Hello warriors,
I am new to bing ads and I am going to try direct linking since I don't have much knowledge in making LPs.

Is direct linking safe?

What are the things to be taken care of while direct linking?

    I think it's safe only because I've done it without problems.

    You can direct link on Bing, but ideally you'll have to get your own domain and then redirect it to your hoplink, but with masking, so the final URL will be the same as your domain, if you understand what I mean?

    However, I wouldn't advise direct linking, because your conversions will be rubbish and you'll simply lose money.

    You'll have a much better chance of making a profit with a landing page, so you should start experimenting with them, because otherwise you will never learn. And besides, your first landing page won't be perfect anyway, so you'll have to test a few different variations, because finding out what works best.

  • As long as you're not violating Bing's policies direct linking will be allowed. However, I agree with others that you need to track. Tracking can make or break a campaign, simply because you can see what makes you money, and what's costing you money with no results.

    In my experience, the best way to be successful with direct linking is to target highly motivated buyers. These are people you don't need to convince, they want the product and they want it now.

    There are a variety of ways to target these users, but you have to approach it in the correct manner to be profitable.

    Yes, direct linking from Bing Adcenter to your offer works.
    According to Bing Terms, your Destination URL & Display URL must be same.

    Like others, I would suggest you to use a tracking link on your Bing to avoid issues! In my case, direct linking works if I'm using tracker.

      I am agreed with you @solarwarrior

      Where you're paying for traffic, you should at least capture their emails. So that you can continue making money from them sending emails using different offers on same niche.

      If you try to continue direct marketing, it will really be harder for you to keep your profits & build a ROI campaign.

      As you're not expert, you can hire somebody to create a landing page. It will definitely help you in long run.

        Not all the traffic you buy from PPC will convert immediately. But if you get their email address, there you'll have a chance to sell the product again sending emails. Now, you'll pay nothing for that returning traffic but conversion? Yes!

    If you are going to use direct link via bing ad center. You should consider following points.

    1) Use Tracking platform e.g prosper202
    2) check landing page of an advertiser. It must be mobile friendly.
    3) Track every single record of click and traffic source and try to optimize it.
    4) Do the split test at ad group level and try different keywords and scale up your conversion.

    Building landing page is not much difficult. You can use multiple builders to create simple landing pages. Landing Pages are very important to scale up your business. In this way, you can retarget your audience and can earn more money from those emails.

    With the direct linking you cannot track the Customer for re marketing for
    re marketing you need to have customer details so better option is to create landing page and try to make conversion out of it and you will have details to market your products to customer.

      Absolutely! Agreed with you.
      Direct marketing is one time marketing that is never recommended by any marketer.

        The do allow Direct Linking for Affiliates as long as it meets or editorial Guidelines. However Please note that their system will only allow one unique URL per search query. Meaning if the owner of the website is advertising with us as well your ads will not likely show.
