"You don’t want to over saturate people with ‘Look at me!’ messages. You want to give people information and engage them in dialogue, thereby offering an incentive for them to follow you.” 

A recent poll shows that 85 percent of Canadian small business owners felt optimistic about the future success of their business and most of them planned on expanding in the next three years, according to Leger Marketing.
