At the APAC Search Awards 2021 hosted virtually in January, MoneyTap’s Search Engine Optimization campaign won accolades for The Best Use of Search – Finance, beating strong contenders which included legacy banks and asset management companies from countries like Vietnam and Singapore. Whirlwind also bagged five awards consisting of two Gold, two Silver and one Bronze at the ET DigiPlus Awards hosted virtually in February. Their Search Engine Marketing campaign for Bridgestone India got them a Gold for the ‘Best Use of Performance Marketing‘ and a Silver for the ‘Best Use of Data Analytics/Insights‘. MoneyTap’s Search Engine Optimization campaign brought laurels with a Silver for the ‘Best Use of Search Marketing/Paid‘ and a Bronze for ‘Industry Award – BFSI‘, while TISS’ paid and content marketing campaign won a Gold for ‘Industry Award – Education‘.

APAC Search Awards hosted its 1st edition this year while The DigiPlus Awards hosted its 2nd edition to commemorate the talent, expertise and innovation of digital marketers who were able to make a difference and contribute significantly to their client’s goals. Both the award ceremonies had industry leaders as judges who analyzed the nominee entries against an array of criteria such as strategy, creativity, innovation, execution and results. Whirlwind managed to score high across these parameters for its campaigns on Bridgestone India which generated a phenomenal ROI of 2023%, MoneyTap which crossed a ₹500+ crore in loan disbursement and TISS which saw an ROAS of 14X.

Speaking on this occasion, Saumil Patel, Founder, Whirlwind, said, “It’s been a rewarding experience working with illustrious clients such as Bridgestone India, MoneyTap and Tata Institute of Social Sciences.

Dr. Amina Charnia, Associate Professor and Lead TPD, CETE by TISS, said “TISS’ academic rigour and Whirlwind’s marketing genius translated into a strong partnership that helped us achieve some phenomenal results on our campaign for RTICT courses.
