Are you based in or near Melton Mowbray and in need of reliable, skilled and local technical writing services? Yes? Then I have good news for you – there is an experienced technical author right on your doorstep, available on a contract or freelance basis. Even better, that technical writer (Craig Wright), has a wealth of experience that will keep your project on track.
BA Hons Technical Communication, 15+ Years’ Professional Experience, and Just 35 Mins Away from Melton Mowbray
I’ve been a professional technical writer for over 15 years (software and hardware) and have a degree in Technical Communication. So I know the theory and best practices of tech comm and also have the hands-on experience that is needed to make your documentation project a success.
- Technical Writing Qualifications
Don’t underestimate the importance of hiring a technical author with formal training and qualifications. Just because a tech writer has been in the industry for several years, it doesn’t mean they follow best practices. I have a degree in Technical Communication and am a member of the Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators, so you can be sure your documentation will be of high quality.
- Experience of Working in Large Corporations and Small Businesses
If you take a look at my career history, you’ll see that I spent 16 years working for a company called Serck Controls, which is a subsidary of Schneider Electric, a huge global company. So I know exactly what it is like to work for a large organisation. But I’ve worked for smaller businesses too, so don’t assume I’m some super-corporate technical writing robot. I’m not. I’m just an easy-going technical writer who takes pride in his work and likes to get things done.
- Skilled with Help Authoring Tools and Documentation Software
You don’t get to work for big companies without knowing your stuff. Over the years, I’ve used MS Word (yes, really), Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe InDesign, and MadCap Flare to produce online help, user guides, tutorials, and manuals. I’ve also dabbled with Confluence as a way of creating wiki-style articles. Even if you plan to use another HAT (Help Authoring Tool), there’s not going to be an issue – most documentation tools have common features.
- Empathy with End-Users
I have a keen interest in finding out how things work and I seem to have an ability for learning new technology quickly. But I’m not a techie. This seems to stand me in good stead as a technical author, as it means I don’t get ‘lost’ in the technical details – I am always able to empathise with the end user. As a result, I’m able to pitch your documentation at the right level for your customers.
- Ability to Understand New Technology Quickly
Worried that I don’t know about your products or services? Don’t be. I pick up new technology very quickly – maybe I am an engineer at heart. Have a look at my testimonials for more details.
Skilled at Explaining Complex Concepts in Plain English
Well, of course I am. That’s my job, right? There’s a reason why I’m good at explaining concepts in simple terms – that’s how I have to process the information myself!
- Sensitive to your Business Needs
Hey, I’m a business owner too, and I know how important it is to provide appropriate, affordable solutions. When you come to me with a project, I will suggest a course of action that works best for you, even if it means using MS Word instead of a more powerful documentation tool.
The Melton Mowbray Copywriting Experiment
You may be wondering why I have dealt specifically with Melton Mowbray, when I am based further south in Leicestershire. The answer relates to another skill I have to offer your business – SEO copywriting. You see, I am a trained copywriter as well as a technical author, and have worked on marketing material for many businesses, predominantly on web sites. And that’s why I’m targeting Melton Mowbray; it is an experiment to test the weight of links from a paid advertising site. That’s not to say I’m just playing a game – I genuinely can cover Melton Mowbray; I have worked for several clients in the area.
The purpose of the experiment is to see how well this page will perform with 100% organic, ‘white hat’ SEO techniques in comparison to sites that have paid ads. I suspect that the difference will be minor, but the proof, as always, is in the pudding.
Getting to Melton Mowbray
I am based in Hinckley, Leicestershire and so can get to Melton Mowbray in about 35 mins, straight up the M1.It really is a very straight-forward journey.
