We’re excited to announce that Microsoft Audience Ads, our native advertising solution, is now fully available to all customers advertising in Australia, New Zealand, France, and Germany. Last Summer, Microsoft Audience Ads became available in Australia, New Zealand, France, and Germany as an extension to your Microsoft Advertising search campaigns. Now you can also leverage the Microsoft Audience Network with separate audience campaigns. This means that you can now unlock the full power of the Microsoft Audience Network within the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, as well as Australia, New Zealand, France and Germany.

Getting started

How can I get started with an audience campaign?

Creating a new campaign to run audience ads on the Microsoft Audience Network is similar to creating a new search ad campaign.

  1. From the Campaigns page, click the Campaigns tab (or from the main menu on the left, click All campaigns and then Campaigns).
  2. Click Create campaign.
  3. Click the appropriate goal for the campaign. Setting your goal right at the start lets us suggest the most helpful features for your campaign. You'll still have access to all Microsoft Advertising features regardless of the goal you choose.
  4. On the What kind of ads do you want to run for this campaign window, select Audience ads and then click Next.
  5. The campaign creation wizard will then walk you through the process to add settings, audiences, targets, ads, budgets, and bids.
