VC Ghostwriters and authenticity – VC Cafe

Final week it got here out {that a} tech founder, who needs to stay nameless, makes about $200K a yr ghost writing tweets for VCs… the creator financial system at its greatest!

Ghostwriting tweets for enterprise capitalists is my aspect hustle. Final yr I made about $200,000. Some VCs pays you per tweet. I’ve finished $100,000 threads to announce an enormous funding spherical, and I’ve additionally finished $100 tweets. Different VCs pay you per 30 days. For $5,000 to $10,000, I’ll write 10 unique tweets a month. And the speed goes up rapidly from there.

A single tweet I write can generate as many as 4 million impressions for my shoppers. They’ve accounts that vary in measurement from 2,000 followers to 200,000. Oddly, the smaller the quantity, the extra they’re typically keen to pay. These are the shoppers who want the distribution extra.

Whereas I create plenty of content material, I’ve by no means used a ghostwriter. Whether or not it’s VC Cafe (the place I nerd out on the subjects I put money into), my weekly #Firgun publication (the place I give props to the founders and VCs who made an influence in Israel each Friday) the Remagine Ventures publication (the place I share portfolio updates and ideas on the sectors we cowl), and naturally my twitter feed (the place I someday simply joke round), I take delight in writing every thing myself and consuming my very own pet food. ?

Dilbert is the perfect

It doesn’t imply that I don’t use know-how (like Dalle-2 or Secure Diffusion) to make a pleasant picture or visualise content material, however I consider that authenticity is tremendous necessary. I additionally performed with GPT-3 to check if it may assist me to publish faster, however I ended up altering nearly each phrase to sound extra like me (perhaps an issue they may resolve with sufficient coaching down the road). I gather the info myself and do it the quaint method, staring on the flashing cursor on a clean web page.

My tweets might not get 4 million impressions, my weblog doesn’t organise fancy conferences and my #Firgun publication is a labor of affection, however I nonetheless get a lot out of it. Within the Maslow pyramid of wants self-actualisation is the best step, and discover that writing/ publishing/ creating does it for me!

Listed here are my suggestions for content material creators who wish to get began:

  1. Simply begin
  2. Write about stuff you’re keen about
  3. Hold doing it

The toughest half is getting began, and the second laborious half is to disregard the self-critic inside (simply have a look at my posts in draft mode that can most likely by no means see the sunshine of day). However total, it was by no means a better or higher time to be a creator and as content material turns into an increasing number of artificial/robotic, we may all use a little bit of authenticity.
