Bring your business into the 2020s

Cloud Services in a Month is a no-nonsense guide to building an extremely profitable cloud service business focused on small business. This guide is filled with practical and click-by-click advice. Based on author Karl Palachuk’s experience over more than a decade selling cloud services.
Palachuk spells out all the details you need to build a bundled offering of services he calls the Cloud Five-Pack™. In addition to describing all the details of building a unique offering, this book includes dozens of downloadable checklists.

Rather than seeing “cloud services” as a replacement for managed services, Palachuk shows you how to combine cloud services and managed services into the the Killer Combo that will become your business model for the 2020’s.
