"Partner Plunge" contest just announced at SMB Nation

imageHere’s a brand new contest exclusively for Microsoft Small Business Specialists that was just announced during the keynote session at SMB Nation!  The premise behind the contest is very similar to the “Partners in Paradise” contest run by Microsoft two years ago.  The top prize…  A multi-day Grand Canyon Colorado River Raft trip for you and your team!  And the best part, the tab is picked up by Microsoft!  I can tell you this, when we host a trip, we do it right…

This trip is bound to be a ton of fun for everyone involved and a time away you won’t soon forget.  So how do you enter and win?  We’ll be launching the website with full details in late October/early November; however, it will be based on SBSC Partners submitting their success stories of how they helped small businesses get the most from Microsoft technology.  All submissions will be judged and the top rated submission will win the trip.

Here’s a few quick tips that might help you out:

1. Maximizing the use of MS products in the solution is bound to help out (the more applications included, the more complete the stack – the better your story you’ll probably have to tell)

2. Displacing competitive products/solutions can only help your success story

3. Partnering with other SBSC Partners (increasing the revenue) may help add some uniqueness to your success story as well.

Good luck to all of our SBSC Partners and be sure to submit your success stories for your chance to win!

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
