Do you want to know what most MSPs have in common when it comes to video strategy? Most of them don’t have one! You see Brandi on Facebook, you saw her on your welcome video, and you see her Virtually. Brandi has developed a Video Strategy Guide to assist you with creating an excellent, strategic, targeted video. Additionally, you will learn how to use that video and repurpose the video.
During the next three days, you will have the chance to film your video in our CharTec Studio with our CharTec videographer, but you must reserve your spot now as there are only 25 available.

Cloud computing trends continue to show year-over-year growth, making Cloud and Managed Services one of the fastest growing segments in the IT industry. According to Report Linker, the global cloud computing market is set to exceed $330 billion in 2020 and expected to reach $623.3 billion by 2023. In 2019, IDC named the US as the most significant public cloud market with approximately one third of companies’ IT budgets going to cloud services. In fact, public cloud spend and adoption is growing three times faster than private cloud usage because of SMB demand for access to data everywhere.
