Contribute To Business Solutions Magazine
Very Important!!! Please Read:
Before submitting anything or contacting anyone at Business Solutions, be sure you have a full understanding of the Business Solutions audience. Our magazine's audience is made up of VARs, ISVs, MSPs, and integrators. Our articles are written to help those readers grow their business. If your company sells to end users directly and doesn't sell through VARs, MSPs, or integrators, Business Solutions is the WRONG magazine for you and contacting us is a waste of time. Additionally, we have no interest in interviewing or writing an article/case study on an end user. Rather, we interview the VARs, MSP, ISV, or integrator on how they found the customer, solved their problem, and made money. In short, Business Solutions is all about the solutions provider, not the end user.
Finally, check out "18 Tips For Writing Content That VARs Will Love" to maximize anything you plan on writing for the Business Solutions audience.
