The Research Report Playbook: Here We Grow, Yo – Erin Balsa
Over the past three years, I’ve helped B2B SaaS clients drive MILLIONS of dollars in revenue by creating the kind of research reports people actually want to read and share. Like the 2020 Remote Work Report, which has driven $680k in revenue (so far). Now I’m packing EVERYTHING I know about research report creation and distribution into a course that includes my plug-and-play TEMPLATE.
I also answer all your burning questions: How do I come up with a compelling storyline? How do I get valid data? What if the data doesn’t support the story I want to tell? Am I supposed to gate the report for lead gen? How do I project manage all the moving parts? Why is my butt itchy? (Well on second thought, not ALL your burning questions.)
If you know me from my LinkedIn posts, you know my content has an edge to it. So expect some sarcasm, and maybe a swear or two. And expect to walk away with the knowledge and confidence you need to start creating your own research reports.

Hi! I’m Erin. I’ve had the privilege of leading content teams for seven years—first as a Section Editor and Managing Editor at a Boston-based content marketing agency. And then as Head of Content and Marketing Director at The Predictive Index, a high-growth B2B SaaS company. There, I grew the content team from 1 to 8, helped launch a market category to land a $50M Series A, and generated millions in revenue from content ($1M+ from research reports alone). Holla!
Over the past decade, I’ve worked with 100+ B2B companies as a strategist, editor, and writer. A few you might know include HubSpot, Drift, G2, Intuit, Greenhouse, Zenefits, Showpad, Intellum, and Metadata.
My content marketing and team leadership insights have been featured by the American Marketing Association, Content Marketing Institute, Content Marketing Conference, ASJA, Masters of Content, Content Logistics, Orbit Media, and more.
In my free time, I like to get tattoos, drink wine, and take long sits on the couch.
