Why create a marketing case study?

Including the most important keywords for your business
Writing conversational copy
Having catchy headlines and frequent subheadings

Writing a great marketing case study takes a bit of work.
It’s important to write in an authentic voice, so preparing your case study usually involves a phone interview with the featured client, members of your own team.
You also want your case study to be written in language that’s easy to read and easy to understand. That means using bullet-points and making sure you use plenty of white space around the text.
You’ll want to include photos, illustrations and graphics that the reader will find interesting.
While including the necessary technical terms appropriate for your industry is fine, try and make it conversational. It’s easier to read that way.
Your written case study can also be the starting point for a case study video.
