We’re in growth mode!
Today, we’ve launched Microsoft Advertising in 29 countries across Europe and Africa. These 29 markets bring advertisers access to a new audience and enable them to reach consumers in 19 new languages.
This will increase our footprint to reach an estimated 41 million consumers, making 400 million searches each month on Microsoft and partner sites.
We’re thrilled to expand access to these new markets to all advertisers and partners in 2022. This represents a huge milestone in the scaling of our platform and is an exciting first step in unlocking even more of Microsoft’s global search volume.
To mark this milestone, we are expanding our Partner Program to include the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal, and South Africa, which we announced earlier this year. Find out more about the Partner Program and its benefits here.
If you are an existing client and want to start advertising in these new markets, we encourage you to talk to your account team or reach out today. If you are brand-new to Microsoft Advertising, you can sign up and get started right away!
