problems happened, and did the results make the effort worthwhile?

You get x free to spend on some pay per click. In that sense it's a pretty risk free chance to dip your toe into the water of PPC. Suffice to say the money can go fairly quickly if you don't use it wisely though.

Have you any experience of the results yourself? and what should I avoid doing?

I suppose the first thing to do is make sure you set your budget so you don't go over the voucher amount.

Then do some keyword analysis. Make those as detailed as possible. Craft as many ads as you can (make ads for as few keywords as you have time for), then put work into your landing page.

How did your trial go? I use AdWords reguarly and it can really help bring traffic to a site and increase conversions.

The landing page has a small amount of text , images and a Flash window. Would I get better results from a page with mainly text?

Your quality score would be better, which would result in cheaper clicks.

I used an Adwords voucher when I started my Adwords business account and it was pretty much free money in that the 50 voucher very much saved me 50. Straight saving.
There's not really any catch accept needs to be a new account setup. Just try and make sure you understand how best to use Adwords to make the most of the money to get the best results.
