Known issues when using ghostwriters

Ghostwriting intern: How to avoid difficulties?

While many customers find it difficult to identify those agencies or ghostwriters eligible for a specific assignment, there are at least signs that point to the “black sheep” in the industry.

If some ghostwriters or agencies promote a “perfect” order fulfillment and a “guaranteed hassle-free completion” or a satisfaction guarantee, this indicates either a lack of experience or even a deliberate misleading of the customer. Because anyone who knows the business and takes it seriously knows that the task of writing a text for strangers is extremely complex. Those who deny this complexity by baseless promises help to give customers a wrong perspective. This is especially true for customers who think they can get their bachelor thesis written without contributing some information themselves.

The fact is: as with any activity, ghostwriting can be difficult.

However, most of these difficulties are based on poor or lacking communication, so they can be avoided when customers, agencies and ghostwriters follow some rules. These include:

Open Cards: Even though ghostwriting is a very discrete activity, it should not lead to important facts being withheld: the client should provide as much information as possible to help the clerks do their job. He should respond to inquiries and examine the delivered text parts carefully. This ensures that he also receives exactly what he has commissioned. In turn, the commissioned ghostwriter clearly states what his strengths are and in what areas he needs additional information to create the text to the satisfaction of the customer.

Sufficient time:

A text that should be informative, inspiring or even entertaining, arises in the rarest cases suddenly. In most cases, the full quality can only develop if the mind identifies itself first with the type of text, with the spelling of its client, with its personal goals and requirements. Especially with thematically very special texts, it is necessary to acquire the appropriate specialist vocabulary and not be stylistically out of the ordinary, for example by violating common conventions. On the other hand, a creative text can also purposely free itself from the rules and expectations of the reader. Whatever the text may look like in the client’s imagination – time pressure can have a negative impact and reduce quality.
