The Masters Series: A Short History

We keep tabs on valuable content types—such as SlideShares, eBooks, whitepapers, microsites, and infographics—and interview the creative staff producing that content. From those interviews, we compile actionable, demonstrable, detailed advice on how to produce best-in-class content.

The idea for Masters of the eBook campaign started last January with the Masters of SlideShare campaign. Masters of SlideShare was a first-of-its-kind marketing campaign covering insights from the 13 best SlideShare producers.

The campaign met tremendous success:

We Thought: What Else Can a Collective Conscience Do?

And thus, we embarked on an eBook research haul to identify the top content marketing eBook producers and their words of wisdom.

The research included reading more than 1,000 pages and 250,000 words from marketing eBooks from across industries: technology, business, health, venture capital, and more. We called on industry leaders and marketers from across the globe to send us their favorite marketing eBooks, and then we started to curate the submissions. What we found is the créme de la créme of content marketing.
