Technical Writing Skills for Businesses and Non-profits
My technical writing skills are a valued resource for your company. Having the ability to edit content, as well as the overall layout and design can give your company the cohesive image that is consistent with branding to present to consumers, clients and investors. Having an integrated design in all aspect of the business shows organization, professionalism and attention to details. Using design continuity, there is a better chance of increasing your client base, receiving funding and grants for new programs.
It is very important for a non-profit to be well organized and to represent themselves in a professional matter. When writing grants the grantees will look at every aspect of your company; if your organization's information appears to be confusing, disorganized and poorly focused your chances of not receiving the grant increase dramatically.
When writing documents for business professionals, one difficulty is including all of the information needed, while creating a relevant emotional connection and understanding of the importance of your organization within the community. Business professionals are bombarded with documents every day. They are not interested in reading long letters with heartfelt messages. They want to know the facts right from the start. With my ability to create visually appealing documents and minimize excess content I can provide your company with documents that catch the eye of business professionals and make then what to go over the entire documents from front to back.
I have the ability to take written documents and simplify them so that everyone can understand them regardless of their educational background. When writing documents; especially for your clients you want to ensure that they are able to read it and understand it.
I enjoy taking documents and reformatting them so they are represented in a visually appealing way. Though not every document your company creates needs to be visually appealing it doesn’t hurt. Creating annual reports with pictures, color and texture’s creates an atmosphere for your reader that reflects what your organization is all about. This not only gives the reader the information they need but an emotional connection to the material. In many non-profit organizations it’s the emotional connection that helps them succeed.
