Welcome to Google AdWords! We want to wish you every success with your new online campaign and let you know there is help at hand if you need it.

To get you started we’ve designed a short email series, The AdWords Welcome Pack, to give you a solid foundation to achieve success with your new online campaign.

This email covers the top 4 things you should know once your ads are set up and activated: how you can see your ad, pay for your AdWords advertising, control your costs and organise your account.

You’ll receive your next 5 emails on a weekly basis, so keep an eye out for them!

1. Where is my ad?

Check if your ad is up and running using the Ad Preview tool. Type a keyword from your account into the Ad Preview tool, and it will show you exactly which ads are appearing for your keywords in any given location, including your own ad.

We suggest you view your ad with the Ad Preview tool instead of searching on Google. When you search for your ad multiple times on Google, it can affect your ad performance by showing your ad too many times without being clicked on.

If you can’t see your ad, use the Ads Diagnostic Tool to help identify the reason it’s not showing. Remedying the problem can be simple. Bear in mind that your ad will only show once you have entered your billing details. If you haven’t done this yet, log in to your account now to select one of the payment methods below and activate your account.

2. How can I pay for my AdWords advertising?

Available payment options depend on the country of your billing address and the currency with which you make payments. AdWords has 2 main payment options – prepay and postpay. The way you’re charged varies dependent upon the billing method you’ve chosen. Find out what’s available to you on our Payment Options page.

Once you’ve chosen a billing method, find out when you will be billed and how you can print invoices in our online AdWords Beginner’s Guide.

Please note: once you’ve chosen a billing option, either prepay or postpay, it is not possible to switch between the two within your AdWords account, so choose carefully.

3. What will my AdWords advertising cost?

With AdWords, you are in control! You control the amount you pay with your daily budget and maximum cost-per-click bids (Max CPC).

Your daily budget is the maximum you’re willing to spend per day. This amount is entirely up to you and you can adjust it at any time. You are also in charge of the max CPC for each keyword within your campaign. This is the amount you’re willing to pay each time someone clicks on your ad. The actual cost of each click can be lower than your max CPC bid.

Learn more about how to adjust your budget and keyword CPCs.

4. How should I organise my account?

With AdWords, the organisation and structure of your account is important. It can have a huge effect on the performance of your campaigns. We recommend you structure your account in a similar way to your website. So, if you offer multiple products or services, you should create a new campaign for each product/service.

Each campaign will contain ad groups that should be based on different themes.

Within each ad group are your ads and keywords. Your ads are what your customers will use to decide whether or not they will visit your website, and your keywords are the words your potential customer will use when searching for your ad.

Take a look at an example account structure to see how you might structure your own account!
