I love Google products and believe they can be a great asset to every ministry!
So maybe Google + hasn’t worked out as planned, but that doesn’t mean that Google hasn’t developed other products that can greatly benefit your ministry. Whether it’s as basic as GMail or Google search or maybe more complex like Google Analytics or Google Alerts. In the coming weeks I will be highlighting several Google products that we use on a regular basis with CBC Online.
The biggest resource that seems to have somehow flown under the radar is Google for NonProfits. Originally this program was closed to religious organizations, but recently Google opened it up to all NonProfits (including churches). There are many benefits to this program, but the big appeal is that they give you $10,000/month in free Adwords credits.
Yes, that is $10,000/month or $120,000/year in FREE advertising with Google!
Does it seem too good to be true? It’s not. I’m using both the YouTube channel and Adwords accounts at no cost yet seeing great ministry impact every day! Apply now and start taking advantage of this incredible opportunity that Google has made available to your ministry or nonprofit.
One last thing to throw in. If you use the alloted $10,000/month effectively you can apply to become a GrantsPro user and Google will up your budget to $48,000/month. That is half of a million dollars a year in FREE advertising! Could that help your ministry or church?
I would love to hear comments from anyone already taking advantage of this program and what your experience has been or any questions that you might have regarding this program. If anyone has any reasons not to use this program I would love to hear your thoughts as well.
