MLM Hiring a Ghostwriter for ebooks.
Have you ever considered writing an ebook for your home business?
What steps would that require for a network marketing digital ebook?
What about your mlm- would that help you market more effectively?
The power of the written ebook does three things:
1. It establishes you as an EXPERT.
2. It builds your Credibility.
3. It can be virally sent out all over the web.
Those are three things that would help your home business tremendously and would impact your bottom line. And it would help get you talked about a LOT!
Ok…you do not know anything about writing and do not want to write an ebook.
COOL! Then you can hire someone to ghostwrite your ebook that will rock people’s minds and world!
You can find them on:
HOW do you hire one and what do you do to make sure you find the RIGHT writer for your ebook?
Here are some tips to help you accomplish that (Someone emailed me these and love them:)
Tips on working with a freelance ghostwriter – If you decide to work with a freelance ghostwriter, here are a few guidelines to make sure you follow:
1. Be clear and detailed in your job posting.
You’ll have a better chance of getting a ghostwriter that is capable of meeting your job requirements if you are crystal clear in what you need. Be very clear in what your time
requirements are. There is no use hiring someone only to find out they can’t get your ebook done in 3 weeks, if that is when you need it done.
2. Ask for samples.
Make sure that their writing style compliments your tone. If you want a conversational tone, but all of their samples are very formal, they’re probably not a good fit.
3. Don’t be afraid to narrow down and ask for an interview.
Remember, you’ll be working closely with this person and they will be your voice. Narrow it down to 3 people and ask for a brief conversation on the phone or via Skype. See which one best suits your tone.
4. Set clear milestones.
Let your ghostwriter know what you expect in the way of milestones. Be flexible enough to allow for changes, but set clear milestones in the beginning that you are both shooting for.
5. It’s as important that you meet your milestones as you expect them to meet theirs.
It’s a two-way street here. Make sure you get edits back in a timely fashion so your ghostwriter can do their job.
6. Start with an outline.
Send your ghostwriter an overall outline to start. Include your overall concept and ideas for the major chapters that you want, and other ideas that you want to cover in the chapters.
7. Ongoing communication.
Decide together how you will work together for ongoing communication. Will it be email, phone, text or Skype? Set clear guidelines on how soon you will return any communication.
8. Decide on the fill-in with your ghostwriter.
This next part really depends on your topic, your knowledge, and the job posting requirements. Have you stated that the ghostwriter will have to do research themselves? Or will you be giving them the information? Here are some of your choices:
- Have your ghostwriter do the research and writing
- Send your ghostwriter the info you have gathered and have them polish it
- Dictate the information to your ghostwriter and have them put it in to a polished format
I have found dictation to be an increasingly effective way for authors to work with their ghostwriters. Most business owners have the knowledge in their head and don’t mind speaking it; they just don’t know how to make sense of it on paper. That is what a good ghostwriter will do well. Let them to do what they’re good at!
Hiring a ghostwriter can be a great way for a business owner to get their ebook written without taking too much time away from their normal day to day business needs with your mlm network marketing home business.
