If you’ve attended an ASCII Success Summit in the last few years, I’m sure you’ve run into Herman Pool from Vertical Axion (www.verticalaxion.com).

If you haven’t attended an ASCII Sucdess Success Summit – You Should! Visit asciievents.com for more info.

Vertical Axion helps Managed Service Providers with a variety of marketing programs, including building customized web sites. They also provide syndicated content for your web site – and promote those posts on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. They also help with SEO. In this interview, Herman talks about some of the pitfalls small businesses find with SEO.

Herman also has a great book called One Hour Marketing. I’ve linked to his site so you can find out more.

Best advice snippet: Don’t build your Internet presence on Facebook!! That’s like building on rented land. :-O

I had a great chat with my friend Dave Sobel, Senior Director of MSP Evangelism at SolarWinds MSP. We covered a broad range of future-looking topics – and how they might affect us in the small business space. Dave is an author and former managed service provider.

Note: This is NOT a vendor-centric podcast. Dave is a tremendous thought leader in our community and I’m always happy to catch up with him and talk about where he sees the world of technology headed.

Enjoy the video – and see why Dave has the title Senior Director MSP Evangelism! Also, connect with Dave on social media. All his links are on his about.me page at www.davesobel.com.

I caught up with Michael Siggins, founder and Publisher of ChannelPro Magazine. In addition to covering a bit of the history of ChannelPro magazine, Michael gives us some great information about the ChannelPro events and other resources.

Two cool topics we touched on include the State of the Channel research that was recently released (see link below) and the new IoT Playbook (also linked below). One cool stat from the State of the Channel report is that 44% of MSPs are bringing in more revenue than they did in the previous year. Folks are also broadening their scope and making money with security, IoT, and other offerings.

The IoT (Internet of Things) Playbook is a new resource from ChannelPro to help you learn about the Internet of Things and figure out how to profit from IoT. After all, $1.4 Trillion is expected to be spent on IoT. That’s so big, it can’t all be in the enterprise. There’s plenty of money in the SMB space: How will you get your share?

Side Note: I am doing a three out event before the ChannelPro SMB Forums. I’m bringing my SMB Roadshow to the ChannelPro pre-day. Check out the ChannelPro links below or visit www.smbroadshow.com.
