WhitepapersWhitepapers are informational documents that web visitors can download to learn about a subject, product, process, etc. Companies often use white papers for lead generation, as these pieces of content are often detailed and unique to the company that produced it. Depending on your sales process, your company can require users to fill out a form to access the content, or the white paper can be offered without registration. An average length of a white paper is around 7-10 pages.
eBooksE-books are very similar to white papers in that they are informational and are available to download on a website or blog. Companies may offer the document in exchange for contact information, or they can choose to offer without registration The key difference between an e-book and a white paper is length and detail. E-books contain more information, pictures, links, etc. than a white paper. The average length is 30-50 pages.
Blog PostsBlog posts allow you to establish your expertise and credibility by becoming a best-selling author at a fraction of the cost of publishing a book.
