Specialist in creating customer support content
Technical writing services
As a technical writer, I specialise in creating clear documentation that helps your customers to understand your products and services. This could be traditional user guides (instruction manuals), knowledge base articles, web pages, or online help content. What sort of information do you need to provide?
Take your documentation online with an HTML5 help centre. Searchable, user-friendly content that works on mobile, tablets. and computers.
Clear, accurate, and user-centred instruction manuals and tutorials. Fresh, modern designs and accessible content.
Help Centre Articles
Are you using Zendesk or a similar customer support centre? I’ll make sure your articles are helpful and user-centred.
Need microcopy for your software or app? I’ll make sure your content is concise, precise, and helpful.
For accessible web pages that are designed to help users achieve their goals. Similar to technical writing, but for non-tech content.
Need your website to be easier to understand and more helpful to customers? I’ll make your content more user-friendly.
"Craig combined professionalism with a conversational style in his writing that engaged the reader, often of subject matter that was both complicated and dry, but always managing to make it interesting and accessible.
His ability to converse with technical staff and illicit the finer points of the subject was excellent and combined with his attention to detail meant that nothing was left un-said or ambiguous in the text."
Chief Technical Officer, 4energy
