What could your charity do with thousands of pounds worth of free advertising?
If you want to get your charity’s name in front of the public at a minimal cost, you can now take advantage of free Google advertising for non-profit organisations.
Online marketing can be an expensive business; ineffective pay-per-click (PPC) advertising can eat away at your marketing budget and deliver poor results.
But with Google Ad Grants, charitable organisations of all shapes and sizes around the world are benefitting from free advertising spend with Google. Here’s how your charity can get in on the action.
What is the Google Ad Grant?
To try and help worthwhile causes spread their message, Google are offering charities a grant to the value of US$10,000 to be used with their AdWords platform. AdWords is what makes paid ads appear at the top of their search engine when their users look up specific keywords and phrases.
When someone types in a keyword or phrase that is relevant to your charity, an ad containing a link to your organisation’s website appears in the search results. Google paid ads can make your charity visible to thousands of potential new supporters from the instant your campaign is set up, raising your profile and encouraging more donor engagement.
- Apply for the Google Ad Grant for Non-profits
- Have valid charity status.
- Agree to the company’s certification regarding discrimination and the use of donations.
- Have a current website that contains enough content to engage with donors.
Google is currently working with over 20,000 non-profit organisations globally, including many in the UK. Your charity could soon join them and benefit from valuable free advertising that gets your charity noticed. A free targeted ad campaign can increase your donations, encourage volunteering, reach spread the word in your local area or even go global.
To qualify, all you need to do is:
