& client profile
As increased workloads taxed marketing efforts already consumed with social media, a growing management consulting firm needed expert focus on relationship-building communications in a crowded marketplace for corporate clients. They had tackled a blog and published a book in-house with unremarkable results.

Create a series of thoroughly researched white papers – an unconventional strategy in this space – tackling both everyday and out-of-the-box subjects that speak to managers and/or C-Suite leaders making buying decisions.
Expand popular blogs into white papers, promote white papers with blog posts, and develop blogs into editorial articles leading industry publications.
Compile and reshape white papers into a one-of-a-kind management guidebook.
how we did it
outstanding marketplace presence
Visitors spent twice as long engaged with blog posts - three times as long in some cases. The CEO broke into a leading industry publication and was invited to become a regular contributor. Already-engaged audience members noticed and praised the highly enhanced quality of the second book with comments like, “You brought the fire with this one.”
We figured exactly what tone, subjects, and content lengths worked best, and which were wasting time.
With the voice we honed and platform we built, the firm went on to further repurpose materials into paid webinars offered directly or through valuable organizations in the industries they targeted.
