If you run an IT business, you need a content writer that understands your niche. But finding a writer that specialises in technical blogging can be difficult. That’s where we can help.
Red Robot has two technical copywriters working full-time on IT copywriting assignments. From our base in Leeds, we’ll produce authentic, well-researched, high-quality content for your blog. Our content is consumer-friendly and accessible, striking a balance between technical know-how and accessible language.
We work to your schedule and write about the topics you choose. Just tell us what you want to cover, and we’ll get started.
Your Technical Blogging Team, On Demand
For technical companies, it’s always a challenge to find bloggers that really know their stuff. Often, copywriters don’t have the specialist knowledge required to blog about IT with confidence.
That’s where we’re different. Our USP is technical writing, and a large proportion of the work we do is blogging for IT-related companies.
Our writers are trained in a range of disciplines, and have broad experience across the IT industry. We have two formally trained technical authors on the team, ready to work on your content. We also have a trained journalist on-hand to write news content and press releases. Our aim is to handle all of your technical blogging requirements, freeing you up to run your business full-time.
How Our Technical Blogging Service Works
Each piece of content that we write for you will be priced upfront as a fixed fee. We charge a set rate for writing straightforward posts, so you can budget ahead each month.
Our team can source images for your blog, and we always cite sources. Keyword research is available as an add-on service.
When we kick start your project, we’ll consult with you to find out what you want to cover. Clients usually provide topics or source material, and we go ahead and research each topic ourselves.
Our writers also take a look at your existing website to get a feel for your brand voice and style. If you’re starting from scratch, we’ll help you with strategy. Alternatively, you can simply give us an account on your WordPress blog, and we’ll generate topics and content ourselves.

Technical Blogging FAQs
Who will write my technical content?
Technical content is written by Claire Broadley and Paul Newham.
We think it’s really important that you know who is writing your technical blogs, so you can liaise with them about the direction of your blog. That’s why we don’t outsource any work to third parties, unlike some of our competitors.
What kind of technical content do you supply?
We write blogs, static website content, tutorial and how-to videos, listicles, guides, reviews, newsletters, white papers, ebooks, and press releases. If you need a user guide for your application, we also provide technical authoring services. If you require a type of content not listed here, just ask: we can probably help.
Can I have a free sample blog about IT?
Often, new clients pre-pay for one or two trial blogs before setting up a permanent arrangement with us. Unfortunately we can’t provide free samples; we simply receive too many enquiries to make this feasible.
What’s included in the price?
We’ll give you a quote based on the number of articles you need, the length, and the subject matter. The price includes free adjustments or corrections for a set period of time. For technical blogs, we usually allow a two-week period for you to check the content and request changes.
Can you help with titles for my blogs?
Yes, we can. Some clients like to have full control over their content, and send us precise directions and titles for every blog. Other prefer us to carry out all of the research and idea generation, so we run their blog on auto-pilot. We are happy to tailor our approach to suit your preferred way of working.
How many blogs should I publish each week?
We recommend that you post a new blog at least once a week. But some of our clients order just one blog per month, while others order more than 25 per month. There is no correct answer; it depends on your overall technical blogging strategy. Where possible, we recommend mixing long and short blogs so you can see what’s working best for your brand.
Our minimum order is a 500-word blog, but IT content sometimes works best with a longer word count. Readers tend to expect more detail, and the general standards of content in the industry are high. Where possible, we recommend mixing long and short blogs so you can see what’s working best for your brand.
What kind of topics do you cover in technical blogs?
Typically, we write about hosting, WordPress, IoT, software and IT hardware, social media, marketing, SEO, cloud, unified communications, data quality, gadgets, STEM, smart home technology, and general small business topics.
Technical blogging doesn’t just have to be about your products and services; it can also offer tips and guides to a broader audience.
When do I pay for my technical blogs?
Advance payment gives you the freedom to pay upfront for quick orders on an ad-hoc basis. Monthly payment allows you to pay by bank transfer for the content supplied in each month; you’ll need to sign a contract for this. Finally, if you opt for a retainer, we will offer a small discount on your content if your order exceeds a certain value and you pay upfront for it. (Clients outside the UK may be asked to pay in advance for all assignments.)
How can I pay for technical blogs?
We prefer bank transfer in pounds sterling, and will soon accept payment in euros. You can also pay via Direct Debit or bitcoin. We take cards, but not PayPal.
What should I do if my content needs to be changed?
All technical blogging work is guaranteed for quality. If you need anything to be changed or rewritten, we are happy to carry out unlimited revisions within two weeks of delivery until the content is exactly what you need. If we have not had any change requests after two weeks after delivery, we assume that the content has been accepted and the revision period will close.
Can I pay you for a link on another website?
Our writers publish content on a range of websites. We take our obligations seriously, and we do not sell links on these sites. Also, we do not accept payment to place clients’ blogs on these sites. If you require this service, you will need to pay a third party for link building services.
Do you offer same-day turnaround on technical blogs?
Not usually, but we will always try to help. We recommend that you always give us 7 days’ notice.
