Benefits of Microsoft Ads
- Often less expensive than Google. Keyword bids tend to be lower, averaging at 33.5% cheaper (cost per click).
- Great targeting options based on device type and OS. Unlike Google Ads, it allows you to opt out of desktop advertisements if you just want to target mobile users.
- Granular control by allowing adjustments at ‘ad group’ level e.g. you can assign different ad campaigns to different time zones.
- Microsoft users tend to be more engaged. In the automotive industry, for instance, users arriving from Microsoft Ads convert at 10%-56% higher rates than those from Google ads.
1530% return on ad spend for garden retailer
Lazy Susan is a high-end garden furniture retailer. They approached us to improve the performance of their PPC campaigns – this started off as getting the foundations of the account in order, then once the account was in good health, we’ve since been able to grow the campaigns even further by implementing call tracking, optimising their feeds and pulling revenue data into their Google Ads and Microsoft Ads accounts.
We increased revenue and return on ad spend (ROAS) by 23% and 24% respectively in the first year. We then increased this further in our second year by 196% for revenue and 79% for ROAS to an incredible 1,530%.
