Product brochures are the most common content type created by B2B marketers, but whitepapers deliver the highest-quality leads, according to a recent report from the CMO Council and the NetLine Corporation.

The report was based on data from a survey of 213 senior B2B marketing leaders (primarily located in North America), with 46% working at brands earning more than $1 billion in annual revenue.

Some 84% of respondents say their company creates product brochures; the next most-commonly created content type is slide presentations (79%), followed by whitepapers (78%), and videos (76%).

However, when respondents were asked to select which content types produce great leads, whitepapers come out on top (cited by 24%), followed by videos (22%), analyst reports (22%), and webcasts (22%).

Below, additional key findings from the report.

Effectiveness

  • 31% of respondents say their demand generation strategy is "someplace in the middle"—effective at times and ineffective at others.
  • 29% say their strategy is moderately effective.

Top Challenges

  • 48% of respondents say a major roadblock to garnering high-quality leads is a lack of content tailored to target audiences.
  • 48% also say budget limitations are a significant issue.
