Tiger Pistol Wins Distinguished 2021 Franchise Innovation Award

Tiger Pistol Honored by Franchise Update Media with Local Marketing Leadership Award for Work with Coldwell Banker

Tiger Pistol, the developers of the only Collaborative Advertising Platform™ that makes high performance social advertising simple and scalable for brands and their channel partners, recently won the Local Marketing Leadership Award in the prestigious Franchise Innovation Awards.

“We’re thrilled to be honored for this latest award, continuing our streak of more than 20 industry recognitions in the last 20 months,” said Paul Elliott, CEO, Tiger Pistol. “Earning the distinguished Franchise Innovation Award demonstrates the power that our Collaborative Advertising Platform brings to the franchise advertising model, which requires a delicate balance between the needs of the brands and their franchise partners.”

Tiger Pistol’s winning entry, Coldwell Banker Achieves Rebranding Success with Collaborative Social Advertising, highlighted Social Ad Engine, a purpose-built collaborative social advertising solution that pairs Coldwell Banker’s real estate industry expertise with Tiger Pistol’s knowledge of social advertising at scale. During the company’s 2020 Project North Star rebrand, Coldwell Banker wanted a social advertising-focused rollout that empowered its agents and drove community connection, all while adhering to and promoting the new brand strategy.

“Real estate transactions happen at the community level,” said David Marine, Chief Marketing Officer at Coldwell Banker. “By empowering our agents with a hyperlocal collaborative solution like Social Ad Engine, we build brand equity while agents build trust within their communities. Tiger Pistol’s technology enables these community connections and facilitates incredible results for our brand and agents.”

The innovation of Social Ad Engine lies in the ability for agents to publish automatically-configured, high-performing Facebook and Instagram campaigns directly from their own Facebook Page. Social Ad Engine brought the power of Coldwell Banker’s new branding to the local level with the ability for agents to personalize messaging alongside brand-controlled creative to ensure brand integrity. Affiliated agents and brokerages could now build local brand awareness and share a voice for themselves and their brokerage.

“Every community has its own local dialect, landmarks, and culture,” said Paul Elliott, CEO, Tiger Pistol. “By empowering agents to pair the power of their community knowledge with recognizable brand creative, agents can better reach and engage potential home buyers and sellers, while Coldwell Banker increases their brand awareness by reaching deeply into local communities.”

The Franchise Innovation Awards by Franchise Update Media recognize the franchisors creating and implementing the most original and successful innovative strategies and tactics to build their brand. Judges evaluated the innovation, objectives, and results of more than 100 entrants.  Tiger Pistol will be profiled in the third quarter edition of Franchise Update Magazine.

AB InBev Global Director of Customer Experience Honored with Consumer Goods Technology Visionary Award

Daniel Ingram’s Vision for Collaborative Social Advertising Initiative Aids Recovery and Revitalization of Restaurants and Bars Worldwide

Tiger Pistol, the only Collaborative Advertising Platform™ that makes high performance social advertising simple and scalable for brands and their channel partners, has announced that Daniel Ingram, Global Director of Customer Experience at Anheuser-Busch InBev, has received the Consumer Goods Technology 2021 Visionary Award. Tiger Pistol nominated Ingram for the award based on his innovative mission and proactive engagement of Tiger Pistol to execute Ingram’s COVID revitalization initiative at scale.

“Innovators use their creativity, vision, and compassion to solve the unsolvable,” said Paul Elliott, Tiger Pistol CEO. “Ingram’s collaborative social advertising initiative helped thousands of businesses worldwide prosper in ordinary times and is further helping save thousands more businesses and jobs in a time of instability. He continuously goes above and beyond to support AB InBev trade partners, utilizing Tiger Pistol’s platform technology to ensure strategic alignment, global knowledge share, and local adoption. It was a no-brainer and a point of pride to nominate him for this honor.”

Ingram led the partnership with Tiger Pistol to execute a scaled social advertising program to empower AB InBev’s global network of bars, restaurants, and retailers with brand-funded, direct-response local social campaigns to drive foot traffic, all run directly from the establishments’ own Facebook Pages. The ads utilized AB InBev’s recognizable brand creative assets and more with dynamically localized messaging, directing consumers to their local tavern, steakhouse, sports bar, or convenience store. The scale and efficiency provided by the Tiger Pistol’s Collaborative Advertising Platform offered a game-changing competitive advantage, increasing localization, personalization, and relevancy with the ability to publish global campaigns from local establishment and retailer social pages.

As the pandemic traveled across the globe, restaurants and bars were closing in its wake. Ingram quickly realized that driving foot traffic wouldn’t work for every location. With each region affected differently, Ingram and Tiger Pistol worked closely to create a new social strategy. The focus was to support small businesses during this crisis, helping them recover with ads structured around community building, gift cards sales, home delivery, no-contact curbside pickup in impacted communities. As local Covid orders lifted, the ads shifted to drive foot traffic to open locations.

“AB InBev’s support initiatives for the recovery and revitalization of restaurants and bars focused on the essential role restaurants and bars play in fostering memories and connections in the lives of consumers,” said Elliott. “This work allowed AB InBev to build stronger, longer lasting bonds with their points of sale.”

“I am extremely honored and humbled that Tiger Pistol nominated me for the Visionary Award,” said Ingram. “I knew I needed a top-notch team like Tiger Pistol with best in-class technology to realize this trade partner program. Together, we deployed a unique capability to provide hyper-localized social media marketing services at scale, and mobilized communities to support local businesses.”

Ingram adds that moving forward technologies such as hyper-localized social media advertising will have the biggest impact on the industry. “Post-Pandemic, local retailers, pubs, and restaurants will remain the lifeblood of our business so collaborative social advertising must be center stage in our marketing efforts,” said Ingram.

Ingram’s Consumer Technology Goods Visionary Award is the latest in a string of industry recognitions for Tiger Pistol and AB InBev’s partnership. Their work together served as the basis for the following honors: Digiday Technology Awards, Best Social Media Marketing Platform 2019 and 2020; Street Fight Innovator Awards, Best Social Media Campaign; AdExchanger Awards, Best Social Media Campaign; U.S. Social Media Awards, Best use of Facebook/Instagram and the Innovation Award, and 12th annual Shorty Awards finalist, Best Facebook Campaign, Best Strategic Use of Localization, Best Use of Social for Consumer Products.

Tiger Pistol Named Finalist in Four Categories for the 13th Annual Shorty Awards

Tiger Pistol Shortlisted for Best Local Campaign, Best Localization Campaign, Best Real Estate Campaign, and Best Retail & eCommerce Campaign.

Tiger Pistol, the only collaborative advertising™ platform that makes high performance social advertising simple and scalable for brands and their channel partners, has announced it has been named a finalist in the 13th annual Shorty Awards in four categories. The Shorty Awards is an international competition honoring brands, agencies and organizations for their innovative work on social and digital media.

Tiger Pistol stood out among industry competitors based on the innovative and impactful social advertising campaigns executed on behalf of Coldwell Banker, BuzzBallz, and JOANN Stores.  

“We are once again honored to be recognized among some of the most influential, innovative global brands, organizations, agencies, and campaigns across social media,” said Paul Elliott, Tiger Pistol, CEO. “Recognition by the Shorty Awards recognizes and further validates our collaborative advertising approach as the future of social advertising.”  

Nominated for Best Local Campaign and Best Use of Localization in a Campaign, Tiger Pistol utilized their collaborative social advertising approach to help BuzzBallz overcome the barriers to alcohol marketing in the United States. BuzzBallz sought an advertising solution that would enable them to promote their ready-to-go cocktails and accelerate channel partner sales, while following domestic regulations and maintaining a level playing field in the marketplace. Leveraging automatic localization features in Tiger Pistol’s platform, BuzzBallz could adapt brand messaging that was relevant to each market. Moreover, the platform’s purpose-driven capabilities, specifically geo-fencing technology, made it possible to link the brand website to a direct list of local stores that sell BuzzBallz products, removing friction and providing a quicker path to purchase for the consumer

Nominated for Best Real Estate Campaign, Coldwell Banker reached new heights this year with the help of Tiger Pistol’s innovative platform. During the company’s 2020 rebrand, Coldwell Banker wanted a collaborative social advertising-focused rollout that would empower its agents and drive community connection, all while adhering to and promoting the new brand strategy. Tiger Pistol’s collaborative advertising platform brought the power of Coldwell Banker’s new branding to the local level to provide adjustable messaging for agents and brand-controlled creatives to ensure brand integrity. Agent Branding Campaigns were designed so affiliated agents and brokerages could build local brand awareness and share a voice for themselves and their brokerage

Nominated for Best Retail & eCommerce Campaign, JOANN Stores, with Tiger Pistol’s dynamic localization, was hugely successful, driving community engagement and initiative awareness. To support COVID-19 efforts, JOANN Stores created the “Make to Give – Masks for All Americans” initiative, encouraging crafters to make and donate masks to essential workers and schools. JOANN needed agile, flexible advertising to provide consumers with accurate, up to date information relevant to individual store locations and their local lockdown protocols. Tiger Pistol’s platform capabilities enabled JOANN’s mask initiative to reach a large, widespread audience across Facebook and Instagram while consistently providing hyper-targeted, personalized information to every user.  

The Shorty Awards, now in its 13th year, were the first awards to honor social media. By constantly evolving along with the changing landscape of social media, The Shorty Awards remains the most prominent award of its kind.

Finalists were selected by members of the Real Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences, comprised of luminaries from advertising, media, entertainment and technology. Members of the Academy include: Rosemary Mercedes, EVP & Chief Communications Officer, Univision; Nneka Norville, Global Corporate Communications Executive, Facebook; Kathy Delaney, Global Chief Creative Officer, Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness/Publicis Health; Lauren Gallo, Head of Talent and Content Marketing, Snapchat; and Sonal Dabral, Group Chief Creative Officer & Vice Chairman, Ogilvy & Mather; among others.

Empowering Real Estate Agents with Collaborative Social Advertising

Recently, Dawn Perry, Senior Vice President of Cross Brand Marketing at Realogy, a Fortune 500 real estate services provider appeared on Property Radar’s The Data Driven Real Estate Podcast.

Among other forward-thinking approaches, Perry discussed Social Ad Engine, a purpose-built collaborative social advertising solution developed by Tiger Pistol that enables Realogy agents to promote their active listings or themselves through best-in-class, high-performing Facebook and Instagram campaigns.

“Social Ad Engine allows an agent to do custom marketing,” said Perry. “It’s fueled by our data and our expertise, so we are providing great insights.”

With scores of agents in their networks, real estate brands have a unique challenge in maintaining brand integrity and regulatory compliance on social media. This challenge makes disseminating their brand content through their agents all the more important. Additionally, real estate is a highly competitive industry, with agents moving to new brokerages based on which offers the best tools and products to set them up for success. This makes agent recruitment and retention an industry-wide issue.

By providing Social Ad Engine to its brands, Realogy empowers its brokerages and agents with a collaborative social advertising tool that publishes campaigns directly from an agent’s own branded Facebook Page and delivers business results.

“Social Ad Engine enables us to collaborate with and support our agents like never before. The platform allows our brand to reach into communities through our agents, who understand the distinct dialect of their local neighborhood.”

-David Marine, CMO, Coldwell Banker

The simplicity and integration of the technology allows agents to publish best practice campaigns in less than 3 minutes, with little knowledge of Facebook Advertising. Integrated with Realogy’s agent and listing data, campaigns are pre-built and allow agents to customize, within the Realogy brand’s defined guardrails, based on their business needs. All platform language utilizes real estate terminology, and local compliance features are built in to automatically generate within the ad template, such as including the agents’ license number in ad copy and adhering to Facebook’s HEC Compliance requirements. Social Ad Engine is also integrated with Realogy preferred CRMs. All leads generated from an agent’s Social Ad Engine campaign are shared with their CRM in real-time, allowing for speedy follow up and nurturing.

“It’s easy for them to do a Facebook campaign,” said Perry. “It’s as easy as picking a campaign based on your brand or the product you’d like to offer, like ‘Real Vitalize’ at Coldwell Banker, and then just plugging it and go. It’s fueled by best practices that we’ve learned across the organization.”

Agents can even generate a seller report to show their clients marketing progress on homes they represent to sell. Agents agree that Social Ad Engine drives personalized, peer-to-peer interactions, accelerates home sales, and fosters brand loyalty and agent satisfaction.

“Social Ad Engine generates real results. The one-page report you get is an easy win with your sellers to show them exactly what you’re doing to market their home. I really think it’s the most affordable, easy way for agents to market themselves and their listings online.”

– Realogy Affiliated Agent

While other real estate marketing platforms support Facebook ads, such ads are usually rudimentary, driving impressions around the listing, with little room for the agent to generate leads. Social Ad Engine leverages the most relevant Facebook Ads Objectives to drive the results that matter. No other real estate marketing platform supports the ability for agents to publish Facebook Lead Ads, or auto-creates best practice Facebook Lead Forms that have unique qualifying questions.

“After doing social media advertising for many years and using every tool and strategy available, I can say Social Ad Engine is absolutely the best and most effective tool you can find.”

– Coldwell Banker Affiliated Agent

Social Ad Engine’s collaborative approach increased agent awareness, agent website traffic, and lead generation, all while significantly decreasing the cost of advertising. To date, Realogy agents have accrued nearly 500,000 leads, more than 7 million clicks, and are paying 55% less for lead campaigns and 68% less than the real estate industry benchmark for traffic campaigns.

Mass Publishing on Facebook in 2021: What You Need to Know

Facebook will be imposing new ad limits in 2021 and there are numerous practical implications for marketers to consider.

We’ve got good news and bad news for high-volume Facebook advertisers. 

The Bad News 

Facebook is initiating an ad limit per Page beginning February 16th, 2021. Ad limits per Page will depend on the size of your budget. 

Here’s the breakdown: 

So how can you get around the ad limits imposed by Facebook? (And by doing so drive better performance!) 

The Good News

Publish Through Your Channel Partner’s Pages. 

It’s no secret that brands who connect and collaborate with their channel partners often do so with the goal of driving local customer acquisition and increasing product sales. It’s also true that consumer engagement through social advertising is a powerful tool that benefits all stakeholders top to bottom – the brand, the consumer, and the channel partner. Channel partners have a strong handle on their consumers’ preferences, so it can be helpful to leverage their knowledge in your social advertising to optimize for your creative and audience. They are often also the places where consumers need to go to buy the brand’s products, so why not market through the closest point of sale? When mixed with brand marketing expertise, marketers can proactively deliver brand-level identity that drives a consumer-channel connection through their local partners by collaboratively publishing content. And by opening up your marketing collaboratively across numerous different Facebook Pages, suddenly Page limits are not a concern!

Optimize Your Creative Before You Publish 

By utilizing our predictive performance insights, we can help you pre-optimize your creative to ensure maximum ad performance and simpler execution. Publishing through partner Pages already increases the quality and relevance of your ad, factors that decrease the cost of advertising for brands through demographic differentiation and personalization. Our pre-publishing analysis will outline what the most effective product positioning, colors, and sentiments are based on historical performance.With With creative insights based on your historical performance, you can start smarter – utilizing less ads on Facebook testing and learning with pre-optimized ads at the point of publishing.

Use Dynamic Media/Creative Within ads

Integrating dynamic media or a creative within your ads will exponentially increase the success of your ad. Consumers are more likely to click on an ad with a bold design than an ad made of only copy. But implementing unique creative elements in your ads takes more ads through Facebook’s native tools. With Tiger Pistol, you simply build a template that dynamically adjusts creative for the intended market, allowing you to publish hundreds or thousands of customer-focused campaigns in minutes with high quality.

Pre-optimize Your Audience with Secure First-party Data Sharing

Audience testing can also account for loads of extra ads. Tiger Pistol makes it easy for your partners to securely gain first-party brand data to build better audiences, and, in a virtuous cycle, your brand can gain invaluable insight about consumer preferences at the local level as geo-fencing first-party data locally through partners creates a feedback loop that enhances the local campaign, while enhancing the larger first-party data lake. Focus less on going after every persona you can imagine, and instead focus on those segments that actually produce results.

Oh What A Year: Rounding Out Tiger Pistol’s 2020 Successes

Needless to say 2020 was a strange year. Yet it brought an invaluable opportunity to redefine, reevaluate, and reinvest. Tiger Pistol did not take this opportunity for granted. At that, 2020 has been quite a monumental year for Tiger Pistol and its growth. 

Following the nationwide lockdowns in early March, Inc. Magazine released their annual Inc. 5000 list which evaluates 250 private companies based in Texas. Tiger Pistol was named No. 59 overall and came in the top 5 for advertising and marketing companies. Tiger Pistol’s innovative, one of a kind platform has allowed for their exponential growth and recognition in the industry. 

In April, when normalcy seemed to be a fleeting notion, the Tiger Pistol team found ways to incorporate fun activities in their daily routine. At Tiger Pistol, we value the strong community culture we have built over the years, so staying connected and positive during quarantine was a big priority for everyone. For instance, “Quaran-Tini” virtual happy hours gave team members something exciting to look forward to. Additionally, we created a channel on Slack called #social-distancing-together which allowed the team to build stronger bonds by sharing encouragement, positivity, and laughter.     

July was huge for Tiger Pistol, with a new office opened in Cleveland, Ohio! Open during a global pandemic, how do you do that? The team employed creative thinking to develop innovative strategies that followed COVID-19 guidelines to safely open the space. Tiger Pistol was very glad that their new office would bring 25 job opportunities to Cleveland during a time of uncertainty for many. 

In August, Inc. Magazine’s 5000 (nationwide) list ranked Tiger Pistol No. 1425 with a three-year revenue growth of 311.4%.  It is an honor for us to be named one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. 

A milestone for the books: Tiger Pistol surpasses 1,000,000 social advertising campaigns in October! This achievement reaffirms the success of Tiger Pistol’s platform and its capabilities for consumers, prospects, and stakeholders.

“Surpassing one million published campaigns speaks to the scale and marketplace leadership  of the Tiger Pistol platform,” said Paul Elliott, CEO. Tiger Pistol remains the largest third-party publisher of local social advertising. 

More recently, Tiger Pistol was named the most awarded and recognized social media platform of 2020.

“These honors really speak to the quality of our social advertising technology, our company culture, and our common mission,” said Paul Elliott, Tiger Pistol CEO.

We are looking forward to what’s ahead for us in the new year!
