What Does a Ghostwriter Do?

Ghostwriters help bring your content ideas to life without stealing the spotlight. Whether you're working on a nonfiction book, engaging LinkedIn posts, or a thought leadership article to build your personal brand, a ghostwriter can execute your vision to perfection and you still get to put your name on the finished piece.

When you hire a ghostwriter, you form a completely confidential partnership where you explain your goals and take a collaborative approach to the writing process to ensure the finished piece matches your voice. In many cases, clients provide ghostwriters with detailed outlines and rough drafts, but ghostwriters are also capable of producing fantastic content for you even if they're starting from scratch.

Of course, not all ghostwriters share the same skills. It takes years of experience to become adaptable and capable enough to effectively adopt a client's voice as a ghostwriter and learn how to expand upon their ideas without overshadowing them. Here at Scripted, we're proud to connect you with the industry's top freelance ghostwriters, including those capable of proofreading, rewriting, or starting from square one.

Where to Hire a Good Ghostwriter

Here's the thing about hiring someone to create content for you: Your colleague's favorite ghostwriter won't necessarily be the perfect match for your writing projects. This is because every person deserves a ghostwriter who can empathize with their point-of-view and adopt a similar voice, whether that's fun, serious, formal, or conversational.

It's equally important that you find a ghostwriter who is experienced in the subject matter or industry behind your project, especially if you're hiring them for a business book or highly-technical white papers. With that in mind, the process of finding that person may feel completely overwhelming.

Since 2006, Scripted has been helping individuals and businesses connect with talented, versatile writers who have proven experience working on similar projects. With our writing services, we make it easy to find and hire the perfect ghostwriter for your project in virtually any category, from speech writing to product descriptions.

Types of Content Ghostwriters Create

Some of the most popular types of content that Scripted's ghostwriters can create for you include:

  • Thought leadership articles
  • Press releases
  • Technical documents
  • Professional letters
  • Social media posts
  • E-books
  • Emails
  • Video scripts

In addition to the above, Scripted's talent pool consists of countless writers in other industries capable of fulfilling practically any project you send their way, including web pages, quizzes, infographics, and more.

Post Your Project

You might not have all the details planned out yet, but you can start getting matched with the best ghostwriters for your project even if you don't have a topic in mind at the moment. Here at Scripted, we give you multiple options to help you find writers in the way that's most meaningful and efficient for you:

  • Request Ideas: If you don't have a concrete idea yet, ask our talented writers to come up with some for you! You'll receive multiple ideas from our ghostwriting pool based on the information you provide, like the type of content you wish to create and your target audience.
  • Request Proposals: If you already know what you want created, try posting a project with a request for proposal instead. Our writers will review the content brief and those who are available and qualified will submit a proposal explaining who they are, why they're a great fit, and how they would approach your project.
  • Use SmartMatch: If you have all the details figured out and you just want to start working with one of our best writers, try using SmartMatch. Our SmartMatch system will automatically send your project request out to ghostwriters who have successfully completed similar projects. The first one to opt into the project will start working with you immediately.

At Scripted, we believe the client should always be in control, which is why we strive to uphold transparent and user-friendly processes. However, if you just don't have time to manage your own projects, we can step in and help. With our Enterprises plan,

Start Collaborating

One of the best things about Scripted is that you don't need to worry about complications like signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with your writer. With strict standards and policies, you can rest assured that the legalities of ghostwriting have been taken care of for you. All you need to do is pick the best writer for your project and start collaborating.

The level of collaboration between you and your writer is truly up to you. Our writers are trained to look at your job posting and execute based on the requirements and examples you provide. If necessary, they'll reach out to you for more information or you can contact them while they're working on your project using our built-in messaging system.

Finalize and Publish

To save time, before your first draft ever hits your dashboard, Scripted has multiple quality checks in place to be certain that the content you see is as close to perfect as possible. These processes check content for plagiarism and signs of AI usage, and we have strict standards that prohibit both on our platform.

Once writer's draft passes through our automated checks, it will also be reviewed by one of our skilled editors who will double-check that the writer has followed all of your requirements and that the draft is free of any pesky grammar errors.

In the likely chance that the writer nailed it the first time, your draft is ready-to-publish with no additional action on your part. Of course, we know that fine-tuning is sometimes necessary. Depending on your plan, you can request one or two revisions to finalize the project — and you'll never have to pay for content that you don't absolutely love.

Power your marketing with great writing.

Tips for Working With a Non-Fiction Ghostwriter

It's not always easy to find a ghostwriter you love, especially if you've tried before finding out about Scripted's talented pool. However, even once you match with the right freelance writer, there are a few more things you should do to help make sure the experience is everything you want it to be.
  • Start with clear guidelines to help your writer understand your voice and vision. The more specific you are, the better equipped your writer will be to execute and create something that you're excited to read.
  • Don't be afraid to share your past work with your ghostwriter, whether it's something you wrote yourself or something you had another ghostwriter create for you. If you have a moment, consider highlighting the nuances you love or hate to give the writer an example of your ideal voice.
  • If a writer doesn't get all the little details perfect the first time, take the time to add specific and constructive comments explaining what you would like changed. When possible, provide examples to help writers understand what you're after.
  • When your project is complete, take a second to leave a rating for their work. Here on Scripted, a writer's ratings are visible on their profile, so you're helping future clients make a sound decision when they're trying to choose a writer for their own project.

Ultimately, the more specific you get, the better equipped your content writer will be to craft a piece that aligns with all of your ideas and goals. And, if you ever need help, our support team here at Scripted is more than happy to step in and make sure you and your writer are on the same page.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Ghostwriters

Why should I hire a ghostwriter?
Ghostwriters can help you bring to life the writing projects that you don't feel you have the time or skill to complete on your own. A book ghostwriter, for instance, can help you start or finish that New York Times Bestseller that you've always dreamed of creating, but simply keep putting off.
How much does a ghostwriter cost?
A ghostwriter's pricing is largely dependent on the type of work they're providing. Fiction writing tends to cost more at an average rate of 24 to 30 cents per word whereas non-fiction ghostwriting may cost closer to 10 to 15 cents per word, but this varies depending on the writer's experience and the scope of the project.
What do I look for in a ghostwriter?
A few things you should look for when hiring a ghostwriter are the quality writing samples, a history of success in your industry, and a go-getter attitude. You want to work with a ghostwriter who is passionate about their work and, by extension, fully invested in making sure that your project exceeds expectations.
How do I hire a ghostwriter?
When hiring a ghostwriter, it's important to understand the little details that go along with your project and transaction. This means finding a platform that offers an escrow service and payment protection, especially if you're working on a major project like a book. You should also find a service that offers collaborative tools that will provide you with a skilled copy editor to ensure the process goes smoothly.

Stop Wasting Time with Low-Quality Ghostwriting Services

If you've ever used other content writing platforms or tried to hire a writer on your own using a site like Upwork, you've probably encountered lackluster ghostwriters before. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon to hire a ghostwriter only to find that they don't listen to your requests, value your feedback, or strive to breathe life into your vision.

Without a doubt, spending time and money on low-quality ghostwriting services can take a lot out of you, but don't lose hope. Here at Scripted, we put every writer on our platform through a rigorous application and review process, ultimately only accepting 2% of talent. That means you won't have to worry about accidentally hiring a ghostwriter who just doesn't meet the mark.

Once you start working with Scripted's team, you won't believe the difference between what amateurs deliver and what professionals who are devoted to their craft are able to create for you. Plus you can see it for yourself with a 30-day free trial.
