Want to save money on ghostwriting services? Here is your complete guide to getting the best bang for your buck.
There is no question that ghostwriting is expensive. It is a highly skilled, labor-intensive job. But there is a very wide range of pricing. I have known people to pay upwards of $50,000 to have a book ghostwritten. That is not good.
Choosing a Ghostwriting Service Wisely
Ideally, you want to pay less for ghostwriting, without sacrificing quality. Good news: the most expensive ghostwriting agency is not necessarily the best ghostwriting service. Just because somebody ghostwrote the autobiography of a former head of state or Hollywood celebrity doesn’t mean they are better than many ghostwriters who have not.
TIP: Hire by the project, not by the hour. That way, you minimize the administrative costs. We hate keeping track of hours. It’s tedious. We charge by the project, so you don’t have to pay for all that administrative work.
