Lessons Your MSP Business Can Learn from Marvel Superheroes

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

msp busienss“Bye” Thor’s Hammer!

Your MSP business can learn a lot from both the character arcs of protagonists in Marvel’s film depiction of the comic book universe and the success of the film series itself. First, let’s look at one of the most iconic Avengers, Thor.

Thor is an extraterrestrial from the celestial kingdom of Asgard who has supernatural abilities owing to his heritage. He makes a few mistakes and finds himself banished to Earth, with his “Mjolnir,” or magic hammer, revoked. Soon, this demigod has a culture shock: the feeling of essential mortality. What he’s got to learn is how to be a “good guy” without running around with a magic hammer smacking the baddies into oblivion. (more…)

Does Your MSP Business Website Factor in Lazy Prospects?

MSP BusinessWorking with Customers on Their Terms

Your MSP business is going to encounter many different types of clients. Some of them aren’t going to operate on the kinds of timetables you are used to or ones that may ultimately be the most profitable for all parties concerned.

Consider this: those who are searching for something on the web may be less inclined to engage in close exploration. The web is convenient, and clients using it to source things like MSP support are likewise hunting for convenience. Maybe it’s fair to call them lazy, maybe not. However, what you’re likely to experience is users of this type taking very little time to look at your site before moving on. Accordingly, you don’t want to give such potential leads any reason to waste time. Contact details should be immediately available. It may even make sense to have a digital pop-up bot that interacts when a newcomer accesses your page. Be careful, though; these things can be irritating if they’re not properly managed. (more…)

Can Your MSP Business Learn from ‘the Emperor’s New Groove’?

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

MSP BusinessAn MSP business could be compared to a ship on the high seas. Sometimes, the wind is up, and the sales are full. Sometimes, the waters are calm and forward motion is slow. Sometimes, a storm kicks up and knocks the vessel off course. The leader of an MSP has many qualities that are like a captain. He’s looked up to by everyone on the team, and the way this individual’s personal conduct is communicated will impact the entire operation.

A good and fun way to understand this might be through a brief review of Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove. In this film, David Spade plays an emperor who is turned into a llama. Where once the king was proud and arrogant, as a llama, such arrogance cannot be tolerated. This character’s name is Kuzco, and through an adventure across South American jungles with a man named Pacha, Kuzco comes to understand the plight of his people. His perspective changes accordingly. At the end of the film, he has been humbled. (more…)
