Become an SBSC! (Free Exam Vouchers)

February 11, 2010 – 2:10 pm
  • Do you sell to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs)?
  • Do you provide your SMB customers with Microsoft technologies and related services?
  • Do you want to differentiate yourself in your marketplace?

If you answered “Yes,” have you considered joining the Microsoft Small Business Specialist Community (SBSC), a group of 6,500 trusted technology advisors focused on selling to Small Business customers. Benefits of joining include access to exclusive marketing dollars, recognition from displaying the SBSC logo, support from an Online Technical Community, and increased exposure to partners and customers through the Microsoft Partner Finder and Solution Finder.

As an SBSC Advisory Council member, let me tell you why I am part of this Community.  Proving my company not only has the technical skills necessary to serve small businesses but the understanding of how technology must be applied differently than as the one-size-fits-all mentality applied to most larger business solutions. The Small Business Specialist competency shows our customers we “get” small business.

You too can become a Small Business Specialist in just 2 easy steps, as an Action Pack Subscriber:

1. Take a Small Business Sales and Marketing Skills Assessment
2. Pass one of five technical exams

Currently, Microsoft is offering a 100 percent off voucher applicable to exams 70-653: TS: Windows Small Business Server 2008, Configuring and 70-654: TS: Windows Essential Business Server 2008, Configuring. Alternatively, we are offering a 50 percent off exam voucher to complete the other three exams.

Call 877-254-6825 or send a message to by March 15, 2010 to pick up your voucher, and an expert agent will guide you through the sign-up process.

    Where did you get this information?
    I’m on what I think is ALL the Microsoft Comunications, and yet this is the first I’ve heard about this.. Can you share your Source on this? because I’d like to be in the same Loop… (As I’m sure others would be also.) Thanks - Russ AT

  4. Hi Russ,
    I sit on the US SBSC Advisory Board for Microsoft. Microsoft sent this information out to all US Registered and Certified partners that are NOT SBSC members already.
