Please note:

  • The Google AdWords integration will send your contact lists to your AdWords Audience, it will not generate contacts within our system based on your existing AdWords Audience.
  • To set up Google AdWords integration you will first need a Google AdWords account; you can create an account on the Google AdWords (https://adwords.google.com/) website.
  • Only one Google AdWords account can be connected to a Vision6 account. We rely on account permissions set within Google AdWords to allow for multiple accounts to be selected in our integration.
  • Lists of any size can be imported into an audience, however you need at least 1000 contacts with unique and valid email addresses before Google AdWords will allow active advertisements. More information can be found within Google’s documentation at https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2472738.
