I want to give 24 of you $10,000 each. Just tell us why it should be you…


That’s right.  We are giving away $10,000 in marketing funds to twenty-four of our Microsoft Small Business Specialist Partners between now and the end of June 2007 in our “Growing Small Business Together” contest to help drive new business opportunities for you.  All you have to do is tell us about a success story you have had in implementing Microsoft solutions for one of your Small Business customers.  If your story is selected by the contest judges as one of the best submitted, you win.


Here’s what’s in it for you:


  • Marketing funds to help you grow your business—$10,000 awarded* to 24 SBSC partners who submit the best solutions.

  • An opportunity to have your case study published on Microsoft websites and used in PR campaigns.

  • Get product training on all small business products—how to sell them, how to install them, and how to support them.

  • Training on how to use the Technology Assessment Toolkit to drive sales and grow your business.


This contest is open only to Microsoft Registered, Microsoft Certified and Microsoft Gold Certified Partners who are actively enrolled in the Small Business Specialist Community program with a Microsoft Partner Program Number and located within the 50 United States (includes the District of Columbia).


Want to learn more or submit your entry?  Simply log in to the SBSC Exclusive Website and click the “SBSC Growing Small Business Together Contest” link under the “Increase Opportunities” header.


Good luck to each of you and be sure to submit as many of your success stories as you have.  


Thank you and have a wonderful day,
