Guest post by Tina Hanson, Partner-to-Partner Lead for the Microsoft U.S. Partner Team.

Tina Hanson (Parkhouse) 2011Thanks to all the U.S. partners attending Worldwide Partner Conference last month who stopped by the Microsoft Pinpoint profiling labs to create or enhance their profile on Microsoft Pinpoint, our technology marketplace and directory of Microsoft IT provider services and software. I hope it was time well spent for you, and that you’ve recently refreshed your profile based on what you learned.

If you are a regular reader of this U.S. Partner Team blog, you are aware that I write a blog series about the partner-to-partner (“P2P”) connection. P2P is a significant part of my job, and helping partners connect to each other is an important aspect of the vast and diverse Microsoft partner ecosystem. As the U.S. lead for Pinpoint, the customer-to-partner (“C2P”) connection—helping partners successfully use Pinpoint so customers can find their solutions and connect with them—is also an important part of my responsibilities. Starting next month, I will answer common questions U.S. partners have about Pinpoint here on this blog, plus share news and information I think will be useful to you and help you increase the visibility and success of your Pinpoint profile.

I look forward to hearing your great questions about Pinpoint and helping you increase your profile’s success!
