Create a Video Campaign via the Bulk uploads section

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,
I would like to be able to create a video(youtube) campaign via the bulk uploads
section.
The campaign should include the following parameters:
1. Campaign Name
2. Campaign Status
3. Start Date
4. End Date
5. Ad Schedule
6. Device Targeting
7. Bid Adjustment
8. Location Targeting - country, state, city
9. Language
10. Ad Group containing the demographics targeting - Gender and Age
11. Ad Group containing a bid
12. Budget
13. An Ad Containing: youtube url, display url, final url and an impression
tracker template

I tried to create one:
Inserted name, status, start date, end date, ad schedule, budget

The system ignored the ad schedule, bid adjustment and language.

The template I used was located here -
https://support.google.com/adwords/editor/answer/56368?hl=en
But it didn't include example for a youtube campaign.

 

  1. Is there an option to create a campaign like I specified?
  2. Can you please provide a template csv specifically for video campaigns?

 

Thank you very much.

Hey Shai, how are things?

You should be able to do this easily by using Google Adwords Editor. It's the program from Google to edit your campaign in off-line mode, and it's very good for bulk changes/uploads.

All you have to do is setup things once and copy and paste, or drag, or whatever you choose hahaha.

 

One hint is to create a campaign on Adwords as you wish, and download it to Editor so you can copy and change it in bulk.


Check more about Editor:

Hope this helps.

Hey,

I looked at Adwords Editor. From my understanding, it doesn't support video campaigns.
Are you sure it does?
Can you still please attach a template csv for creating a video campaign?

Thanks

Hi @leandrofm!
Unfortunately there is no option to create a video campaign in the AdWords Editor (v. 11.2.3). Any other ideas?

Hi @Ratan-Jha,

Thank you for providing the link, however that article is not correct for the current version of AdWords/AdWords Editor. For instance, description lines are not acceptable any longer. Any ideas how to create a file for bulk uploads of video campaigns?
