Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of Google AdWords ads
  • Training for staff on how to monitor performance and update Google AdWords ads going forward
  • Optional: Set up integration between Google AdWords and Google Analytics
Additional Details

Account already setup and ads running for 6 mos.
Need review of current structure + any recommended changes (Kidappolis app promotion)
Need ads created to promote online donations for LitLab

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Google Ads account setup, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have AdGrants enabled and ~70% of the budget utilized, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,486 , allowing us to increase the impact of kidappolis and raise enough money to potentially add a cross functional part time staff member

Our Ads account was setup by an outside consultancy in January of this year (for promoting our app kidappolis). We have transitioned to managing them in house and need a volunteer to review the current structure and recommend changes that need to be made, if any.

Additionally, we are not fully utilizing our budget at the moment, and would like a volunteer to create ads for promoting online fundraising for LitLab
