We like to educate so lets talk and see if there is merit in Google Adwords for you.
When you search on google for a product or service, advertisers pay to show their ads to you. The best part is they only pay if you click on their advert. If you don't click on their advert, they showed it to you for free. WOOHOO some free branding.
That's why it's called Pay Per Click or PPC. Adwords is the simplest form of PPC. Others include re-marketing, Facebook ads, video ads.
Advertisers like you can laser target their customers by showing their ads only to people from a certain geographic area and who searched using a particular keyword.
This is powerful as you can target people with commercial intent in your area. The intention to buy combined with quality and emotive information on your web site delivers leads and drives up sales.
With good Google Adwords management, your cost per acquisition drops delivering you more customers at lower cost per sale.
