More about choosing a technical literature writer

Does the idea of technical literature make you think of dry, heavily technical publications written by boffins? Or perhaps you envisage an engaging, customer-focused brochure at the interface between marketing and state-of-the-art technical information. Something like a car brochure where the emotive appeal of the latest shiny vehicle is balanced by the rational reassurance of carefully written supporting technical information. Whatever technical literature has to do for you and your customers, I may be able to help…

  • Datasheets
  • Technical literature for PR purposes
  • Technical marketing brochures
  • Case studies
  • Engineering copy
  • Sales literature
  • Factsheets

I’m often approached by owners and managers at engineering and technology companies who recognise that they don’t have the time, the specialist skills or the inclination to write the copy for their technical literature. On other occasions, I work on technical literature with design agencies. And of course, as an experienced SEO copywriter, I can tell your technical story in ways that will appeal to your online audience and the all-important search engines too.

I’ve written widely on technical subjects

Over the years I’ve written widely on technical subjects: from construction materials to aircraft ground handling equipment; from automotive components to screw piling, gas filtration and home security.

Sometimes I work from scratch, using source material and interviews as the basis for my work. On other projects I’ve turned the driest of existing technical material into reader-friendly literature. The transformation can be amazing   the difference between effective communication and falling victim to the ‘silent assassin’ that can put your reader off before you even know the damage has been done.

Free your tech team to do what they do best

Whether I’m researching and writing from raw source material or reworking your draft technical sales literature, it makes sense to let me write your content. All I need is a basic briefing. Then I’ll get on with the writing while your technical people get on with what they do best. Even if you’ve already got a marketing person, they’re probably snowed under with non-writing tasks. Again, I can help with the copywriting while they focus on other parts of their job.

Either way, I’ll help you get vital technical literature off your to-do list and out in the market where it can work for you.
