Are you looking for a unique lead generation product that delivers value to your audience AND engages them with your content? Continuing Education is the key to accomplishing that. Most licensed professionals are required to earn continuing education units (CEUs) to maintain their license or credential. We offer you the opportunity to provide these CEUs they need while building brand awareness and generating high-quality leads for your business.
CEUs can be offered through a variety of formats including articles, webinars, live events, videos, and interactive presentations. Whether you have existing content or want to create new, engaging content, our team of instructional designers and subject matter experts is here to help you. As a sponsor, you can view all your course stats and engagement data in our new, interactive and easy-to-use sponsor dashboard – available to you 24/7.
Sponsor a unique collection of Stone World articles designed as a downloadable digital eBook! Topic-specific eBooks are hosted on stoneworld.com and deployed to Stone World's audience through a custom co-branded eBlast. Select your own topic or our editorial team will suggest one. Either way we handle all publishing details – from production and hosting to marketing and gathering leads.
