Youtube Promotion

Hi, there. I have uploaded a video to YouTube and am trying to Promote it. I have gone through the steps several times, and at the end am prompted to sign in to my AdWords account. When I sign in to my AdWords account, I am being taken through steps to start my first campaign and asked many of the same questions I already answered on the "YouTube" side, plus others that I feel are not relevant. I simply want to promote my YouTube video on the YouTube site to YouTube visitors. I have tried going directly to adwords.google.com/video and am bounced to the "first campaign" page. I don't see any link to my YouTube account or videos.

 

Can someone help?

 

Thanks!

Janna

Hello Janna L,

 

You have to create your first campaign in order to move on. It can be just blank.

Then create new campaign click on + Campaign and choose Online Video - the last one in the bottom and then you can set budget, location, language etc. + you can select video you want to advertise on youtube and select where you want your ads to appear, whether in search or somewhere completely else.
