    SO I need some help. I am working on a city council race in Austin, Texas. We are spending $20 a day on google adwords and I am wanting to use it to its full potential. The consultants we were having do this for us before are no longer with the campaign, so now I am tasked with getting it back up and running.

    So what do I need to know to make this work?

    I don't think Google adwords are that good for local stuff. Wouldn't you be better off spending that $20/day on campaign signs?

    then get a few more :p

    I mean think about it....do you know what are the chances of you finding someone who lives in your city to click on the thing? I mean even on the most hardcore political site you'll have maybe 1 person in your city on the whole site.

    I think your better option would be to target Facebook. Target it by town for location and for age target young kids. Then write some bullshit like "Councilman blahblah supports lowering the minimum drinking age to 18" You know pick a position that kids might support.

    Chances are you''ll get many more votes that way than by targeting with Google. Chances are 90% of the clicks you get are from sites whose sole goal is to get you to click a google ad to leave the site.
