View Full Version : If the campaign won't run ads, we should get our donations back and run our own.

I would like to see at least one ad. I mean, wtf? I'd like to at least get SOME reassurance that the campaign is doing SOMETHING. So, far, I've not seen much.

They are running ads noob. Good luck getting your donation back. You're a waste of life and a waste of bandwidth and you should probably leave this forum forever.

Where is the money being spent then? I saw numbers from about a week ago that said the campaign had something like 7 - 8 million on hand. They have raised over 30, right?

Also, they are running ads in states where they think they can do well, correct? I've read news reports of the campaign running ads in many Super Tuesday states where they felt they had a shot at placing well.

The real problem is that we have to pay for every minute of exposure we get, wheras other candidates get hundreds of millions of worth of free advertising.

they are running some ads, but HQ seems to like to spend more money on mailers then TV ads. But I don't blame HQ for "poor" results, it's the media(blackout), stupid!

If you want to see an ad go to Youtube.

There are 300 million people in the USA. Do you have any idea how much it would cost to show everyone one ad? Just one?

Marketing is about focus and Return on Investment.
