In the golden days of newspapers many local newspapers had church pages which allowed churches to reach the community with service times and special events. Many local papers still offer this feature but with subscriptions falling the reach has dwindled. Facebook Ads offer a similar solution for churches who want to reach their local community.

A February 2018 Shopaholics report confirms the decrease in website traffic from Facebook that social media marketers have experienced over the last year. From the second quarter of 2016 to the second quarter of 2017, referral traffic from Facebook to other websites decreased by 12.7%. Responsibility for this shift can be shared by Facebook's algorithm changes and Facebook users who are spending less time on the site and are viewing more videos.

One of my goals this year is to read one business book every month. My selections so far have centered a lot around culture. I’m also listening to a lot of podcasts and again the topic always comes back to culture. We often think about the culture of a business in relation to a large corporation. Creating an effective company culture is easier, however, before you scale to the thousands of employees spread all over the globe.

Earlier this summer, Winn-Dixie lost a lawsuit filed against it by Juan Carlos Gil. Gil, a blind Winn-Dixie customer, sued the grocery store because he could not use the Winn-Dixie website to search for coupons or refill his prescriptions. Gil has filed over 70 similar lawsuits alleging company websites violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Judge Robert Scola, of the Southern District of Florida ruled in favor of Gil because the Winn-Dixie website is so integrated with its physical stores that the website was also subject to ADA compliance.

Momentum Consulting grew out of a recognition that small and medium sized businesses often advertised haphazardly, throwing money at ads when their ad reps dropped in to see them with a great deal. Often these one-time deals left business owners with a sour taste because they saw little as a result of their one-time ad spend.

We wanted to offer business owners and now non profits the option of creating an actual strategy to use their advertising budget to drive sales. In this way, digital advertising is much like traditional advertising. It’s easy to boost a post on social media without giving a lot of thought to what you want to receive in return.

On social media, non profits are viewed the same as businesses. Each organization needs a professional page which comes with restrictions on how often organic posts are viewed by followers. Google treats non profit websites the same as business websites showing them in organic search results based on a complex algorithm of keywords, quality of traffic and content.

So how does a non profit decide where to spend their digital advertising budget?
