Tiger Pistol, with Anywhere Real Estate, Named Finalist in Digiday Media Awards
AUSTIN, Texas, June 23, 2020 — Tiger Pistol, the leading collaborative advertising platform that delivers local activation at scale, has been named a finalist in two categories, Most Original Use of Social and Best Brand Partnership – B2B, in the prestigious Digiday Media Awards for its collaboration with Anywhere Real Estate, the largest residential real estate company in the US, for their Social Ad Engine product.
“By pairing Anywhere’s real estate industry expertise with Tiger Pistol’s knowledge of social advertising at scale, we were able to deliver a large scale social advertising capability that drives remarkable results for Anywhere’s real estate agents,” said Paul Elliott, CEO, Tiger Pistol. “Our relationship with Anywhere is a true partnership, and the campaigns we execute together dramatically exceed expectations for effectiveness and cost efficiency. These honors from the Digiday Media Awards highlight Tiger Pistol’s industry leadership, as well as the collaborative nature of the relationships we share with our partners, like Anywhere.”
Social Ad Engine’s industry-leading platform enables Anywhere’s agents and brokers a seamless experience to publish high performing Facebook and Instagram ads. Every listing campaign leverages Social Ad Engine’s best-in-class, automatic A/B testing to ensure agents’ budgets are spent effectively to drive the best outcome. Agents realize the benefit of local social advertising with campaigns that are published directly from their Facebook Business Page versus from an office, company or brand page. For agents without an active listing, Social Ad Engine enables the auto-creation of branding campaigns to ensure agents can promote themselves anytime across the Facebook family of apps.
“Just like every Tiger Pistol platform offering, we developed Social Ad Engine with users in mind, simplifying the arduous process of publishing social ads for each listing by building behind-the-scenes automation,” said Elliott. “Our platform lets agents onboard and connect their Facebook Business Page quickly and publish thumb-stopping ads with only a few clicks. Agents can easily see what they are accomplishing with intuitive dashboards to view their campaigns, metrics, results, and other key elements. Moreover, they can download a report to demonstrate campaign success to their clients.”
“Tiger Pistol’s knowledge of social media campaigns, service level, attention to detail, and true commitment to our partnership were integral pieces of the successful simultaneous launch of Social Ad Engine to five of our brands,” said Christian Russo, Senior Director of Product Management, Anywhere. “The dedication and enjoyment in their work and platform is evident in everything they do. When we established our long-term partnership, we had no idea how impactful it would be in today’s environment, however with Tiger Pistol’s help, we are able to deliver a level of certainty in these uncertain times with the speed and flexibility needed to let our agents and brokers own the recovery.”
Tiger Pistol’s partnership helped Anywhere pivot seamlessly in a time when the real estate industry has been forced to undergo dramatic operational changes. By accelerating the development roadmap, Tiger Pistol and Anywhere were able to provide new and meaningful tools to agents through Social Ad Engine. Among some of the major changes made was a way for agents to speak to their communities in a more personal way through promoting agent advertisements, not just listings. Video and Carousel ads have also recently launched to enhance campaign performance and to give agents new ways to promote their listings and themselves.
Tiger Pistol and Anywhere’s Social Ad Engine faces off against Questus and Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation, IDG Communications, Inc. and Splunk, Verizon Media and Procter & Gamble, and the Financial Times and CFA Institute for Best Brand Partnership – B2B. The competition is equally stiff in the Most Original Use of Social category, contending with Sputnik France for Paris Mayday, ESPN for Dear Kobe, Zyper, E! News, and Bleacher Report. Winners will be announced Thursday, June 25 at 2:30PM EST in a virtual ceremony.
