Does your business function for specific hours in a day or days in a week? Are you then making the mistake of showing your ad even on those non-functional day(s) or hour(s)? The easy solution to fix this is to make optimal use of the ‘Ad Schedule’ feature in Bing Ads.

Also, businesses that do not have such specifications, can run their ads on days that witness desired results. For instance if your business is of courier service and you observe that majority clicks come during the morning and then in the evening, you can accordingly restrict your ads to serve only during the converting phase.

Adjust Bidding For Day(s) or Hour(s)


Further you can increase or decrease your bidding for your desired day(s) or hour(s) depending on how they are performing or what your business target is. For instance, you find that visits to your business is least during midnight till early morning, however there are some minimal clicks you receive during that period. In such a case, instead of completing routing out the duration from showing your ad, you can reduce the bid for that duration. Hence, serving the ads but not falling hard on your pocket.
