31 Aug WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A TECHNICAL WRITING TEAM
Wondering why your product documentation isn’t getting the attention it deserves? Are your customers constantly calling to ask technical questions about your products? Then it’s time to let a technical expert craft your technical documents and communications.
The demand for technical writers is expected to grow 8 percent between 2020 and 2028. Most companies need experts who can convey technical information into “plain” language.
Even IF you specialize in electronics or marketing software, you still need a technical writer. One option is to hire an in-house team to write product documentation. That’s great, but be prepared to pay the price — the average salary of a technical writer was $71,850 in 2018.
A more convenient economical option is to outsource technical writing. You’ll not only save time and money but also stay assured that your product documentation reaches its purpose. Your content will be presented in a professional, accessible way that should answer any questions your customers may have.
Still not convinced? Here’s why you should hire a technical writing team for your business!
According to a report by Deloitte, 57 percent of organizations outsource projects which frees them to focus on the core aspects of their business. This makes perfect sense.
If you’re an engineer or project manager who is spending hours writing product manuals, STOP and hire a specialist to lift that burden.
A skilled technical writer can create reports, manuals, datasheets, and even press releases. Their role is to analyze the information and present it in an accessible format that provides value to your target audience.
Reduced Overhead Costs
If you are a startup or small-to-medium sized business, you may yet be able to afford a full-time team.
Think about how much you would spend on recruiting, payroll, and employee training. Plus, you won’t have to purchase specialized software for this task. As a business owner, you can pass the savings onto your customers or use the money to grow your company.
In fact, nearly 60 percent of business owners see outsourcing as a cost-cutting tool, as reported by Deloitte.
