I get people excited about your technology

The vehicles are customer stories, white papers, articles, blogs, and video scripts. A typical engagement looks like this:

  • Meeting to understand your goals: audience, where they are in the sales cycle, and key take-aways.

  • Content gathering, typically interviews.

  • Detailed outline for your team to bless or refine.

  • First draft, written in conversational language with real-world examples.

  • Final copy
