Need help with your Microsoft Advertising?

How it works

Once a user enters a search query into the Bing search engine, if the search term used matches one of your keywords, your ad will appear above or below organic search results on the Bing search engine.
With the Bing Network, you can reach even broader markets, as your ad will be displayed to millions of potential customers on the Bing search engine result pages and on partner sites like The Wall Street Journal and InfoSpace.
Whether your ad appears, depends on several elements, including your ad relevance to the search query and the competitiveness of your bid. Improve these aspects and gain the top ad position. Look for a Microsoft Advertising agency that specialises in PPC and Microsoft Bing ads advertising.

Why you should choose Microsoft Advertising

Microsoft Advertising (formerly Bing Ads) offers paid advertisements to appear on its search engine. Paid advertisements are triggered by search terms, just like organic results, and appear above them; enhancing brand visibility, awareness, website traffic and if done correctly, sales or leads.

Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising on Bing is a cost-efficient way to attract existing and potential customers to your website. With growing market share, Microsoft’s Bing search engine and the Microsoft Advertising (formerly Bing Ads) platform should not be overlooked as an advertising platform. A Microsoft Bing ads agency can put together a campaign that targets the right keywords to increase your profits.

Bing is the second most popular search engine after Google, it powers Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa search, and most importantly, is the default search engine on all PCs running most versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system. One out of three searches in the US are done through Bing and the market share has even grown more rapidly than Google’s in recent years. With Microsoft Advertising, you can create ads, structure them in ad groups and campaigns, select your total and daily budget, and measure your campaign performance. You can start advertising at any time, with no minimum budget, and most importantly, only pay if a user clicks on your ad!
