Do you recognise any of these problems?

BitmoJohn busy

You’re too busy to write

You and your team don’t have the hours needed to create website and blog content to promote your business.

BitmoJohn magnifying glass

You’re too close to your own business

You’re so close to your day-to-day work that you can’t explain it objectively to others.

BitmoJohn autocorrect

You’re not the best writer

Perhaps English isn’t your strong suit.

Or maybe you’d be better explaining it face to face.

BitmoJohn Rocket

You want to reach a new level

You feel held back but know you want to stand out from the crowd.

You have the budget – you just need someone you can trust to make your business look great.

My answer to all those problems

Stop trying to do all your own writing. Hand off the task to someone who does this work all day, every day.

While I write your content, you get on with running your business.

Sounds good, right? drop me a line and let’s talk: support *at* espirian.co.uk.

The ‘why’ behind this business

When I worked in an office, I was the guy with the longest queue of people at my desk.

How does this work?
What does this mean?
Why is this error message coming up?

My special skill was being able to explain how things work in a way that was easy to understand.

Ohhh, RIGHT! I get it now. Thanks, John πŸ‘πŸ»

Those ‘aha!’ moments were the highlights of my working day. Showing people how stuff works gave me satisfaction – I was a natural explainer.

In 2009, I left office life behind and set up Espirian, my technical writing business.

Now I specialise in helping business owners to explain how their products, services and processes work. That involves writing user guides, how-to articles and other web content.

I work from my home office in Newport (near Cardiff, South Wales). Most of my clients are UK businesses, but because I work remotely rather than on site, I’m able to take on projects from all over the world.

I first came across John on LinkedIn and he wasn’t joking when he used the words ‘relentlessly helpful’ in relation to his attitude to work. Not only is John relentlessly helpful, he is also a veritable mine of information.

His work is meticulous, everything he writes is clear, concise and easy to understand. Working alongside John has been a joy. His main goal is to get the best out of the work we do. John is full of expert tips, advice and his refreshing attitude to sharing practise via his espresso emails has been amazing, especially as I’ve gone from start-up to established business.

As a website designer I was surprised by how much technical expertise John has at both the technical side of websites and plugins to get the most out of our sites. John’s sense of humour and practical approach to work makes him a joy to work with.

Do you outsource any of your writing?

No. Check out the org chart:

I had the pleasure of working with John when making changes to our customer facing pages, specifically relating to a new product.

John's ability to understand the product, the impact of the changes and come up with creative solutions to convey our message was first class.

He's a gentleman and a pleasure to work with.
