Discover the ghostwriter’s goldmine, the big hidden market for your words.
Discover the hidden market for your writing
How much are you earning from your writing? Here’s the average freelance writer’s salary in the US, by state.
What if you could have an excellent income, with much less hassle?
You can, starting today, when you write for others, as a ghostwriter.
At one time, ghostwriters focused on books because the demand was large and ongoing—it still is, of course. Celebrities want to “write a book”; many other people do too. Since these people don’t have the experience or the time to write a book, they hire a ghostwriter.
However, today, our media culture is hungry for words, so now ghostwriters write an immense range of material, going way beyond books… They write everything from tweets and Instagram captions to articles in mass-market magazines and blog posts. They script podcasts and YouTube videos.
Furthermore, they do this in secret: someone else puts their name to the ghostwriter’s words.
For hardworking writers with a family and a mortgage, this isn’t a concern—they’re grateful that someone wants their words.
Could you become a ghostwriter?
You can if you can write to order.
More on that shortly; allow me to share how I became a ghostwriter. I stumbled into it, as I did into copywriting.
My story: how I stumbled into ghostwriting
At the time, I wrote business books commissioned by the publisher Prentice Hall. A couple of editors asked me to write chapters in upcoming books. My contributions weren’t acknowledged. The payment was great, so it was more than fine by me.
Eventually, I went from chapters to ghostwriting entire books, both nonfiction and fiction.
Over the years, I’ve tried to give up ghostwriting, but once you become known as a ghostwriter, people pass your name around to others. They’re happy to pay whatever fees you choose to charge.
How much are ghostwriters paid?
Experienced ghostwriters are busy, they have more clients than they can handle. Depending on the writer, they may be booked anywhere from six months to a year ahead. The more experience you have, the more value you represent to the client.
On the other hand, everyone starts somewhere, so you can make a great living, even as a new ghostwriter.
Most ghostwriters charge by the project. They base their fees on the time the project will take, as well as how much they could earn from other sources during that time.
Writing a book of 80,000 words (320 print pages, estimating 250 words per page), is likely to take you three to six months. How much could you earn from other sources during that time?
A new ghostwriter might charge $24,000 for 80,000 words, based on earnings of $50,000 per year.
On the other hand, an experienced ghostwriter might charge $75,000 for a three-month project, based on earnings of $300,000 per year.
Could you become a ghostwriter?
One question: can you write to order?
If you can, and you’re amenable to having others place their name on your words, you may have a wonderful career as a ghostwriter open to you.
