    Social media has become a powerhouse method for digital marketers worldwide. The ability to build an international network of followers and subscribers has allowed e-commerce to flourish on a global scale and build a strong market source for digital marketers everywhere. Social marketplaces now facilitate peer-to-peer (P2P) direct sales between users and other users and have in many ways turned the traditional merchant-consumer relationship on its head. One entrepreneur and his team took this idea and refined it in an all-in-one social media platform called Brabble.

    A Building of One’s Own: Extraordinary Liquidity Leads to Big Property Investments by Corporations

    When Alphabet, the parent company of online juggernaut Google, recently agreed to pay $2.4 billion to acquire Chelsea Market in lower Manhattan, it was an eye-popping number for even a goliath like Google to spend on increasing its corporate footprint. Reasons for such an outlay abound. Corporate prestige, for one: As Amazon teases cities all over North America with the prospect of its second headquarters, tantalizing with as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs, Google has sent a clear signal that the sophisticated, worldly urbanity of Manhattan is as on-brand for the company as it gets. Despite its many billions, though, there’s practical purpose underlying Alphabet’s growing Manhattan footprint. And Google…

    For Estate Lawyers Like Konrad Malik, Including Online Assets Increasingly Significant

    When making estate plans, it’s important for people to consider all their property—and that means their digital property too. With the advent of social media, email, online banking and trading, smartphones and apps, and other innovations that allow everyone to stay connected, perform tasks, create, and work more efficiently, a tremendous amount of data is generated. But, the question is, what happens to your digital assets (your accounts, photos, and information) when you pass away? It’s a question not many people think about when making their estate plans, though, as it’s becoming increasingly clear, it’s a question that is all too important.

    Tech In Toronto: City’s Technology Community Expected to Enjoy Continued Growth

    Often, when people think of technology — and innovation in the field of technology — they think of Silicon Valley. And that makes sense, because the Northern California region continues to be a hub for technology. But some people are now looking further north when it comes to seeking out areas for tech innovation and development, with particular attention being paid to Toronto. In fact, the internet is full of success stories when it comes to tech startups in Toronto. Recently, the Financial Post reported that “the technology sector alone contributed $117 billion to Canada’s GDP in 2015, with 5.6 per cent of all employees working in the field, according…

    Surprisingly Few Capitalize on IIoT Potential – the Time to Act Is Now

    For all the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to reshape business as we know it, a troubling proportion of today’s business leaders have not yet seized the day, a new study finds. And that opens the door for those with an aggressive stance on IIoT innovation and investments to advance and set themselves apart from their competitors. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the inter-networking via the Internet of connected or smart devices that contribute information to a database. The IIoT, meanwhile, is how this technology applies to non-consumer applications – for things like quality control, sustainability and supply chain efficiency. By 2020, according to projections by…

    Building a Real Estate Practice: How to Make It Financially Between Commissions

    You’re running your own real estate business. The sort of freedom that comes with being your own boss can be very exciting, but the financial challenges involved can be stressful too. For realtors, one of the challenging aspects of maintaining a successful independent real estate practice is the waiting period between when a real estate deal is completed and when a realtor actually gets their commission for the sale. This period is sometimes very long, which can put a real strain on finances, or even slow down other parts of a real estate business, since cash flow that has stalled can put everything else on hold. But, if you are…

    3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Franchise

    For entrepreneurs who want the independence of owning their own business, but may be hesitant about building a brand from scratch, franchising offers the best of both worlds. The right franchising opportunity can be profitable and satisfying for the right entrepreneur, and, add to that, the franchise industry has steadily grown over the last decade. Corporations like McDonald’s, Subway, Tim Hortons and Starbucks are considered industry sure things because their established brands are so strong they offer a high chance of return on investment. There are also smaller franchises that offer profitable returns, but remain more independent than their big name counterparts. Before purchasing a franchise, there are a number…
