<p>Office 365 for Small Businesses</p> <p>Cloud Computing for Mobile Professionals</p> <p>Bruce BaronPartnerAppSolute Consulting GroupYour complete office in the cloud.This presentation is designed to help you lead with Office 365 Small Business Premium to customers with 1-10 users.</p> <p>OPTIONAL INTRO - IF YOU HAVE TIME start with a short video commercial intro.</p> <p>You can use the video file provided as a stand alone or you can go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vn-qSzO_0lg and pull up the video What Office 365 means to me before your event starts. </p> <p>(You need to test it before you try it, in case your facility does not have sound hooked up)</p> <p>Presenter Notes:Introduce yourself , explain briefly what your company does and how it is related to Microsoft. If you have a few minutes, ask some questions to get to know what kind of audience you are working with like who here uses Microsoft tools in their business right now?; How many of you work out of your home?; How many are running the whole business yourself, no employees, just you doing everything?; With these questions, you can tell where your real prospects are in the room. Then, very briefly, talk about yourself not to say how many kids you have or that youre a Packers Fan although relating to your local audience is good but this is more about separating yourself from a brand for just a moment and instead relating to the room as one of them. A small business owner trying to get everything done.</p> <p>Note about this third step Talking about yourself, instead of just about your business, will make a big difference with this audience. Take a moment before you deliver this talk to consider your personal WHY for what you do, and specifically your WHY for presenting to this group. On the surface, it may be to sell more. But go deeper than that and consider what really motivates you. Why did you choose THIS work? If the sell were the WHY you could have chosen anything plumber, ditch digger, banker, lawyer figure out why you are doing this and then, if you can find a simple way to share it with your audience, they will respond with respect and appreciation. They will see themselves in you (assuming your WHY is one of the universal ones we all share) and if they are going to buy anything, it will be with you because you dared to be yourself in front of them. If I could only give one piece of advice about speaking to small businesses it would be this: Be exactly who you are. Dont fake it. Theyll smell the fear, but theyll embrace sincerity whether they agree with you or not.</p> <p>Example: My name is Julie Niehoff, my company is ABC Consulting and weve been a Microsoft partner for 6 years. I work primarily with smaller companies, so people with less than 10 employees and I AM a small business myself so I understand that you are wearing a lot of hats just trying to get everything done. I know that you often are faced with a choice between your personal life and your work life. I am too, but less so over the last few years because Ive started using some of the tools Im going to show you today. </p> <p>IF you used the video, you can also make a play on the What Office 365 Means To Me theme and tell them what it does our would mean to you, using personal references like the ability to go to your daughters soccer game without missing a deadline. Or to get more time at the lake with family instead of working nights thru the weekend.</p> <p>-- And then you need to explain what Office 365 is. Just saying Your complete office in the cloud will scare this audience.They do not really understand what the cloud means but will not feel comfortable saying that out loud. To remove the mystery,It is also a good idea to over-simplify it by saying that it means that you can store your files in a private space online. So what would normally be on your computer, or maybe on your business servers that are networked, you would instead have all of your files in a folder that others in your business can access from anywhere and that means that they login and can then get to the files from a computer, a tablet or a smart phone.4/24/20141Microsoft Office365 2012 Microsoft Corporation.

Youve spent a few minutes relating to the audience as one of them.Quickly go through this slide and use it as a verbal gut check with the group. Get their input. Click once reveal I need an easy way to work from anywhere(recall who raised their hand to say they worked from home and refer back to them as so, for you, this is really important. For all of you it is, but especially those working from homeClick again reveal I want my business to look professional. Use this moment to talk about email service and guide some feedback from the room about their concerns around what might have happened using their current email serviceClick again reveal I want to know my files are available 24/7 without worrying about servers or downtime. Understand that some people in the room do not understand what a server really is. No need to call that out, but just using the word proves your point for those people. They dont want to know what it is and with Office they dont NEED to know. If you have a horror story of someones system going down, share it. Click again reveal I want an affordable solution and you can use this as an opportunity to make a joke if you want tosaying something like anyone want to raise their hand saying they want to pay more than they have to? </p> <p>4/24/20143Microsoft Office365 2012 Microsoft Corporation.
