      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

I have a client who is a non-profit organization. They send doctors and medicine to places where there isnt any. Obviously one of there prime objectives is to raise funds.

 

I was wondering if anyone has done or has heard of anyone doing PPC to raise money for charity and how successfully it was?

Yay, I love doing good things <_<

 

There are two things where Google (*) can help here:

 

1. Google Grants - "Google Grant recipients use their award of free AdWords advertising on Google.com to raise awareness and increase traffic." Free PPC sounds good, right?

 

2. Google Checkout for Non-Profits - "Google Checkout for Non-Profits is a fast, convenient donation process that helps you attract more donors and increase online giving to your organization – and you can use it to process donations by charging credit or debit cards for free until 2009."

 

Other companies possibly have similar systems and of course what you achieve with these tools depends a lot on the usual work involved with attracting relevant traffic and getting it to convert.

(*) I hope this isn't too much "advertising" -- I wasn't aware of these programs before I joined Google but I think they're good enough to mention here.

Thank you! I didn't know Google Grants existed, either.

 

This will come in handy. :)

We have worked with two Irish charities and both were granted a PPC "budget" with AdWords through Google Grants. It was a right pain to go through the process though.

 

PM me if you would like any further specific info.

One of my clients is a non-profit. However, they sell products on their site. It's just that the profits from the sales go to the cause.

 

I've never read about Google Grants before. Interesting!
