OUR COMPANY STORY

A LITTLE STORY ABOUT A LITTLE SHRIMP

In May 2011, Steve Hibberd, Troy Townsend and David Solomon (non-executive Chairman) founded Tiger Pistol with one goal in mind: to help local businesses leverage the power of social media to drive traffic to their stores. If you’re wondering what that has to do with a shrimp, well, you wouldn’t be the first. The tiny, tiger pistol shrimp is a pretty amazing creature. With its large, irregularly-shaped claw, it can make one of the loudest sounds on the planet – just as we help local businesses make a big noise in social.

Over the years, we have served thousands of businesses, tested many product iterations, price points, and service delivery models to understand how to best help local businesses take advantage of the power of Facebook and Instagram advertising.
