Once the Google Ads Target has been selected, we must name our Audience (you can use the Segment or any key word to help you identify this Target) and grant Daasity authorization to access our Google Ads account before we can push the data.

Clicking on the Authorize button will take you to Google Ads authorization page, where we must login and grant access to connect our account with Daasity.

Once you have logged in, just click on the Continue button in the bottom right corner.

Once we are connected we need to select the Google Ads Ad ID (if you manage multiple accounts, you have to select the one we are going to use to create the Audience) .

4.    Create/Update Google Ads Audience

Now you just have to select if you want to create a new Google Ads Custom Audience or just update one you already have in Google Ads.
