Maximize Google Grants for Non-Profits


Published on

Google Grants provides $10,000 monthly free advertising to qualifying 501(c)3 non profit organizations. It is easy to apply for the grant, but there is a catch - you can only bid on phrases that cost $1 CPC or less.

This presentation will describe some of the strategy and techniques which will help you to get the most out of your Google Grant and qualify for an extension to $40,000 monthly.

Presented by Eric Werner of Northridge Interactive at the 2009 Bridge to Integrated Marketing and Fundraising Conference.
