In the second part of our #ContentChat series on ghostwriting, we talked with Brett Pucino (@BPucino) on the ins and outs of being a freelance ghostwriter. If you missed the first chat, check out the recap of the in-house ghostwriter edition.
Q1: For those not familiar with it, what is freelance ghostwriting? What kind of things are you writing, and for whom?
Freelance ghostwriting is when you write content that appears under a client’s name, typically for executives or public figures.
A1: Freelance ghostwriting is anytime you write for a client that puts their own name on the piece (or that of someone in the company). What you write depends on the client and how involved the named person is in content creation varies #ContentChat

A1: Freelance Ghostwriting is writing content for someone else, but working for yourself. I write anything from blog posts to memoirs. Clients vary. Web content clients are biz execs or entrepreneurs. Book clients are usually politicians, biz or spiritual leaders #ContentChat

A1: There are many different intangibles, but essentially, someone doesn’t have time to write something really good (or detailed), so hires someone else to capture his or her voice and put it in print or online. #ContentChat pic.twitter.com/Zrl46PwH0o

A1. I personally freelance ghostwrite blogs and articles for several customers including an orthodontist, a business coach, someone in the wellness space, & a neurosurgeon (scary huh?) 🙂 #ContentChat

Freelance ghostwriting happens for pretty much every type of content you can think of.

A1: Freelance ghostwriting is white-labeled content creation for blogs, websites, articles, white papers, and other content venues where your writing is attributed and credited to a different author. #ContentChat
