Copywriting specialist in Internet of Things (IoT)

Need a writer who understands IoT across industries and disciplines? The IoT is a rapidly growing network of connected objects that are able to collect and exchange data using embedded sensors, according to a Business Insider article by Andrew Meola (“Internet of Things devices, applications & examples.” December 19, 2016).

Startups, supply chain software companies, controls integrators, specialty contractors, HVAC manufacturers and computer peripheral manufacturers are among the clients served by Marcia Jedd & Associates for copywriting and media relations involving IoT-based products, services and applications. Clients appreciate the ability to outsource to a marketing communications specialist who not only understands the IoT but can write about it intelligently

More about the IoT

The IoT brings together objects and sensors as communication data points under a web-based system to coordinate functions with or without human intervention. In other words, the IoT puts  connectivity and intelligence into devices. Our lives will be affected at a fundamental level by the IoT as big data, analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence intersect with humans and machines.

In 2018, consumer IoT-based devices, such as digital assistance devices and fitness trackers, are estimated at over 7 billion connected things. Did you know that businesses (cross-industry and verticals) will employ approximately 4.1 billion IoT-connected devices in 2018? And cross-industry devices such as those in the smart building and building automation marketplace (LED lighting, HVAC and other building systems) will lead business IoT growth.
