Visually attractive cover

As a ghostwriter, you know how much a good first impression matters. For that reason, we made sure the first thing your clients see is a stunning cover, with everything you need to start the proposal in an attention-grabbing way. Like the rest of this template, every part is editable, from the text and logo to the background image.

Pre-written introduction section

Our introduction section is the best way to write a meeting summary and explain to your clients exactly which ghostwriting services you will provide them. Whether you're using this template to write a book proposal, show off the possible table of contents, or just some sample chapters, this section is already structured to suit all your needs. Just add a few specifics, and it's ready to be sent out!

Like everything else in this template, it's completely customizable, including the colors, the text, images, and layout.

Processes and timelines

Explaining the process and timeline of ghostwriting may sound complicated and overwhelming to someone who hasn't been through it before. Luckily, our Plan of action section is already made to fit the perfect amount of information. Add some details specific to your services, and it's good to go!

Case study example

The number of ghostwriters that don't mention customer reviews or examples of their work in a proposal is terrifying. We understand it may be difficult due to the work's nature, but if you want to be taken seriously, you need to show that you understood the client's wishes and you can come up with a practical solution.

In this ghostwriting proposal template, we've used a fiction book as an example of a case study. All you need to do is replace our example with one of yours and use the structure we've used.


Getting the pricing right in ghostwriting is difficult. Luckily, no matter if you charge per hour or project, all you have to do in this automatically calculated pricing table is put the numbers in, type a brief one-line description of your services, and the most important part of your proposal is done!

Next steps with digital signing

A digital signature is a perfect way to avoid meeting in person simply to transfer the documents. Just briefly explain your plan in the 'Next steps' chapter, get your client to sign, and your proposal is officially accepted! All digital signatures are 100% legal and compliant.

Your clients can sign even from their smartphones and tablets, and the digital signature certificate will simply show up in your Better Proposals account.

Pre-written contract

No matter if you're a seasoned professional or new to the ghostwriting world, Terms and Conditions will probably slip your mind when you're trying to close the deal with a client. To ensure you're still protected, we have added fully customizable T&Cs at the end of this template.

Get paid straight from the proposal

No more messing around with invoices, no more waiting for checks to clear. This proposal template lets you take payments directly from the proposal, using the integrations with PayPal, Stripe, and GoCardless.

Your docs, your branding

Set up your logo, brand colors, and fonts once to have them automatically embedded in all your documents.

Your questions, answered

Common questions about plans, designs and security

Can I edit your templates?
Yes, you can! Add, delete, or change sections as you see fit. Make a mistake? Just import the template from the Marketplace again and you’re good to go.
You don’t have a template for my industry...what can I do?
Not to worry - all of our templates can be quickly adapted to suit your needs. Many users also prefer to import their own templates, so whether you want something all your own or something fast & easy, there’s a template for you.
Will my clients see your logo?
That’s up to you! Our Premium and Enterprise plans allow you to remove our branding and logo from your documents, giving a clean, white-label feel. Or, you can keep our logo and branding active and earn a commission when recipients sign up for Better Proposals.
Are my documents secure?
Yes, absolutely. Better Proposals uses 256bit SSL security to protect your account.

Your documents are always private, and every recipient is given their own unique encrypted link that can’t be intercepted or accessed by anyone else.
Can I change my plan after purchase?
Yes! Test out any of the plans above, and if it’s not working, you can upgrade or downgrade whenever you want, as often as you want.
I’m not a designer. How do I make my document look presentable?
Better Proposals handles font spacing, colour schemes, and design details by default. We’ll take care of the minor details so you can focus on landing the sale. Feeling stuck? Contact Support and we’ll help you along.
What about custom plans?
Enterprise users can send unlimited documents and every plan allows you to add as many users as you need, so you have ultimate flexibility.
Can you answer another question not listed here?
Yes! We can answer questions in as little as 10 minutes during business hours. Start a chat in the bottom right for a quick answer or contact us and we’ll get back to you shortly.
