Technology Copywriting That's Ahead of the Curve: Making the Complicated Sound Simple
In this fast-moving industry, you need a technology copywriter that keeps up with the latest innovations. Whether you’re a tech startup, or a household name, I can improve your written communications with professional copy that engages and persuades your target markets.
What Does Good Technology Copywriting Look Like?
‘Good technology copywriting needs to understand the target audience and what their understanding of the tech might be. In technology copywriting, I think you can get away with using a few more technical terms as sometimes technical information can actually help gain the reader’s trust a little bit. If it’s in the business-to-consumer sphere, it’s about making technical information sound simple. It’s about making it digestible, in a way that the audience (who may not be into their tech) understands.’

Technology Copywriting: What I Do
As a technology copywriter, I’m on the ball when it comes to writing about new technologies, particularly in relation to business, marketing and education. I’ve written for a range of clients from app developers to SAAS companies and everything in between. New technology is being introduced all the time and existing tech is constantly being developed or upgraded. That’s why you need a technology copywriter that stays on top of the latest trends in the tech industry.
What My Technology Clients Have Said About My Work...
‘Jamie has been helping us from the start on a very, still, niche, technological topic. He has been able to pick up the lingo and ropes of the industry amazingly fast and from there on our relationship kept progressing. We started from plain SEO blog posts with full specs and directions and now have Jamie managing the whole blog’s planning and topic discovery, doing his own research in a demanding and very competitive industry. If you have a demanding SEO copywriting job, Jamie is your man!’

Great experience and hopefully the start of a long working relationship.’
Kenny Fraser, Director, Sunstone Communication
‘Jamie is true professional and it was pleasure working with him. He seriously gets into topic investigation and we ended up with only minor corrections, I have to admit, Jamie unlike other copywriters we tried, always stayed on schedule which was very important for us to get contact on time. I would use Jamie services again and highly recommend him.’
