The Covid-19 pandemic has affected businesses greatly in Ghana. Many workers have lost their jobs and many others are thrown in depression.


According to the COVID-19 Business Tracker Survey conducted by the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the World Bank, about 770,000 workers (25.7% of the total workforce) had their wages reduced and about 42,000 employees were laid off during the country’s COVID-19 partial lockdown.

Why Hire A GW Ghostwriter?


When we started our ghostwriting services, our ghostwriters were often asked by people in business and professionals why the need for publishing books. Our business ghostwriter – the Indian writer, Rupi, listed three of the benefits of publishing a book as a businessman or a professional.

1. It places you as an industry expert or leader. It took me two months to convince a construction worker to write a book. And it took less than that for him to land a huge government project. He called and said ‘Rupi, you’re a God.’ I replied ‘no, I am only a ghostwriter. It is your own story I wrote. He retorted ‘then you wrote it well because I have suddenly become some expert in the industry and that has challenged me to read more and more, and we might write another book soon.

2. It gives you an advantage in a competition. A friend chose from a recommended list of electronic shops, the one who has published more articles and books on Electronics.

3. It generates leads and makes the sales job easier. People don’t do business with companies they don’t know and don’t trust. The more often your name is seen in print or online, the more visibility, credibility and name recognition you will have.

Useful Tips For Making Successful Admission and Scholarship Application


Ghana Writes experts in admission and scholarship applications recently sat down with one of our clients, “Ivan” to review his rejected application to the Stanford University Scholarship program. And below are some of the useful points they raised;

Your essays should answer all the questions or prompts

Concerning his essays, the team criticized him constructively. First, they advised him to go straight to answer the essay prompts whenever he sits to write application essays. As charming as it can be to start with a quote (don’t do it!), story, or drawn-out metaphor, clearly and directly answering the prompt should be the top priority for an application essay. This way, the reader won’t feel lost about whether or not the applicant answered the prompt. Sometimes, an essay sufficiently answers a prompt, but the applicant buries the lede with preceding paragraphs, and the reader gets lost along the way. The smartest approach is to make sure this doesn’t happen by being clear and upfront. Once you have answered the prompt, you can then go into a story, metaphor, or a very carefully selected, not overused quote. And speaking of quotes…

Don’t start your essays with a quote

Many applicants choose to begin their essays with quotes, but this approach has its faults. Namely, it relies on another person’s words to convey your thoughts from the very beginning of the essay instead of relying on your voice. It’s better to spend the first few lines of your essay answering the prompt clearly than to share a quote that may be overused and may not even get your point across.

Be mindful of your biases

Though this point is arguable, please, to make a successful application, be mindful of displaying gender bias. If you made reference to interest in particular courses at the school you’re applying to, it is notable to admissions committee members if you only name men, which is a persistent problem in scholarly research, academia, and the corporate world. Our simple advice is to make sure to list at least one course taught by a woman in the subject area that interests you. Many applicants name only courses taught by men without even realizing it. Keeping an eye on how your biases might pop up can help you avoid this common mistake.

Avoid typos

Finally, we’ve all heard this last piece of advice, but it remains true. Avoid typos as much as possible. Misspellings or incorrect phrases happen to the best of us, but they can also taint an admissions committee member’s opinion of an applicant. Make use of spell check and ask friends, colleagues, or hired experts like us to proofread your materials to avoid leaving a bad impression on the admissions committee.
