The passing of Memorial Day usually means the beginning of summer, complete with road trips, cold lemonade, and picturesque sunsets. For the savvy cloud service provider, managed service provider, or value-added reseller, this summer also means attending Cloud University, a free interactive workshop organized by Ingram Micro, focusing on how to create a sales funnel and generate new sales prospects.
With research firm IDC projecting the global cloud computing market expected to double by 2018 to $127 billion, the opportunity to capitalize is here. If you’re a VAR, MSP, or CSP still sitting on the fence and wondering whether Cloud University is worth your time investment, look no further. Here are 5 reasons to attend Cloud University this summer and send your practice into overdrive.
- Discover how to create a sales funnel and generate new sales prospects.
We get it, you’re passionate about your business, and in order to stay in business, you need to sell. That’s why Cloud University is built around teaching you how to create a sales funnel and generate new sales prospects. When you attend, not only will you learn about the types of sales funnels that exist, but also what cloud business models are right for your customer.

Don’t want to travel a long way to learn? Not a problem. We’ll be all over the United States in cities like Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Feel free to cross jet lag off the list of things to worry about when you get home.
