Google Grant

Wondering what the right role is for your Grant?

Is Your Grant Strategy Working?

Ain’t free money grand?!  But then you need to decide how to spend it… Google is an inescapable, and largely positive, force for non-profits, but the Google Grant is a special beast. Historically non-profits have used the grant for traffic generation and the quality of said traffic was an after-thought—after all, we have to spend it all or they’ll take it away!

As of January 2018, the resources to effectively manage your Grant became even more taxed than before—the days of ‘set it and forget it’ are gone forever.  5%+ click-thru rates don’t happen automatically and most non-profits will benefit from Further’s strategic campaign setup, cross-management with paid search for the optimal outcomes, keyword research, and conversion optimization expertise.  It’s time to stop using the Grant as an after-thought or as your sole means of directed search.

These results are unbelievably satisfying.  The CPA's are insanely good!

We initially contracted Further for a search and Facebook pilot program and the results left no doubt that they would help us get to the next level.  We quickly expanded our scope with them.

We have an aggressive 5-year fundraising goal that is largely driven by digital. Further is the perfect partner to map out the strategy and help us achieve the results.

We tapped into Further’s expertise to help the IRC move to a digital-first prospecting program. In a short period of time we've added hundreds of thousands of new donors largely due to Further's strategic planning and advice.
