Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Ghostwriters
Digital marketing is critical to business success these days. You have to publish quality content on a regular basis so your audience has new material to engage with. But quality content requires a writer who knows how to create content that stands out in the sea of online information. Most companies don’t have skilled digital content creators on staff, so the simplest solution is to hire a ghostwriter. Ghostwriters can manage all of your business or personal brand-building content and save you time and money in the process.
The cost of hiring a ghost writer depends on two things: the quality of writing you need and the amount you can afford to spend. Do you need a writer with deep subject matter expertise? Or are you looking for more general writing skills around a variety of content topics? According to Sprout Social, you can find a writer in the $25 to $150 range for one short- to medium-length article. It's fair to expect that ghost writers with more experience, knowledge and skills will charge in the upper range or higher.
When hiring a ghost writer, make sure you know what you are looking for from the outset. Clearly define your project goals, including the scope of your project, timelines, how often you will need content, length/format of content, brand tone/voice, style guide, etc. Write this out like you would a job posting.
If you’re ready to start looking for a ghost writer, there are several options to help you find one.
Ask around. Tapping into your staff and your network of business associates for recommendations and referrals.
Conduct independent searches. Search online for ‘ghost writers for hire.’ This gives you access to writers who work independently and can provide their rates, availability, etc.
Use content platforms. Content platforms are helpful because they allow you to tap into a pool of high-quality, pre-vetted writers across a variety of industries. The best platforms also help manage the entire writing process, which is helpful if you don't have the bandwidth to oversee it every step of the way.
When hiring a ghost writer, try to assess their techincal writing skills, writing background, subject matter knowledge or industry experience, voice/tone, ability to meet deadlines, rates, and availability.
