AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Companies with products and services designed for engineers should focus on making a complete portfolio of content available to prospects before they engage sales. Learn more.

A new study released by engineering and technical content provider, IEEE GlobalSpec, in partnership with engineering-focused marketing agency, TREW Marketing, found that prospects want to interact with content before engaging with sales, and that "Ninety percent of engineers surveyed are more likely to do business with companies that regularly produce new and current content." Of that content, engineers most specifically prefer case studies, books, e-books, and white papers.

These findings come from a survey of nearly 900 technical professionals, launched in July 2017.
