Untangle Please join me this Wednesday January 28th @ 11am PST as I present a Webinar hosted by our friends at Untangle:

Topic: How to Market and Sell Managed Services During Economic Downturns  
2009 looks to be another year of belt-tightening for businesses, with the recession now a reality as markets decline and stock indexes hover near their lowest levels since the 1980's. How will our economic outlook affect Managed Services Providers, and what can we do to weather the next 12 months to grow our businesses and become more profitable than we were in 2008? In this session I will discuss how to reduce costs, increase revenue and leverage existing client relationships in order to sell more solutions as a Trusted Advisor during times of economic uncertainty.

During this timely Webcast the discussion will focus on how the recession will affect your customers and prospects, and what you can do to weather the next 12 months to grow your business and become more profitable than in 2008.  

This discussion will include 10 key takeaways that will help you  increase your profits in 2009 and beyond.
