064 – editorr – An App You Need to Know with Heather Robison

Heather-Robison-SQEpisode 064 – Heather Robison is co-owner and creative director of editorr.

This is a professional copy-editing and proof-reading app where you get immediate online service 24/7 with editing done by real people.

Heather’s prior experience includes event planning and corporate marketing for shopping center developers.

She’s now in business with her husband, Brian.

While working in Singapore, Brian came up with the idea for editorr. The need for an on-demand proof-reading service was strong. Business in Singapore moves fast and many are not native English speakers & writers.

editorr launched to the public in April 2016 and they currently have over 5,000 registered users. Small business owners, bloggers, job seekers and students all use editorr for their day-to-day writing.
