Bing Ads To Launch Excel Add-In To Streamline Campaign Management

In good news for PPC Excel enthusiasts, Bing Ads announced it is beta testing an Excel Add-In to manage campaign data and download and post directly to the Bing Ads data center.

Here’s what the process will look like:

Essentially users will have the option to use Bing Ads Editor or the Excel Add-In. The Add-In allows Excel users to bypass the step of having to upload or paste data from Excel to Editor and then uploading the data from Editor to the data center.

A launch date hasn’t been set, but Bing Ads is holding a webinar on the Excel Add-In and Bing Ads Editor on September 12.

It’s refreshing to see Bing Ads finally incorporating Excel more thoroughly into its product. In June, they released an update to the Bing Ads Intelligence Excel Add-In and rolled out the option to download reports to directly Excel rather than having to go through the hassle of converting CSV files.

    Wow- integrating two Microsoft products…groundbreaking stuff for Bing! ;)

    Just curious- Does their editor work on OSX yet?

    I’ve been using a third party software to manage/ automate campaigns.

    As an advertiser, I really like Adcenter, in terms of the ROI. However, the platform is a nightmare.

    The Bing Ads Editor doesn’t work on Mac, yet. I asked about that recently:

    In summary: it’s on the radar, but still no actual news on that front.
