Why have white papers become a premier business-to-business marketing tool?
White papers have shown themselves to be strong lead-generation tools. They differentiate a company, in part because they provide value before an engagement and do so in an educational, unbiased way. White papers are especially useful in business-to-business environments to nurture growing relationships characteristic of a longer sales cycle, build visibility, credibility, and relationships. They support growth over the long term and can be especially effective in highly competitive industries by bringing perspective to issues or providing new information that demonstrates a company’s expertise and willingness to share knowledge.
Research has shown, for example, that more than 85 percent of information technology executives surveyed find white papers to be helpful and more than 50 percent say white papers have influenced their buying decisions.
