In true “nerd princess” style I combed through the full eXtreme365 Orlando schedule and made a list of just the important parts that apply to me as a marketer. This includes the blocks of time that I need in my calendar AND just the Marketing and Sales sessions. Check it out here:
What if you could go to an event that is focused 100% on sessions for Microsoft Dynamics Partners but STILL have the chance to mingle with your customers and go to the full User Group Summit expo? Now you can. Fly down to Orlando Saturday night, fly home Thursday morning, and you get it all. Just take advantage of a legal loophole...the overlap days of eXtreme365 and User Group Summit 2019. Find out how….
Back in 2009 Dave Foreman and I had an idea. I am very proud that this year we can celebrate the ten year anniversary of the success of that idea. We are grateful to all the Microsoft Dynamics ERP Partners that have supported the site over the years. Our members are the real reason the site has been so successful. All of us, together, are truly “using the power of the group.” The ERP Software Blog proves that one good idea has the power to change your life! So just keeping brainstorming.
How many referral leads has Microsoft sent to you lately? None? Are you sure? It is possible that there are leads sitting out there in your Microsoft Partner Center account and you don’t even know it. There are 3 ways you can get leads from Microsoft Partner Center. Here are the steps to make sure you receive those referrals (leads) and respond in a way that makes Microsoft happy, (so they will send you more leads.)
Another marketer recently told me that she missed a bunch of lead referrals from Microsoft because there was typo in the email address on their Microsoft Partner Center (formerly Pinpoint) profile. Once she fixed the typo she received 3 leads in less than a week. If you are like me you are saying, “Wait, what? I want to get leads from there too!” It took me some time to figure it all out so consider this your “cheat sheet” to find out how to check and edit your Microsoft Partner Center business profile.
Pam Misialek started her career right out of college as one of the very first interns at Great Plains Software. She thought she would stay with Great Plains until it was not fun anymore, and then she would move on. Little did she know that she would become an integral part of this product and stay with the company for the next 22 years – during many fun and not so fun times. Until her next big adventure began. But let’s start this backstory even earlier. Back to the days of space camp, Dear Doug letters and science fiction novels……
Social Media is a great way to connect with others, share ideas and promote your brand during User Group Summit Phoenix. Sadly, this year I will not be attending, but I will be with you “remotely” and keeping up with all the news thanks to Twitter.
It will be a busy event for all of you “on the ground” so here are a few tips to make it easier to tweet, post and promote.
Do your referral partners feel confident that you value the leads they give you? I am not talking about giving them money. There are other ways to thank them. I feel that one of the best, and cheapest, things you can give them, to prove that you deserve their leads, is information. This is what I mean....and how I know it works.
When her hands stopped working and her mind was a bit fuzzy from the pain medication my friend Brooke Webb Smith asked me to write her backstory. I had no idea that this backstory would actually be her obituary. And a tribute to a life that was cut short too soon. These thoughts are hers, she just used my hands to tell the story.
This tip is so simple it’s scary. But I rarely see anyone else do it. First, let me ask you this, as an ERP/CRM partner, why do you put videos on YouTube? It’s not because you hope to be the next YouTube video star. It’s because you want to drive traffic, hopefully prospects, back to your website to learn more about your company and buy your product.
