Partnering With Peers For Growth

Kevin Royalty

Listen to today’s episode HERE.

Karl welcomes Kevin Royalty, from Total Care Computer Consulting, to our show today. Kevin is a longstanding Microsoft MVP, Moderator on the SpiceWorks’ Small Business Server and Server Essentials Forum, and leader in the MSP community.

Kevin was featured in the January edition of ChannelPro magazine in an article entitled A How-To Guide for Partnering With Peers (Jan 2015, P. 20).

Kevin talks with Karl about the value of partnering with fellow MSPs. He says it is a mistake to loose site of how powerful working with fellow MSPs can be, despite the fact that those same MSPs may have overlap with your services and technically be “the competition”.

Karl and Kevin share a number of specific examples of how such partnering has worked for them over the years in running their managed services businesses. They both agree that some kind of partnering is vital for an MSP, otherwise you will seriously confine your growth.

Bob gives a thorough comparison between Stamps.com and PB Smart Postage (a Pitney Bowes-Brother Label Printers partner service) following his experience in investigating what could be a handy and professional postage tool for his business.
