From medical devices to heavy equipment, commercial products, technology, and financial and professional services, business-to-business (B2B) marketing professionals need to position their firms as thought leaders on the issues their buyers face. However, most firms don’t have a process or framework for managing thought leadership marketing initiatives, so they push out product brochures and white papers disguised as thought-leading content. Laura will discuss Forrester’s four-step methodology to develop a thought leadership platform and mobilize the experts in your firm to deliver these ideas through digital, social, mobile, and offline channels.
