Add our own organizations funds beyond the $10,000 limit?

Hi, this may have already been addressed, but I couldn't find in the forums. We are consistently maxing out our $10,000 month limit. I understand Grantspro has now been suspended, so it's not possible to increase the monthly grant amount. Is there a way we can add our own funds to the account that would be tapped once the $10,000 has been used up? Thank you

Hi Scott, it's great to hear that you're getting full use of your Ad Grant!  There's no way to add funds to an Ad Grants account, but since it's working for you, you're welcome to open a standard paid account with AdWords.  There are a few options here, for example you could replicate the campaigns you have and set them up with ad scheduling so they don't overlap (https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2404244?co=ADWORDS.IsAWNCustomer%3Dfalse&hl=en) or you could separate out a campaign that works well for you so your paid account would give you more opportunity to be in the top spot.  Let us know what works for you!

Hi Scott,

 

If you are maxed, your maxed. However, this is now when it is best to optimize for conversions. If you have your analytics and conversion tracking dialed in, you can optimize and put more budget into the campaigns and ad groups that are driving more online revenue and impact for your org.

 

Also, if you want to bid real money on high quality keywords that in your google grant you have proven to have a positive ROI, you can setup a real money account.
