Lease a Sales Rep named to INC Magazine's Build 100 List of Enduring Job Creators
NEW YORK, October 1, 2013 - Inc. magazine today named LEASE A SALES REP to The Build 100, a new business index that honors an elite tier of companies that have expanded their employment in each of the past five years. The index was created by studying the growth performance of millions of U.S. midmarket companies between 2007 and 2012. This inaugural list celebrates agile, enduring firms across a spectrum of industries, including Coyote Logistics (3,228% workforce growth), HubSpot (709%), and Smilebuilderz (639%), among others.
The Build 100 is not just another business award; it is a predictive tool built on rigorous economic research showing the only statistically significant predictor of a company's future success is sustained job growth over time. Every Build 100 company has added jobs in each of the last five years; a feat worth celebrating in any economic climate.
"We are again humbled to be recognized for our hard work in helping our clients grow their businesses," shared Gilbert Pagan, Founder & CEO of Lease A Sales Rep. Lease a Sales Rep was named to the inaugural Build 100 list with five-year job growth of 300%.
Inc. will unveil the full Build 100 list in its March 2014 issue, and on its affiliate website TheBuildNetwork.com in early 2014. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved employee growth in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Companies founded after 2008, or those with a current U.S. workforce smaller than 85 employees, were not considered. In addition, all Build 100 companies have agreed to participate in a year-long research initiative studying the key drivers of sustained growth.
"72 percent of all new U.S. jobs are created by 1 percent of companies," says Inc. economist-in-residence Gary Kunkle. "The Build 100 represents that top 1 percent of that 1 percent. They should be celebrated, but they must also be studied so that we can better understand - and replicate - the decisions, priorities, investments, and strategies that helped them grow."
The Build 100 is not ranked. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by December 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, for profit, and independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. The minimum number of employees for 2013 is 85; the minimum 2012 revenue was $8.5 million. All Build 100 companies must also agree to participate in a year-long research initiative studying the drivers of sustained growth. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on The Build 100 will be featured in the March 2014 issue on the affiliate website TheBuildNetwork.com.

4 Growth Strategies to Pump Up Your Sales Volume by Gilbert Pagan
as seen in Carolina Business Connection
The good news is that economic indicators have convinced news pundits that the recession is officially over. Along with the recession being officially over, there are many opportunities and doors that have been opened wide. Guess what?? Business growth is following.
What can you do to get your business on the right track and growing with the opportunities available? Concentrate efforts on growing the sales funnel again.
While my inner circle certainly knows that I am a great advocate of cold calling, networking, referral selling, and social media as excellent tools to build a pipeline, they are the tactics of an overall growth strategy.
As the foundation for growing your business successfully, increasing market share through market expansion is a time-tested method used by countless other businesses to achieve growth goals. And, no, IçŸ¥ not crazy to talk about expansion today! Even in better economies, competitors challenge you, customers stray, sales people disappoint. If youæ± e willing to take a small risk, consider something new, can stay focused and switch up your business strategy, you can enter into a new period of growth just as the economy turns around.
