What’s the Koios Summer Search Marketing Giveaway?
It’s summertime, and that means that your community is looking for things to do. Koios helps libraries show up online, and this summer we want to help you get the word out about summer reading, book clubs, concerts, and more. To do that, we’re giving away $2500 in search engine marketing from now until July 4th.
What do I win?
Have you ever wanted to see your great program at the top of search results? Ten libraries will receive a prize pack of Google marketing worth $250: that’s enough to have your program seen by over 2,000 interested residents!
How does it work?
You choose a program or service to promote
Koios creates a Google search campaign for it
Residents see it in relevant search results for 2-4 weeks
You get new library fans for free!
