Are you looking for a writer in UX, microcopy or content?
You are at the write place.
Let’s start with web content. It is written for humans and not robots. So it is very important what happens after Google.
This is where UX-writing and microcopy come into play, but invisibly. Its only purpose is to make your connected life easy.
- Is the webpage I am using easy to navigate?
- Can I quickly fill in my credit card number?
- Fill in a form?
- Click this link? How? Where?
If your web page provides a comfy environment, your guests will feel welcome and cared for. But the most important is that they will return.
But honestly, why text? I know Instagram is king.
No. We see text and words in so many more places right now. More than ever. It’s in the search bar of your music app, it’s on the web page you use every day, it’s in webshops with an address form. To make the internet human we need those small texts written by human beings.
Maybe it’s just one word? But the right word. Yes! You just read it, the right stuff.
Simply: Choose your words. Or choose someone who chooses your words. (Me?)
There are strong connections between the right texts and customer satisfaction.
Oh, wait a second. I am Mika. I live in Manchester, UK, with my wife, bicycle and at least one raincoat each. I have worked with photographers, written about birds, developed a website for a strategic marketing company and wrote a piece on home-brewed beer in China. My aim is to become an experienced UX writer, and this is my first project – a blog.
I wanted to swan dive into the noble art of UX-writing, so I launched this web page/blog/whatever on September 3, 2018. Most of the blog posts are in Swedish, soz guys. If you do read Swedish, you can take a look at the spark that started it all here: Link.
