Get Your Google Ads Account Set Up Quickly

In this short presentation, Ross gives you a demonstration of how to setup your Google Ads (Ads was formerly called AdWords by Google) account. While this is not a complicated process, there are a few things that are helpful to know before heading through the account creation process. For example, Ads will default your account to AdWords Express - a choice that may not suit your needs the best. Ross presents the whole process of creating your Ads account in clear, plain language, making it easy for you to get your account set up correctly for your purposes.
