  Add 30% Profit to Bottom Line

Combining product with services can increase your profitability by 30%. Every time you quote for any hardware or software, add a service option ranging from extended warranty, to managed services to support packages. Build an effective catalog of services and present them at every opportunity.

Ibiz10 automates this process so you can always offer services with all hardware or software quotes. Present comprehensive computer systems with services. Offer financial services to lease the equipment. Add other applications like Autotask to manage and automate your services. Autotask is already integrated with ibiz10 to make the quoting, selling and delivery of both products and services seamless.

Ask for access to a 60-minute web seminar that will present the business case for this strategy. Every VAR should explore this business model and make the right decision. Their future may depend on it!

  Market your business with Social Media and drive traffic to your web store

By now, everyone understands that a business could effectively market their company over the Internet. Search engine placement and triggers like ad-words are all common in today’s marketing campaigns. However, using social media tools to promote their business can be tricky. End-users will ignore all attempts to use social media as a pure advertisement tool. So what is the secret to doing it right?

First you need to have the right strategy and social media tools.  You will need to feed valuable content that will build you as a thought leader in whatever field of expertise that you target. Do not have the high school kid do social media for you cause they know how to use Facebook. Never put your corporate image into the hands of any inexperience person under any circumstance.

We have teamed up with a top Social Media organization to deliver these services to the IT Channel. You can get a free assessment of your social media strategy to give you some feedback. If you have no strategy, we can help you develop one that suits your needs. We can also provide start-up help and training to get you on the right social media track. We can help you on-going if you like.

When you do social media right, it will build your credibility and following. This in turn, will drive end-users to your company and web store.  If both experiences are worthy, these end-users will eventually become customers. Contact us today to start the ball rolling….
