Managing PPC Just Got Up to 90% Easier – Yahoo and MSN Partnership and What It Means for Your Business

February 24, 2010

Yahoo and MSN recently announced a partnership where Yahoo will start displaying MSN pay per click ads across their search engine, search partners, and network of display ads. This yields great opportunities with all advertisers using pay-per-click marketing for their online lead or sales generation, by making campaign management up to 90% easier.

Why Google is So Easy and “Addictive”

Managing pay-per-click programs across multiple advertising platforms can be a hassle for B2B organizations. Generally Google has the most traffic (65-ish percent of the overall market), and offers various tools making campaign management extremely simple. However, since this platform is so easy and the traffic is the greatest, there is also substantially higher competition.

Cheaper Leads via Yahoo & MSN PPC, But Drawbacks As Well…

Yahoo and MSN each now have roughly 10-12% of the overall search engine market. What we didn’t realize for some time is B2B decision-makers use these search engines and cheaper leads can be found if we can combine the traffic at a reasonable internal cost. We’ve seen costs-per-lead up to 6 times lower on Yahoo and MSN compared to Google, so consider these other search engines as a positive contributor to your overall lead generation strategy. However, there are problems which keep many B2B companies from using Yahoo and MSN, which we and other marketers experience.

Payoff from the Partnership for Your Business

When MSN starts showing ads on Yahoo this year, you will now only have one interface to manage, and one set of challenges importing your Google Adwords campaign. This is an instant 50% improvement, and probably more like 90% when you consider how clunky management in Yahoo can be.
