Why adCenter
What’s Working for our Clients
“The ROAS comparison for June for our
biggest client, expressed as revenue per
ad dollar spent, is $2.85 for AdWords,
$5.53 for Yahoo, and $8.13 for
Microsoft adCenter. Needless to say,
we’re going to increase our investment
in Microsoft adCenter right away.”
— David Szetela , President & CEO, Clix
“The campaign has been an overwhelming
success. We have seen conversion rates
up to two times as high as other major
search engines, including Google, all at
lower bid prices. At this point, we want to
spend as much money with Microsoft
adCenter as we can because it simply
works as well or better than anything else
out there.
-- David Rodnitzky, Senior Director of
Marketing Adteractive
“The efficiency gained from Microsoft
adCenter allowed to be more
aggressive with its acquisition strategy,
resulting in more conversions across
the entire campaign.”
— Frank Lee, VP, Account Management &
Partner Relations, The Search Agency
“MSN achieved an excellent rate of return
on the amount we spent.
looks forward to growing our paid search
campaign with MSN as the engine
-- Craig Cooperman, Director, Advertising &
Partner Marketing at
