White papers are an essential part of the tech marketer’s toolkit. According to recent UBM Tech research, 69% of technology marketers rate white papers as effective for reaching IT decision makers. From our research, we also know that IT decision makers place a high value on white papers to form the basis of their decision making. They are read regularly and often passed along to colleagues to explain complex ideas or make a business case.

What we know:

  • 41% of technology buyers use white papers weekly or monthly for their jobs
