I have worked at nonprofits as a volunteer, employee, board member, and consultant. I am currently on the board of Friends of the Multnomah County Library and am the chair of the marketing committee for them. Nonprofit marketing is my area of expertise.
Specifically, I help nonprofits with Google Grants. Google Grants is truly incredible. If you’re unfamiliar, I strongly encourage you to read more details about the Google Grants program.
Certified Google Partner
I am a certified Google Partner, which is a designation that comes directly from Google. The Google Partner badge is attributed to agencies based on client retention, total ad spend, and passing skills exams in the most recent year. In their own words:
“The Google Partner badge shows that specific Partners have passed Google Ads product certification exams and are up to date with the latest product knowledge. In other words, they earned it.”
Better Business Bureau
Rasko Digital Marketing is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business.
If you’d like to meet me in person, I will be a guest speaker at Northwest Land Camp in June 2019. My presentation will be a beginners overview and that will cover what you need to know to get started.
In March of 2019, I was a guest speaker on the topic of Google Grants at the Nonprofit Technology Conference. This conference had 2,200 attendees from 14 different countries. My co-presenter is Michelle Hurtado, Head of the Ad Grants department at Google.
In addition to working directly with nonprofits, I regularly write articles advising nonprofits on their accounts, many of which you can find on this site. I am trusted by NTEN (“Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network”) to be a monthly contributor on the topic of Google Grants for their Connect Blog. These articles are included in their Connect Email Newsletter that goes out to 25,000 subscribers.
In March of 2019, I was interviewed by Tony Martignetti for Nonprofit Radio.
In November of 2018, I was interviewed by Steve Boland for Next in Nonprofits.
Search Engine Marketers of Portland
I am a member of Search Engine Marketers of Portland and regularly attend events to stay current on the quickly changing digital marketing landscape. In May of 2017, I was selected as their member of the month.
