William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has received a 2018 Internet Advertising Competition Award from the Web Marketing Association. The award for “Best Real Estate Online Advertisement,” and “Best of Show Online Advertisement” recognized the company’s headlining billboard advertisement that ran atop The New York Times Real Estate section in March, April, June and October of 2017.
The innovative billboard ad showcased the firm’s most spectacular listings to New York Times subscribers in the N.Y. metro area as well as across the country and the world. The advertisement incorporated SnappSearch by Inoventiv Canada, which is a unique search-in display advertising unit designed to dramatically increase engagement from prospective clients.
This technology allowed users to search for exclusive William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty listings inside the ad unit without navigating away from The New York Times webpage. Users also had the option to click into the property detail page on williampitt.com for more information pertaining to the listings that meet their search criteria, with parameters such as city or town and minimum and maximum home price.
“We are honored to receive this award that recognizes the incredible work of our outstanding marketing team,” said Paul Breunich, President and CEO of William Pitt and Julia B.
