White Papers

If you’re developing a new product or service, consider writing a white paper (or case study) to raise its profile and generate publicity in the process. White papers don’t need to be long. Most are five to ten pages. It’s about two days work.

I can help you:

I’ve developed white papers for IBM and Intel that positioned them as innovators, thought leaders, and experts in their fields.

Would white papers help your marketing efforts? If so, send me an outline of what you’d like to achieve, who you want to target, and when you want to start.
