Advertising is not easy
I consider myself a pretty tech savvy person. I have been working online for years and have multiple gadgets and gizmos that don't phase me one bit. So I was a bit shocked to find that creating Bing adverts was something I would find impossible.
The world of internet promotion is certainly not new to me, I have been promoting a variety of blogs/websites online for the last decade or more. However I have never even been tempted to run Bing ads, that was until I got a £75 voucher emailed to me recently.
I decided to give Bing ads a go, I registered, set everything up and started creating my ad when it told me that the web address I wanted the ad to link to was too long. I had no idea how to solve this problem, I cannot shorten my websites address in any way so I got frustrated and left it.
A few days ago I got an email from a nice Welsh man (I can tell by his name) who introduces himself as my 'personal account manager' he says he can see I started working on my ads but gave up and asks if I want help. I emailed him back and told him that my web address doesn't fit so I couldn't continue the process. He tells me it fits just fine and he has made me some example ads to have a look at.
The example ads are pretty good, just a few minor changes needed so I emailed him back and told him I would edit them and set them up. Only I cant find them in my account to edit them and I cannot simply copy them into a new ad because surprise surprise, my web address is too long!
I give up! I will stick to methods I understand to promote my website from now on I think.
