An in-depth report on an issue that can be used to increase awareness, drive policy, or motivate the reader to take a specific action.
The estimate we provide will be customized to fit your particular needs and may vary accordingly.
In addition to copy, whitepapers may require additional images, design and branding work - this will be outlined in your free estimate.
Printing, binding and shipping is available upon request and priced seperately.
Our standard agreement requires 50% of the agreed-upon estimate at the commencement of work, and the remaining 50% upon completion, at which point all work is transferred to you.
Flexible payment options are available.
Whitepapers usually take 4 - 6 weeks to complete.
Need it in a hurry? Let us know and we will do our best! All rush requests are handled on a case-by-case basis.
Whitepapers vary in length, but share the same characteristics:
are based on factual, well-documented evidence
describe a particular problem, issue, or circumstance
discuss solutions to the problem - actual or conceptual
explore the philosophy that drives the solution
How it works . . .
We structure your whitepaper according to the issue that you would like to address and the product or service you are proposing as the solution to the reader.
Your free, initial consultation will explore the following:
the nature of your business
the subject matter, or 'issue' at hand
the amount of independent research you have done to date
your target audience
your desired outcomes
(This isn't about checking to see if you have all the answers, it's finding out exactly where you are in the development process so we can be of the most use to you in meeting your objectives.)
Once we have determined a baseline for your business, your timing, your goals, and your research and work to date, we will provide a detailed estimate of the project rate and timing, as well as a list of the remaining information that we will need from you - the one who knows your business the best.
When you are ready to move forward, we take all of the answers you have provided and gather additional information as necessary to create an informative, rock-solid whitepaper.
