APEX, N.C. – Laura A. Schoppe, president of Fuentek, LLC, a local technology consulting firm that provides intellectual property and technology transfer services, has announced the release of the company’s white paper, Digital Media Guidelines for Tech Transfer Offices. Written by Schoppe and senior consultant Jack Spain, the paper provides comprehensive guidance for all aspects of digital media for tech transfer.

In addition to well-established digital tools, such as websites, IP exchanges, open innovation portals, and email marketing for licensing and partnership opportunities, the paper discusses strategies for various social media tools. These tools include blogs; microblogging via a Twitter® feed; networking tools such as LinkedIn® and Facebook® sites; and sites for sharing video, slideshows or other content.

The paper also explains how to fit these disparate tools into a comprehensive digital media strategy and how to evaluate the return on investment in digital media.
“I wouldn’t say print is dead when it comes to tech transfer marketing, but digital media plays a huge role in how tech transfer offices do their job,” said Schoppe. “And with all of the new tools that have gained prominence in the past several years, we felt a comprehensive guidance document would be useful to TTOs across sectors—corporate, university and government. That’s our goal with this white paper.”
