Marketplaces are websites where amateur writers post their resumes when looking for ghostwriting work. These are websites that advertise "We have thousands of great writers!" Be aware of the following:
- Marketplaces are sites where anyone can post a service, including plumbers, electricians, and dog groomers. These are NOT professional writing sites.
- The majority of writers on marketplace sites are moonlighters and people who wish to work from home.
- Virtually every resume posted on a marketplace has errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and standard English usage and phrasing.
- People who post resumes on marketplaces know little, if anything, about the publishing industry.
- Marketplace writers charge very little for their services, usually a few hundred dollars. A professional writer charges a professional fee.
- Marketplace writers usually work on three to six books at a time. You deserve a ghostwriter's undivided attention.
- Books written by these amateurs are self-published and do not become bestsellers.
