Crafting Next Generation White Papers for Social Media Oriented Reader

Pen and paper

Without a doubt, social media has changed the way we share and absorb online content. Formats that support concise messaging, like Twitter and Facebook, make it easy for today’s reader to quickly scan hundreds of messages. So how do you make traditional marking pieces, like white papers, appealing to today’s short-attention readers?

White Papers 2.0

When it comes to white papers, Jonathan Kantor is one of the foremost experts. Having personally written over 350 B2B white papers, Kantor is also the acclaimed author of the book: “Crafting White Paper 2.0.”

According to Kantor, “if today’s marketers choose to build in elements that appeal to today’s expanding short-attention reading audience, then white papers will remain a strategic part of the B2B marketing toolbox for the foreseeable future.”

In this episode of Mad Marketing TV, join guest host Jeff Ogden of Find New Customers with special guest, Jonathan Kantor, as they discuss:

  • How social media promotes short attention spans
  • Why traditional “all-text” white papers are becoming less effective
  • How to craft a Next Generation “White Paper 2.0” for the Social Media Reader

Also watch from the new show by Jeff Ogden, Marketing Made Simple TV.

LOVE this mobile marketing expert, Christine “CK” Kerley

ipad

I’m deeply passionate about mobile marketing

With an iPhone 4S (with Siri) and an iPad, I’m a big believer that B2B marketers have to face facts that mobile is the first screen of the future.  And the way you communicate with me on my iPhone 4S is different from a laptop.

While I have a casual relationship with a laptop, the iPhone is my personal and intimate partner/lover. She’s the first thing I check when I awaken and she’s never out of my sight.  (Yes, my mobile devices are female.)

Bottom line: Don’t mess with her. Send her SPAM - I unsubscribe. Call her unprepared and I go ballistic. Simply said, you can marketing via a laptop one way, but the mobile platform is different.

My passion for mobile is why I’m such a HUGE fan of Christine “CK” Kerley - the top mobile marketing expert out there.

She’s a powerhouse — full of energy, beautiful, super smart, a terrific speaker and a delightful person - which is as close to the perfect woman I can imagine. Bold, brash, brilliant and beautiful. I simply cannot wait to interview her on Marketing Made Simple TV.

Why don’t you visit CKB2b.com or her mobile site? You can follower her on Twitter at CKSays.

The new, empowered B2B buyer has significantly changed the marketing landscape. Between the ever-expanding ability to research on the Internet — and the economic downturn — executives are left with less free time, yet inundated with a growing list of responsibilities and decisions. In fact a recent survey conducted by DemandGen Report (DGR) showed that:

  • More than 90% of B2B buying purchases start with content engagement; and
  • More than 40% of B2B buyers had their first contact with a solution provider after downloading content from their site.

To effectively speak to prospect and customer needs, progressive marketers are taking a thought leadership approach to align the purpose of solutions and services closely with key goals and objectives.

As these trends emerge, B2B marketers continue to struggle to stay above water with content development, content marketing strategies and how to utilize content to drive demand.

To address the market trends, DGR is proud to announce the first of its kind, B2B Content2Conversion Conference – designed to help B2B marketers not just stay afloat in this sea of content, but to help them produce killer content that in turn produces killer results!
