Hi everybody, I’m Billy Booe, VP of Business Development at Activate!. Although this may be my first ever “blog”, I am amply experienced in the social media world. And though I live on Twitter and LinkedIn, I really wanted to finally be able to write beyond 140 characters.
In terms of my experience, I’ve been in the promotions industry for over 30 years—primarily serving in a direct sales and management capacity. In my early days, I had a stretch as a PGA Tour pro (Yes, I can correct your slice), but eventually decided to join the family promotions business.
My blog will primarily focus on self-promotion, business development, distributor platforms, and Activate!’s culture. I will also offer perspective on industry related topics, like buying and selling trends, new product offerings, distribution structures, and a whole host of other topics.
As always, I would love to hear from you in the form of comments, likes, reposts and follows. Your input only enriches the discussion. So feel free to comment below, Follow Me on Twitter, or Connect on Linkedin.
