6 Steps to Increasing Your Technical Documentation Budget

December 2, 2018

The most frustrating thing about being a technical writer? Some may think it’s the need to pay attention to each detail in the publication, even the ones readers don’t notice. Others may suspect that staying aware of every minor change in the product is what keeps you up at night.

Well, they’re wrong.

The most frustrating thing about being a technical writer is not knowing what happens to your content after you developed it. Do your carefully crafted answers actually reach your audience? Has your organization hired a documentation team, but have they investing the budget to deliver technical content in a user-friendly, modern way?

You’re not alone. Almost 50% of information development teams cite the lack of funding as a barrier to better content delivery. Almost one third cite lack of executive buy-in. Without the necessary investment in content delivery tools, your documentation ends up in static PDFs or too many clicks away – frustrating customers and tech writers alike.
