Engineer Your Copy is not a what but rather a who.  It is Keith A. Trimels, P.E. — a freelance B2B copywriter specializing in lead generation and edu-marketing content for technology companies.

A registered engineer with a quarter century of engineering experience, Keith has designed, specified and used the products and services he now supports through his copywriting.  This means he is one of only a handful of technical B2B copywriters who have actually been a member of the target audience.

This first-hand industry experience, coupled with his varied technical and business background, means Keith can quickly help you identify key product features or company skillsets.  Then with an understanding of your customers, he will explain them as benefits in a way that resonates with those customers regardless of their technical or organizational background.

Varied Project Experience

A registered engineer, Keith has designed, specified, deployed and managed technical projects in a wide range of areas including:

  • Information technology (hardware, software and infrastructure)
  • Traffic operations and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
  • Transportation design and construction
  • Commercial land development, buildings and structures

And these projects have ranged in scope from tens of thousands of dollars for local projects to multimillion-dollar national-level projects.  So you can be sure he can handle your project regardless of size.

Keith’s industry experience extends into management, marketing and training as well.  Before shifting his focus away from active engineering, he was the regional manager for a national consulting firm where he managed hardware and software development as well as marketing and business development throughout the western US.  As a result, he intimately understands your technology marketing efforts have to show tangible results.

Beyond project management, he’s been a partner in a technical training company.  His technical training experience has honed his unique ability to bridge the gap between the technical staff and their detailed solutions — and the organizational decision makers responsible for implementing those solutions.
