In 2015, Billion Dollar Boy's subsidiary Lasso Group was selected by Bell-Phillip Television Productions as exclusive distributors of the world’s most popular soap, The Bold and the Beautiful in the UK.

Services[edit]

Billion Dollar Boy combines creativity, technology and a global network of influencers to publish content and drive engagement across social media.

Billion Dollar Boy helps brands and agencies reach targeted audiences through influencer marketing,[7] such as its promotion with Stuggy for StudioCanal. They consider a number of factors when matching the right influencer to the right brief, for example considering an influencers' tone of voice and creative aesthetic[8]

The company also manages campaigns across all Social Media networks, for example a Vine campaign on behalf of FMCG giant Danone by combining traditional advertising (OOH posters) with a series of six-second Vines.[9]
