Microsoft To Scrap Their Bing Ads Express Service

Microsoft Chat Support

         About Microsoft Bing Ads Service

Microsoft launched their Bing Ads Express service as an upgraded ‘express’ version of their Bing Ads online advertisement service. Bing Ads is similar to the Google Adwords service, which charges companies fees for posting ads on the Google search engine page. This service is available in the pay-per-click payment mode.

What is the difference between Bing Ads and Bing Ads Express?

Microsoft felt that the old format for filling out all the details for enrolling in the Bing Ads program was complicated and time consuming. They came to the conclusion there was a market for quick or ‘express’ online ad posting service. With this idea in mind, they launched the Bing Ads Express service with a focus on small and local businesses.

In other words, this was more of an online service still in its beta phase, available only in United States. Microsoft even provided a Microsoft chat support phone number on its official website. According to the Bing Ads Express website, the service helps to post an online ad quickly, in just three simple steps. And, this ad so posted will be displayed on the relevant Bing and Yahoo search result pages and on partner websites.

However, there was not much interest in the new ‘express’ service offered by Microsoft. Many firms preferred the Bing Ads service to the new Bing Ads Express because of the better options and settings this provided them. Microsoft has realised that in their efforts to make the process quick and simple, they have ended up removing many options and settings that their Bind Ads customers thought were necessary.

Yahoo Search

         Contact Microsoft Support

Microsoft has since announced the decision to scrap their Bing Ads Express service, and will from now on focus on their Bing Ads service. The Bing Ads Express users are urged to use their username and password to log in to the Bing Ads service website, and start an account there. They are also advised against using both these services at the same time – until Bing Ads Express goes offline – to avoid double billing.

In their statement announcing their decision to end this service, Microsoft states that through the Bing Ads Express experiment, they have learned how much importance their customers give to all the options and settings helping them launch a well-controlled marketing campaign online.

So, if you have a Bing Ads Express account, contact the Microsoft chat support number provided on the official website and find out about opening a Bing Ads account using your username and password.
