When Should I Hire a Ghostwriter?
Many people start off wanting to write a book. Next, you have to find out what type of book to write, then conjure up chapters of content for your book, how long your book will take to be published and how to publish your book. You may not be sure when to hire a ghostwriter or at what point in the writing process to have ghostwriter step-in to assist you in the publishing process (if you’re writing a book) or the marketing realm (book writing, social media or creating blog posts).
You Should Hire a Ghostwriter When…
You may have started writing your book, and you’re stuck at a point in your book, which you can’t seem to get past. You may have lots of ideas for your new book or blog posts - too many ideas - and you’re not sure where to start or how to organize your work or content. Maybe you have an idea and a title of a book you want to write, but you’re not sure how to put your ideas into words. There are a variety of reasons you may want to hire a ghostwriter:
I often have clients ask me when they should hire a ghostwriter. The fact is, no matter where you are in the process, you can hire a ghostwriter. Ghostwriters offer different services, depending on their level of expertise and their skill set. Find out what skills a ghostwriter offers and start interviewing ghostwriters. My suggestion is a 30-minute video chat to find out how you ‘click’ with the person on the other side of the camera. Spending 30 minutes on a video chat is an investment well worth your time, as you will be working extensively with your ghostwriter. Hire someone you get along with well, you don’t want to hire a ghostwriter only to cause you more friction because your personalities clash.
