Thought Leadership Marketing

Once you have a compelling idea, you need to get it to the executives who are potential buyers of your products or services. This used to be done by publishing hard copy white papers and journals, and more recently by publishing them on line. But the world of thought leadership marketing is changing very rapidly today.

Second, new tools and channels such as e-readers and social networks are continually throwing up new challenges and opportunities.
