Ghost Writing A Growing Market
One of my writing mentors has started a Ghostwriting business offering her services. She stated that Ghostwriting is a great market to get into and is quite a productive business. I have always kind of shied away from Ghostwriting and the concept of it. It did not make sense to me, but in my journey of starting up my freelance writing career again I did see that Ghostwriting is really a booming market. Nearly everyone is wanting someone to Ghost write for them. The rules of Ghostwriting are simple. You will get hired to write articles and they the buyer will hold all copyrights to that article. This mean you no longer are owner of the article you just wrote and you promise not to resubmit your article anywhere else. Those are Ghostwriting terms for articles.
Where is the Glory?
Ghostwriting has now appealed to me since you really can not escape this growing market. One of the goals of a writer is to be good enough that someone will pay you for your work. So I grew okay with this idea, and the fact my name will not go on the piece. I got payment for my hard work so I will take that over my name on the piece. I at least got part of the writer's goal dream down by getting paid for my writing, plus making a semi job out of it. Then you may start thinking well where’s your glory? Don’t you want an article published with your name on it where everyone can see that was written by you? I did start wondering that. I was like okay I wrote this awesome article that is going to put on the web, or where ever, and no one is going to know I wrote it. How is this helping my career? I got over this quickly though. That is what Ghostwriting is, simple as that. Really all I want to do is write for a career it would be great to get paid to do something I love, and this is a start.
Ghostwriting Best Way To Make Money Online?
If you want to make money online, and who does not, well Ghostwriting may be the market for you. The pay may be small, but the pay will come quicker too than say if you are trying to write and use Google Adsense and other get paid to write markets. It all depends how fast and how much you write and how many clients you write for. I currently am writing two clients, and each pay me different amount so my income varies too. You get your payment via Paypal or some other form of online payment transaction. They will usually tell you which payment format they use. I write for the love of writing so the $54.00 dollars I had made in two weeks was a lot to me. One client loved my work so much that are keeping on for my writing services. If any other jobs finishes I know I always have this one client that has decided to keep me on as one of their writers they can count on. This is part of the writers dream to get paid for your work even though we still just write for the fact that we love this craft with a passion. As you see I still even write in between assignments, I never really stop. So if you think you got the skills then Ghost writing may be for you, and you will make money quickly. Not a lot mind you, but you will get it a lot faster than it takes for Google to deliver and some other places to deliver. No offense to Google of course.
