I know it’s rather bold for me to presume that I completely know what it’s like to be a VAR, especially in the SMB business in the current NYMetro market, so I write this post a little tongue in cheek. The intention behind the title is simply to let the VARs know what I, as their all-knowing-all-seeing-NYMetro-Microsoft Partner Territory Manager (again, tongue-in-cheek), think is a great promotion or important development or valuable update in the NYMetro Microsoft SMB business.
Today, I would encourage all VARs out there to keep in mind that there are only 4 days left to close a deal that qualifies for Big Easy dollars. (see www.microsofincentives.com). Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get your customer more $$ to spend with you. I know what you’re thinking – “You’re going to bring it back in Q4/extend it another month” but several little birds have confirmed that this is indeed the last week of the Great Microsoft Stimulus Package (as I like to call it). At least until FY11.
