    I don’t fully understand the use of Ad words. I work with Wonders of Winter a festival of lights in Waterloo park basically for the month of December. We are a non profit group. Is there a way Ad words would help us promote this volunteer, community event?

    • Hi Rob,

      Would be happy to chat with you about how you can use AdWords to drive awareness for Wonders of Winter. In it’s simplest form think of AdWords as a distribution channel with incredible reach and the ability to target users directly on numerous devices and in numerous channels.

      Google does indeed have a not-for-profit program. It can be complex to pass all of the criteria and applications to receive NFP funding credits for AdWords. Do you use any paid promotional channels at this time? Radio? Print? Television? Do you have a budget?

      Hope to hear from you soon!
      Best – Dan
