Most people realize that visual appeal is an important part of website design. Not only do you need great content that tells your story, you also need great images that are relevant, eye-catching, and complement the words on the page.

I Want to Be a VAR When I Grow Up

With so much change in the ERP marketplace and turmoil in the channel over the last few years, it seemed like a good time to dust off an oldie but goodie – the Channel Champions video on YouTube that was posted several years ago.
