What is Ghostwriting?
with You may have seen an article or a friend talk about a writer who is ghostwriting for their book, blog, or social media. What is ghostwriting?
Ghostwriting is a writer for hire who writes for your business, personality, or profile, usually without a byline or credit for their writing. A ghostwriter takes your ideas and content and turns them into written form for your particular platform. This may be social media, a new book, video scripting or a newsletter. The ghostwriter can have credit (as in a byline for the article) a co-author position or remain completely anonymous. Here’s an example of a ghostwritten blog.
Sally, a boutique owner, would like to increase her SEO for her website by writing content about her store, the brands she carries, and her new line of seasonal clothing. Sally doesn’t have the time to write as she is wearing many hats when running her store. She hires a ghostwriter to write consistent weekly content for her website blog; however, Sally’s name is attributed to the blog posts, making her creator of the material.
What Can a Ghostwriter Write?
Ghostwriters can write a myriad of different content, depending on their specialty. Examples of content which a ghostwriter can write for you are:
While some ghostwriters have a writing background, others have marketing experience in addition to writing and can assist you with a marketing campaign, social media schedule or a click funnel to move clients into your paid realm.
