Not sure if it’s worth expanding to Bing / Microsoft Ads?

Just because everyone says ‘Google it!’ doesn’t mean some people don’t actually… Bing it. There’s plenty of traffic on Microsoft Ads, and we want to make sure your customers see your ads, even if they’re not on Google.

With nearly 9% of the search market, leaving out Microsoft from your digital marketing planning means missing out on a chunk of searches which you could be turning into revenue. Plus, the Microsoft display network gives you access to unique placements that aren’t covered by the Google display network, including MSN, Outlook and the Bing homepage feed.

If you’ve been running Google campaigns, we’ll take the best of what works on Google and import it into Microsoft. We can often use some of the tracking too, meaning you don’t have to start from scratch.

Once campaigns are up and running, campaigns can take on their own direction, led by the data. There are often differences in the audience profiles that mean performance varies, as well as variation in platform algorithms. Not to mention the use of artificial intelligence, which is sure to create differences in user experience in the future.

Want to appear on Microsoft Shopping to increase visibility and sales?

Shopping ads work differently to search ads, although they’re similar across Google and Microsoft. The latter’s Shopping offering has image based results, plus Local Inventory Ads to show people if they’re near a store with your product in stock. 

We can either build your feed from scratch, or use your existing Google data to get up and running on Microsoft Shopping with relative ease.

Looking to advertise to a B2B audience?

With Microsoft Edge being a common default browser, many workplace searches are done on Bing. Microsoft Ads is also integrated with LinkedIn, so there’s a ton of commercial and industry audiences we can build and use with your campaigns.

When setting up your Microsoft Ads campaigns, we’ll look at your audience profiles on your site and any existing LinkedIn traffic, and make sure your top audiences are included in your campaigns.

Want your Microsoft campaigns to be led by data and analytics?

Microsoft Ads isn’t just Google Ads lite – it’s a complex platform, fed by unique and different signals and using different algorithms. 

We’ll often use your Google accounts as a starting point, but once the campaigns are set up we’ll treat them just like we would any individual campaign. We’ll test and refine across numerous variables based on real time data, and not just what works well on Google.

Integration with LinkedIn means your Microsoft campaigns can be carefully tailored to the right users, while their Audience Network gives you access to display and native advertising on Outlook, MSN, Xbox and thousands more placements.

What does paid media involve?

Paid media covers multiple platforms such as Google Ads, Meta, Amazon, and Microsoft. The platforms you utilise will depend on who your target audience is and what your business goals are. We can provide guidance on which will serve you best if you’re unsure where to begin, or if you already have an idea, we can help strategise an effective approach.

What’s the difference between the media spend and the agency fee?

Your media spend is the budget you allocate towards advertising exposure. This budget is paid directly to the platform you’re advertising on, in most cases, when someone clicks your ad.

The agency fee is the cost of our agreed services, and is paid directly to us.
