How many people buy a new PC and do not change their default search engine to Google? Chances are these people are using Microsoft’s Bing Search Engine and seeing Bing ads.

Why is this important? Because if they are searching on Bing then they are being shown Bing Ads.

If you are not advertising in Bing Ads then you are missing an opportunity especially if your product or services matches the profile of Bing’s user base..

  • Bing audiences are commonly more mature & less technical
  • That can mean they have more disposable cash
  • The price per click on Bing Ads is usually less than Google
  • The default search engine on Apple’s Siri is Bing

Why you should consider running ads on Bing

Take Advantage of Customer Behaviour

It is often said that as a business you must be seen where your audience is hence the many billboards advertising air travel & holidays on roads close to airports.

If you audience is less tech savvy as is common with generations that did not grow up with computers then they may be using the Bing Search engine without knowing it.

In which case, they are being shown Bing Ads and if your competition is wise to that then they may be getting low cost leads at your expense.

Make Your Advertising Budget Go Further

In general, Bing Ads offer a lower price per click than Google Adwords.

If your business fits the profile of a Bing user then this could be the low hanging fruit that you have been looking for.

By investing in Bing Ads You may be able to avoid some of the “heavy hitters” in your industry and obtain a much better marketing ROI as a result.

We Have Been Onto Bing For Years

Oracle Digital continually reviews its strategies, products and services in this ever changing digital marketing environment.

We have been aware of the opportunities in Bing for a number of years now and a number of our clients have been quite successful with their Ad campaigns on this platform.

We will be able to advise you in advance whether Bing will work for your business or not thus minimising your risk.

Never Put All Your Eggs In One Basket

Whilst Google Adwords is the biggest game in town there are always good opportunities in other media.

The best opportunities for you depend upon your business, your industry and, most importantly of all, your customers.

Mixing and matching your advertising strategies based on the data gives your business the best chance of getting a better ROI and avoiding upheavals in one or more media platforms.

How to Avoid the Most Costly Mistake in Search Engine Marketing

We are continually amazed by the number of businesses that pay good money for clicks on their ads on Google Adwords or Bing Ads and then send those clicks to their homepage.

Now this is fine if you have a clearly defined single product or service and your homepage contains enough clearly positioned text and images to get the site visitor to take action.

For those businesses that have multiple products or services though, sending all your traffic to your homepage may be watering down your specific message and may just confuse your site visitor.

So if you are a beauty therapist selling facials, nail care, day spas etc and you are advertising facials then send your clicks to a page that is all about facials and nothing else. You will be amazed at the results.
