Experience new growth possibilities with Microsoft Advertising today >

Microsoft Advertising for small businesses is a cost-effective way to reach new customers when they’re already searching for your products and services. Creating a Microsoft Advertising account is free and easy to do, with no setup costs or maintenance fees. You determine the budget that's best for you — from several daily options — and maximize your marketing dollars with ads that can be customized based on geographic location, device, and keyword to reach the customers most likely to buy.

Whether you determine your ad budget is $100 or $10,000, you’re not billed until someone clicks on your ad.

Regardless of your budget, you’re not billed until someone clicks your ad. While you always decide how much you choose to spend, your cost per click (CPC) for each ad varies based on several factors and is determined through an auction process across advertisers using Microsoft Advertising for small businesses. The ad auction is dynamic and continuous, so CPC changes constantly.
