A gathering place for stories and samples alike.
Between my personal projects and the work I do for my clients, I spend hours writing each and every day. I love creating content that people enjoy reading, and this blog is no exception.
I sometimes take on simple projects with as little guidance as a single keyword, but most businesses simply can’t justify a project “brief” so truly brief. The key to a successful project is a solid brief to guide your writer’s work, but many businesses aren’t equipped with the information they need to create a good one. This guide will get you going.
When I began offering writing services back in 2014, it was my first step into the world of freelancing. Over the years, I have learned a lot about marketing my services, communicating with clients, and–most of all-what it takes to make a project successful. Whether or not you have worked with a content writer in the past, you can easily get the results you want so long as you do your due diligence.
How much a ghostwriter earns will vary depending upon their experience and whether or not they specialize in certain topics. Ghostwriters who have a professional background in a relevant industry like real estate or accounting can earn a lot more by becoming a “specialist” writer in a corresponding niche.
One thing I love about writing is that anyone can do it, but it does take practice in order to do it well. Being a “good” ghostwriter means being creative, efficient, reliable, adaptable, and–above all–well-written. It’s all about what you say and how you say it, but you don’t need a degree or any special certifications to put your skills to work.
With the growing emphasis on content marketing and the ever-increasing need for all kinds of written content in today’s digital world, just about every business has tossed around the idea of hiring a freelance writer. If you don’t know where to look, check out these platforms.
With a shift to the digital world, content writers are in higher demand than ever before, but what differentiates them from other types of writers? That’s the key question every business should be asking. If you’re in the business for new content, it’s important that you know what kind of writer best fits your project.
By definition, a ghostwriter is a writer that produces content without credit. Traditional ghostwriting jobs include producing books on behalf of celebrities and writing speeches on behalf of public figures. However, the digital age has brought about many new ghostwriting opportunities.
A copywriter must possess both strong writing abilities and excellent selling skills in order to produce promotional content and advertisements that entice leads. After all, the job of a copywriter is to write copy that sells products and services, but what else should be taken into consideration?
Businesses need content, but between questionable content mills, expensive content production agencies, and individuals trying to sell their services, it can be hard to find the right solution. So, what exactly is a freelance writer and when are they the right choice?
A specialty writer is someone who specializes in a certain topic or industry. You’ll often hear them called “niche writers” as well, but their work remains the same. With their in-depth knowledge about a particular subject, they can often deliver highly technical, highly detailed, and highly authoritative content, but when is a specialty writer necessary?
While I’m always trying to improve my writing on my own time, it’s very educational to work with large-scale companies. I’m able to quickly pickup on emerging trends and best practices in the realm of SEO and reader engagement just by reading their well-thought-out project briefs.
