Welcome to this episode of the Pro Church Marketing Podcast. I'm your host, Jono Long, and today I'm sharing my insights into the Google Ad Grants program and why your church or nonprofit should apply now if you want to be ready for the back-to-school season in August and September.
The grant offers up to $10,000 per month in free Google ads, enabling your organization to reach people in your community by targeting keywords like "church near me" or "youth ministry." But managing these ads requires expertise because of Google's compliance guidelines and learning phase.
I'll guide you through the application process and explain why it's essential to start early. I also provide practical advice on structuring your campaigns, such as creating multiple ad groups and using specific keywords to maximize the grant's potential.
Join me for a free workshop on May 21st for a comprehensive guide to applying for and utilizing the grant effectively. Or, if you'd rather have some direct help, I'll share details on a campaign setup service that can get you up and running with one campaign for a one-time fee.
