I've been told to click on the campaign tab at but when I arrive there there is no campaign tab and it is trying to step me through placing a text ad with no option for video ad. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Hi @steve s,


Please open AdWords and click on the Campaigns tab. Next, look for the large red button that says + Campaign and click on it... and then click video. This will start the process of setting up a Video campaign. Please note that in the left hand column, you want to click on All Campaigns... not a individual campaign (like search) or the red button will not be present.
