How to Hire a Ghostwriter: A Guide for Busy Entrepreneurs
You want a personal brand but writing is not your thing. Here’s how to hire someone who can do it for you.
You have a brilliant idea for a book, a blog post, a newsletter or you simply want to establish your personal brand. You know it will boost your authority, grow your audience, and showcase your expertise. But there's one problem: you don't have the time, the skill, or the desire to write it yourself.
That's where I come in. I'm a ghostwriter who can write winning content for you. And I let you take all the credit as the author.
I can help you turn your vision into reality, without you having to lift a finger (or a pen).
But how do you find a ghostwriter or hire me as one who can deliver quality work that matches your voice, style, and goals?
Here are some simple steps to follow:
Understand the specific needs of your project
What is the purpose and audience of your content?
What is the topic, genre, and format of your content?
How long and detailed do you want it to be?
What is your timeline and budget?
Reach out to me with a compelling project
Use my contact form or email address to start a conversation
What makes your project unique and exciting? What benefits such as exposure, testimonials, or referrals would you offer to your ghostwriter (in this case, me)
Evaluate my writing samples and testimonials
Check out my portfolio and testimonials page to see samples of my previous work that are relevant to your project
Read my samples carefully and pay attention to my flow, logic, and creativity
Optionally, request a short paid sample based on your project brief, to see how I handle your specific topic and style
Schedule a free consultation call with me
Book a free consultation call with me via Calendly or Zoom, depending on your preference
Ask me questions about my background, experience, process, availability, communication style, and rates
Tell me about your opinions on your project idea, your suggestions for improvement, and your expectations from me as your ghostwriter
Accept my offer and sign the contract
Receive my offer letter that outlines the scope of work, deliverables, timeline, payment terms, and contract details
Review and sign the contract that covers all the aspects of our collaboration, including confidentiality, ownership rights, revisions policy, and dispute resolution
Once you accept my offer and sign the contract, we can start working together on your project
Hiring me as your ghostwriter can be a smart move for busy entrepreneurs who want to create high-value content without spending hours on writing.
By following these steps, you can find and hire me as your ghostwriter who can help you achieve your content goals and grow your brand.
And don't worry about me spilling the beans about our collaboration. I'm like Varys from Game of Thrones: I have no desire for recognition or fame. I only serve the realm...of writing.
Or maybe you're more into sci-fi. I'm like R2-D2 from Star Wars: I'm loyal, reliable, and full of surprises. I can save the day with my skills.
You get the idea.
I'm here to help you shine as a thought leader, while staying in the shadows as a ghostwriter.
So what are you waiting for? Contact me today and let's get started on your project!
