Ghostwriter School is Now Open: Learn How to Write for a Living

Jumpstart Your Career in Ghostwriting

Even if you’ve never been paid to write before and have no special degrees.

You can get paid to ghostwrite.

Does this sound familiar...

You've always been interested in writing but have been told that no one really makes money writing. Or maybe writing has eluded you because you’ve never been paid to write or don’t know where to start. Learn the skills to become a ghostwriter with Ghostwriter School.

Every day, people just like you are getting paid
to ghostwrite.


It's not that they have something that you don't...

  • They aren’t smarter than you…

  • Or working harder than you…

  • They don’t have more time than you…

  • And many of them don’t have a degree in writing or experience writing…

They’re regular people who decided they were going to do something they’ve always wanted to do…  

Write for a living.

We’ve heard from a lot of aspiring writers… Some of them told us they were an exception -- that they wouldn’t be able to ghostwrite because they’ve never been paid to write before.


But they weren’t the exception… 

And neither are you.

Success is possible for you, too.

You just need the right system, formula, and actions to make it happen.

Nick is good at getting you to think about other ways to become good at what you want to do. He gives you the seed and then tells you how to grow it. A lot of the speaker, training and media is not what I am looking to do. Although, what Nick has talked about certainly gives me an insight into what is available and has got me thinking about articles.

Can you imagine a life where you actually get to do what you’ve always wanted to do... For a living?

Here’s what I gained from my ghostwriting side hustle that grew enough to allow me to quit my full-time lawyer job:

  • More time with my family

  • The ability to make a real difference in people’s lives

  • I get paid to read other people’s books

  • I get paid to write … for a living!

How could your life look different if you take action on your writing dream, too?

My name is Nick!

I was a lawyer for 13 years and then I realized…

I wanted to make a real difference in the world. I wanted more time with my family. I didn’t want to be tied to an office for late nights and long weekends.

That’s why I started Ghostwriting.

I traded in my six-figure salary for ghostwriting. When I got started I had very little writing experience or connections to the ghostwriting world.

I had no training. I had no blueprint. I had to figure it all out on my own.

And within 8 months of getting my first client, I was making enough money to quit my lawyer job for good.

Guarantee

  • You get 30 days to go through the course and start putting into practice what you’re learning. If within that timeframe you don’t think ghostwriting is for you, send me an email and I’ll cancel your enrollment and refund your money. It’s that easy.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much time is required?

    You can get started with as little or as much time as you want. When Nick got started, he was working about 15 hours a week. It’s more important to be consistent with whatever time you have than to have a lot of time. If you set aside 10-15 hours a week, that’s plenty of time to build momentum. Slow and steady always wins the race.

  • When can I expect to start making money from ghostwriting?

    That depends on a number of factors, such as how much time you have to dedicate to ghostwriting and how much action you take on a consistent basis to implement the teachings. Some Ghostwriter School students find clients right away. Others take longer, choosing to go through all the course materials before they even start looking for clients. In Ghostwriter School, we teach you how to identify the opportunities right under your nose to start making money as a ghostwriter. We find that many people are just a few degrees of separation from their first clients. Setting aside time to build your business and working on it consistently during that time will help you build momentum, though.

  • How is this different than freelance writing?

    Freelance writing is very different from ghostwriting. With freelance writing, the writers generally look to get paid by multiple organizations to write content for them under their own name, generally focusing on articles. Pay tends to be lower for freelance writing. Many clients use content mills to source articles, making writers compete on price often. With ghostwriting, the writer creates content for clients to use as their own. The writer’s name doesn’t appear on the content. Content types range from social media to articles and books. Pay for ghostwriting is generally much higher than with freelance writing. The content is often much more rewarding, as the ghostwriter can be more selective with the types of projects they work on. And, by building an independent ghostwriting business you don’t concern yourself with content mills. You focus your time working with clients and earning their referrals. In fact, since starting his ghostwriting business, Nick has spent a TOTAL of NO time sourcing clients on content mills and $21.55 on advertising.

  • Do I have to be an extrovert to get clients?

    Absolutely not. Most of our Ghostwriter School students are introverts (Nick’s a secret introvert, too.). And after the first few clients you impress, your clients will likely be your best source of new referrals, as their fiends, family members, and colleagues ask them “how did you do it?” In Ghostwriter School, we teach you many ways to find clients in your comfort zone. From simple conversations with people you know to using your writing skills to open doors, introverts have many ways to find clients.

  • How much can I earn?

    Again, it depends. When just starting out, we recommend charging at least $5,000 per book, although many people suggest starting out much higher. We’ve had multiple students land five-figure projects within six months of getting started and many more earn well into four figures per project. The type of writing you want to do also matters. Writing non-fiction books is the easiest way to earn a lot of money, with fees for talented but entry-level ghostwriters exceeding $10,000 and hitting $50,000 or more per book for more experienced ghostwriters. Your ultimate income will be determined by your mix of services (articles, social media, books, etc.), your focus (fiction vs. nonfiction), how much time you dedicate to ghostwriting (Do you write 4 books per year? 10?), and other factors. The best way to make good money as a ghostwriter is to take yourself and your profession seriously and serve your clients well. That will open up doors for more and better projects.

  • What if I’m not successful?

    We strongly believe that the best way to achieve a bright future is to create it. That’s why we put everything we know about building a professional ghostwriting business in Ghostwriter School. We also show you how to measure progress so you know you’re on the right track because taking slow, smart, steady steps forward is the best way to succeed—by far. That said, when you join Ghostwriter School, you get 30 days to see if ghostwriting is for you. If within that timeframe you don’t think ghostwriting is the right fit, send me an email and I’ll promptly cancel your enrollment and refund your money. It’s that easy.

  • What kind of support can I get if I get stuck?

    When you join Ghostwriter School, you don’t just sign up for learning, you also get to benefit from a growing community of ghostwriters in our free Facebook group. Post any questions you have in there for people all around the world to see and help. The Ghostwriter School team is in there answering questions all the time, too. We also offer an upgraded enrollment where you can submit questions for a weekly live Q&A and a small-group community for only Ghostwriter School students called Ghostwriter School Elite.

  • What special equipment do I need to be a ghostwriter?

    None. If you have a laptop with a good internet connection, you have everything you need. You don’t need special writing software. All the hardware and software you need besides a laptop and stable internet connection is free.
