Mobile Security Campaign Sponsored by Dell-EMC

My most recent project for WEI was a series of long-form content pieces on the topic of enterprise mobility management (EMM). The content, which included one white paper, two supporting briefs, and three blog posts, drove a major quarterly marketing initiative for WEI.

White Paper - Mobile Efficiency and Innovation Through Next-Generation Security


"Enterprise mobility makes employees happier and more productive, but it has also presented serious security problems. What kind of devices should be allowed access to the company network, and with what permissions? How should enterprises govern the flow of data through the company network, and outside its boundaries? Given the potential for financial damage and loss of reputation, sacrificing security for mobility isn’t a trade-off that any company should feel comfortable making."

Prospects who downloaded the white paper received two briefs in as follow-up, Three Tips for Successful Enterprise Mobility Management Deployment, and Four Misconceptions of Enterprise Mobility Management

Blog Posts

To help extend the campaigns reach onto social media, and improve organic search relevancy around mobile security, the campaign was also supported by a series of three blog posts.

Success metrics

The first draft of the marketing content, which needed virtually no editing, won high praise from both WEI and Dell marketing personal. The EMM campaign generated a significant number of marketing and sales qualified leads for WEI at launch, and continues to drive engagement much later.
