The Challenge

Increased demand for food assistance

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a sharp increase in demand and search traffic for North Texas Food Bank. To help get people the food they need, we had to pivot our Google Grant strategy to come up with the most efficient and effective ways to get the most out of their monthly budget.

The Solution

Optimizing Grant spend for disaster relief

RKD contacted our representative at Google to gain additional funds for Grant accounts that were reaching their maximum spend due to the increase in search traffic. We also optimized the account by focusing our attention and efforts on well-performing campaigns. We started by developing new ad copy, adding keywords based on search-term reports that would yield high results and creating ad extensions that encourage people to donate or get help.

Breakthrough

Sharp rise in conversions

After NTFB received additional funds, the account saw a 1,514% increase in conversions year over year. Clicks rose 354% and impressions were up 268%. The brand and food bank campaigns that were optimized for disaster relief were a strong contributor to this success.
