The Aragon Guest Network: The Good, The Better and The Best
By Nga Pham
Have you ever heard about the Aragon Guest Network? If so, you might be wondering what it is and what’s in it for you. In this blog, we will explain how the Aragon Guest Network (AGN) works and how it will benefit you as well as your organization.
What Is The Aragon Guest Network?
The Aragon Guest Network (AGN) is a community that will allow you to receive direct access to select free research notes, including Visual Research in video format, as well as access to Aragon analysts, who are always available to chat.
Signing up for a free trial sounds like a no brainer, but too often, there is some commitment to it such as auto renewal. That’s not the case with the Aragon Guest Network, which is completely free for 45 days—no strings attached. All you have to do is to fill out the request form using your business email and you are all set.
When your free membership expires, you will simply be removed from the network. If you want to continue to access insights from Aragon Research, discuss that with your account executive or talk to our Sales team.
So, what differentiates the Aragon Guest Network from other complimentary research and advisory services that you have used before?

We’ve found that visual and textual research integrated together is the best and fastest combination for knowledge transfer. According to the Social Science Research Network, 65% of the population are visual learners. That’s why we always innovate our research formats.
In the AGN, you will find Visual Research videos which cover key concepts, technology trends, and competitive insights that executives need to know—in 2 minutes or less. Additionally, we have built a diverse content pool, from infographics, to guides, checklists, and podcasts. All actionable insights are now at your fingertips.
