$500 Marketing Development Funds for Microsoft Small Business Specialists

SBPIUS You may recall my ”Not only is SBSC staying, it is THE Small Business designation in the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN)” post back in May where I told you that Microsoft is not only keeping the Microsoft Small Business Specialist (SBSC) designation in the new Microsoft Partner Network launching in October, 2010, but it is our primary designation for partners focusing in the SMB segment (with the Midmarket Solution Provider competency also available for those who focus on the Midmarket segment too).  Well, the U.S. Team has just announced a great offer for the Microsoft Small Business Specialist (SBSC) partners located within the United States to earn marketing development funds directly from Microsoft.

According to the U.S. Team, these marketing development funds are available for you to drive demand generation efforts through Ready-to-Go Marketing (includes Events, Campaigns, and various Marketing Services).  Here are some of the details behind this promotion:
