Promo Marketing's 2018 Top 50 Distributors list has been out for a little while now, and we were finally able to catch up with BrandVia Alliance, one of the year's biggest risers. The San Jose, California-based distributor jumped from No. 31 in 2017 to No. 23 in 2018, growing its sales organically from $42.6 million to $54.9 million. We wanted to know the secrets behind their enormous success, and lucky for us, Sam Brown, director of corporate marketing, and Eric Nelsen, account executive, were happy to oblige. They joined us for a fun and wide-ranging conversation about organic growth, customer experience, company culture and, most importantly, having fun and getting sh*t done!
Plus, Brendan and Sean dive into the fake Warren Buffett Twitter account that shook the internet to its core last week before being suspended because Twitter is no fun. We asked the big questions like: Wasn't Warren Buffett tweeting a listicle of 10 things that "are cool" a dead giveaway that this was a fake account? Does anyone care? Is reality all just an illusion? Find out on this episode of the Promo Marketing Podcast!
