What to Expect from Google Adwords

Google Grants awards an advertising grant within Google Adwords.

Adwords is an online self-managed advertising program.

Your organization will build its own Adwords account by creating and monitoring text ads that run on Google.

You create ads and choose keywords, which are words or phrases related to your organization.

When people search on Google using one of your keywords, your

ad may appear next to the search results and people can click on your ad and go to your website.

Benefits of Google Adwords

As a Google Grants recipient, you will be able to participate in Adwords,

receiving up to $10,000 per month in free advertising.

However, you should be aware of a few important budget constraints

on your advertising campaign:

The maximum cost-per-click (CPC) that a Google Grantee is able to

choose is $1.00 and some keywords may not be available to you at

this amount.

Your organization will not actually be charged for each click on your ads.

This cost-per-click (CPC) is simply the bid for your keyword in the

Adwords auction.

Google grants

Your monthly "ad spend" will be capped at $10,000.

Again note that you will not be charged for clicks on your ads,

up to $10,000 per month.

The "ad spend" is simply how much your organization would have paid

if you were not receiving the Google Grant; it is essentially

the value of the grant.

Keep in mind that some organizations may have solid

Adwords campaigns, but not accrue close to $10,000 per month

in their account.

The ad spend for each organization will vary based on your

organization's reach / audience (local versus international),

area of focus (rare diseases versus breast cancer), and other factors.
