Let’s Talk Multidisciplinary Marketing

5 Questions You Need to Ask Before Ghostwriting for a Client

Ghostwriting is a reliable, steady way to increase your income, while improving your skills as a writer and a journalist. By creating content for a client who lacks the time or the skill to do so themselves, you’re responsible for an in-depth understanding of their speaking tone, thorough interviews, and of course the production of the final piece of work.


To add to the intensity and seriousness of ghostwriting, the root word “ghost” directly implies that you must complete the job while remaining out of sight and that whoever you are creating content for gets to use their own byline.

To do the job properly, you have to ask questions—many questions.…

Though quite a bit of attention is paid to small businesses and startups in tech, it’s impossible to deny that most profits and power still belong to tech’s big names: Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc. Thus, tech entrepreneurs and tech small-business leaders must be more driven and inspired than entrepreneurs and small-business leaders in other fields – and most go above and beyond in this respect. In fact, most create paragons of diligence and determinedness, and few ever seem to back down once they’ve made up their minds.

Get inspired

However, seeming isn’t necessarily being. Most small tech leaders, even those who appear undaunted, require motivation every day, and not all their inspiration comes from within.…

Small Business Accessibility 101

Did you know that 50 million Americans have a disability of some sort? This is 18% of the population. Many of these disabled persons are your very customers – or potential customers. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) took effect in March 2011 and sets standards for disabled accessibility.

The ADA requires “reasonable accommodations” by law in both the private and public sector.

Many small businesses don’t know the actual definition of an employer under the ADA. The ADA defines an employer as someone who:

  • Employs 15 or more full-time employees every business day
  • Employs the above for 20 or more weeks per year
  • Engages in a commerce industry

If your business doesn’t meet this criterion, you won’t need to follow Title I of the law.…
