Articles Related To Ghostwriters


If you’re considering hiring a ghostwriter for the first time, you’ll want to keep the following in mind.

Understand your needs:

Before hiring a ghostwriters, first discover your needs and expectations for them. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want to hire the ghostwriter for one project or multiple?
  • What type of text do I want a book, article, blog, anthology, or e-book?
  • How many pages or words do I want my text to be?
  • What is my deadline?
  • What type of writing do I want, formal, casual, or academic?
  • What is my budget?
  • How much experience should the ghostwriter have?

Search freelance ghostwriter:

Toogit freelance ghostwriter provide ghostwriting services at Toogit.com. Creating a job post on Toogit include information such as your needs and requirements and your budget. Keep the tone friendly to attract possible candidates. Searching best freelance ghostwriters on Toogit can ensure that you get a high quality ghostwriter who best fits your specific project. Ghostwriters on Toogit are highly skilled and talented. Hiring Ghostwriters on Toogit is quite affordable as compared to a full-time employee and you can save up to 50% in business cost by hiring Ghostwriters on Toogit.

Take interview of shortlisted candidates:

Once you’ve shortlisted a ghostwriter candidates have a conversation about your expectations, needs, and how the person envisions the collaboration. Ask any questions you have and answer any questions the candidate may have for you. An interview can help you figure out if you and the potential ghostwriter have right chemistry to work together. It can even offer you a way of the person’s communication skills.

Review his previous work and ask for writing sample on your project:

Request a freelancer to provide several writing samples of works they’ve ghostwritten. Reviewing his previous work will minimize the risk of hiring a ghostwriter with very little experience or who doesn’t have a style you prefer. After that ask freelancer to provide a one page writing sample on your project within a specific period of time. Review every text to see if it’s customized to your project and meets your expectations. This may ensure you hire the best ghostwriter for your specific project.

Agree on project details:

Most ghostwriters have standard contracts they use. That’s fine, you probably don’t need to involve lawyers, but there are many deal terms you would like to make positive you discuss properly.

  1. Price and payment terms: Make sure you're very clear on how much you're paying, and when those payments are due. There are a lot of ways to pay, however the vast majority of excellent ghostwriters can use a flat fee structure that means you're paying a set amount for a defined book of a defined size or scope. There are some that use flat fee + hourly for revisions beyond a certain point. That’s fine too. On payment terms, confirm that you are paying in installments and not paying all the money up front. Those installments can be time based, or tied to specific deliverable.
  2. Deliverables: Part of the payment discussion will be what the deliverables are. The very best and most expensive ghostwriters will be somewhat loose with this, they can afford to be when they are charging $100k+ for a manuscript. You are paying them to just handle everything, whatever it takes, and for that price, they will. Do not let a ghostwriter just go with a straight hourly fee, unless you are cool with them potentially running up their bill. Most of the good ones will have a set price for a specific set of deliverables, and then an hourly rate for time beyond that.
  3. Rights and Royalties: Make sure you retain 100% of all the rights to your book. Not only copyright, but the print license, all film, rights, TV, foreign, and adaptations rights. Do not let any ghostwriter try to keep any rights to your book, ever.
  4. Plagiarism protection: This won’t be a concern with a good ghostwriter, but make sure you are indemnified against them stealing someone else’s content. No good ghostwriter would ever think of doing this, so they’ll have no issue putting in the contract.

You’re a successful businessperson, you have a book in you. You know you need to write this book for many reasons but you haven’t done it. And the fact is, as busy as you are, you probably aren’t ever going to do it yourself. So what now? Hire a ghostwriter to write your business book.

The title and duties of a "ghostwriter" have typically, very suitably, been shrouded in mystery. In previous times, the role of a ghostwriter was mostly reserved for writing books, speeches, biographies, and similar material. Whereas these services are certainly still alive and well within the industry, because of the unprecedented demand for content in today's marketplace, the roles of ghostwriters have changed, along with their potential worth.

If you're looking to take your content of books to the next level, a ghostwriter may be the missing piece you have been looking for. Here are the main reasons why, and how to go about hiring the right one.

Why you should hire a ghostwriter

  1. Ghostwriter save your time: Ghostwriter is huge time saver, this is a clear benefit of ghostwriting, probably the main benefit. If you'll be able to afford a ghostwriter, then it means that your time is very valuable. It takes a normal author 500-800 hours to put in writing a nonfiction book by themselves. Ghostwriters can reduce that time as much as 50 and 80 hours of your time commitment all the way down to the tens of hours (or even less).
  2. Ghostwriter help to build quick brand awareness: Ghostwriters help companies and personalities build brand awareness faster if you allocating time to publish quality stories once a quarter or month, hiring a reputable ghostwriter can speed up the process of getting your brand’s story out there. You have to manage company business and ghostwriter only have to write.
  3. Don’t need to learn how to write a book: One of the reasons it takes so long for many people to write a book is that the method of writing itself is very complicated and difficult to learn. A book has a very different structure and set of rules from almost any other type of writing or communication, which makes writing a book harder than writing anything. Sometimes people who start their books don’t finish them. A ghostwriter, by writing the book for you, ensures that the manuscript does, in fact, get finished.
  4. Ghost written content is authentic: Most people think a ghostwriter diminishes authenticity. This can happen if someone (or a company) changes ghostwriters often; their voice diminishes quickly. Ghostwriting is far from inauthentic. The process of ghostwriting a book generally involves deep engagement by the named author. While, yes, ghostwriter sits down and “does the work” of putting words on the page, the process requires a high level of intellectual involvement between author and writer.

How to evaluate a ghostwriter

Ghostwriting has been an opaque market for a very long time. Whereas Toogit finally made it simple to find a ghostwriter. It’s time to evaluate them, here is the basic process by which you can assess them and figure out if one is a good match.

  1. Understand the skill level you needed and price: World-class ghostwriters are hard to find, and expensive as well. Enter your search knowing how skilled of a ghostwriter you would like. For example, if your book is more of a “how to” book, and most of the content is going to come directly from interviews with you, then you don’t need a first ghostwriter. You simply need someone who will turn what you say into a book. However, if you’re writing fiction, then you need someone who is a skilled in writing. They need to be able to take whatever concepts you have, complete analysis to supplement them and then write it beautifully.
  2. Ask about their process: This is during the interview of course, you need to really be sure of their process. This is one of the major drawbacks of ghost writing; there's no defined process, and each ghostwriter does it their own method. So you would like to know how they do it. You want to hear they are highly responsive, and extremely cooperative. But believe it or not, you truly want someone who sets good boundaries. This means they are clear about the number of revisions, number of notes, how they want to get information from you, how they want to interact, etc. A ghostwriter who agrees to anything or is very vague about details is a ghostwriter who doesn’t have a process, who is desperate to get your money, and probably won’t deliver a good manuscript. A good ghostwriter is that the opposite. They’re polite, but they’re very firm and they’re very clear because they know what they are doing.
  3. Read their previous books: Any ghostwriter should provide a complete list of books they’ve ghostwritten. Reading a book written by a ghostwriter you’re thinking about hiring, especially one that relates to your subject, is an extremely helpful way to see how a ghostwriter might tell your story. You’ll get to see how they convey large quantities of information, what the technical aspects of their writing, and really, what’s extremely necessary, is however participating they are on the page. You should be able to tell if they've written books similar to yours, which means they've written in the same point of view, same style, same narrative structure, etc.
  4. Interview them: A great ghostwriter expresses your idea in even better terms than you would. So what you’re looking for is someone who not only understands what you are trying to say, but who can bring something else to the table. That’s what you want to see in the interview: that they are not only getting your idea, but they are adding to it in conversation. A big part of this is getting along with them. Do you like talking to them? Are they good active listeners? Are they adding to the conversation?

Ghostwriting can be a great career if you are a talented writer who is full of ideas and good at analysis and at capturing the style and tone of various publications and of clients whom you'll be working with. However there are some things you should be clear about before starting to work as a ghostwriter.

What is Ghostwriter?

I think most of us know what a Ghostwriter is. As defined by Wikipedia, it’s:

“A person who is hired to write literary or journalistic works, speeches, or other text that are officially credited to another person as the author.”

A writer who is paid to write articles, books, reports, stories, website material or other content that is officially credited to another person is called a ghostwriter. A ghostwriter writes a piece of work, such as non-fiction or fiction, but does not put their name on it. Political leaders, celebrities, website owners, and executives typically hire ghostwriters to draft or edit their written material.

If you want to make money telling other people’s stories on the sly, you’ll have to be a good listener, a good researcher and a good writer. If you can do all that, you could make a living from this type of freelance work.

What does a ghostwriter do?

Ghostwriters are paid to write for someone else and allow them to put their name on that. Ghostwriter is their secret weapon behind the scenes. There is a high demand for ghostwriters to provide a wide range of content, like blog posts, articles, non-fiction books, and even celebrity autobiographies. Websites perpetually want fresh and interesting content. Many of us dream of getting a bestselling book, but simply don’t have the writing skills. You will satisfy all these needs and get paid doing something you like.

How to become a Ghostwriter?

  • Gain experience: Ghostwriting is an excellent source of income and a great career alternative for an accomplished writer, it's certainly not an entry-level position. If you haven’t been published yourself, it’s unlikely you’re able to write to a publishable standard for someone else. Seriously, how are you able to write a book for someone else, in their voice, when you’ve never written one yourself? Better yet, write two or three. Shoot for a minimum of 50,000 words each so you get a sense for writing something that long dealing with the nuances of voice, narrative, flow, etc.

This makes sense on two levels: firstly, you need to be able to market yourself as a successful and experienced writer to potential clients who will be paying you to write for them. Secondly, you’ll need the experience you’ve acquired so far to navigate through a ghostwriting project.

  • Identify your niche: While it is great to experience with various things when starting out as a ghostwriter, most ghostwriters have a “niche”: a unique point. Are you working on lyrics for top bands? Do you write business books? Make sure to concentrate on one thing. while it’s tempting to want a broad ghostwriting portfolio, having a specialist field can make you an professional in that niche, and you're more likely to get better, high-quality ghostwriting work in that area.
  • Ability to work on tight deadlines: As a ghostwriter, you have to gather a deep understanding of your client’s needs and expectations. At the beginning of a project, you’ll get brief descriptions of project, outlining complete guidelines, expectations, and deadlines. And deadlines you'll get, you can’t expect an entire publishing team to wait for you while you sit around waiting for inspiration to strike.

If you’re an experienced writer, you’ll already know how to establish a regular, hardworking rhythm that works for you. However, it’s necessary to keep in mind that a ghostwriting project isn't something that may be completed in your own time. Do you have enough self-discipline to visualize a project through over a long period of time? Some ghostwritten projects take a few years to write, and procrastination is all too simple when you think you have all that time to achieve it.

  • Research and communication skills required: Ghostwriting isn't the simplest job in the world. It requires smart communication skills and extreme patience in some cases for you to be able to do the work. You’re required to be a listener and a researcher. This sounds simple, but if you happen to be working with an uncommunicative subject, then it will really feel like a bloodshed.

Ghostwriters not only write up the story but do the majority of the legwork. If it’s an autobiography, you’ll require a top-notch interview skills. For other non-fiction ghostwriting, you’ll most likely be researching away.

Quality research also provides you the opportunity to confirm the information that your client has given you. Doing this doesn’t mean that you just disbelieve whatever they’ve told you. You’re simply fact-checking and qualifying the information that you just have been given that is your job.

  • Put your ego aside: Ghostwriting isn't about you. It’s about your client. It’s obvious that you need to be an excellent writer but you also need to be comfortable switching your writing style to encapsulate your client’s voice, even though you're thinking that yours is better.

As a ghostwriter, your name won’t appear on the cover and the most you'll hope for is a thank you in the acknowledgements section, so there’s no area to enjoy dreams of seeing your name in print. You would possibly want to shout about your achievements but remember that you’re being paid to stay quiet.

If you can persuade your ego to step aside to put in the diligence for someone else, you'll gain publishing success and build a solid, skilled reputation through your ghostwritten work.
