  • We are creating a platform that embeds the advanced technologies behind as intelligent services in Microsoft devices, services, and third-party apps that consumers use every day. This platform also builds bridges between our devices and apps, so they work together to provide an experience that helps users get things done.This is happening today and will become more prevalent within Microsoft devices and services, including Windows, Office, Windows Phone, and Xbox. Many will be made available to third- party developers to integrate into their Windows and Windows Phone apps.We are the only search engine on the planet that searches across all your connected devices, whether it is your PC at work, your smartphone during your commute, or your Xbox at home.
  • Over the past year, we’ve completely evolved our offerings to be more compelling for both consumers and marketers alike. We know that brands need innovative ways to reach consumers in incredibly immersive digital environments, and that those methods need to bring you real results. That’s why every change in our platforms and our offerings puts the consumer first in ways no one else can.Windows has gone from a PC Operating System to a beautiful multi-platform interface that gives marketers the opportunity to reach consumers in native environments like apps.Xbox has evolved from a gaming console to a home media hub filled with immersive experiences.The acquisition of Skype has given advertisers more opportunities to connect with people through video chatMSN has a new look/feel and is deeply integrated with real time trends, content, and social feedsAnd finally Bing…the fastest growing search engine, consistently winning on better search results (bing it on)We believe that when you put people first, advertising will work better. The moment that a consumer and brand connect around experiences that they want can be useful, relevant, exciting, and valuable. We are committed to improving the advertising experience for everyone—consumer, marketer, and publisher—by putting people first. We have the canvas of properties and technology innovations to help you reimagine advertising and create truly unforgettable experiences with consumers – and to evolve your digital marketing from distraction to connection. We want to partner with you (agencies, advertisers) to bring this vision to life. 
  • With the new Bing, we know a consumer’s life doesn’t fit in a simple box, so neither should search or their experiences. Bing is becoming a reimagined platform that provides consumers insight and information, how and where they need it.And for us on the advertiser side of the business, know that when you put consumers first – great advertising opportunities follow.
  • When you put consumers first, place the experiences they are looking for in front of them: opportunities for advertisers followHere at Microsoft, we strive to do just that – create new, engaging experiences that surprise, delight and engage users.By doing so, we make ‘your next best customer’ more reachable for your business.
  • Microsoft is making substantial investments in Bing Ads – for the marketplace, for advertisers, and for users. In the last 12 months, we’ve delivered hundreds of feature enhancements addressing top requests, one being an expanded global footprint, combined with location-based results, for new advertiser opportunities
  • Development has become an ongoing process; planning is iterative and not linear. Prioritization is important and advertiser feedback is a critical component of determining future releases. Bing Ads offers a faster, more agile release cycle than ever, enabling: Even better accuracy of search resultsMoving from pilot to GA faster for international markets – and the gap between US features and these markets is much smallerImproved performance metricsOur release planning cycle spans the year. This has enabled the delivery of 1,000+ updates to the platform to bring you an easier-to-use and more effective platform.
  • More ad types and formats to drive richer consumer experiences – bringing new opportunities for advertisersWe have been making improvements to the way we edit ads to get them running for advertisers faster (to get more clicks). We have been improving our matching technologies to unlock more clicks in the auction.Long Ad Titles: This change can increase click by 5- 10%.Sitelink Extensions: Drive traffic to specific pages within the website and advertisers can see significant gains in their click through rates.Local Ad Extensions: A great way to layer in useful information on ads without a lot of work from advertisers –see more volume, get more customers.
  • Bing Ads understands that an advertiser’s search campaign can be optimized across devices and through various targeting methods depending on marketing goals as well as products and services offered.  That is why we are committed to providing our advertisers the transparency and control to customize campaigns to maximize their effectiveness.Our goal is not to create more disruption for our customers, but to minimize it with consistency, expectancy and trust – while driving the best results possible.
  • And for our partners and advertisers, as Bing continues to evolve beyond the PC browser to device-integrated search – enabling enriched experiences and new ways to find customersStreamlining the consumer experience is bringing your customers one-click closer to your business. Bing Smart Search for Advertisers – Next generation, visually rich search experience helps both consumers & advertisers get more done, faster. Visually Rich Search ExperienceThe perfect blend of branding and task completionSearch at Your Fingertips (it’s information when, where and how you need it) With Bing Smart Search, it’s easier to get more done in less time.
  • Drive highly qualified leads with Bing Ads integrated in Windows 8.1 Smart Search:Drive results with advanced ad features from Bing Ads. Bing Ads in Windows 8.1 Smart Search support all of Bing Ads’ advanced features like site links, location and call extensions - designed to drive results for your business.High relevance ad placement. Your ads will show only when they are highly relevant to the information the consumers are looking for, ensuring they are useful for the consumers you want to reach.Web previews drive efficient clicks. Bing Ads in Windows 8.1 Smart Search previews of your landing page so that consumers know what to expect when they click – ensuring a better experience for them and more qualified leads.As always, advertisers pay only when consumers choose to engage with their ads.
  • Bing is focusing on the consumer experience, and delivering delightful experiences across devices, products and properties As advertisers, all of these changes have created new demands that we have to meet. That means:Creating completely new ad models and experiences that leverage the unique and native capabilities of the platforms they are on.  Experiences that respect the consumer and enhance their user experience. With more receptive consumers comes more effective advertising.Building brand experiences that flow seamlessly across people’s personal devices, enabling consumers to interact with your content and apps from whatever device they are on in a simple and engaging way.Leveraging our high quality data, insights and content environments to drive audience solutions that are relevant and valuable to your customers.  Ultimately, we have a new opportunity to create experiences for people that are truly relevant, useful, valuable, and fun – but we have to have the intelligence and capability to take advantage of it. By focusing on the consumer, and the consumer’s decision journey as they go from influence to purchase – opportunities for advertisers follow.
  • Bing Ads understands that an advertiser’s search campaign can be optimized across devices and through various targeting methods depending on marketing goals as well as products and services offered. That is why we are committed to providing our advertisers the transparency and control to customize campaigns to maximize their effectiveness.Bing Ads is dedicated to reducing friction when advertisers decide to import their AdWords campaigns, so some of the changes we are making include:Enhanced Mobile SupportBid Adjustments Improvements
  • In the digital age, consumers go through a five-stage decision-making journey before buying goods and services. What’s more, they may go back and forth from one stage to an earlier one. They may even get stuck on one stage.Digital channels—and the potential to use them to create simple paths through the clutter—play a critical role at each stage.  A deep understanding of each of these decision phases will help marketers end the confusion in their own minds about where the consumer is at any given time. It will help marketers invest their marketing dollars where they have the most impact. And it will help marketers help consumers move smoothly through the purchase stages.
  • While customers have made the transition to leveraging online search for offline task completion, businesses are still struggling to put their best foot forward and effectively promote their business online to all these potential local customers. The challenge is a combination of complexity of search advertising, lack of search engine marketing knowledge and the missing connection between online activity and offline commerce.Our goal is to make it easier for advertisers, with the results they need.
  • Bing Ads is making effective local search a priority, with a range of offerings aimed at making local search marketing easier, more cost-effective, and more likely to bring buyers to an advertiser’s door. Our strategy focuses on what’s needed to make you successful, by:Eliminating complexityEnabling consumers to complete tasksEnsuring advertisers are able to measure ROIWe have a range of products available today that help a business drive more engagement with local customers via store visits and phone calls while removing the complexity of search engine marketing.
  • Making Local Search Easier and More Effective for BusinessWe are making it easier for businesses and customers to connect. Advertisers who take advantage of Bing Places can easily design campaigns that reach customers in their neighborhood – and do so with just a few clicks.Combining Bing Ads Express with Bing Places is a perfect combination for small-to-medium businesses looking for local traffic; for advertisers who lack the time or expertise to manage their own ad campaigns; and those who spend $500 a month or less on Bing.
  • By determining the customer’s location, Bing Ads limits the display of your ad to specific geographic locations.     Location targeting allows you to target countries, regions, states, provinces, designated market areas, metro areas, or even, in some cases, cities and towns within metro areas. You can also target potential customers who live within a 5 to 100 mile radius from your business or other specified locations.  With geo-targeting, advertisers have a way to improve ROI, connecting to the consumers you are looking for – and in the right places. 
  • Today’s mobile capabilities can be used to bring people to the door of a brick-and-mortar store. There are multiple new ad opportunities, an ever-improving customer experience, and more functionality. Consumer demands vary by device. Mobile phone searchers are on the go and want high-level, accurate information; tablet searchers perform more in-depth research. While the number of mobile phone and tablet searchers continues to skyrocket, PC searches have declined 6 percent in the past year.
  • With Bing Ads, we are invested in making enhancements to make it easier for local advertisers. Bing Ads Express, Bing Places for Business and our various targeting and reporting capabilities / offerings will simplify your efforts and help drive customers through your front door.We understand that driving leads and calls for your business is critical to your success – with consumers on-the-go and using mobile and tablets more than ever, we know that searches during the critical research and purchase phases will ensure you are connecting with the right people are the right time.
