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
Microsoft Research and IPSOS, a market research firm, led an in-depth study with global mobile users to understand how smartphones influence the consumer’s path to purchase. We found that consumers rely on their mobile devices throughout all the stages of this process.3
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.
Mobile advertising with Bing Ads lets you be there to influence a shopper’s decisions in their “mobile moment."
