Looking for an Opportunity to Prospect

Have you heard of the Microsoft LET team. LET stands for Local Engagement Team and their mission in life is to help SMB partners connect with small businesses. To that end, they are rolling out a great program that just may be of interest to you.

How Microsoft can help Jump Start Your Prospecting

Are you a Microsoft Partner? If you are, Microsoft will agree to sponsor up to 5 local Chamber of Commerce events at any Chamber of Commerce you choose to work with by furnishing up to 5 copies of a Microsoft Software Package (Microsoft Office, MSFT Streets And Trips, SBA, etc) to you to be used as raffle prizes at these Chamber Events.

This is a tremendous way for you to generate leads for your products and services as you collect business cards or registration forms for these raffles!

Erick Simpson of MSP University is hosting a webinar with special guest Michael "MJ" Murphy, Business Development Manager, Microsoft. Together they'll discuss how to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity from Microsoft.

To register go to this link:

All you need to do as a Microsoft Registered, Certified or Gold Partner to receive this benefit is agree to attend each Chamber Event and conduct the raffle of the Office Prize. This gets you in front of local business, demonstrates your relationship with Microsoft and builds your credibility in your local markets - YOU WIN!

When marketed with your local Chamber of Commerce, this acts as a hook, creating fresh buzz around the Chamber events and driving attendance - THE CHAMBER WINS!

The Chamber helps get the word out about Microsoft software and its sponsorship of the event - MICROSOFT WINS!

Wow, I've heard of win-wins before, but this is a 3-way win!

I have worked with the LET team and they are a great group that is committed to help ussucceed. They have other ideas too, so reach out and get involved with your local rep. Now more than ever it is networking with people that helps us win business. Take a listen to this webcast, get involved and make things happen!
