Happy Monday folks, Another week, another good batch of updates and fun stuff to talk about in the business world. Let’s jump in: Trying a new/fun marketing strategy for Visto It was definitely a slower week. While summer is usually a bit slower here, we’ve managed to have a pretty strong few months on the business front. But something about last week was just very quiet. Lots of vacation auto-responders, voicemails, etc. Did you have the same? And that’s okay, because it’s just the name of the game at certain times of the year. Also gives you time to catch up on other stuff that’s been lower ..read more

Happy Monday folks, summer continues to fly by, with a lot of exciting times too. Let’s jump in: A very valuable networking event and new sales “strategy” We had another good week on the tech front. Even though summer tends to slow things down a bit here in Canada – on the business side – our revenue curve continues up and to the right. Also had a cool discovery this week. Which is that the government offers a grant for SMBs to help them implement new tech, that we (Visto) are likely eligible for. Or in other words, the government offers free money to our clients to implement software like ou ..read more

Happy Monday folks, Back to the regular Monday morning grind update since last weeks travel debacle. (And in case you missed my email last week, you can read about my 7.5 hour overnight drive home here) Let’s jump in: Growing pains for a small tech company It’s been a good summer for us so far. We continue to focus on adding in new features for our immigration platform, Visto, and onboarding new clients.

Hey folks, Had quite the adventure trying to get home from a trip this past weekend (read below) hence the major delay in this email (as you know it usually goes out Monday morning). Let’s jump in: An adventure back from America So this past weekend I spent in New York visiting some very good friends. We usually go for a visit every summer. The problem? Airlines kind of suck these days. And last weekend, 2 of my friends had flights cancelled to/from New York due to weather. Not a good sign. Our flight there was totally fine, but our trip home was a bit of a mess. As I always insist on, we got ..read more

Happy Monday folks, Been another busy week in the immigration + tech cofounder world of mine. Let’s jump in: Building tech businesses and online audiences We had another pretty good week over at Visto, as we continue to focus on adding more features and clients to our immigration tech platform. The pieces really feel like they’re fitting together well, so it’s a matter of how we want to continue to scale it. While getting a tech company off the ground has been much harder than non-tech – from my experience – I think my overly simplified guide would be: find an underserved market that is will ..read more
