Overseas US military bases

Explorer ✭ ☆ ☆

Is there any way for me to target ads so that they are visible to United States military and families at overseas bases (with APO addresses)? Since I offer things by mail order, I can ship to these locations, but don't know how to get the word out without including entire countries where I don't otherwise ship.

Hello fnippy;

This is a nice question.

 

In AdWords, you cannot target US military bases (similar to target by zip codes). However, most of these locations are publicly known (e.g. in Europe, as part of NATO, Philippines, Japan...) You will find them by running a quick Google search.

 

However, note that in many countries, you can target only up to Geo-region level . You will not be able to narrow Geo-targeting to the level of the base Geo-location, or the nearest city/ town.

Hi fnippy,

 

There is no option to target specifically US millitary bases and all as Moshe pointed above.

You can target US by postal code level, Metro (or Nielsen® DMA®) level, city-level, region level and country level only.

 

More details about other countries is mentioned in this article.

 

Just a thought!
