A Good Ghostwriter - How to decide

By Matthew Glanfield

A ghostwriter is a writer who creates an article or other publication for
another company or person, essentially not getting credit for the creation.
The person or company gets the credit and the ghostwriter is paid, making
a win-win situation for both the writer and the company.

There are several reasons you may need a ghostwriter. The first being you
just may not have the time to write the article(s) yourself. Second, you may
feel you do not have the skills needed to write an article.

When searching for a good ghostwriter there is a few things to keep in
mind. First, find a writer that would write the article in the way you would. A
good ghostwriter should allow your personality to shine through within the
article. You should also seek a writer who is knowledgeable on the topic at
hand and possesses the ability to organize and write it specifically for your
target audience.

Always ask to see samples of their writing, ensuring their experience in
ghostwriting. You will want to look at various samples and get an idea of
their personality and that it clicks with your own. Make certain you clearly
specify what you expect and find out what the writer expects as well. Never
go into a contract or agreement without first understanding what expected
of each party.

Your chosen ghostwriter should meet all your deadlines exactly. Preferably,
they should beat the deadline and make allowances for changes and
corrections. Additionally, he or she should be flexible and available to you
for the entire period of your project.

You should define to the ghostwriter the content the article(s), should
contain. As well as, the format in which you require the article. The
ghostwriter should deliver the article(s) to you in whatever manner you
choose. If this is not possible, perhaps you should acquire another writer.

Finally, go with your instincts, communicate well with the ghostwriter, and
then decide if they are the proper writer for your project. A good ghostwriter
will maintain excellent communication, provide the utmost professionalism,
and create a well-written article in a timely manner.

While I do write most of my own articles, there are times that I just need to
find somebody else, usually due to time constraints. For this I recommend
hiring a freelancer using sites like or On sites such as these you can post a project that you
want to be done and then have multiple writers bid. Follow the guidelines in
the article for choosing a ghostwriter and you will find that you can easily
create a lot of quality content for very little money.
