WORKSHOPS FOR YOU

 

Improve Your Customer Relations Through Better Documentation

Increase Product Sales with Better Marketing Materials

Increase Your Brand without Breaking the Bank

Rumor has it that your products are great. But what about the supporting product documentation and marketing materials?

Are they winning awards? Or, are they simply “adequate”? These extremes may not be doing you any favors. Awards do not guarantee sales. And adequate usually equates to mediocre, nothing special.

If the marcom components of your communication mix are not increasing sales, they should be improved.

If the documentation components are not reducing support calls and improving customer satisfaction, they should be improved.

Since 1990, Leer Technical Communications has been helping companies build brand recognition, reduce support calls, and improve customer relations by developing effective customer/employee communication products and services, from manuals to brochures, online help to web content.

Note, I am NOT asking you to outsource development of your marketing and documentation materials, although Leer Technical Communications does provide these services. I AM offering your staff tips that improve customer satisfaction, reduce support calls, and increase sales.

Leer Technical Communications offers onsite workshops that evaluate your current programs and introduce tools and processes that will improve them to achieve your business goal.

If you are interested in hearing more, reply by completing this brief survey. I will personally reply with suggested workshops for your staff.

 

I look forward to helping your staff deliver company information more effectively so it reflects positively on your bottom line.

 

Sincerely yours,

Jon Leer
