Google gives nonprofit organizations $10,000 per month in free advertising through its Google Ad Grants program. And unlike most grants, Google’s has an extremely quick application process and is very easy to get. So why do so few nonprofits participate in Google Ad Grants, and why do existing grantees struggle so much with maximizing its value to grow their organization? What’s the catch?
The catch is this: Google Ad Grants is very difficult to administer unless you have extensive knowledge of and expertise with the Google Adwords program. Having $10,000 to spend is easy; actually spending it is, in fact, very difficult. And because Google provides very little support or guidance on how to spend the money, the average nonprofit grantee is only able to use a few hundred dollars of their $10,000 allotment each month.
But not anymore. The Google Ad Grants Playbook changes all of that. Josh Barsch and Steve Isaacs of StraightForward Interactive have managed over 100 Google Ad Grants accounts over the past decade for charities worldwide and have cracked the code on how to extract the full value of Google Ad Grants for their clients.
