How To Build A Huge Social Media Following YouTube star and author Matthew Santoro

YouTube star and author Matthew Santoro built an army of followers across multiple social networks by turning his fans into his collaborators

“Originally, I started making comedy sketches and a few videos that used a Top 10 list format. I started to notice the Top 10 videos were getting significantly more views than the sketches. I was at a personal crossroads because I wanted to make people laugh; I didn’t necessarily want to be known as the Top 10 guy. Then I realized I could integrate that comedy into the Top 10 videos. Instead of fighting my own success, I just embraced what was working.” Read Mo‪re...

Why Nordstrom is likely to succeed where Target failed

Posted by equilease_admin on September 20, 2016

Nordstrom Canada

Two years after the spectacular flameout of Target Canada, why would another U.S.-based department store merchant, Nordstrom Inc., take a chance on the often perilous Canadian market?

Seattle-based Nordstrom, which opened its first GTA store Friday at the Toronto Eaton Centre and opens a second store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre next month, is also an upscale merchant chancing a Canadian market that did not support discounter Target.

At a time when Canadian household debt is at near-record levels, the Target Canada post-mortem of analysts that Canadian consumers are skin-flinted would seem to augur poorly for Nordstrom. The same applies to Lowe’s, the U.S. hardware and home furnishings chain, and the venerable Quebec department store chain La Maison Simons, also rolling the dice on Canadian expansions. Read Mo‪re...

Meet the 2016 PROFIT 500

Posted by equilease_admin on September 19, 2016

What does it take to build one of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies? 39 facts about the companies on Profit's annual list of the country's rapidly-expanding firms and the entrepreneurs behind them

The 2016 PROFIT 500 are awesomesauce. Want proof? The companies on this year’s list grew sales by an average of 686%over the past five years. (Or had a median growth rate of 219%, for you nerds). It’s pretty impressive, considering that over the same period, Canada’s GDP shrunk by close to 4%.

Some winners got here by selling really cool stuff, like deluxe knives (Knifewear, No. 123), family-friendly video games (Big Blue Bubble, No. 131) and ultralight wheelchairs (Motion Composites, No. 91). Far more trade in less glam—but equally lucrative—fields: 44% of companies on the ranking provide services to other businesses. Read Mo‪re...

Daughter of Equilease's President Sings Her Way Into The Heart of Bruce Springsteen

Posted by equilease_admin on September 6, 2016

Bruce Springsteen and Maddie Abbott

Ten-year-old Maddie Abbott of Toronto is “The future of Rock and Roll,” according to the legendary Bruce Springsteen, who yelled it out at a recent concert.

Maddie quite literally took over the stage from The Boss at a Bruce Springsteen concert at the United Centre in Chicago at the end of August, during his U.S. tour.

After Springsteen noticed Maddie’s decorated handmade Bristol board poster, on which she wrote, “It’s my 1st Show and I’m Waitin’ on A Sunny Day,” the superstar performer brought her on stage. She hugged him, then he put her on his shoulders and walked across the stage, before the confident girl took the microphone out of his hand, and sang the chorus to “Waitin’ on A Sunny Day” solo, pumping her fists to a roaring crowd of more than 20,000 Springsteen fans. The Boss, meanwhile, looked on astonished and gave Maddie’s mother two thumbs up.

“It was one of two best experiences of my life,” gushes Maddie, who wants to be a performer and takes singing and acting lessons. “The first best experience of my life is that I was born. The second was being on stage with Bruce Springsteen,” she says. “But if I wasn’t born, then that would have never happened!” Read Mo‪re...

What Salespeople Can Learn From Oprah’s Favourite Things

What Salespeople Can Learn From Oprah’s Favourite Things

Getting the attention of prospects has never been more challenging. This innovative strategy can help you cut through the noise and win over potential clients

This is one of the most difficult times in history to be in sales. Prospects have greater access to information than ever before, but also more messages coming to them through more communication channels than ever before.

Barraged by offers and contacts, decision makers are increasingly tuning out anything that doesn’t directly benefit them here and now. Companies are going to great lengths to avoid talking to salespeople—some will now only take outside messages by fax, and others are including middle initials in email addresses to make them harder to guess.

How’s a salesperson supposed to break through and get prospects’ attention in this new reality? Stop selling, and start giving. I don’t mean a whitepaper or an infographic—those are good assets, but everyone is using them now. Your offering needs to be different, valuable, and memorable. Read Mo‪re...
