How To Make Money As A Ghostwriter

Updated on February 28, 2014

The Thrill of a Byline

Listen, I get it! I’m a writer, a professional freelance writer as well as an author, and I understand the thrill of seeing your own byline on a published article. I have sold articles to magazines and I was one proud Papa when I saw my name in print, so I understand the allure….but….

There is money to be made in the ghostwriting business, and if it is money you are after you would be foolish not to at least consider ghostwriting.

What is ghostwriting?

“A ghostwriter is a writer who writes books, articles, stories, reports, or other texts that are officially credited to another person.” Thanks to my friends at Wikipedia for that definition.

In other words, you do the writing, someone else gets the glory, and you walk home with money in your pocket.

The Opportunities Are Endless

The common belief among many novice writers is that ghostwriting only applies to writing a book for another person, but that belief is dead wrong. Most businesses today hire ghostwriters to do their blogs for them. Many magazines hire ghostwriters, as do government institutions, nonprofit institutions, etc. It is a big world out there, both online and in traditional publishing, and there is a limited number of writers who have the ability to craft meaningful copy. In other words, if you can write well then you will never be short of opportunities to make money.

What kind of money are we looking at? That depends entirely on your skill and your work ethic. Yes, there are content mills out there that pay very little. I began my writing career working for such content mills making ten bucks per article. It is horrible pay but for many writers just starting out it is the only way to gain experience and build a platform.

Once you get established, however, rates will typically be anywhere from $20 per hour to $75 per hour and up. This writer has reached a point in his career where he refuses to work for ten dollars per hour. I do not say that because I think I am some elite writer who is above such nonsense; I say that because an hour of my life is worth more than ten dollars, and yours is as well, so please do not devalue your work just for the sake of making a buck.

Where Do You Find Jobs?

They are everywhere if you look for them. Companies like Textbroker and Elance are good sites to check out. I prefer to find my own jobs the old-fashioned way: I go out and look for them. I contact businesses and I pitch my abilities as well as pitch what I can do for those businesses in terms of increasing their business. I make it known that the dollars they spend on my writing will equate to profits for them. I get turned down a lot, but I also find that nugget occasionally that is willing to pay for my expertise. The companies I write for have been with me for over two years; I have a working relationship with them. I know what they want and I deliver on time.

Should You Just Write About Things You Know About?

This is a tricky question. For those starting out I would suggest that yes, you look for ghostwriting jobs that you have some expertise in. This will increase your comfort level and the articles will be easier for you to write.

However, experienced ghostwriters are more than willing to leave their comfort level and write about topics they in fact know nothing about. My first ghostwriting job was writing blog entries for a real estate company in Los Angeles. I chose that job because at one time I had a real estate license and I knew the jargon and the business. That job, by the way, has grown considerably. That same company now has branch offices in four other major cities and each branch has their own website that requires my writing abilities.

From that job I eventually branched out into other areas. Today I have customers in the salvage yard business as well as home security. With the plethora of information on the web, it is not hard to do the research and learn what you do not know, so don’t shy away from a job simply because you know nothing about it.

Learn to Write with an Appropriate Voice

This is important so pay attention: ghostwriting means you must capture your client’s voice. You are the client and the client is you. When ghostwriting you take over the persona of your client, so you need to get to know who you are writing for. Ask questions of your client. Find out what is important to them and who will be reading your writing. My normal style of writing….my normal writer’s voice…does not work in the world of business, so I need to adjust accordingly. Let me show you by example; here is a portion of an article I wrote for a real estate firm:

PREPARING TO PURCHASE A HOME, CONDO OR CO-OP IN LAS VEGAS

  • Decide on the amount you can afford to spend on your new home. As a rule of thumb, look at a home that costs two or three times your gross income.
  • Make a list of the features you desire in your new home by priority; also make a list of features you do not want. This will help an agent in the selection process.
  • List neighborhoods in Las Vegas that are desirable to you by priority. Consider schools, facilities, recreational areas and ease of transportation.
  • Find an agent intimately familiar with the Las Vegas market and have that agent begin to find suitable homes according to your list.
  • If at all possible, sell your existing home before making an offer on any new home; this will strengthen your position when making an offer.
  • Ensure that you have enough money to cover down payment plus closing costs. Closing costs will run between 3-6 percent of the home price.
  • Check your credit reports and status before making an offer so there are no problems regarding financing.
  • Organize all documentation such as pay stubs, bank statements, etc so loan application goes smoothly.
  • If possible get pre-approved for a loan; this is different from being pre-qualified and again will strengthen any offer you make.

Anyone who has ever read my work knows that this is not my normal voice, but it is the voice of my customer and that’s all that matters. They are, after all, the ones paying for the article.

Some Final Thoughts

Times are tough. You don’t need me to tell you that. Many writers are just scraping by, and many more are questioning their sanity regarding their career choice. Writing is not easy, but it is definitely possible to make decent money as a ghostwriter. Swallow that pride, toss aside the need to see your name in a byline, and go out and find some ghostwriting jobs. With a little hard work and perseverance, you can probably find enough jobs to pay your bills right in your own community.

That way you’ll be making money while you wait for a publisher to buy the rights to your novel that is sitting on the shelf.

      I have been on both ends being the ghostwriter and having stuff written by others for me to tweak and share on my own blog. I am with you that I refuse to be paid $10 anymore for this and do make sure if I am putting in the time, effort and work that I am now being compensated. You do make some wonderful points here with this and more. Thanks Bill and wishing you a wonderful weekend now!

      You're right about researching topics for writing gigs. I've written about everything from bail bonds to insurance to hair growth products and even did a huge re-write project on how to grow marijuana! Just about everything you write requires some amount of research. The key is to be confident that you can submit quality work regardless of the subject. On top of being paid, you gain an education and become more well-rounded.

      Good information. I've written some for Textbroker but do it now only for the better paying assignments (I'm on some legal blog teams that pay a bit more) that I can crank out pretty quickly. I don't want to be working for much less than $20/hour these days and usually a lot more. So developing a base of business clients like you have is definitely the way to go.

      What a great topic. I actually prefer ghost writing because I like anonymity. I currently do ghost writing for an agent in the real estate industry. I'll have to be honest and admit that the first time I saw someone else's name on something I wrote, it bit my behind a little. But then the money in my bank account made up for it.

      Oh, I think ghostwriting is a pretty cool gig, especially if they pay what you are asking, and one's time is valuable no doubt about it! Thanks for sharing your insight and expertise on this topic. Hey, when one needs money, then forget the glory and pride, and go for the bucks, regardless of who gets the credit! It is, as you say, great experience and builds up one's experience as an actual writer ... until that glorious day one's novel is published!!!

      This is excellent information and I have been freelance writig for a couple of years. It is a way to earn a little extra needed income, but you are right about the satisfaction of writing something with your name on it. I write numerous medical and medical education articles as that is the area of my expertise. However, I have been writing in many other catagories recently as it is not to difficult to do a bit of research. Thanks for writing this helpful hub.

    • MizBejabbers profile image

      MizBejabbers 3 years ago

      Bill, this is the second or third hub I’ve read on ghostwriting and I’m getting a little confused. There seems to be only a fine line or no distinction what people are calling “ghostwriting” today just being another term for advertising copywriting. The voice you used in the real estate copy was the same or similar voice that I used for 10 years in my advertising copywriting, except that yours did contain research and advice rather than hype like in the copywriting. My question: Is what used to be considered copywriting now being called ghostwriting? Just wondering in case ghostwriting calls after I retire. I’m hoping I can use those skills.

      I have ghostwritten a few things, the largest being a 879-page doctoral dissertation from which I made several thousand dollars – and was given credit as the editor. I’m probably one of a few people in the country who has done a dissertation but don’t have the doctorate. LOL

      I liked your style and voice. It was very good copy. Voted up.

      Bill Holland 3 years ago from Olympia, WA

      MizB, it is the same thing to answer your question. As long as you are writing an article or copy and it is attributed to someone else, it is ghostwriting in today's vernacular.

      And thank you for the kind words; coming from a pro like you I am quite happy.

    • annart profile image

      Ann Carr 3 years ago from SW England

      Great advice as always. I think it's important to have a variety of 'lines' of work when you are writing for profit, apart from it giving you a wider variety of experience. I've often thought of ghost-writing, especially when I see bad writing out there (and I often do!). However, I've enough to do at the moment. Maybe I'll give it a go some day.

      It's important to make writers aware of possibilities and you're certainly good at that, at 'Helping writers to spread their wings and fly.'

      Have a relaxing evening, bill. You deserve it! Ann

      I love the comment of Brian just before mine :-) The tutu made me smile... I suppose it's my tendancy to see everything visually in my head ;-) I am quite busy as it is creating, drawing, painting, writing, making videos each week and doing it in two languages to add something else.

      I heard about ghost writers and I think if people can do it, love it and learn from it why not. Who knows it might push them to be the real author later on :-)

      Have a great weekend, Bill!

      Awesome advice as always Bill, I totally lost my nerve as a freelancer when I worked for a while on one of those content farms, the writing was appallingly bad by the other non English speaking writers, we had to write the same piece 3 times! it was a nightmare, and for some reason they told me that I wasn't quite right for them! yet they had people who were spelling words wrong, bad grammar and so on, so to be a ghost writer I would have to really get my confidence up, but congrats on all your achievements, you are a great teacher for all of us, nell

      Bill, this is great advice to your fans. When I find myself with spare time I do a little writing for TextBroker and find it an easy way to pick up some spare change. There are some who find this a way to put themselves through college, or so they claim.

      Ghostwriting...o, can I say, I have done quite a bit of it. It has been a great way to generate some much needed revenue. However, that was then and this is now.

      And for now, no more of that for me..if I am going to write now, I am going to see whatever little stuff I get out there, with my tag on it.

      But it is a great way to make some money...I can attest to that.

      Thank you PS....it is a good way to make some coins, but I much prefer having my name on my work...call it ego and I'm fine with that. :)

      blessings and hugs are heading your way

      Up, Useful, and Interesting.

      I might give ghostwriting a try.

      I did once write a romance breakup letter for an illiterate man, but that was a favor.

      Definitely pinning this one Bill! I have always thought it would be interesting to be a ghostwriter and now I know how to get started. Thanks.

      Glimmer, you are a good writer and I know you could do this. If I can be of any help make sure you get in touch with me and I'll do what I can.

      I've been ghostwriting for my fellow students since my University days for essays, thesis and even love letters. They'd give me a smug face for getting good marks more often even better than my own submissions.

      I still do it for college/university students here but I don't have to compete with myself anymore. I find ghostwriting rewarding. Never mind the credit, I just love doing it and yes, there's money 'though it just won't pay my mortgage but good enough to buy myself some treats.

      Voting up and useful Bill.

      Thanks Cris! If one can swallow their ego then yes, there is money to be made. I left my ego at the door a long time ago. I'd rather eat. :)

      hugs from Oly

      Maybe they would, Deb. We'll never know if you don't ask. :) Thanks as always my friend.
