About Editor Group

About

Editor Group was founded in 1998 with the mission to do one thing well: words.

We write, research, edit, proofread, advise and coach to help you use the power of great writing and perfect grammar to grow sales, secure investment or achieve success in government.

Often, our biggest contribution is simply to provide the fast, expert help you need to get writing and editing projects done so you can move on to other tasks.

When it comes to delivering smart, high-quality sales and marketing, thought leadership, content marketing, investor relations and community campaigns, we’re the partner you can rely on.
