What will this person do?
The Adwords expert will review your site’s content and organisation goals. They will set up your Google grant and Google Ads account and write and maintain a series of campaigns (or adverts) based on your keywords, site content and goals.
Who needs this?
Anyone who wants to maximise the effectiveness of their Google Adwords grant to increase traffic to their website.
Who is involved?
The Adwords volunteer should be supported by a member of the digital or marketing teams, or the CEO. The volunteer will need help getting to know your organisation and your goals. They will need access to your Google Adwords and Google Analytics accounts (if you have these set up) as well as an understanding of your target audience.
How long will it take?
Initially this will take roughly 15 hours from the volunteer to set up, with the charity needing to help for about 3-5 hours (onboarding the volunteer and helping to draw up keywords and target pages).
On an ongoing basis, the volunteer will need about 1 hour a week to maintain the account and report back on progress. The charity contact should set aside about 1-2 hours a month to review the monthly report and discuss strategies for improvements with the volunteer.
