Quality content written by Bits&Chips

Quality content is the key to successful marketing and recruitment, so make sure you hire the best technology writers to do the job. Bits&Chips is a content specialist in the high-tech field.

The benefits of Bits&Chips content services

By hiring Bits&Chips to generate your English content, you kill two birds with one stone. You generate top-quality pieces for your newsletters, website, and social media and receive instant international exposure through our established media ecosystem for the high-tech industry.

Bits&Chips is the premier publishing house for the Dutch high-tech sector. Our mission is to help high-tech companies reach an international audience and a constantly growing group of expats in the Netherlands who don’t (yet) speak Dutch.

The primary goal is to help you stand out, which can be a real challenge in the high-tech industry. Staying visible is an even greater task. Bits&Chips can help you craft a creative campaign to both catch —and keep— the attention of customers and talented engineers. To do that, in-depth content with the right tone is crucial. Bits&Chips’ editors have spent two decades writing for the high-tech industry; we are fluent in its many dialects and skilled in communicating a content-rich message.

Our tech writers can help you cut costs and save time. Hiring a PR agency or an extra force costs more than our editors. Additionally, our experienced editors can create top-quality content and readable articles much faster than your own people, who don’t write on a daily basis.

The advantages in a nutshell

  • native English (US) or Dutch
  • technology in clear language
  • correct in terms of technical content
  • dissemination through our media

Coverage, flexibility and exposure

There are several benefits to hiring the Bits&Chips team. The first is coverage: we’ll write your articles and press releases, turn them into accompanying items for your websites and social media channels. The second is flexibility: if you’d rather write your own content, no problem. We’re happy to guide you through your creative process and advise you on how to reach your goals. And then there’s exposure: we’ll edit your content to Bits&Chips’ house style and publish it on our website at no extra charge, giving you instant visibility on the Netherlands’ most widely read high-tech information portal.

Content creation examples

To give you an idea about the content we can create, we’ve listed some sample items and their estimated time requirements below.

News item – 1 to 8 hours
Short news item – A short piece (typically 100-200 words). Examples include a change-of-address notice, announcing a new branch office or welcoming a prominent new staff member (1 to 2 hours).

News item – You brief our editor by phone or in person, and then we write an in-depth news item that typically fits onto a single page (600 words). Examples include announcing an acquisition or partnership and introducing a new product or service (4 to 6 hours).

Press release – We adapt your news item for use as a press release and send it to targeted regional, national or global media outlets. We maintain a large database of suitable press contacts (1 to 2 hours extra work).

Interview or background story – 12 to 24 hours
Our editor conducts the interview, turns it into a compelling article and solicits feedback from those interviewed. The result is typically 1400-2000 words (but can be longer), including social media blurbs if desired (16 to 24 hours).

2 page article (1200-1400 words) – 12 to 16 hours

Background story written by you – 4 to 6 hours
Your staff member writes the piece. Our editors provide guidance, editing and final corrections (4 to 6 hours).

Blog post or column – 1 to 8 hours
An opinion piece that reflects the author’s personal viewpoint. Best kept short, 400 to a maximum of 1000 words. Your author or source briefs our editor, we write the post or column and work with the author to perfect its tone of voice (4 to 8 hours).

If you prefer to write the post yourself, our editors will provide guidance and final corrections (1 to 3 hours).
