Scripted W

Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States •

I have 15 years of experience as a health, medical, and wellness writer. I was the lead writer for a hospital for nearly a decade before beginning my freelance career. I focus exclusively on health and medical clients because I have a thorough understanding of the industry and a passion for all things health. I specialize in blog posts, website copy, feature articles, and marketing content. I graduated with honors from a top-rated journalism school, so things like grammar, style, and consistency are extremely important to me. But, I also have years of experience specifically writing for health, medical, and wellness clients, so I know the field. Health is my interest and my specialty. General writers who cover any topic won’t know your area of expertise like I do. I have the knowledge and ability to create the best copy for yo...

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.

These Great Companies Love Scripted Ghostwriters

Scripted has been a tremendous partner and value add for our business in helping us craft insider descriptions of cities and neighborhoods.

John Kobs
CEO, Apartmentlist.com and Autolist.com

Scripted has been a wonderful resource for original content across many topics. They are effective at pitching new ideas or taking raw thoughts and building them into well crafted masterpieces of content.

Koka Sexton
Global Senior Manager of Social Marketing, LinkedIn

Our acute need was for a dramatic quantity of high-quality content, written for a sophisticated medical audience, yet simultaneously consumer-friendly. That's not an easy task. We were lucky to have been matched with Scripted, whose adherence to quality exactly matched our needs.

Jerry Gulley
VP of Content Services, Healthine.com

We would've had to hire about five full-time writers to get the amount of content that we're currently getting from our partnership with Scripted," said Kelly. "It just makes total sense.

Brian Kelly
CMO, InsideView

We've been working with Scripted on about four blogs per month for the past 12 months. As the writers and Scripted have become familiar with the brand and the way we work, they have been a great partner and delivered fantastic content which we publish monthly on our platforms.

One of the most beneficial parts of the platform is how the content reviewing system works. We love the ways in which writers of different levels can be selected and the excellent customer support Scripted offers. We hope to continue this relationship well into the year.

The adidas blog has seen growth month over month. We get some great comments on social as well.

Katie Burt
Social Media Manager at Adidas Digital Sports

The biggest benefits of moving to Scripted have been improvements in the quality of writing, access to subject matter experts, and the ability to quickly complete large volumes of writing simultaneously.

Kathleen Booth
CEO, Quintain Marketing

As an agency, we manage our own blog plus several client blogs. That means we always have a lot of posts in the works. Scripted helps us to make sure we deliver quality writing on time.

We've been using Scripted for about eight months. The implementation of the agency dashboard lets us organize and manage projects by client, which is a huge help when you're dealing with a large volume of posts for a wide variety of clients. We can also restrict access to just the people who need access to each project. This helps keep inboxes less cluttered and more focused on what's important. The agency dashboard also allows us to favorite writers whose voice matches a particular client's brand, a big help when identifying the right writer for the job.

In the past, we produced content either in-house or with freelance writers. Scripted has been much more reliable, and the writing quality on Scripted has been consistently strong.

Chenery
Marketing Manager, Whittington Consulting

Using Scripted allows us to increase the frequency of our posts, and it's also a great forcing mechanism to plan in advance and pull together the topics and assignments for the upcoming month as well. It's a good forcing function as well just to make sure we're looking in advance at upcoming holidays or upcoming change.

I think the quality is excellent. I was incredibly impressed. I thought that the writers found the fun voice, and I think there was a consistency across all the blog posts.

Diana Adair
Director of Communications, Zazzle

I was particularly overwhelmed with a lot of work here at Eventbrite, so I didn't have a ton of time. It took very little effort on my end to work with Scripted and their account management service. My account manager Tasia Potasinski made it really easy and straightforward for me -- using Scripted definitely saved me time and energy.

After receiving the final drafts, I didn't have to do much editing. It took me no more than 10 or 15 minutes of reading through the white papers to just make sure everything was accurate. I think the quality of the content was strong and I felt like each writer did a fair amount of additional research. They really took the time to understand the topic and the context within the topic.

Megan Buell
Content & Inbound Marketing Manager, Eventbrite

Prior to using Scripted we relied heavily on in-house marketing teams to create content. We're into our second year working with Scripted, and over those two years we've increased our content capabilities greatly - easily doubled the content and ideas in the last year.

We use Scripted as an extension of our team and use the various services Scripted provides to supplement our research. Just getting a different perspective on an issue can help jumpstart an idea.The biggest benefit of Scripted is having access to a whole group of writers who offer a different perspective that makes our topics and ideas much greater in writing.

Senior Marketing Communications Manager, Cambro
