Can you run a youtube video ad without having an text ad on google adwords?

Hi all,

 

I have a couple of questions - 

 

Originally I wanted to make a campaign for youtube and I selected my video, etc. It then asked me to sign into an existing adwords account - is it possible to run just the youtube video without the text on a google ad or does this come side in side?

 

How can you also decide when to stop this campaign? I have a daily budget, however is it indefinite until you turn it off?

 

Many thanks

Hi @christina r,

 

"...is it possible to run just the youtube video without the text on a google ad.."

 

Positive, it is. Video ad campaigns allow you to show your video ads on their own or within other video content posted by others on YouTube and on websites of the GDN. No text is needed.

"I have a daily budget, however is it indefinite until you turn it off?"

 

If you set a daily budget the right way, it is a definite amount of money. When your daily spend reaches the daily budget, the campaign will stop for the rest of the day. (+20% overdelivery is allowed by the rules.)

 

Best,

Hi Lakatos, thanks so much for your super speedy reply! I unfortunately tried both of these - It was a video campaign I was trying to run, and after the last edit on the ad, it asks you if you have a good ad account, and then you sign in (and it makes you create your text ad.)

 

With the above in regards to budget, I understand that this daily budget will be hit, but my question is more so, how many days will this run for?

Hi @christina r,

 

1. Based on your words that's probably a new AdWords account that forces you to create your first ad campaign. Just create a first campaign in any style, but remember to remove the campaign as soon as it is done. Then find and hit the +CAMPAIGN button, select Video and go ahead as prompted.

 

2. You may set the campaign start date and end date at the bottom of the campaign settings page.

 

Best,

Lakatos

It seems you are still in the process of creating your very first campaign that's why you don't see much.
