It’s Official… Microsoft Small Business Specialist Community is now live!

Are you a Partner that focuses on serving the needs of Small Businesses? Ever wish you had a way to distinguish yourself as someone with the skills and focus to serve the Small Business customer segment? Well, your wait is over…

Microsoft is proud to announce the Small Business Specialist Community for our Partners! For those Partners here with us here at Worldwide Partner Conference in Minneapolis, MN, be sure to stop by Booth #837 to get your information on how to be a part of this exciting new Partner offering (I’ll be in the booth from 3:00 – 5:00 today for anyone interested). For those Partners not down here with us, go to: to learn more and to start down the path to being a part of this Community designed just for you. There you will find a link to “Learn about Microsoft’s Small Business Specialist Community,” which will show you:

1) What are the benefits?
2) What do you need to do to enroll?
3) Where do you sign up?

It was great talking to all of the Partners at the Small Business Specialist reception last night here at WPC and learning more about all of you. I appreciate all of the time each and every one of you took to speak with me and sharing all you did about your companies and the passion you have for this segment. The excitement about this is clear and we at Microsoft are looking forward to focusing on the Small Business segment with you now and in the future!

Thank you and have a wonderful day,

Eric Ligman
