How to make a living ghostwriting
Are you thinking about making a career out of writing? If you aren’t sure where to start, then you might become a ghostwriter. In this blog post, I’m going to explore ways in which you can be a writer and make a living ghostwriting.
You’ll learn how to find jobs, create interesting content, and more. If you’re ready to get started, then let’s go! A ghostwriter is someone who writes content on behalf of someone else. In our blog, we refer to this type of work as ghostwriting. Clients hire a ghostwriter to author articles, books, reports, etc. But this writing can also apply to other types of content, like websites, videos, sales pages, landing pages, and more. Most times what you write you give up all rights to it. The client pays you to make it show they wrote it.
When looking for copywriting jobs, you can often find ghostwriting jobs as well. When you look through job websites it is an effective way to find both. These websites show job listings that can help you find ghostwriting gigs. For example, On the Pro Blogger Job Board, you can apply for jobs ghostwriting for bloggers. Likewise, with Upwork. You can find a wide variety of freelance writing projects, including ghostwriting.
When you land a writing gig, they will give you various instructions. But before getting started, it’s important that you understand what the client wants. When working with a writing client, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Each client has different expectations.
But there are core requirements that every ghostwriter needs to adhere to.
1. Be professional. Always be professional in all your interactions with clients. For example, don’t make a joke when communicating with a client.
Even if a client seems unprofessional, you should not act like they do, always keep it professional. The same goes for communicating with a client, always be respectful in all communications.
2. Be on time with deliveries. As a ghostwriter, the client will expect you to be on time for deliveries. If you are going to be late with a delivery, then the client may assume that you’re unprofessional. To prevent this from happening, be sure to set clear deadlines and always let them know if something happens that will make you late.
3. Be reliable. Clients will expect your word to be your bond. If you make a commitment to a client, be sure to back it up with action. For example, if you promise to deliver a piece of content by a certain date, be sure that you deliver it on time.
4. Be consistent. It’s important for ghostwriters to deliver high-quality content. To deliver high-quality content, it’s important that you set aside time for writing. The more you write, the more clients you’ll get work from.
5. Make revisions. Clients may not notice every error, but you should still make revisions. By revising your content before delivering it to the client, you end any confusion.
