Meet Will, Our Business Development Representative!

Posted on 4/9/15 9:09 AM by Ashley Wood

We're always searching for new organizations to join the Amilia community and we're constantly learning how to best serve them. This requires a ton of communication and interaction with the people who run these organizations. That's where Will comes in! He's the first point of contact for anyone interested in becoming an Amilia client. We asked him 10 questions so you could get to know him better!

Explain your job at Amilia Will_dog_funny_rounded_edges

It’s my job to connect with potential customers and try to figure out where they are today, where they want to be tomorrow, and if Amilia can help them get there.


What’s the last thing you searched for on Google?

Camping gear and camping places for my upcoming summer trips!


What’s one word you’re guilty of using too often? 

I talk A LOT so I am probably guilty of using most of them too often. Luckily I talk to many people so they hopefully don’t notice. That being said, I definitely say “realististically” way too much!


Pick one: Kittens or puppies?

While I do operate a small zoo and love my cats... puppies and by extension dogs rank higher! My dog is super spoiled!


Pick one: Bacon or Nutella?

Bacon times infinity plus one! Even better than regular bacon is maple bacon cooked over a campfire combined with French toast and eggs…covered in maple syrup.


What is your TV guilty pleasure?

I don’t get any sort of cable or satellite but I am a huge Walking Dead and Breaking Bad fan.


What’s your favorite app?

I don’t really have a favorite but I am definitely guilty of checking the sports highlights a little too often. I also spend a lot of time on LinkedIn.


Best part about your job at Amilia:

The best part about my job is things are constantly changing and I am always learning something new. I am always meeting new potential clients and learning about their businesses.


Favorite Amilia feature:

I love the feature linking activity or membership registrations to a suggested merchandise purchase. How many times have you said “YES!” to “would you like fries with that?” and the best part is organizations don’t need to carry lots of inventory. They can sell merchandise and still stay lean and profitable.


Why should organizations use Amilia?

Organizations should use Amilia because we are the only product in the market that is focused on the end user experience. Our client’s clients are the most important people in the entire equation. We make it easier for them to register, buy, and donate and allow the admin staff to stay focused on mission critical activities like growing revenues, improving programs, increasing brand awareness, and building stronger relationships with their client base.
