Over the years and as business demand has increased, we’ve had to make a few adjustments to the way we schedule projects and perform work. However, one aspect still remains the same and that is that each project is scheduled a day (or more depending on size) and completed in its entirety. We don’t jump from project to project on a daily basis doing one article here for one client and another article there for another. Each project is worked on until all 10 articles or 25 pages are complete. This is to ensure quality and consistency across the project. It really does make a big difference in the outcome.
Here’s how our scheduling process works though if you are interested in making an order and need to determine when that project would be completed. It’s really rather simple:
1. Make contact by email. Let us know how many pages, how many words and the type of project you have. This will allow us to give you an accurate quote. If you know what you want specifically, you can also prepay via the Quick Order page.
2. After we’ve quoted you and you’ve given a definitive “go” on the project, we will send an invoice for half up front via our Freshbooks account. This system allows you to pay by PayPal or Google Checkout. You can also fill out our Credit Card Authorization form and we will charge your card directly. For very large projects, we’re also willing to accept bank transfers.
3. Once the invoice is paid or if you’ve prepaid, we will schedule you in. We book up a week in advance, so if your order is in before Thursday of each week, your project will be scheduled for the upcoming week. We have a 7 day turnaround time, although it is first come, first serve as well. We will try to schedule you in earlier if our schedule allows. If it comes in after Thursday, then you will likely be scheduled for the next, next week, which will put delivery within 10-14 days.
4. If you would like to receive a first chapter and outline for approval on an ebook or a first article for approval prior to the set being completed, just ask. We’re happy to accommodate.
If you need your content in a hurry, we do offer priority rates and we can often accomodate a quick turnaround. Just let us know what you need and how quickly you need it. We can ofte work something out.
As you can see, the scheduling process is not difficult. We really just need all of the details you can provide us, as well as a definitive “go” after you receive a quote. This way we can get you scheduled in without any delays.
A ghostwriter is a writer who creates content for a legal copyright holder. Though the concept of a ghostwriter started with celebrity books, the prevalence and importance of online writing has opened a new market for ghostwriting. Ghostwriters are paid per assignments or by the hour, and so do not charge royalties or a percentage of your sales. A ghostwriter is traditionally not credited as an author. Instead, the copyright holder takes the byline. The website owner is free to do whatever he or she wants with the new content.
When looking for a ghostwriter try to find someone who is experienced in writing features like the one you need. For example, if you wanted a series of blogs written, you would seek a ghostwriter with blogging experience. If you wanted a 200-page book written, you would need a ghostwriter with experience in ebook writing. An ebook is a far more complicated task than writing a few articles. A ghostwriter must be skilled in writing coherent sentences for hours at a time, as well as chapters that lead into one another with smooth transition.
Ghostwriters must be able to adapt to a client’s needs, whether that is through ebook writing or SEO copy. The client decides the manner in which each page is written. Some clients may want a conversational ebook, while others want academic-style writing for a series of articles. One of the best advantages of using an SEO firm instead of a freelance ghostwriter is that an SEO firm offers far more variety in writing voice and style. There is also greater dependability as the needs of a client are spread out throughout the company rather than one person.
When choosing a ghostwriter firm, resist the temptation to outsource your project overseas. Unlike a call center, proper English writing is hard to fake. As soon as your web audience senses inferior writing (made evident by bad grammar or bad spelling) you lose their attention. When you work with an established SEO firm you only communicate with one person throughout the project. Furthermore, you get access to other niceties like website optimization, SEO research and article submission.
