There’s something you need to know if you want to succeed in business and earn a great income online – content is currency. If you have content on the web, then you have a business.
What if you don’t want to write for yourself or you feel like you can’t write well? This is something a lot of people I talk to deal with. They know they need content to succeed, no matter what their business is. But, they just don’t have the time or inclination to write all the content they need.
And that’s the thing right there – you can’t just have a “little bit” of content on the web. It’s important to have a steady stream of high quality content surrounding your business. I’m talking ebooks, reports, sales copy, email copy, blog posts, and everything else that makes the web go ‘round these days. Your content should really be everywhere around the web where your customers are likely to be.
That might lead to a dilemma. The lack of a desire to write content has sometimes caused people to neglect their web business pretty much all together because it’s all so daunting.
That’s not what you want to do. You want to find a solution that will allow you to generate a fantastic income from content without having to write all of that content yourself.
Hiring others to ghostwrite for you might be the answer you need.
When you hire others to ghostwrite for you, you can generate an income in ways you probably never thought possible. Finally, it’s not up to you and you alone to write content. You don’t have to procrastinate and put your business off anymore because someone else is writing the content you need.
Hiring Others to Ghostwrite for You
You have a variety of options when you hire others to ghostwrite for you. Some people hesitate to hire others because they don’t want to give up control. You’re not giving up control totally, though, and you can decide exactly how much control you do want to give up.
For example, you can hire others to turn your outline and notes into books and content. So really, you’ll be doing the research and creating the outline with your thoughts and unique angle and they’ll just put it into finished form for you.
Or, maybe you’re not so much of an idea generator so that doesn’t appeal to you. That’s okay too. You can hire a ghostwriter to come up with ideas, outlines, and rough drafts for you that you turn into finished content.
Or, you can set it up so your ghostwriter does both for you. They can come up with the ideas, do the research, write the content, and turn it into a finished product.
There are great ghostwriters out there who will fill whatever role you need them to fill when it comes to content.
Who to Hire As Your Ghostwriter
It’s so important to hire someone you know (or will get to know before hiring) and trust and who will do a really good job. There are, unfortunately, some ghostwriters out there who won’t be able to match your voice or understand your audience. That’s a waste of your time.
That’s an important point that many people who are new to hiring ghostwriters miss. You have to give people you hire a solid understanding of what you want and need for your content. As good as many ghostwriters are, they are not mind-readers.
You need to inform them about who your audience is and what they need and want. You can send them links that will help them understand your audience.
Also, make sure they understand your goals. They should know why you want the content you’re hiring them to write.
It can also be really helpful if you send them links or samples of the style and voice you want them to capture in their writing. Since you’ve hired them for ghostwriting (content that will be in your name), you want them to very closely emulate what you would write for yourself, if you had the time or inclination.
There are so many different ways you can hire ghostwriters and freelancers. You can hire private freelancers, freelancers through bidding sites, freelancers through content companies, and so on. Look around and see who stands out to you. You might be able to get recommendations from others you know who use ghostwriters.
Remember that this is your business. You don’t want to receive content back that is unusable or end up spending more time editing the content than it would have taken you to write in the first place.
Spend some time finding the right freelancer before hiring. Maybe give them a small job at first and then ramp the job up once you know you can trust them and they deliver good work.
What Will You Hire A Ghostwriter For?
It’s time to think about exactly what you’ll use ghostwriters for. If you want to generate an income by hiring ghostwriters to write content for your business, then it’s important to have a plan in mind. I’ll start by telling you a simple plan you can use to generate an income by hiring ghostwriters right away.
You can hire ghostwriters to write information products for you. Give them an outline or solid understanding of your ideas and audience and have them do the research and turn it into a finished product. You can then do the work of selling your new info-products. It really can be as simple as that.
You can hire a ghostwriter to write ebooks, kindle books, information products, physical books, and more.
They can create books and products you can put up for sale to earn from very quickly. Product creation can be very lucrative, and hiring ghostwriters is one way to enter that side of online business without having to do all of the writing yourself.
You can also hire ghostwriters to provide other content to support your business. You can hire them for things like blog posts and articles, for example. It’s so important to have a lot of content out there these days, and hiring ghostwriters to write blog posts and articles can help you get more traffic and grow your authority even if you aren’t writing the content yourself.
If you struggle with copywriting, then you may want to hire a ghostwriter/copywriter to write your sales copy. Note that not all ghostwriters are trained in writing sales copy, but it can definitely be worth it if you find someone who is and can write copy that converts well and helps you earn more.
You can choose to hire ghostwriters for just one of these things or all of the above. Figure out what you need in your business, what your budget is, and maybe what you don’t enjoy doing in your business. If there’s a certain type of writing or content that you really don’t like to do, then hire someone to do it for you.
Remember; don’t just hire a ghostwriter you’ve never worked with before to write an entire book for you. Test them out first. Hire them for small jobs and scale things up as you gain confidence in them.
It can be really helpful to set up milestones and check-ins along the way so you know your ghostwriter is working on your book or whatever the project is and that it will turn out how you expected it to turn out.
