Use Ghost Writers for Your Internet Marketing

Aug 17, 2007
Well, don't get spooked by the heading of this article. Ghost writers are not something Bela Lugosi would have fought against, this is a breed of professional writers who write for someone else, and relinquish all their rights to their written work to the person to whom they sell it.

If you have a website that is selling something, then Internet marketing is a very essential thing you must do for its promotion. In this method of promotion, you write articles relating to your product on some open source service where visitors can read freely. Such open directories, as they are called, provide features wherein you can put your own small bio and even a picture below the article. But the most important thing that you can include in the article is a link to your website, which is known as the back link.

Undoubtedly, Internet marketing has become the way today by which a whopping majority of people are promoting their websites. Open directories like ezinearticles.com are flooded with articles every day from website owners, and the visitors coming to read its pages each day run into multiples of that number. But certainly, it is necessary to make the article very catchy in order to pique the visitor's interest. Or else, why would they visit your website.

For this, your article written for promotion must stand apart as something special. If you are planning to write the article yourself, you must have the required talent to make it that attractive. Or, you would need to invest in ghost writers.

Ghost writers, also known as freelance writers or simply content writers, are available all over the world, and you can easily access them through freelance work sites such as Guru, Scriptlance, Freelance Work Exchange, eLance, etc. There are freelance work portals where you can post your projects and invite ghost writers to bid on them. Once you get several bids, you can pick and choose whom you want. Just remember not to go by price alone. You must also consider samples of the bidders' work and their experience. On these sites, you will also be able to read how other employers have rated the bidders.

One of the most important parameters to decide who an ideal ghost writer would be for you would be to see some samples of the work they have already done. Now this can be done in several ways. You can make people who bid for you write an article on a sample topic you give.

This is by far the best method of judging since you will get an article written on the subject of your choice. Or you can have the ghost writer submit a sample of earlier work, if any. One more approach is to ask them to provide direct links to articles they have written.

Getting a ghost writer is a very normal trend nowadays in Internet marketing, and it is not at all illegal. This is because ghost writers are willingly selling their articles to their employers.

So, ghost writers could be indispensable in your Internet marketing agenda. Be sure to keep some portion of your budget for a couple of them to get professional work done in a faster turnaround time.
