and Content That Compels Leads to Act!

(even though you don't have a degree in English or haven't had formal copywriting training)

The content you provide and make available is CRITICAL to the success of your internet marketing efforts.  It's got to be relevant, interesting, and timely for your leads.  Developing a content strategy requires an ability to listen to your leads, and mapping content to the buying stages so you can pull your leads through the process and develop relationships with them until they are ready for a sales-conversation.

This does not need to be difficult. You already know more about your leads and your market than you think.

Excellent Copywriting Courses:

Perry Marshall's Free 5-Day 'Writing Whitepapers' Course

If you sell any kind of complex service, technology or sophisticated product, a White Paper is the best way to educate your customers about that technology.

You can use a white paper to build your credibility, get free exposure in the press, attract new customers, and drive new technology into change-resistant, conservative markets.

Most white papers are either too technical (boring) or too commercial (thin and cheesy) - but Perry Marshall has written a guide that shows you how to strike the perfect balance.  

But what's most important of all, though, is promoting and publicizing your white paper - because the best white paper in the world is no good unless somebody reads it!
