Ghostwriting is a freelance writing business opportunity. You provide a service for other people – writing for them, but you do not retain any rights for the work. This means you can not put your name on the work or take credit for it. Even though your writing will not be published as your own, you can still make an excellent living through Ghostwriting. A great way to start is by targeting internet business owners to find your first clients.
Most website owners want to make money from their sites, but in order to do that they need to attract traffic. One of the best ways to get people to come to their sites is to offer high quality content. Not everyone is a writer nor do they always have the time to write. That’s where you would come in. The website owner (or publisher) pays you to write content for them and will usually be a source of repeat business as the demand for content is constant. You may be asked to write small pieces, such as blog posts, or larger pieces, like an entire ebook.
What skills are needed to become a Ghostwriter?
To be a ghostwriter, you’ll need to be a good writer on various topics and have excellent researching skills. Some other skills you’ll need are: proofreading, a good vocabulary, grammar skills and the ability to meet the deadlines.
There aren’t many tools you will need to get started in a business like this. A good computer with a word-processing software, a comfortable computer chair, an internet connection and of course, a trusty dictionary and thesaurus.
Make it easy for potential clients to find you. You’ll need a good website that explains your services and how to contact you. Develop a marketing plan to get your business in front of your target market. There are internet marketing resources you can find online that you can tap for ideas.
As the internet grows and the demand for quality content grows with it, ghostwriters remain in high demand. This type of business offers a good flexible schedule and the ability to work from the comfort of your own home.
Many would-be novelists and freelancers work on the side as ghostwriters. The ability to take on as little or as much work as your schedule allows makes ghostwriting a great moonlighting business for many who are trying to transition from full time employment to full time entrepreneur or writer.
