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

We have a Google Ad grant and had paid a company to get it set up and running last fall. Since our contract ended we haven't had the time or necessary training to maintain it ourselves so I'm hoping someone can help us refresh it and show us how to use AdWords.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a Google AdWords grant, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the inital ads set up, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,486 , allowing us to provide free IT workforce training to eight people who face barriers to employment.

MCFS has undergone major transition over the past 12 months and we want people to know about the new services we now offer to the community. We recently moved to a new location that allows us to better serve the community, makes it easier for people to engage with us and has allowed us to build out a volunteer program, which we would like to promote.
