See, this is a struggle for me. EVERY freelance writing assignment I've done for the last two years has been ghostwriting. So the byline of the thousands of articles I have written are blank. It sucks. I have samples that I wrote that are on full display but they aren't by me and I haven't gotten a clear answer on how to solve this."You get what you pay for" is thoroughly embedded in our psyches. People believe if the price is low, the quality is low.
The corollary is, you better be able to prove you're worth the money. That means build a high quality portfolio and let potential customers see it.
As good as I am, I should be regularly writing for at least .08 per word, but only certain clients pay that and they don't give out a lot of work.
Meanwhile the client who is paying me a little over a penny per word wants me to write 100k words worth of content by August. Funny how that works lol.
I'm not salty, however. I'll figure it out. Then I'll be good to go.
