How to Hire a B2B Ghostwriter
Marketing and selling complex products and services in a competitive marketplace are easier said than done. How can a vendor or service provider engage a prospective customer who is indifferent to their brand? They say something that's remarkable. How do you, as a senior executive, create an engaging and compelling story? If you're wise, then you hire an executive ghostwriter and keynote storyteller that has a proven track record of performing the research, developing the strategy and authoring a highly customized narrative.
A skilled and experienced executive ghostwriter plays an essential role in helping their client demonstrate their thought leadership in a meaningful and substantive way. While business leaders want to articulate a scenario that describes a series of events that concludes with their company providing the best solution and closing a new sale, they encounter many obstacles that inhibit progress.
They typically can't find the time or they don't have the internal resources to research the situation analysis of a target market, develop a cohesive offering strategy and then outline the steps within the buyer's journey that enable a client to achieve their desired business outcome. If you want to become an authority in your chosen markets, then you must choose to invest your budget in producing a differentiated narrative that can become the foundation for your go-to-market success.
You have to be bold, and brave. Dare to be different.
That said, freelance writers who don't have relevant domain knowledge -- e.g. the marketplace, the buyer personas and their needs and wants -- will find it very difficult to produce a deliverable to your satisfaction. Factor in a requirement that they must have prior knowledge of your complex technology, or the ability to quickly attain that insight, and you've essentially defined a predictable path to disappointment and wasted effort.
