This is the age of digital content production, and anyone with an idea can now create digital content about that subject. There are even people who will write your content for you, for a fee, of course. But in many cases, this fee is often incredibly modest, and they don’t even take any royalties from the sales.
These writers are referred to as ‘ghostwriters,’ and they can be a potential goldmine when used properly. When would you consider hiring a ghostwriter? Well, let’s take a look at a few reasons you might hire one.
If You Simply Don’t Have Time
Let’s face it, most of us don’t have the time to hash out even one of our million-dollar ideas beyond a hefty outline and somher details. This is one situation where hiring a ghostwriter can help you be a prolific publisher, particularly considering the ghostwriter’s cost.
Time is always a limiting factor, and if you are busy creating content ideas while also potentially working your normal job, you don’t have time to take on a big project like a several hundred-page story. This also means you can let someone else shoulder the burden of progress. Many writers find it difficult to keep up production themselves, but by using a ghostwriter, you can farm out several works at once.
If You Aren’t Interested In Research
Good writing takes significant research, and if you just aren’t feeling up to that amount or type of work, then hiring a ghostwriter can be the perfect option for you. Regardless of the subject that your content will be about, your ghostwriter will intensely research the subject matter needed to create cohesive and compelling content.
Even if you have the time to write, do you know everything about the subject that you need to? If the research for a prime work sounds tedious, boring, or just not like something you want to deal with, look into a ghostwriter.
There Is A Massive Market To Cash In On
This is the digital golden age, and there is platform after platform of available ghostwriters. By hiring a ghostwriter to help you write your ebook, you take part in one of the largest business booms in history. Sites like Amazon have created a self-publishing environment where you can publish an ebook on any subject you like and take 70% of the cost in many cases.
If You Aren’t A Confident Or Skilled In Writing
Many people have great ideas for stories but lack the ability to flesh them out into a coherent written work. Lots of people simply aren’t able to articulate their ideas enough to get them into a work that is ready to publish. A ghostwriter can help by providing professional, hired writing that you proofread and approve while letting you still have creative control over the work.
Hiring a Ghostwriter for Your Non-Fiction Book
The average cost of non-fiction is far less than you might think, with longer books being able to be hired out to a freelance ghostwriter for only a few thousand dollars. This can mean a much larger profit margin on published works than hiring a writing partner or co-writer.
This cost often remains relatively affordable in the context of the length of the writing. Shorter books can be hired out to beginning ghostwriters for as little as $8,000, while longer works of a few hundred pages can still be contracted for $12,000-$15,000. This makes the potential investment much more attractive since the potential return can outpace the cost quite quickly.
