Our 10 Most Popular MSP Blog Posts of 2020

most popular MSP blog posts 2020

Wrapping up 2020 with a look back at the topics readers flocked to most during a year like no other.

Saying that the past 12 months have been a wild ride is an understatement. However, when it comes to the types of topics and information we saw MSPs seeking out, at a high level, there was a lot of consistency from previous years.

Against the backdrop of Covid, the tectonic shift to WFH, the U.S. election, and more, for MSPs at least, the same primary challenges, themes, and focus areas remained largely unchanged. Readers of our blog came looking for posts that could help them:

  • Stay up-to-date on security
  • Improve their sales and marketing
  • Make their day-to-day jobs easier and more efficient

As we head into the new year, we're proud and thankful for the attention and feedback the blog has received, and we're excited for some big plans we have in store. We'll be keeping our ears to the ground and are dedicated to posting the most relevant and actionable posts you'll find anywhere. We can't do that without feedback from readers, so thank you to everyone who has taken the extra step to reach out with questions, comments, and requests!

With that, let's dive into our most popular blog posts of the year.
