Bob Reina: A CEO With A Heart

Bob Reina, CEO and founder of Talk Fusion, believes in helping people and giving back. Reina’s generous $1 million donation to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay and his financial aid for an Indonesian orphanage are just two examples of Reina’s unselfish acts. To allow the global independent associates who promote Talk Fusion to do good as well, each associate is allowed to give a charity of their choice a free Talk Fusion premium account help them with their fundraising efforts.

 

After graduating from the University of South Florida and the Tampa Police Academy, Reina became a police officer. Introduced to direct selling by an MLM telecom opportunity, Reina excelled, while working full time as a police officer. However, Reina did not become an entrepreneur until he tried to send friends a video in an email and discovered that it was not possible. With the help of a friend who was a tech genius, Reina started Talk Fusion in 2007. Having worked as an independent distributor for various companies, Reina knew that it was a good business model, except that he had to wait up to a for his commissions. Reina developed Talk Fusion’s Instant Pay Plan, which pays distributors immediately, instead of making them wait.

 

Today, Talk Fusion offers an All-in-One Video Marketing Solution, which includes signup forms, video newsletters, live meetings and video chat, in addition to video email. Reina is a guest author for MarTech Advisor’, having written two articles in the past year about how businesses can grow using video marketing.
