If half the global population were online at any given time, what do you think the odds are that someone is searching for your service or website right now? It is hard to fathom, understandably,  but you might be surprised at the number of people who are searching Google right now for exactly what you have to offer. So, that being said, let's make sure they can easily find you!

With your Gator account, you can now find new customers and expand your reach with a $100 in Google Ads credit.

    Pro Tip: A privacy policy is a requirement for you to redeem your Google Ad credits but is generally a good idea for any publicly accessible website given the current political climate we live in today. For help with this, we recommend researching online the nature and intent of these policies as well as how to generate one.
  5. Once you add your policy, hit Next and you will see a confirmation of your code.

Create your first Google AdWords Campaign and enter your billing information as needed.

Important: At the bottom of the billing page is an Introductory Offer field. Enter your promo code there.

The funds from your promo code will become available once you have spent a total of $25.00 toward Google Adwords.

Pro Tip: Carefully read Google AdWord's Terms and Conditions to understand how to qualify for your free ad credits fully. You can also contact Google AdWords at (866)-246-6453 and ask for more information.
