When I first met Renee (name changed to protect her identity), she told me her therapy business was in a good place so she wasn’t interested in attracting new patients. Instead, what she really wanted was to express herself. To get her voice out there. She wanted to reach more people than she otherwise could doing exclusively one-on-one sessions.
Renee knew she had an interesting perspective to share with the world and she enjoyed writing, had some experience with it, but her issue was time. What with seeing patients, doing paperwork, and generally living her life, making time for writing was a struggle. Furthermore, it wasn’t something she could easily crank out in a short period of time. In other words, she wasn’t a fast writer. Realizing she could use some help, she reached out to me.
As a writer for therapists (as well as a content writer for small businesses), it’s easy for me to sit down and write something swiftly. I’ve spent the last 15 years working as a journalist with hard deadlines, and sometimes covered breaking news. That means I can write quickly. Gone are the days of laboring over each word and spending countless hours on one article. I told Renee I would be happy to take the stress out of writing for her and free up her time so she could focus on what she does best: being a therapist. I also told her I would support her in getting her voice heard by a broader audience.
I’m happy to report that’s exactly what’s happened. Articles I ghostwrote for Renee have been placed on prominent websites that reach an estimated 7 million people per month through a variety of partner and advertising networks. Not just one article either — several. On top of that, I’ve ghostwritten not one but TWO chapters for her that will be published in anthologies next year. In fact, based on an article I ghostwrote, one publication reached out to Renee specifically and asked her to contribute a piece to their upcoming anthology. We didn’t even pitch to them! They came to us!
The magic comes from the alchemy of our relationship of course. I’m doing the writing, but the ideas are all Renee’s and she’s the one making sure the information is accurate as well as reflective of her writing style. But still. I’m so proud of her and our work together. It shows that as a ghostwriter for therapists, I get results. There’s no guarantee that something I ghostwrite will be accepted for submission at various publications, but given my track record with Renee, I’d say the odds are in your favor.
If you’d like to risk those odds, if you’re looking to be heard, to become prominent in your field, reach out to me today. I’d love to support you. Together, who knows what we could accomplish?
