I am trying to create a universal app campaign but cannot find that option. Can anyone help?

I am a first-time user. When logging into Google Adwords I am can only choose a search network or display ad. I've tried following various online guides for the universal app campaign but can't proceed. http://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2016/06/16/universal-app-campaigns. Firstly, I don't appear to have a dashboard.

Is it that before you can create a universal app campaign you must have created at least one ad before? Or is this not available in some countries? I am in the Bahamas.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi @WSC M,

 

This is my advice for you to do. Just create a first campaign - using any of your options - as prompted and enter a minimal daily budget like $0.10 for it so that you cannot lose money. (You can disable this first campaign whenever you wish to do so.)

 

When done, go to your All campaigns page and click on the large red +CAMPAIGN drop-down button. You'll likely see this:

Select Universal app campaign menu item on the drop-down and go ahead - again as prompted by the system.

 

Best,

Lakatos
