Get Listed on Pinpoint
Step 1: Join the Microsoft Partner Network
To list on Pinpoint, you must belong to the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN). Your first step is to create an account with MPN.
Are you enrolled in MPN but don’t see your profile on Pinpoint? You may need to associate your Microsoft account (formerly Windows Live ID) with your MPN membership. Learn how to resolve this and other issues that can hold up publishing.
When You Enroll in MPN…
Opt to be included in Microsoft directories. You will be asked specifically whether or not you want to be included.
Write a succinct Company Overview. In 20 to 250 words, include the following:
- Your company’s expertise.
- Software applications and professional services you want to promote.
- The benefit or benefits of what you offer.
Follow the Pinpoint Profile Guidelines to ensure your overview can be approved for publication on Pinpoint.
Tip: Include succinct keywords and phrases to improve readability and search rankings. Read more about keywords.
How Long Will It Take?
It typically takes up to three business days for MPN enrollment information to migrate to the Pinpoint Dashboard. After this time, you can log in to the Pinpoint Dashboard to check the status of your Company Overview and to make any necessary changes. (Note that you will be prompted to complete a Pinpoint New User Signup form the first time you log in.)
New information may take up to 15 business days to appear on the Pinpoint live site. Time to publish may vary for different countries. Learn more about profile publish times.
If you have questions, contact the Pinpoint team.
Once your Company Overview is published on Pinpoint, go to Step 2 to list your software applications and professional services.
