Every day, there are so many articles published online. Some of them are written by the people whose names are written on it and others are not. So when you hear the word “ghost”, don’t get all spooky on me. There are lots of people who get paid to write for others and take absolutely no credit for it. They are paid to write for CEOs, business gurus, celebrities, moms, educators, small business owners, business executives, and just about anyone with an idea.
So, let’s get down to business.
What is ghostwriting?
Ghostwriting is when a writer is hired to write content for an individual or a company but receiving no credit for it. In the process of ghostwriting, they are two parties involved;
The Client: This is the original author who hires a freelance writer to produce quality content from his/her idea for an agreed fee. Usually, the client has the idea for the book or article but hires a professional writer to convey their message professionally. So the writer comes up with creative ideas to develop the author’s idea and convey the message while the client takes the credit for the work produced.
The Ghost Writer: This is the professional who is hired to produce quality content. This writer takes the idea of the author and turns it into professional work. They are paid a fee for their services but are never heard of, hence the term “ghostwriter”.
Who are ghostwriters?
Ghostwriters are mostly freelance writers who are experienced in the particular field the client is looking for. They are tasked with producing professional content that serves the purpose of the client. There are lots of people who use these ghosts and we hardly know about them, that’s the whole point. They are like undercover agents; we see the work, but we rarely know they are there. Ghostwriters write blog posts, articles, write books, business documents, and even speeches. There are ghostwriters who specialize in a particular industry and others who are versatile and write for different industries.
Reasons why you need ghostwriters?
A ghostwriter takes your idea and brings it to life, so you may need to consider hiring a ghostwriter for different reasons. I’ll list a few;
- You don’t have the time to write a book.
- You need to produce quality content and you have neither the experience nor skills.
- You have recently hit a block on the really great book idea you have.
Consider hiring a ghostwriter as an investment. If you’re really busy with your main hustle, or you are experiencing writer’s block, and you need to produce quality and professional content to reach your target audience, you should hire a professional writer so you don’t waste your idea. They make the process simple and do all the work for you.
Whatever you do, whoever you are, you have great ideas; and if you’re not a writer, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t turn your ideas into content. All you need to do is search for a ghostwriter experienced in the field you need. Instead of juggling every task already in your life with writing a book, seek out a ghostwriter who is experienced in your field and write a great book without stopping your life.
