White Paper Writing Service

SaaS white papers that get leads

As a SaaS marketer, you’re getting pressure from all sides to create high quality content that produces a steady stream of highly qualified leads. But the reality is that your team’s swamped and you don’t have head count to hire an in-house writer. That’s where our white paper writing service comes in.

Our white paper writing service can help

You’ve outsourced to freelance writers and agencies in the past, but the results were less than stellar. They didn’t ask the right questions, skipped basic research and submitted crap content that missed the mark. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Uplift’s white paper writing service is here to help.

What you can expect with Uplift’s white paper writing service

Through our work with high-growth B2B SaaS companies like WalkMe, Okta and LeanData, we’ve developed a simple process that delivers big results for motivated, maxed-out SaaS marketers like you.

1. Strategy

You tell us your goals for the SaaS white paper, and how you want to use it. We help determine the best format and structure, how to build in thought leadership and what promotional content you need to produce to ensure the white paper performs to its full potential.

2. Project management

You’re maxed out so let us take care of the details. We’ll handle the project management, which could include coordinating interviews, managing the review process and keeping the project on track.

3. Research & interviews

You discuss with us your vision for the SaaS white paper. Then we dive deep into the research. From interviewing subject matter experts to digging into reports, we use all sources of information at our disposal.  

4. Writing the white paper

First, we develop an outline for you to review. Then we go ahead and write the first draft of the white paper. Our in-house editor does a detailed first pass before sending it along to you.

5. Performance optimization

Your content needs to perform to its fullest potential so we add elements like keywords, headers and subheaders, hyperlinks and strong calls to action.

6. Revisions & approval

Your time is precious so let us manage the review and approval process. Our goal? Help you get your white paper generating leads in a timely way.

7. Measure & tweak

Two months after launch, we analyze incoming and outgoing metrics and provide you with a list of suggestions and fixes for optimizing the content’s performance and improving its ROI.

Everything you need to know—and then some

Why does your pricing say “Starting at…”?

The rate you see is what we’ve charged recently for similar projects. Once we learn more about your project, we will quote you a specific rate. Topic complexity, meeting time, interview time, amount of research and level of desired service will all impact the rate.

Are your rates hourly?

We usually quote a fixed price for our white paper writing service. This eliminates surprises, and ensures you get valuable content that meets your business goals.

After an initial call to talk about your goals, project, audience, budget and timelines, we’ll put together a detailed statement of work and firm quote for our engagement.

If your content requirements change frequently, then we can discuss whether an hourly rate may be the better option.

Why are you going to ask me about my budget in our initial call?

We’re going to talk about your budget on the initial call for a couple of reasons:

  1. People can have very different ideas about how much content should cost. We need to make sure we’re on the same page before we go any further.
  2. We need to prioritize deliverables based on your budget. You might not have funds for the white glove experience, but with a few tweaks to the scope, you can still great content that suits your needs and your budget.
What’s your minimum engagement rate?

Our minimum engagement rate is $1,000 USD—and most projects are in the $1,500 to $5,000+ USD range for a single project.

Without a doubt, you can find people to do this work for less (sometimes much less). In our experience, content writers who quote low aren’t doing their research, don’t have much experience and aren’t too worried if they miss a deadline or hand in a crappy piece of content.

On the other hand, our B2B SaaS customers decide to work with us because they:

  • need content that aligns with their business goals
  • value well-researched, accurate and engaging content
  • understand the impact quality content has on revenue growth
  • want to work with professionals who follow a proven process—and always deliver on time and on budget
Do you do discounts?

As a loyal (and keen!) customer, you save 10% when you book 6 or more pieces of content with us.

Do you do retainers?

Yes, we love retainer clients because it allows us to dig even deeper into your company and your customers’ pain points. It also allows us to be more proactive in providing content ideas and strategies.

On top of this, retainers allow you to get guaranteed time in our calendars to help you scale your content marketing efforts. And you save 10% off our regular rates.

Once we understand your annual content goals and what content you need each month, we’ll provide you with a retainer agreement that includes a statement of work, quote and terms of engagement.

Retainers start at $1,000 USD per month. Most retainers are between $3,000 and $5,000 USD per month.

How does payment work?

For projects, we collect a 50% deposit before starting the project and invoice the final 50% once the project is finished.

For retainers, we collect the full month’s payment at the beginning of each month.

You can pay by wire transfer, PayPal or cheque.

What kind of results can we expect?

This is a tricky question to answer because so much of it depends on how you distribute and promote the content. During our initial strategy session, we can discuss this in detail.

We also offer a quarterly content optimization service that identifies:

  • what content is driving conversions
  • opportunities for new content
  • which keywords are getting results
  • what existing content you should be promoting
  • usability and readability issues and how to fix them
  • opportunities to attract more views of your content

Each quarter you get:

  • analysis and measurement of up to 50 pages of content
  • content performance audit results
  • specific fixes to optimize 10 pages (we pick pages that have the most opportunity for improved performance and ROI)

Learn more about our content performance optimization service.

When can we get started?

We can usually get started with our white paper writing service within 1 to 3 weeks.

What do I need to provide you with to get started?

We’ll send over a Statement of Work for you to sign, as well as an invoice to hold your place in our calendar.

From there, we’ll send you an onboarding template to fill out. You only have to fill this out the first time you work with us. It should take about 10 minutes to complete. In it, we ask you to provide information on your target audience, high-level marketing messages and any background reading you feel would be helpful for us when ramping up.

Then we ask you to complete our writer’s brief template. You’ll complete one of these for each piece of content we write for you. It should take about 10 minutes to complete. The brief outlines the format, word count, turnaround time, key messages for the piece of content you’ve requested.

That’s it! Let’s get started.

We’ve worked with bad writers in the past. How can we trust you’ll do a great job?

In our hunt to put together the best possible content team, we’ve also run across many less-than-stellar writers. So, we hear you. But you know, we find it just makes those few gems of writers really stand out.

Our small, hand-picked team of experienced and professional B2B SaaS writers has a track record of success with high-growth B2B SaaS companies like Okta and WalkMe. Let’s let our portfolio speak for itself.

Will you work in other niches besides SaaS?

Yes. It’s always fun to change things up from time to time. If you have a project that is outside of B2B SaaS, get in touch to see if we’d be a good fit.

Do you write anything else besides case studies, ebooks and white papers?

Yes, we write some other kinds of content—case studies, ebooks and white papers just happen to be our focus. Let’s talk if you need:

  • thought leadership articles
  • guides
  • reports
  • blog posts
  • website content
  • knowledge base articles and support content
I want to work with you. Now what?

Great! Simply get in touch to get started.

Let’s collaborate

With our white paper writing service, you can:

  • attract more leads and drive more sales with high-converting white papers
