If you don't have strong writing skills, or just don't have the time to write, but you have a message to convey in writing, hiring a ghost writer or ghost writers may be your best alternative. While prices vary among ghost writers, selecting one because the rate is lowest is not generally a good idea.
The price ghost writers demand for their writing services are generally an indicator of their expertise. You should also look for ghost writers who have written in the same genre, or even your industry. Hiring someone experienced in ghost writing for manufacturing firms may not be the best choice if your firm sells greeting cards.
This is not always the case; however, as a skilled ghost writer should be able to research and write about any topic. What you must hear from ghost writers in order to consider them is that they are willing to take the time to learn and research, and that they have written on varied topics in the past.
Communication between ghost writers and their clients is a crucial part of the writing process. You must not only hire a ghost writer that will listen to your needs and take your style and attitude suggestions to heart, but you also must be willing to take the time to convey these to the ghost writers.
Don't expect your ghost writer to read your mind. Think of the ghost writer as your company's mouthpiece. You wouldn't let your sales staff call on a customer without a firm grasp of the company and its products, nor should you let your ghost writer tackle your marketing or any other written business pieces without knowing what your firm is all about.
You will get a first draft copy from your ghost writer, and you'll need to edit this. If you've conveyed to the ghost writer the message you want delivered to your readers then editing shouldn't be extensive. If it is you've either hired the wrong ghost writer or you haven't taken the time to give that ghost writing a clear understanding of your firm and its message.
Keep in mind, too, that anyone can say they are ghost writers. Before you hire a ghost writer you should check with others that have used the ghost writer's services and peruse sample articles or books written by the ghost writer.
