"The byline Walker Sands created for us was great. Our CEO was shocked that someone outside of the company wrote it because it's so spot on to our messaging! It's at least 10 times better than you'd read in a regular trade pub."

Clayton Weir, Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, FI.SPAN

Thought Leadership in B2B Tech PR

The tech sector offers many different types of thought leadership opportunities for innovative B2B firms – all of which address industry needs while inspiring meaningful conversations with potential customers.

Common thought leadership tactics include:

  • White Papers: The best white papers define and solve industry problems. Our vertical-specific teams work to identify the issues your audiences care about the most, enabling you to address those issues with leading insight. We work to capture your brand voice, communicate your most important messages and distinguish you from competitors.
  • Contributed Bylines: At Walker Sands, our network of contacts includes editors at some of the most prominent business publications and news sites.
