FAQs about Blogging
Let’s answer some frequently asked questions specific to blogging.
We understand the need to fit a brand or on an image that a business or website which has a certain style for which they’d wish for me to adhere to. As a ghost blogger, all content will be written exclusively for you and therefore you own the content*. With a balance of creativity and professionalism, I can create articles and blog posts that match the tone and attitude of your brand. When you hire me, you get clear blogs that are meticulously researched content with a tone tailored to your unique audience.
If you’d like me to write under my pen name you can hire me as a regular contributor or a guest writer to your blog. All content would be credited to me*.
* Ownership is subject to terms and conditions outlined in the proposal and/or agreement.
Depending on the nature of different blog post types, a few require some collaboration.
Some posts may require your unique wisdom or opinions in a niche topic – it makes your posts more authentic and valuable.
Each week, I’ll ask you some questions about the topic you’d like me to write for that week and you can answer as brief or elaborate as you’d like. You could share with me keywords you’d like me to target as your copywriter, blog ideas and headlines, content outlines and research, or absolutely nothing at all, it’s completely up to you.
Clients are encouraged to send any press releases, latest news updates, upcoming event details or any general information and relevant articles they have as a basis for me to have a further knowledge and understand of their business. These materials can also be used to be rewritten into suitable blog formats and/or add value to future blogs.
Alternatively and/or in addition to this, I will also come up with relevant blog ideas and trending content, and provide my own supporting research for various topics that can be blogged about. As a ghost blogger I will make sure that the blogs offer a good a mix of news, research, promotions and any other integral information to make the SEO blogs engaging for both loyal customers and new website visitors.
In my blogging rates I have included proofreading by an external resource and two rounds of revisions. After the first draft of each post, I can submit it to you and depending on how much involvement you’d like you can also edit or add anything to the final post. We can do this through emailing docs back and forth with each other and/or using collaborative programs such as Google Docs and Team Viewer.
In regards to publishing posts to your blog site directly, I can publish it as a draft for you to view first before it goes live and request any final revisions, or I can publish it directly live to your site.
Every client is different, and our arrangements can be flexible. Some clients like to be hands-on with content and editing, while others like to let me, as a Ghost Blogger, take the reins.
It depends on a number of factors for how long it takes to complete a blog, including:
– Per the blog request, what is involved if I am writing from scratch, rewriting something you already have on your site, further editing, proofreading, SEO and if you’d like me to help publish your blogs to your site and design the layout of how it will appear on your website
– How complex and/or general the topic is
– Your audience – who are they and where are they located? Where are their “hubs” for conversation online and the strategy we come up with together of getting your message across to them
– How much research and reading is needed, for both content and SEO optimisation; and
– The level of input you’ll be able to give e.g keywords, ideas, outlines etc.
I am a dedicated ghost blog writer and I want all the work that I produce to be at its best. Because of this, I try to take on a maximum of 6-8 clients at any given time so that I can truly focus my efforts on each client throughout the week and provide more personalised customer service.
If you choose the option to share your blogs on social networks using our content promotion service, there are many different websites where we can share them. We will typically suggest sites that fit your niche. But it’s up to you and what fits your business. Popular social networks you may have heard of include Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest.
