YouTube Launches Sponsored Ads, But Not Working For Me!

So, as you know, I am a bit YouTuber. Okay, I am not, but I do have a YouTube channel with weekly videos on search news, that some of you watch, some of you listen to and some of you ignore.

In order to get some new viewers, I decided to try to promote my videos for search related keywords. I tried, at least, but Google won't let me run my ads and I am not sure why.

I read the YouTube blog post's instructions and several articles on the topic at Techmeme. I login to YouTube Ads and I set up my campaign, hit run and it gives me an error. Here are some of the screens, not all of them, but some:

The dashboard with my single ad: YouTube Ads

This is the screen asking me to confirm my ad and then make it live: YouTube Ads

This is the error I get after hitting the big GO like button: YouTube Ads Don't Work

So maybe when I get back to my office in New York, I can try to figure out what is wrong. I have some ideas, but we will see.

I'm getting a similar error, but at the beginning stages of setting up my campaign. I hope they fix it soon... I'm really looking forward to testing this.
