How To Create Storyboards Using Google Ads

It’s easy to create great paid search custom storyboards using Google Ads data! On top of that, you can even mix other PPC data sources into a single visual or storyboard.

Connect your account

It’s very easy to connect your Google Ads account to Optix. It requires only 2 quick steps:

  1. In your Data Manager, choose “+ Add Data Source” and click on “Google Ads.”
  2. You’re then redirected to Google Ads. Sign in as usual and allow Optix to access your Google Ads data (don’t worry – we only use it to generate your storyboards!).

As a sign of success, your account will now appear in your Data Manager main screen. You’re now ready to create your Google Ads storyboard!
