How to Become an Internet Ghost Writer
How would you like to earn as much as $40 per hour, working from home and calling your own shots?
How To Get Paid What You Want
Being a freelance copywriter can have its perks. You are your own boss. You can work from your home. You can work in your filthiest clothes and not have your colleagues writing a petition for you to take a bath.
You call the shots! No irritating colleagues, no boss breathing down your throat. Most of all you can dictate what you earn.
But most copywriters sell themselves short.
I’ve seen this happen so many times — gifted copywriters who should be earning twice or even thrice what they are getting. New copywriters usually just ask for the minimum or just let the client dictate how much they are going to get paid. Isn’t that how you’re supposed to start?
Here’s what every starting copywriter should do:
First ask yourself:
“How much would I like to make an hour?”
The idea is to “reverse engineer” your business, so it suits you. This is much better than letting others set your prices for you. Once you know what you’re willing to work for, then you create a specific plan to achieve that figure.
Here’s how it works:
1. Come Up With Your Ideal Hourly Figure
2. Calculate Your Average Article Writing Speed
3. Determine if it’s “doable”
4. If it isn’t, increase your APH and/or EPV

How to Earn Top Dollar Fees Writing Articles
The faster you work, the more money you’ll make. It’s that simple.
The average ghost writer gets paid between $3.50 and $6.50 per article. But you don’t want to be “average” do you?
The reason those fees are so low is because most ghost writers don’t know a damn thing about perceived value, or how to enhance their own. So they’re forced to cut their prices to stay competitive!
I can tell you first hand people looking for ghost writers take a lot more into consideration than the fee you charge.
Why? Well, many people find out if they pay $5 per article to a ghostwriter, often times they have to go back and edit the articles they receive. Time is money of course. To spare themselves of wasted time and headache, they’re willing to pay more if they are confident in their ghostwriter.
You can build that confidence with the right perceived value enhancement techniques!
Also, you need to position yourself to attract a certain quality client. Ideally you want to only work for people who have good, proven marketing systems that allows them to make “$X” per article.
So these clients don’t bat an eye when you quote them prices of $10 or $12 per article… provided that you have the right “perceived value”.
As you can see, if you increase your article writing speed and the amount you can charge per article, you’ll exponentially increase your dollar per hour figure.
However, none of that matters if you can’t get any clients.
