I Just Ghost Wrote Something For Someone. Feels Good.

by HowieM

I was paid $60 to Ghost Write someones publication.

And I'll receive 20% of the sales that the publication brings.

It took me a few hours to do it, but I really liked doing it. I might try to do it again.

But me finding this person who needed to have something written was so random I don't think I could find another person again. Haha.


Anyway, just sharing my story.

    Congrats Howie

    Sounds like you're a pretty good writer. As someone who writes for clients all the time, I can tell you that if you want to find more like that person, you need to actively market yourself as a writer for hire.

    You need to make a commitment to writing for others. If not, then it was a good experience for you anyway.

    Paid cash upfront PLUS 20% of the sales?! That's awesome!

    Hopefully you can strike up more deals like this.

    Well done; let's hope he knows how to sell it. $60 up-front and 20% of the takings might work out pretty well.

    Try to get a testimonial/reference from him (in fact one now, and another one later, when he's started selling it and has some customer feedback), just in case you decide to try.

    Freelancing is the probably the easiest and fastest way to start making money online. A lot of people on here, can learn from you.
