Why Working With A Local Writer Matters

Updated: Jan 6, 2020

I've been blessed to build relationships with some amazing small-business owners over the years, and one thing I hear a lot is how glad they are to be working with a local writer.

Make no mistake about it, Edit This® is not the only writing and editing services company out there. However, the fact that we are so close to home and offer the versatility to tackle everything from blogs to website copy, press releases, and more is a major selling point.

Rather than work with a content writer in another state, they have a writer who can:

* Meet with them face-to-face

* Learn about their business

* Be easily accessible

* Take a "to-do" off their plate

* Save them time and money

We cover clients from A to Z nationwide but are a stone's throw away from anyone needing a writer or editor in Denton, Corinth, Lake Dallas, Shady Shores, Hickory Creek, Lewisville, Flower Mound, Highland Village, Argyle, and the rest of DFW.

A professional content writer and editor at your fingertips

Business owners prefer working with a local writer for a variety of reasons. Below is a more detailed explanation of the bullet points above.

Personal interaction

As a content and copywriter, being able to sit with someone face-to-face and learn about their company and why they do what they do helps deliver unique and authentic written content that tells a story. For the business owner, that interaction spurs creativity, collaboration, and makes them feel like their message is getting across properly.


It's all about making life easier on yourself. Meeting with a local writer beats wasting time with back-and-forth emails, phone calls, and teleconferences with someone out of state or in another country. Hiring a writer who is far away creates more problems than solutions.

Verifiable reputation

Working with a local writer means they're likely out and about in the same community, traveling in the same circles, and working with many of the same business partners. If everyone likes and respects them, that creates peace of mind.

Saving money

Local content writers and copywriters are more apt to create prices that fit every type of budget – mostly because they can see with their own two eyes how a particular business operates. They want to do all they can to work within an owner's means.
