Bing Ads Express for Small and Midsize Businesses: Quick and Easy Online Advertising
You have seen the ads for Bing, but you haven’t tried it yet, right? When invited to take the Bing It On Challenge, participants chose Bing over Google for the web’s top searches. Try it for yourself at www.BingItOne.com
Now you know. Bing is becoming more than just a search engine; it’s powering the things we all use every day. At Microsoft, we’re evolving Bing to deliver information where you need it, when you need it, sometimes even before you need it. The better technology can adapt to you, the more you can be yourself. As more people chose Bing as their preferred search engine, you want to ensure that your business is taking full advantage of the online resources available to you. We can help. Our Microsoft store offers free workshops on various topics including Office, Windows, Internet Safety and now, Bing Ads Express. Classes are designed for small groups of participants and held in the store. Given the limitations on class length, we have selected the features and benefits we feel will best provide a foundation for the topic or product and that will resonate most with customers. Our goal is not only to impart knowledge, but also to have fun. We do our best to create an open, comfortable, and interactive environment where YOU have a chance to ask questions and get as much hands-on time with the products as possible. That being said, I want you to know about the Bing Ads Express workshop. Bing Ads Express is a new online marketing tool created especially to help smaller businesses gain online presence through a simple interface and hands-off ad management. There’s no keywords to choose, no bids to set. Just give them some basic information about your business and tell them what you’d like to spend and they’ll take it from there.
