If you already have a Google Account, you can use that email address and password to sign in.

Tip

Have a personal Google Account, but want to use AdWords for business? We recommend keeping separate business and personal Google Accounts, so consider creating another Google Account. You can create a Google account at https://accounts.google.com/SignUp

For example, use one Google Account for products you use specifically for business, such as AdWords and Google Shopping. You can link a business credit card and your professional contact information to this Google Account. Use your personal Google Account for products you enjoy for personal use, such as Blogger and Google Groups. You can link a personal credit card and your personal contact information to this Google Account.
