About MiriamPia
Joined November 2014
Exp. So far, I have ghostwritten 7 full length nonfiction books including one novel. One of them, I only did 20,000 words of. I am now clear on what makes a ghostwriter different from or like an author.
I have one publication: Five Big Questions in Life and how to answer them on sale at Amazon.
Compared to the high earning, very experienced writers I have managed to get a little bit of experience and a teeny bit of pay. Compared to total beginners, I have some experience but really need to learn to get paid better and to improve methods and results.
I do like people more than disliking people in general but can be shy. I am very grateful to find colleagues, help and developmental support. I am hoping to get to a higher level instead of being bogged down by what I still need to learn and to do.
I hope that wasn't already too long winded. Good news/bad news: talkative, can write entire books.
MiriamPia's Goals 3
Money Goals
#1:$45,000 per year, aka 38,000 Euros circa 2014.
#2:How much would I be ecstatic earning? The sky is the limit. I chose a $250,000 car in middle school. I would be OK with being rich rather than only middle class. I thought this would only come true if I hit it big with best selling novels I have actually written myself or by some as yet unknown miracle. It isn't the same if it is a rich husband.
#3: I am willing to work about the ordinary 40 hours per week, sometimes more, but other times less to do this. I have learned that I am not a workaholic but with the right kind of support am willing to do stints of longer hours. If my personal life is and work life are both fun as well and/or enough business and pleasure are mixed, then sure.
#4 I really want to do this in a way that helps me to develop spiritually rather than degenerating me spiritually.

Glad to know you Miriam. My you are an experienced writer. I am a writer unpaid. I have dabbled a bit in writing but just from myself. You have a lot to say cause you are a thinker. Thinkers always have lots to say and or write about. It really shows intelligence at a high level. (me too-smile) Hope you continue to write and get the pay you deserve. Enjoy the community here at WA.

I would like to know more about sorting comments and when to wipe out old ones. I am glad to be getting some but now I wonder - how many to keep, which ones to clear away? Should I leave all the good ones. Also, I have not bought a Plugin and am still getting like 80% spam filler into the comments area which sucks.

Keep the good ones forever. They are important.

Use the free Askimet plugin to get rid of the SPAM. Works great, and it's free

It was not a bother, it was my pleasure. I visited your site today, you need to change what you have on this page from http://Need Ghostwriter to http://www.ghostwriter-needed.com or just www.ghostwriter-needed.com - if you want people to visit your site

Hi Miriam, I was really thankful for your feedback. Good criticism is really important for me to improve. People been saying my website looks good, simple and straightforward. But I want a better feedback than that and you're one of them. Really appreciate that ;-)

No problem. Without enough constructive criticism none us reaches our full potential in matters that are rooted more in discipline than in innate traits. Excessive and unhealthy criticism is as counter productive as constructive criticism in useful.

I am working on mine and like everyone else I prefer the parts of the job that I like more, but have to address the other parts of it anyway.
You are welcome to check out any of mine. What I would like to know is your reaction to the names of the websites and the first impression of the design.
Then, do the ads seem okay or am I really 'off base' about something.
I don't mean to force you into it, but that would be great.
http://miriampia.com/home , http://miriampia.siterubix.com/ , and http://literarylane.siterubix.com/

comment freely. Maybe I did something right, but don't "get it" or something wrong and just need input.

Hi Miriam, based on my short observation of your website http://miriampia.com, you website has some great potential over there. Why I say so?

First and most importantly, your ghostwriting service is a product by itself. When you have your own products, you have more leverage because you can control your own pricing or service fee. More control means more power to you. Other affiliate marketers with no products will have to depend on how much commission they are given.

Secondly, I believe many individuals could use some ghostwriting service to be able to write their book. Heck, I certainly could use one depending on what's the fee like. These individuals may have the knowledge and know-how but lack the proper writing skills or even time to write their desired books.

What can you do to reach your audience and potential clients?
There are so many tips and tutorials on that here at WA.

Some quick ideas in my head right now
- Write related article post on your website and implementing targeted keywords. This will help to bring visitors and traffic to your website, and in turn drives up your website ranking.
- Go to related forums, engage with the forumers while at the same time promote what you have to offer.
- Promote your work and service through social medias. It's all about the social media 2.0 right now.

Okay that is all from me, need to work on my website as well lol!

Hope I help you a bit today. I have some more ideas for you but maybe I can share next time.

Good luck and all the best Miriam!

Thanks for your reply. We can negotiate services if you would like me to write for your website/s. I like people to pay generously within their means. In fact, I just did a piece of work for another person building sites here at WA. Void Visuals has really impressive visual artwork at his websites here. English is not his native language. Like myself he is dealing with living in Germany. If you need an article or something just let me know. That is my stronger point. The visual graphics etc. of web design and drawing in traffic are not.

Thanks. I'm full of doubt. The only good thing about that, is that most philosophy people are and can make use of it in that field.

I started putting websites together but don't seem to get how to connect them to the affiliate sites or to the streams of web traffic. I have only watched the first 2 or 3 lessons.

How about you?

Being in doubt can be tricky. It keeps the mind from going in the direction the heart wants. Living in doubt can become tiring. I wish you much success in a life free from too much doubt :). The one thing I can share with you is this; take it ONE LESSON AT A TIME. I've jumped ahead and wasted way too much time on myself and others here in the WA community. If you do this all your questions will be answered. Hope you have a productive day. I wish I had more time but I've got my day job to attend to. Take care and think good thoughts ...

mbani Premium
Hi .. I'm back. I have a day job which keeps me very busy. Wish I had more time to devote to this.

To answer you question; watch the videos. One lesson at a time. If you skip ahead you will get confused. I know because I did that and wasted much time of my own and other WA members. You will see soon how to connect your sites with affiliate sites ... if you haven't already :)

have a nice day!

I have started putting together websites. I watched the first couple of lessons. I have a niche. I don't get how to make all the connections. Some aspects of working online I know well but in other respects I am totally clueless. I am a very hopeful but also afraid because I have used the Internet trying to earn a living as a writer for a decade but only managed to earn thousands rather than tens of thousands each year. I hadn't planned on trying affiliate marketing but now I am.

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video:

How to Create an Online Business - The 4 Steps

Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Miriam. :)

I can use all the competent help I can get. I am a little weird because for the past few years I have spent way more time 'by myself' in person than ever before in my life. It has affected me.
Reply
Kyle Premium
If you can help people, you can create a successful business doing so. This goes for absolutely any niche Miriam and since you are within the online world, it doesn't require any real life human interaction.

Over the years I have personally been involved in many niches and the same principles held true. If you help someone, you build trust and once you have trust, you can generate revenue through your promotions. Not until then.

That is what you are going to learn all about here at WA and the proper strategies to create a business online. I look forward to working with you and if you need a hand with anything moving forward, simply drop me a reply here and I will give you a hand.

I believe you are telling me the truth, but my experience does not entirely confirm what you have told me. My main issues are knowing which order to do which in and whatnot to make sure I am connected the right way. It is important to me to also sell my own products as well as promoting others. Thanks for responding.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, that is all part of it. If you build trust though first, it is much easier to sell products. That is where the help part comes in, it is truly a trust builder. As you move through the training and take action, you are going to see your business come together.

MiriamPia Premium
I really appreciate the systematic approach but have not received a straight answer about getting domain names I own. Why did I run into a problem? Are they dependent upon credit cards? I had believed I built trust with about 1000 people online and in person across more than two years but my business never took off. It went from nothing to a little something more but still puny enough for my more successful peers to mock and feel superior and to choose to not help me earn as well as they do.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You have to buy a domain name through services like http://namecheap.com if you want one of your own. They are about $15 per year for your own .com, so not all that expensive and you own it like your own real estate.
Reply
MiriamPia Premium
Truthfully I have gone to the website and attempted to follow the instructions but was blocked for reasons which defy my own understanding. Perhaps you have insight into this. Do you know whether or not the site only accepts credit card payments and not debit cards? That would do it in my case.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, they accept credit card payments as well as Paypal. You can use either payment type.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Miriam and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Is it best to specialize or diversify? In the past I often wrote articles or blogs and not only books. I liked trying different types of writing, but sometimes variety is counter productive. Also, should I make totally separate websites for book ghostwriting versus articles & blogs? Also, is it good or bad to integrate works I am the author of with work done on contract?
Reply
Affiliateer Premium
Follow the training to get ideas about subject matter and how to define a good niche. About the writing, there are a lot of us freelancers here. So you can put the question out to the community and I'm sure you'll get helpful responses.

For ghostwriting, you definitely need permission from the person who pays you before displaying that type of work on your site. I'd be inclined to put up one site for writing blogs, website copy and ghostwritten books. Then put up a separate site, using the title as the domain if available, for each book you write under your own name.

Welcome to WA.
