Content Marketing in 60 Seconds: eBooks

While whitepapers will usually pack just as much information, an eBook has an added benefit: it’s sexier.

While it may not be appropriate for every situation, having an eBook is a great idea for companies looking to diversify their content offerings. For more on authoring an eBook, watch the full video from OpenView Labs.
