Creating an AdWords Account

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create an Adwords Account. I have a gmail account. When I hit the Sign In button, the following message pops up

 

You have accepted your invitation to this Adwords account (Customer ID XXXXXXXXX). You’ll be able to sign in to AdWords once the person who invited you confirms your access. Feel free to contact this person directly with any questions. We’ve sent the instructions to your email address

You’ll receive an email once your access has been confirmed. 

 

I don't receive any email and no one has 'invited me'. I may have signed up for an Adwords Account some time ago, cannot remember. Can someone explain what I need to do to access or create an Adwords account given this situation?

 

Many Thanks,

Gerard

Hi Gerard,

 

Sounds like you have been invited to help manage an AdWords account. If this is true, and you have accepted that invitation, you may need to use a different email address to open a new account.

 

It appears your email address is already associated with an AdWords account. I have no idea how to find out who owns that account. You might try the "Contact AdWords" button at the top of this page.

 

Best of Luck!

 

Pete

Hi Gerard, Hi Pete

 

Could it have something to do with MCC - (My Client Centre) ? Can you recall did you have someone else set up the account previously for you?
