Creating custom printed promotional books and eBooks is a tremendous way to generate leads and build thought leadership at the same time. Printed books attract lots of traffic at trade show booths. Sales people love to hand them out to customers and partners during sales calls and regional seminars. Our eBooks are frequently cited as the most successful call-to-action for email, social media, and pay-per-click campaigns.

CyberEdge’s Definitive Guide books and eBooks can be created in about 4-5 months. They’re equally as professional and attractive as their national brand counterparts. In some instances, our books are even nicer as we print on brighter, higher-quality paper. But there are several other reasons why cybersecurity vendors are choosing CyberEdge’s Definitive Guides over national brands.

Unsurpassed Subject Matter Expertise

Some national brands contract with authors who are inexperienced in the cybersecurity industry segment that is the focus of the book. By the time you edit their manuscript drafts, you could have authored the book yourself! CyberEdge is different. We only provide authors who have extensive technical subject matter expertise in your cybersecurity industry segment. Our authors average 15-20 years of experience.

Get More, Pay Less

Some national brands charge an arm and a leg for their 1-3 year eBook licenses. Some force you to host your eBook on their website and redirect traffic to their site for downloads. CyberEdge is different. Our eBook licenses are a fraction of the cost, and our perpetual eBook licenses never expire. And you have the freedom to host your eBook on your website or any website you please.

Optional Self-Authoring

Approximately one in five CyberEdge Definitive Guide customers author their manuscript in-house. In this instance, CyberEdge provides a “Managing Consultant” to work with the customer to organize their manuscript, provide manuscript templates, and interface with our talented editor and graphic designer behind the scenes. We want to make the overall process as seamless as possible, whether you author the manuscript yourself or work with an experienced CyberEdge author or co-authors.
