Telecommuting and Technical Writing

Telecommuting is becoming an attractive option for companies using freelance technical writers. Due to the slow down of the economy businesses are looking for ways to lower their costs. As managers adjust to off-shoring, new methods of effective communication are being used in order to complete writing projects. Here are a list of tools that our clients find useful when using remote freelance writers.

  • Project Management software
  • Web 2.0 Collaborative tools, wikis, and secure servers
  • GoToMeeting
  • Emails
  • Weekly status reports

Using local freelance writers allows the writer to be on-site a couple days a week or as needed. The client can negotiate a lower freelance rate and
the writer can save on gas.

If you already have an information technology degree, certification, or experience many companies are willing to give you access similar to their
