Hello Denis B ,


Here are instructions on how to activate a paused campaign :


It is as simple as clicking on Edit and Enable. Are you able to see now your paused campaign on the left panel ?

Good morning, Denis.


Before you start spending money on your campaign, I would strongly recommend that you review at least the basic information in the AdWords Help Center. You seem to be very new to AdWords and I would caution you that it's possible to spend quite a lot of money without getting the results you want, especially if you don't really understand the system and how the parts and pieces work together.


Getting the campaign set up is only about 10% of the "work" you need to do. Success really comes after optimizing--which requires looking at your performance data and understanding what it all means.


If you have specific questions as you go, please post again.


Good luck!
