Microsoft Partner Sales and Marketing Online Community

I was hesitant to blog about this new project from Microsoft, as when I and some other partners were invited to participate earlier this year it was only in the early stages of testing and probably not ready to accept a flood of Microsoft Partners signing up! I’ve since spoken to outgoing SBSC Channel Marketing Manager Jen Brinton (bye Jen, we’ll miss you!) and Judith Wilson-Brown at Microsoft, and have been given permission to "blab away" (as Judith so nicely put it).

I’ve also seen some other blogs mentioning this new Community site going from alpha testing to "public ready" recently, so if you’re a Microsoft Partner and haven’t heard about it already – it’s worth taking a look.

Judith also mentions that partners are looking, but not contributing on the site. Now knowing the Partner Community as I do, I’ve never known my peers to be a quiet bunch – rather completely the opposite – so don’t hesitate to get stuck in guys and girls! 🙂


Your Invitation to join the Partner Sales and Marketing online Community

I would like to invite you to join a new Sales and Marketing online Partner network. The Sales and Marketing network aims to provide a virtual community for Microsoft’s Partners to engage and work collaboratively to increase their success.

It’s really easy to access and participate in this new online network, simply:

1. Go to the Partner Community home page

2. Sign-in using your Windows Live ID that you use to access other partner programme benefits

3. Access the Sales and Marketing network from the list on the left hand side

4. Click ‘Join’ in the top right hand side of the Sales and Marketing home area

Once you’ve accessed and joined the network please add your views to the online discussions, share documents with other members, and read the latest announcements. You can even create your own blog! When you’ve created your profile don’t forget to add your picture – it’s really important in social networking I’ve learnt!

If you have problems accessing the site please email Jude Wilson-Brown or Daniel Langton. You can find Windows Live ID information to help you here. If you need further support and information on the Partner Community – visit the ‘On-site’ help and support community.

What is the Partner Community?

The Partner Community is a group of networks set up and managed by individuals, partner organisations, and Microsoft employees. The Community enables members to communicate, share documents, and connect with others members and with Microsoft. The goal is to help us all do business more effectively and efficiently.
