Although it can be frustrating to not reach someone, it is important to keep trying. Many businesses give up after one missed call and fail to make any additional follow-ups. Persistence is key in becoming a successful managed service provider, and additional phone calls will help your company grow and maximize your customer base. (more…)

Bringing Business Intelligence to Your MSP Marketing

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

MSP MarketingWhen it comes to MSP marketing, you’re going to have a longer sales “cycle.” This means there will be greater periods which are empty of new clients and can be stressful for an MSP. You know that you can’t depend on any single client entirely. You’re going to have some fall through from things like bankruptcy, some will have legal issues, some businesses will be sold and change their data arrangement— the list of things which could undermine your relationship to a client are practically endless.

So an MSP must be sure to continuously acquire clients. One of the best ways to do that is through solid Business Intelligence or BI. You’ve heard of the CIA, right?

MSP MarketingYou Must Know When to Hold and When to Fold

MSP marketing is going to be expensive and what should help you gauge your spending is effectiveness. You’re trying to source the most for the least, and sometimes, that doesn’t mean what it may seem.

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

MSP BusinessCurtailing Turnover

Any MSP business will naturally spend more on employees over time than on even the most expensive equipment. Proof positive: there aren’t many servers which will cost $50,000+ annually. Sure, they may cost $50,000 to purchase, $10,000 to transport, $10,000 to install, and $10,000 a year to maintain. But then you have that server for between two and five years. If you get just two years out of it, you’re looking at $45,000 a year. If you get five years out of it, you’re looking at $24,000 a year. Meanwhile, the tech guy you have maintaining that server will be a bottom-dollar bargain if, including training, benefits, and incidentals, you’re only spending $50,000 on him annually.
