Mobile searchers are your customers. They use their smartphones to shop, research and buy in real time and on the move, now faster than ever. How quickly? Consumers on Bing make a phone call, store visit or purchase within five hours of a mobile search.1 With Bing Ads mobile advertising, you can expand your reach to millions of these customers.
As worldwide smartphone use grows, mobile advertising is quickly becoming the best way for businesses to reach consumers. Search queries that originate from mobile devices are outpacing searches from PCs.2

This shortened conversion cycle reflects the added urgency of mobile searches.1 Whether a phone call, store visit or purchase, mobile users are ready to act immediately.
