From Our Founder

Through the years I have seen firsthand how website, sales, and marketing copy that isn’t edited destroys trust and hurts businesses. I got tired of it in my other businesses, so we built EditorNinja to solve our own problems. Turns out, a lot of people have the same problems. We’re here to serve; let us show you how we stand out!
