For a small business, running ad campaigns across multiple platform is hard work. Having a single interface to do this makes the process more efficient and could potentially be a big time saver. It may also allow you to extend your advertising reach to further platforms where you don't yet have a presence.
Microsoft's announcement says the new Smart Campaigns experience including Multi-platform is launching in the US. Existing advertisers will be given the opportunity to migrate over the coming months, but there’s a waitlist you can sign up to for early access.
