$100 of Free Advertising

September 15, 2010

Google is currently giving away $100 of free advertising thru their Google Adwords program.

Several weeks ago I signed The Fields Church up, and did $100 worth of advertising.

I did a local champaign that was only directed towards those within 18 miles of Mattoon.
For the $100 we had almost 40,000 ad impressions.
Impressions are the number of times the ad loaded on a page.
Our ads loaded on pages where Google search users searched for specific keywords. (ie Mattoon Church, Charleston Church, Kids Ministry, Youth Ministry, Kids Program, ect)
Also our ad appeared in YouTube videos and iOS apps.

The ads were linked to our website, and were clicked over 60 times.

So for $100, our name appeared 40,000 times, and drove 60 people to our website. Not bad.

How to get $100 free of Google Adwords

1. Sign up for Google Adwords.
2. Edit your billing preferences. Google Adwords charge $5 to your credit card to start your account. Then once they give you the $100, they give you back the $5.
3. After about 2 or 3 hours, your “Customer ID” will appear.

4. Once your Customer ID appears, call Google Adwords 1.800.848.9256 to get your $100 coupon code.
