UX writing is good for business, while also playing a critical role in delivering a top-notch user experience. Standing at this pivotal intersection between business goals and user needs is an awesome place to be—as long as we have the mindset, tools, and collaborators to make the most of it.

Through case studies, frameworks, and historical context, Yael Ben-David offers savvy and practical guidance to ensure our digital products support the user and the business—plus writers and designers!—all at once.

This book explores:

  • Techniques for communicating the value of UX writing 
  • How to organize resources and gain support to prioritize UX writing
  • Methods for collaborating with stakeholders to empower team members and create successful user experiences 
  • Steps for collecting, synthesizing, and sharing success metrics as mapped against business goals

Yael’s expansive and engaging deep dive into the business side of UX writing isn’t just for writers crafting microcopy or stakeholders juggling revenue and results—it’s for anyone working toward a successful project. Brisk yet actionable, data-driven yet down-to-earth, The Business of UX Writing is essential to every UX practitioner’s shelf.

As I turned the pages of Yael’s book, I found myself nodding nonstop (and occasionally shouting YES! to an empty room). Her words are as clear and pragmatic as the business case she makes. I look forward to the day we no longer need this book, because once and for all, it will have successfully answered the question, “What is the value of UX writing?”
