Often customers are concerned that we may not understand or know enough about their company and the industry in which it is based to be able to write relevant articles for them.

We research the following to write quality and informative pieces of writing:-

Researching the Unknown
We have a customer who stocks electrical components that are commonly used to construct fans in restaurant kitchens and controllers that can be used to change temperatures in a variety of different settings. The two key words that were identified were; ‘Programmable logic controllers’, and ‘variable speed drives’, on first viewing they seem complicated and daunting but once you start researching them you do learn an awful lot about the industry. For example we found that the main benefit of,’variable speed drives,’ was environmental and that the restaurant industry has benefitted financially by reducing the speed of their extractor fans and have reduced their carbon footprint at the same time. We now have a secure knowledge of the industry which allows us to publish links in the most relevant locations on the internet.
