Local copywriters are good for business in several important ways. The local copywriters have knowledge about the immediate area and are familiar with local businesses and the community. They have a better feel for what will sell to, or work with, the people in the area near a business. There may be local references or terms that only the local copywriter will pick up on, but that distant copywriters would totally miss. Using local copywriters is a good way to support the local community also, and help to keep talent in an area instead of losing it to larger cities. And what is good for the local community, and local copywriters, will also be good for the local businesses. When a person has lived in, or grown up in a community, they have personal knowledge that is invaluable, and that out of area people will not have access to. This can be especially helpful in a career such as copywriting that depends heavily upon experience and knowledge. There may be just a few local copywriters, but they can be found by using local advertising medium such as an online directory, or area business directories. Just check under writers or copywriters and track down the local copywriters. If your company needs a historical view or background information, the best place to start would be with the local copywriters who have lived in an area for a long time, and who have firsthand knowledge of the local history. They may have personal experiences or knowledge of local companies, people, or history that will not be found in books at a library.
