Free Microsoft Joint Marketing Funds for SMB Workshops

Free Microsoft joint marketing funds are available for qualifying partners hosting qualified demos beteween now and the end of June 2022.

The qualifiers are very simple:  for every Microsoft SMB Workshop you host that has at least 5 prospects in attendance, Microsoft will reimburse you US 1500.  If you’re able to secure one new prospect from the workshop, Microsoft will give you another US $500 – for a total of $2000 for each workshop.

UPDATE:  The deadline to complete your application for this program is April 30, 2022!

You can host as many Microsoft SMB Workshops as you wish during the time frame alloted, and there are three workshops to choose from.

DISCLAIMER:  I am sharing information I’ve learned from vendors, distributors and Microsoft partners – our calling agency is not affiliated with Microsoft, and this blog post is my own personal analysis on how to access and use this very attractive marketing funding program!

  3. Outbound calling until we reach eight attendees at one Microsoft SMB Workshop  (assuming 5 attendees and 3 no-shows)

How Do We Suggest You Structure Your Microsoft SMB Workshops?

You’ll want to take advantage of these free Microsoft joint marketing funds before they’re gone!  Here’s how to get the most bang for your (free) buck!

  1. Schedule multiple Microsoft SMB Workshops every week over the course of the remaining time of the offer – this gives prospects options on which date they’d like to attend – remember, these are virtual demos and the content is already created and available for download and review on the Micrsoft website.  The demos must be completed as per the terms of the Microsoft SMB Workshop program – do not modify the programming.
  2. Begin immediately – the offer has been available for months, and the application process ends soon.
  3. Once you have traction with your Managed Sales Pros calling, consider extending your campaign into a traditional lead generation program – with the forward momentum from your first several months of calling, you’re now well on your way to a successful lead generation engagement (our terms are month to month!)
