The Hot Take 🔥

Microcopy, error messages, onboarding, empty states, notifications, the app store, and more. Every place our users are, there the UX writer should be! 

For each element, there are, of course, best practices. Check out these articles to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of the unsung heroes of the user experience and become a force in this field.

Learn by Listening 🎧

Writing SaaS emails is an art form unto itself. Check out this great episode of Writers in Tech, where Jane Portman lays out exactly how to write impactful emails for your business and your customers.

Pillars of the Community 💪

I Love Jorn’s contributions here! There are so many nuances to consider. Everything from legal compliance to the voices in our heads.

Microcopy Bite 💬

The cookie modal is one of the often overlooked areas in so many products. Sure, you can get away with generic copy, but seizing every opportunity to connect with your users and help them to know your brand better will earn their trust and loyalty.

Moment of Mirth 😂 

A big part of knowing what’s going on in all parts of the product is getting the invite to the meetings. So, UX writers…may the odds be ever in your favor 😉.

🤖 AI & UX

AI promises to help us apply voice, tone, and brand guidelines to copy for all aspects of our products. 

I wonder if this will make it easier for smaller and more stretched teams to ensure that their customers are greeted with on-brand copy no matter where they are in the experience 🤞.
