Today we are going to talk about something interesting because just like any other service ghostwriting is a service that takes privacy and security quite seriously.
That is why it might be difficult for a ghostwriter to provide samples of their prior work without violating they are non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with previous clients.
In order to understand that we must understand what is a ghostwriter. A ghostwriter is someone who has to keep their identity secret and they have to write on behalf of someone else.
Ghostwriters can write anything from books to scripts and web content, but the primary thing that they have to maintain is anonymity because that is the primary reason why they are being hired.
They are being hired to keep their names a secret so that their clients can claim ownership of the content.
However, that presents a challenge because if a ghostwriter cannot showcase their work then they cannot get any new commissioned ghostwriting work in the first place.
If they show their material then they can risk violating their agreement with previous clients.
There is a simple solution to this and one word will be able to explain the solution.
Yes, samples will allow a workaround for the ghostwriters because they will not have to reveal the entire work and they can simply show their writing style with the help of a small sample like a paragraph in order to showcase their skills to their prospective clients.
So, you might be wondering what kind of samples are ghostwriters allowed to show without violating their NDA.
Let us find out.
When we are talking about a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) it can be different for different kinds of content because books can have a very strict non-disclosure agreement (NDA) where the ghostwriter cannot reveal their name even for a single paragraph.
The rules are a little bit easier when it comes to blog posts because, although very important, blogs do not hold the same level of importance as other content and that is why ghostwriters can showcase parts of a blog that they have written. Of course, with permission from the owners.
If the clients are specifically asking for book examples then it might be difficult because publishers will never allow ghostwriters to tell other people that they have ghostwritten the content of any book.
The ghostwriter can do a simple thing and can ask the clients to provide them with a book where they can author a summary or they can even ask the clients to give them digital copies of a book that is incomplete and ask them to write the next chapter as a sample.
Ghostwriters are also writers and they probably have a lot of material written under their own name whether it is in magazines or blog posts or other places and ghostwriters can show their original material.
There will be no need to think about any NDA agreements because the ghostwriter is the sole owner of that content because it is written under their name and they have directly authored it.
This is a very good way of providing samples because while the other types of samples might be very brief but this kind of sample can be the entire blog or article.
If the clients are not satisfied with the samples and if they want something fresh or if they want something very custom and something relating to the topic of their liking then the clients can always request the ghostwriter to write a sample just for that specific client.
This is actually a good thing because the clients can be very specific about the topic and there is no NDA to follow because there is no contract which can also mean that this custom sample can be utilised for other clients as well.
This is the best way for any ghostwriter to showcase their talent and it is to simply show all the work that they have done in the past after asking permission from prior clients.
If the ghostwriter wants to show their exact talent to any new client then this is the best option for them but they must always make sure to get written permission from the prior clients.
If they only rely on verbal permission then it might cause legal issues in the future if the owner of any content forgets that they had given the ghostwriter permission.
This was the blog about how ghostwriters can provide writing samples for new clients without violating any non-disclosure agreement(NDA) that they had with their previous clients.
