What Is Microsoft Advertising?
Microsoft Advertising, previously known as Bing Ads, is a paid search and ads outlet ready for your business to utilise. With Microsoft Advertising, you could access pay per click ads and paid search opportunities on Microsoft Bing, Yahoo, MSN and AOL, as well as more, smaller search engine sites powered by Bing. Your Microsoft PPC ad will appear in your selected Microsoft browser search results, on desktop and mobile, opening a new, untapped market audience who are eager to interact with your business. A well strategised Microsoft Advertising plan will help drive traffic to your website, increase impressions and clicks, and provide a strong ROI.
Why Is Microsoft Advertising Important?
Increase your paid advertising engagement with a detailed Microsoft Advertising strategy for maximum ad impressions.
Increase Ad Engagement
Microsoft Advertising offers a unique opportunity to connect with and benefit from a wide search audience from all Microsoft Search Network sites. By tapping into this search audience, you could see an increase in website traffic, a high click-through rate and an increase in high-value actions for your business. These could be an increase in phone call enquires, driving footfall traffic or increasing your online product sales. Our PPC specialists are on hand to review your paid marketing efforts and craft an optimised Microsoft advertising campaign, capitalising on Microsoft Bing ads and other MS search engine opportunities.
Low Cost Per Click
Reap the rewards of a less competitive advertising market with Microsoft ads. Across all industries, the average CPC (cost per click) is 33% lower than the average seen on Google ads; meaning that Microsoft paid advertising campaigns can get more for their money than the Google comparison. With this CPC saving and the opportunity to connect with new audiences, Microsoft Advertising is a golden platform for further paid advertising for your business. Build brand awareness, reach new audiences and push your business to the next level with a diverse PPC ad campaign strategy.

Niche, high-impression audiences not found on Google tend to use these search engines and are accessible through the Microsoft advertising search platform.
