Infographic: How to write a killer case study

We recently came across a cool infographic on case studies from B2B copywriter Sandra Jean-Louis.
It sums up so many great tips that we asked Sandra if she’d be willing to share it here. Here’s what she had to say:

Few types of marketing collateral can compete with customer case studies

That’s because they use storytelling to relate the customer’s experience; they highlight a marketer’s unique differentiators in a compact form; and they’re a small investment that can pay dividends for years.

Yet, there aren’t many resources for developing these power-packed documents.

After taking Casey Hibbard’s course (a must if you’re serious about learning to write case studies), I looked around for a cheat sheet or checklist I could post to my wall for reference.

My search only turned up more courses and blog posts.

That’s when I decided to create a visual summary of the key steps to creating a case study.

I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from other writers and marketers who say this infographic is easy to follow and packs a punch.

Here it is. Feel free to use it to stay on track and avoid common mistakes.
