copy campaign between accounts

Is it possible to copy campaigns from one account to another in an MCC account.  I manage a Adwords account for a company that has multiple locations, and wants to create mirror campaigns for several of their locations.  The campaigns are all identical except for the location targeting.

I would recommend using AdWords Editor, Google's offline tool, to copy your campaigns, make any necessary changes, and post them into a separate account. It's the fastest way I know of to do these things. (Be aware that you should double-check all targeting options & overall campaign settings on the Settings tab for the new campaigns before you activate them. In my experience, the upload sometimes doesn't pick up all of those settings.)

 

You'll need to create all of the accounts you want online before you can download them to Editor and create campaigns there.

 

While performance data will not move with the campaigns, it will always be available in the original account.

It's a fairly awesome tool if you poke around in it. It make most bulk tasks a lot simpler.

 

Good luck!

One more important thing you need to take care is that IP Exclusions/ Call Extensions are not copied through Adwords Editor. This needs to be done after uploading the campaign only.

Theresa is there any other way? I don't use Adwords Editor. I tried it once and found it too complicated for me.
