Over the past few months, Microsoft Advertising has been piloting an exciting new platform we’ve built called Digital Marketing Center
, a Microsoft Garage
project. This is a way to help small and medium business owners manage their digital marketing across not just Microsoft Advertising, but also leading advertising and social media platforms like Google Ads, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Digital Marketing Center provides you with a central platform to efficiently manage your online presence and marketing activities across paid search advertising, paid social advertising, and organic social media management. It’s currently free to use. You pay only for search and social ads and manage your social presence at no cost.
We’ve been piloting with a limited number of customers the last few months and have received very encouraging feedback, so we’re now ready to extend the invitation to additional businesses.
