💰 Paid Advertising

6 Reasons Why You Should Hook Up With Bing

6 Reasons Why You Should Hook Up With Bing

In Paid Advertising, Bing is that weird brother that gets left out of the party. Google gets all the glamour and attention even though they’re similar.

You heard of Bing and how you can advertise on it… though how do you know if it’s worth it to run ads?

You heard from other people you may think that Bing Ads is not as good as Google Ads. 😓

You want to spend your hard-earned dollars on the best Ad platform. And you think Bing Ads won’t reach your customers.

And who cares if it may be even cheaper than Google Ads…

You may actually change your mind, once you knew that Bing isn’t actually that far off from Google. It owns 36% of the search market in the US and makes 3.5 billion searches per day!

And if you are outside the US?

Bing does better!

Since the introduction of Windows 10, you’ll be able to target customers in the UK, Canada, France, or Germany. 🚀

And unlike Google Ads… You can actually assign different time zones to your ads. They show up when your customer is at the computer. Not when they are asleep!

Go welcome Bing in the party!
