    ok either Im really lost or dont know what is going on. I have been trying to get accepted to the microsoft ad network and am running into some difficulties. when i was talking to the rep on the phone i said that i would be doing ppc advertising and she said this is not possible? i dont know. i sent her a e-mail and this is what she sent me back:


    Okay Rich here is the rundown on what we can offer and not offer:

    We do not do business with affiliates or networks or third party (T-Pans). We work with direct advertisers and agencies representing individual clients.



    If you can answer the questions below for your client I will be happy to get you assigned to an account executive who can help you with the campaign for display or to a support team for Search on Bing/Yahoo.



    To better serve you, please respond to the questions below on behalf of your client with as much detail as possible so that we may better address your request.



    Please briefly describe your business:
    Please describe your target audience:
    What is your primary objective in advertising online? (i.e. brand awareness, driving traffic, generating leads):
    What specific types of advertising are you interested in doing with Bing/MSN?
    What specific countries do you want to advertise in?
    When do you want your online advertising campaigns on Bing/MSN to start?
    What is your budget for advertising with Bing/MSN?
    Are you owned by a parent company?
    Are you the agency of record?
    Do you have any online advertising experience? If so, what portals or performance sites are you currently working with?
    Are you working with an agency?
    In what city is your particular office located?


    Thank you again for your interest in advertising on MSN. We look forward to moving forward in this process!



    ************ so any help on what is going on here or if im just using the wrong terminology or what. all comments will be appreciated.

    This is the problem:

    "We do not do business with affiliates or networks or third party (T-Pans). We work with direct advertisers and agencies representing individual clients. "

    They won't KNOWINGLY let in an affiliate marketer, so you'll have to have a product or website or SOMETHING that you're selling for them to approve your account. Does that make sense?

    Put up a website with some quality content or your own product. Answer all of the questions in a straightforward manner, get approved in the network, and then go from there.

    if anyone else runs into this problem it was because i was trying to join the wrong program. microsoft ad center and microsoft ad network are two different things with ad network being more for huge companies and media buys (Huge Money). ad center being the PPC network .

    I am not sure if I completely understand this thread speially after working since 7am + 2gmt.
    1st why you want ppc if ranking in bing is way easier than in G.
    The method is completely different but you can get huge amounts of traffic like I do on bing without paying a cent. Pm me if necessary .

    regards,

    Al
