Summary: What is the ideal length of the white paper to be effective? The answer is not as straight forward as you might expect. However, exploring the length question will lead you to write better white papers.

There is an idea in the business world that there is a magic length for white papers. Go beyond that magic length – the theory goes – and people will not read your white paper.
