AdWords for video linking back to AdWords text advert

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

This is my first time attempting to use AdWords and i'm finding it extremely frustrating.

I follow the AdWords for video creation, get the campaign all set up and it requires a login.

As soon as I log in I get redirected to the page for creating a new text campaign and cannot get back to my AdWords for video campaign.

Please help!

Hi Emma and Axon,

 

There is a known issue with creating a new campaign and account by going through YouTube. Instead, you should go directly to the AdWords website and create an account there.

 

Let me know if you still have trouble!

Same for me, EXTREMELY frustrating. I don't want to advertise EXCEPT on youtube. The rest of it they can have.

If you wanted to advertise on Youtube, you can create text ads and/or video ads, but the system will always ask you to create text ads first as its default. You can pause these afterwards. Though here is the thing, if you are to create video ads to run on Youtube, it does not link directly to your website and rather, your Youtube channel. You can also create display ads, aka banner ads too. But you need to create at least one text ad to get the process going and you can pause these text ads after.

Hoang, P; That actually isn't true, it was an account creation issue. I didn't have to create any text campaigns to begin with.

I had a preexisting Adwords account (though I haven't made an ad yet), but I am experiencing the same problem. What should I do? Thanks!
