Erik shows the process can be fast and easy.
In fact, he illustrates that creative pitching can leverage a single Gartner press release or whitepaper for several different articles. This is much more mileage than citing a statistic in a press release.
Naturally, it’s imperative to follow the citation policies of each research company when preparing the final submission.
