$500 YouTube Channel Setup Cost
Applied directly to your Google Ad spend
100% of your setup fee will be used directly for your Google Ads costs as part of your weekly retainer budget (read below about weekly retainer budgets). So why do we charge a setup fee? It funds your Google Ads spending account and also helps to ensure we are managing our time wisely with new clients. Conducting a full onboarding process requires:
- Setup and configuration of new Google Ads accounts.
- Setup and configuration of new Google Analytics accounts.
- Syncing of data between YouTube/Google Ads API bridges to Data Studio.
- Setup and building of custom reports in Data Studio.
- Full communication access to us via phone and email.
100% Usage Based Billing
Never pay for more than what you use
Hardly Creative does not charge a monthly fee nor do we have monthly spend requirements. After you are setup as a client you are free to run as many or as few video campaigns as you’d like, we will always be here ready for you.
You will also be able to transparently monitor exact cost data for every campaign and cost per view expenses in Google Data Studio which pulls data in real-time from the Google Ads API.

Need to cancel service? Not a problem.
Our setup fee is non-refundable. But refunds are possible for any part of the budget we have charged you for but hasn’t yet been spent by Google Ads. The exact amount that Google Ads has charged from the budget will always be available to you in Data Studio which refreshes in real-time.
If you need to cancel our services, contact us immediately and we will pause all your active campaigns ASAP during business hours. From there we will take steps to calculate how much budget remains and issue you a refund through your payment processor.
