SolarWinds MSP Launches Networking Community for MSPs
SolarWinds MSP has launched a new peer-to-peer networking community for managed service providers to share knowledge, tips and advice with fellow service providers through educational content and videos.
The MSP Advice Project showcases solution providers’ experiences during their business life cycle, lessons they have learned and advice on how to overcome common business challenges. The content covers topics such as technical issues, marketing tips, sales support and how to get started in business.
Mike Cullen, SolarWinds MSP‘s vice president of customer experience and business strategy, tells Channel Futures that through his company’s events like Empower MSP and its day-to-day contact, “we listen to our partners and this is a piece of that listening exercise.
“At SolarWinds we believe in empowerment of the community,” he said. “We hear more and more from our customers and the community as a whole that sharing learning experiences and best practices is the key to success. This initiative was driven by that.”
The networking community focuses on all business models, including break-fix, hybrid, MSP and the IT professional.
“Our partners have shared their expertise and tips to encourage and support these businesses, from the one-person shops all the way to 100-plus employee powerhouses, to help them to succeed,” Cullen said. “We are in the process of developing our online community forum that will complement the MSP Advice Project content, giving members the opportunity to post questions, provide answers and interact with advice and tips in real time.”
“We are delighted to be a part of the MSP Advice Project,” said Bruce Lach, president of Success Computer Consulting. “We have been in business for over 20 years and feel it’s important to share insightful business advice and support with our peers to help make their business vision become a reality. No matter how long you have been in the market, we believe every MSP can continue to learn something new every day, and the MSP Advice Project equips visitors with that knowledge in one location.”
