When it comes to PPC, the first name that comes to mind is: Google AdWords.
Although many beginning marketers may gravitate towards Google Adwords, it is more expensive, more competitive, and less defined.
Focusing only on Google AdWords can be a big mistake.
This is where Bing comes in...
A Bing Real Estate advertising campaign can help you to reach an entirely different section of your market while avoiding direct competition with some of the bigger competitors in the field.
Although, in terms of traffic, Bing ads are not as big as Google Ads, they are less competitive and on average cost 33% less than Google Ads.
Bing has 20% market share of the online PPC market. When you consider Yahoo! still makes up around 10%. Yahoo is powered by Bing, that goes up to 30%.
This is a serious amount of web traffic to ignore!
Bing is the perfect starting point for small lean business and a very wise source of traffic for all online business.
Bing has approximately 9.6 billion searches per month.
According to Statistica.com, 39% of mobile and tablet devices searches in the U. S. originated from Bing at the end of the 3rd quarter in 2018.
A good Bing ad campaign can be strategically used in conjunction with a Google Adwords campaign for better conversions.
Ask yourself this question.
In what other scenario would you be happy to let 30% of a your target market walk?
30% of potential visitors means 30% of potential customers and 30% of potential profit.
Instead of earning 50K a year from your website, you could be earning 65K a year just by paying attention to Bing.
Bing is integrated into Windows 10. The latest integration of Microsoft includes Bing as their default search engine with Bing deeply ingrained into their system.
Microsoft says that this is the last version of Windows ever. Future upgrades will be integrative rather than a complete overhaul. Bing is here to stay.
Not only is Bing the default search engine for Microsoft's Edge browser (330 million monthly devices) it is also the search engine used by Cortana.
Cortana is a system, similar to Siri, living on your desktop. If you want to know the weather, you can simply ask Cortana, "What is the weather in my area?" and while you are typing, she will pull the results from Bing before you even complete your thought. Meaning, if someone should set Google as their default search engine, they are still likely to be using Bing on their desktop without realizing it.
If they ask,"Find best real estate agent in my area", Cortana will open up Bing and show the results in their browser.
That could be your website.
Think about the kind of person that is deeply ingrained with Microsoft ecosystem.
Who is likely to use Microsoft suites and hardware?
Simple Answer: Businesses.
This means executives, CEOs, managers and decision makers are more likely to be looking at Bing.
If this is your target demographic, then you should strongly consider adding Bing ads to your campaign.
