I know a lot of paid bloggers are hiring ghost writers to help them do their writing tasks especially when they are beating a deadline. I have not done this and i am just curious on how much they usually pay them, considering we are paying the taxes? Is it a 50-50 or 30-70 share or whatever? If you have hired ghost writers, do you pay them as soon as they complete the task or wait for the advertiser to approve it and pay you for it? If you pay them as soon as they finish the task without waiting for the advertiser to pay you for it, what if the advertiser disapprove it or cancel the job? Any ideas?
