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 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.
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 the Microsoft Windows operating system. One out of three searches in the US is 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!
Once a user enters a search query into the Bing search engine, if the search term used match one of your keywords, your ad will appear above or below organic search results on Bing. 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.
Due to there being less competition than on Google Ads, Microsoft Advertising offers cheaper click prices (CPC) which can lead to more affordable and cost-effective campaigns. This is a great way to invest in marketing for smaller businesses. Lower click prices can result in a lower risk of achieving a greater return on investment.
Lower competition means it is easier to compete and dominating a good position on the page becomes easier as well as more cost effective.
Gain additional traffic and attract consumers that exclusively use Bing. Around 40% of Bing users have a high disposable income. What’s more, Bing offers a different demographic of mostly users in the professional stages of their life
