Getting Your Google Ads Promo Code

In order to receive a Google Ads Free Promo code I’d recommend using Google My Business. Whenever setting up a new GMB account you will receive a mailer with a code to first verify the account. This postcard will be mailed to your business address. Use that code to verify your new GMB account. Within the next 1-2 months you will then receive another postcard from Google that has your new promo code for Google Ads. They send this code to incentivize newer businesses to advertise with Google.

Once you receive that mail you will find the promotional code for Google Ads within the mailer. Save this mail so you can use that code when you log back online into your acccount.

After receiving and saving your new Google Ads promotional voucher you’ll want to log into your new GMB account. Once logged in you will navigate to the home page and go to the section labels “Ads or Google Ads”. This will open up a new page where you can start setting up a basic Google Ads account.

This local GMB Google Ads account is different and easier than the traditional Google Ads dashboard which allows for more options, targeting and complexity. If you are just starting out with Google Ads then I’d recommend using this smart local campaign previously known as Express Ads.

To set up this account, you will just walk through the settings such as business name, location, phone number, and more. From there you can define your geographic targeting, keyword themes, add images, and more. This is basically setting your parameters for ad targeting. People will see these local ads in Google Search and Google Maps.

From there you can define your budget and set up your billing. When creating your billing account you’ll need a credit or debit card, business address, and billing address. On this page is where you’ll also see you can add the promo code. Make sure to add that voucher code exactly and hit apply. Once you spend your first amount up to that credit budget then you’ll be credited back to your account. I’d recommend keeping an eye on this and turning the ads off if they are not working, OR you can edit the ads and budget and keep running ads. Keep in mind, this WILL start charging your card and will cost money.
