Custom Articles and White Papers for Publication

  • Need a high-quality, full-length article... but don't have the time to do it in-house?
  • Got an editorial opportunity you don't want to pass up?
  • Want to make a great impression in your favorite magazine, blog, or journal?

That's what we do. For more than 20 years, Silicon Insider founder Jim Turley has been writing award-winning articles that earn praise and make an impression. But most importantly, they get read. From articles and editorials to backgrounders, tutorials, and opinion pieces we've got your editorial needs covered. Look to us for:

  • Product announcements
  • New-product introductions
  • White papers
  • Press backgrounders
  • In-depth technical explorations and explanations
  • How-to pieces
  • "Paradigm-shifting" changes in methodology, buisness landscape, or technology
  • Tutorials
  • Competitive analysis or product head-to-head comparison

After a simple phone briefing we'll take the project off your hands. You'll review the draft, make unlimited revisions, and give final approval over the content. You also maintain the copyright, so you can reuse your article or white paper wherever you like, as many times as you like, with no additional fees or approval.

Your customers read white papers because they want to be educated on a new topic, not sold to. They want to find out what's behind the advertisements. That makes white papers a powerful way to get your mesasge out clearly and effectively.

Any time you need something meatier than a article, a good white paper is the way to go. But be careful: badly written or obviously biased vendor-written white papers will backfire. You need to be even-handed and authoritative while also being persuasive.

In short, you need the skills we've honed for more than 20 years. Silicon Insider founder Jim Turley has won awards for his clear, accessible, and friendly writing style that keeps readers' attention right until the end. After all, what good is your white paper if no one finishes reading it?

Custom articles and white papers can be quoted by the word or on a flat-rate basis. The initial consultation is always free, so feel free to write ( This email address is being protected from spambots.
