Technical documentation – an affordable way to provide customer support 24/7

When you don’t understand how a product works, where do you look for answers? It’s probably the user guide or online, right? You only call customer support or sales as a last resort. Your customers feel exactly the same way. They want you to provide content and documentation that’s easy to use and understand.

That’s where I can help you.

As a technical writer and copywriter, I create user-friendly content that gives your customers the information they need. So when they have questions, they can find answers without calling your support.

To learn more about my technical writing and copywriting services, see below or get in touch to discus your project.


Technical Writing and Copywriting Services

What’s the best way to get information to your customers?For delivering user assistance, you might want to go for an online help system, web pages, or perhaps a PDF user manual. If you’re trying to attract new leads, then web copy, brochures, and email content could be the answer. Whatever type of content you need, I can help.

Online Help & Web Content

Online help works like a website, and allows customers to search for the information they need. It’s a great way to provide support 24 hours a day and across time zones.

User Guides

Hard copy user guides and PDF user guides are still a great way of providing support. But they need to be written in a way that allows the reader to dive in at any point, so they can get specific answers fast.


To engage customers, your content has to capture their attention and promote benefits, not features. It’s all about writing from the customer’s perspective and answering ‘what’s in it for me?’.
