If you require registration to gain access to a document? It’s not free. If you have any. other. hoop. a visitor must jump though to gain access? It’s not free.
Registration and related hoopla requires time and attention. Prospects trust you in the assumption that they’re in an exchange for an article, white paper or a research summary with charts and graphs that is useful or interesting.

Give your prospects something of value, for free. It’s an investment that yields better returns.
