Technical Copywriting Services

Having worked in IT since 1996, the technical copywriting services I provide are more than just clever words. I have held roles in technical support, network management and web development, as well as writing manuals, documentation and audit reports of computer networks giving me genuine hands-on experience of turning geek speak into sales.

FAQs

How much do you charge?

Prices are calculated on a project-by-project basis. You can find details about how I calculate my quotes on my copywriting rate card.

How do you work?

Actually, the correct question is ‘how do you work?’ After all, my job is to simplify yours. Your business has its own way of working, and I do whatever I can to accommodate your preferences. You can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like during the project – all I need is an understanding of what you need. Then it’s over to me to deliver by the agreed deadline.

Can you deliver copy tomorrow?

Possibly. Drop me a line and we’ll talk.

Yes, but can you *really* deliver copy tomorrow?

It has been done before, and it will be again. But we need to talk now if you want it to happen. Drop me a line using the live chat box to get started ->.

Do you offer agency rates?

I’m always open to negotiation. Let’s talk.

Can you do a free trial sample?

No.

Do you write academic papers?

No.

It’s your degree, you earn it.

Can you write….?

Yes, almost certainly. I regularly write blog posts, sales emails, white papers, reports, ebooks and social media posts. I’ve also written video scripts, CVs, print articles and physical brochures. I’ve even been tricked into writing someone’s university midterm paper.

Just because you don’t see it listed here, doesn’t mean I can’t write it. Drop me a line – I’m unlikely to say no.

What tools do you use?

I work to your preferences, so I use a wide range of copywriting tools and comms services for my clients. I’ve listed some in order of preference:

Documents

  • Microsoft Word
  • Apple Pages / iWork
  • Plain text / RTF
  • Scrivener
  • Google Docs (but I’d really rather not)

Video conferencing

  • Apple FaceTime
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Cisco WebEx
  • Blue Jeans
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

Project management

  • Trello
  • Astana

If you need me to be part of an ongoing project long-term, I’m also happy to join your Slack channels, or to use one of your corporate email addresses for client comms.

Do you speak any other languages?

Although I offer international copywriting services, my language skills are quite poor. I speak French and German to high school level, and I’m learning a few hundred words in Polish.

I am very good at working with people from across the world, helping to turn their ideas into great copy though.

Do you write tutorials / user guides?

Absolutely. Sometimes I’ll even supply screenshots. Let’s talk.

Do you write technical manuals?

I have written technical manuals and administration guides in the past, and I’m open to doing it again. If you have a specific project in mind, we should talk.
