Agencies

Tech Write continues to work closely with marketing agencies to create high quality articles, eGuides and white papers for use in content marketing campaigns.

Notable accounts this year include VIBBIO (simplified video production software), Zonal (EPoS and cash management for restaurants and bars) and Cognite (operations management systems for the Oil & Gas sector).


I’ve also continued to work closely with Elastic Creative in Edinburgh, SquareDot in Du...

The period between Christmas and New Year used to be deathly quiet – but Boxing Day sales have changed all that.

The good news is that I’m available to help with any short notice tech copywriting projects.

Bye Google+, we barely noticed you

News broke overnight that Google is finally closing the long-running joke called “Plus”. Billed as an alternative to Facebook, this was yet another attempt by the search and services giant to tap into social media. And like all their previous social services (Orkut, Buzz), it failed spectacularly.

Having been a Google+ user since day 2 of the Beta period, I have learned several useful lessons.

1. Do not build a business (or personal brand) on Google services

The first few weeks of Google+ were genuinely exciting as people piled into the network to try and make sense of the platform. In true LinkedIn style, marketers began branding themselves as Google+ experts – and no one knew enough to challenge their BS.

Hell, even I managed to attract an audience of over 10,000 people.

Important news for Russian and Ukranian copywriting clients

Due to a huge rise in spam over the past few days, I have been forced to block all email messages coming from the mail.ru and pinspb.ru services. Please ensure that any Russian copywriting queries* are sent from another mail service instead.

You should be aware that this ban applies to the contact forms on this website too.

I apologise to any potential copywriting clients from Russia for this inconvenience. I am still interested in working with you!

For the rest of the world, I am equally careful about messages sent from free services like Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail. Queries (or guest post requests) sent from these addresses will attract additional scrutiny before we can do business together. Sorry.

Ready with a reputable email address? Use the form at the bottom of the page to sen...

Dollars, Euros, Zloty and more – multicurrency payments welcome here

With more international copywriting projects than ever before, I am pleased to announce that clients can now pay in their home currency. Multicurrency services like Revolut and Transferwise greatly simplify the international payments process. Much easier than making traditional cross-border payments in British Pounds.

With all that extra hassle, you may be tempted to choose a local tech copywriter who speaks excellent English. But can they write convincingly in a foreign language?

Fortunately these problems are solved when you can pay for tech copywriting services in your home currency.

Multicurrency payments – everyone wins

Simplified accounting is just one benefit for...
