Wanted - freelance writer
Share on:

I am looking for a ghostwriter to write some chapters of different guide books for me all on non-fiction topics i.e. self-improvement, home improvement, etc.

I will provide a detailed outline you will have to stick to for each project. You will be required to write 100% original content.

I am looking for a quality ghostwriter who will accept $100-125 CAD for a 20,000 word project.

Your earnings for this opportunity will add up if you stick with this. I am searching for an ongoing & regular business relationship with a top-notch ghostwriter.

Of course, once completed I will own all rights to these works for hire.

To do this I am asking anyone interested to send me 700 words using the two point outline below. If I like your writing the most I will hire you.

You can divide each of the steps into their own section or paragraph. Please send it in an appropriately formatted Word document. Thank you for your interest.

Here is the outline for the audition sample:

Title: Two steps to having more effective meetings


Step 1: Create a well-defined and clear agenda

YOU MUST TALK ABOUT:
1) Making a clear vision for a meeting by writing a list of things to do and editing it to include only the most important things on that list
2) The importance of circulating your agenda to everyone in the meeting so they are all on board


Step 2: Use the last 10 minutes of your meeting to recap

YOU MUST TALK ABOUT:
1) The importance of making sure that everyone understands what there role is to move forward
2) Why you should set clear deadlines and expectations for these roles to be effective.

That's less than a penny per word. Good luck. Even content mills pay more than that. Maybe you meant 2000?

How? Do you have any idea how long it takes to write and edit 20,000 quality words?

To do this I am asking anyone interested to send me 700 words
So you're almost asking people to work for free, and now you're actually asking people to work for free? Wow.

audition sample
LOL.

To give you some perspective, it would take a very experienced writer around 40 hours to write and edit 20,000 quality (content that people will actually read)words. And you want to pay them $89 and make them jump through hoops?

At the price you're offering, you will be lucky to get spun content with only 3-5 CopyScape hits.

On the whole, you get what you pay for.

Thank God you said something, because I truly can't believe that this offer is for real. I say at the very least he should pay at least 400.00 Canadian dollars and plus also pay people for their 700 word sample. What am I going to do if he decides to use it on a website that he owns for free?

Best Regards,
Shana Jahsinta Walters.

Write until my fingers fall off. LOL!!!

I can see you're new as you haven't written any posts until this one.
So this info will guide you where you should go.

I agree with the other comments. If I was offered that money, I would be insulted. Then you add the request for a detailed sample to write from scratch (for free for your "audition" process. I can see you getting maybe 1 or 2 samples and then you use them as the basis for your material.

Check out Fiverr. That's more the marketplace you should be advertising in if you want 20000 words for that money.

Cheers, Laurence. Writer/Editor/Proofreader.
