We have a wide variety of offerings, mostly based around the writing, podcasting, and blogging of Karl W. Palachuk - the #1 author on managed services for more than a decade.


We offer a variety of FREE promotions that vendors can take advantage of:


Weekly Calendar. In our weekly newsletter (circulation 10,900 and growing) we will publish all in-person events in the SMB and MSP communities. This includes roadshows. As long as it's an in-person event, we'll promote it for for free.


Press Releases. As long as your audience is our audience, we will promote your un-altered press release on Karl's blog at Several organizations send us press releases to be embargoed until a specific date and time. We are totally okay with that.


Free Podcast. The SMB Community Podcast is a video podcast of 30 minutes. Your first appearance on this podcast is 100% free. Try before you buy!


Free Strategy! Too many vendors in this industry just do what everyone else does. And just like an MSP that is constantly paying attention to their competition, the result is that you can't achieve more than those you copy. Let us help you find new and interesting ways to engage MSPs and SMB IT consultants.

Some of our fun and unique opportunities include . . .

* Help you to design and implement a focus group or partner advisory council. Examples: Intel and Zynstra.


* Create a video interview series that you can use for lead generation. Example: SolarWinds MSP.


* Branded book give-aways for lead gen. Examples: Zyxel and SolarWinds MSP.


* Written white papers to be used in lead gen or engagement enhancement. Examples: VSP, EH Media, SolarWinds MSP.


* Customized Roadshows with sponsored content. Examples: Intel and Zynstra.


* Book give-aways in association with keynote speaking. Examples: TechData and Sherweb.


* Extended engagements, including licensed content, video interviews, advertisements, and custom followup. Examples: VSP and SolarWinds MSP


Of course we sell advertising in our weekly newsletter and web sites, but we also have the ability to engage in much more interesting and engaging programs.
