‘The Big Pitch’ awards an extra £10,000 of marketing funds to innovative resellers

By Phil Lamplugh

It’s very exciting times here at Westcoast. On top of two huge promotions, we’re also looking to provide some extra funds for some great Microsoft marketing ideas. This is all a part of an initiative we’re calling ‘The Big Pitch’.

It basically works like this:
  • You have an amazing idea for a Microsoft marketing campaign, but you just don’t quite have the budget…
  • You then visit our dedicated web page and download the application form.
  • Submit the application form with details of your campaign and funding requirements (anything up to £10,000).
  • We get back to you to let you know if your successful or not, and then you carry out your campaign.
Some of you might remember The Big Pitch from late last year – at that point the maximum amount of funding available to pitch for was £5000, and only campaigns around Office and Microsoft were accepted. Not only have we doubled the maximum amount of funding that you could pitch for, but this time we’ve opened it up to the whole of the Microsoft product library.

I speak for the whole of the Microsoft Team here when I say that we’re really looking forward to seeing all of the engaging ideas that you can all come up with. By the way, don’t be reluctant about applying because you think that there’s only one lump of funding available. This definitely isn’t the case, and we’ll be looking to support as many of you as possible.

For more information about The Big Pitch and to get involved visit the web page to download the application form and the terms and conditions. The deadline for entries is the 10th of March, with all activity having to be completed by the 12th of May.

Good luck!
