Are you using the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) Customer Rewards Offer with your SMB customers yet? If not, here is a great opportunity for all of you partners focusing on SMB customers to drive adoption of online services through the Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) Customer Rewards Offer, which provides partner subsidy funds to qualifying customers to use with YOU, their Microsoft partners! For those of you familiar with the way the former “Big Easy” promotion ran where customers received subsidy checks that they then gave to their Microsoft partners for additional partner services, software sales, hardware sales, etc., the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Services Customer Rewards Offer works in a similar manner.
Through this offer from the Microsoft U.S. Team, qualifying customers can receive up to the equivalent of 50% of their first annual Microsoft Online Services subscription fee in partner subsidy funds. Customers can then redeem their subsidy checks with the registered Microsoft Partner Network member of their choice for things like follow-on license, hardware or services purchases.
