Three Cornerstones to Consider When Choosing an Essay Writing Company by Lucy Adam

Writing
Three Cornerstones to Consider When Choosing an Essay Writing Company by Lucy Adam from the UK offers a look at an industry that is no doubt much larger than most educators realize. She also gives good advice for choosing and working with these companies. While I don’t recommend passing someone else’s work off as your own for a grade or college admission, I do think that getting feedback from a professional writer is a great way to improve your own writing.

Why Students Pay for Essays

  • Why Students Pay for Essays: According to statistics, essay writing is one of the most quickly developing niches in the writing business. Let’s face it – the essay writing industry is worth over 128 million dollars or 100 million pounds and is expected to grow further in the future. For example, the two biggest UK essay mills process more than 20,000 orders a year!
  • This undeniable popularity of essay writing services opens great perspectives for both writers and clients. The latter, however, are always in danger, as they can never know what to expect from the ubiquitous companies on the market. In fact, paying for an essay is basically gambling, as in 90 cases out of 100 you cannot be sure of the reliability of a company that you are using for the first time.
  • But is buying an essay a worthwhile option? How to make sure that the company provides the best value for money? How to hit the bull’s eye when ordering an essay for the first time?Below are three cornerstones to consider before making your first order.

#1 Type of Agency

  • The first thing you will encounter is the company’s website. Ideally, it should be neat, understandable and contain detailed information about the service. If you are satisfied with what you see, compare the type of work you need with the services provided by the agency. Some companies sell ready-made papers, while with others you give detailed instructions to writers in order to explain to them what exactly you need. The big advantage is that you can ask the author to adapt his or her writing style to match yours so that the paper will not look like a sudden huge leap from “D” to “A” level work.
  • Moreover, a reliable writing company must ask you about your class and writing skills, not to mention the paper guidelines. If you are not requested to send a sample of your previous essays, how can you be sure that the future work will suit you? Decide what you need. A custom essay, essay help, research paper, term paper, homework help or proofreading? When it comes to essays, they can be narrative, descriptive, expository, persuasive, argumentative, analytical, etc. The more detailed the guidelines, the easier the essay writing and the less you will be charged.

#2 Reputation

  • Apart from feedback, the best way to check whether a service is reputable is to test its customer support. It most likely operates via email. If so, make an enquiry and wait for a response. It should come very quickly and contain a detailed explanation of the issue. If that does not happen or is delayed, think twice before ordering an essay from this company. You must be able to get in touch with them whenever you need, 24/7.
  • As for reviews from previous clients, it is better to check them personally by contacting a few satisfied customers from the list. Unfortunately, many companies pay strangers to write feedback. Another sign of reliability is the amount of personal information requested. If the company asks for data that you think they do not need (for example, your social security number, phone number or birthday), these people may want to make money off your identity.

#3 Rates, or Value for Money

  • To get the best value for money, pay attention to the following:
    Are Ph.D. and MA writers onboard?
    Do you have an opportunity to choose the author and communicate with him or her yourself?
    Is there a rating system showing the best writers alongside the price?
    Is it possible to get a free sample to assess the level of writing and general look of an academic paper?
  • The price may seem to be crucial, but this is only at first glance. Purchasing based on price alone, you have a high chance of failure, especially when it comes to admission essays. If you need writing help only once, is there really a good reason to save money? Do you care how much you will spend on a ticket to Oxford, Cambridge or any other university that you have been dreaming about for a long time?!

The Conclusion, or Do Ethics Matter?

  • Being a conscientious student (which I hope you are), you cannot help but consider the ethical side of paying for an essay. The problem is a complex one and everything depends on your personality. Cheating is bad, no doubt, but haven’t you asked yourself how fertile the ground must be to generate hundreds of essay mills all over the world, not just in the UK and USA? Don’t you think that worldwide educational problems are too significant to pretend that there is a level playing field?
  • How many chances do non-natives have to outperform natives in essay writing? What about students engaged in voluntary activities? What about those who have personal problems? Do they deserve special conditions? Is education personalized enough? Is it fair and capable of providing students with relevant, up-to-date knowledge that will remain in demand for at least the near future? Since these and many other burning questions remain unanswered, don’t blame yourself too much for paying for an essay. Life isn’t fair and only the strongest will survive

Dr. Doug’s Take on Buying Essays

  • While I generally don’t favor submitting work you have purchased as if it is your own, I think it’s important for my readers to understand that this goes on and how the system works. Here are some questions I suggest you and your students consider in addition to the thoughts offered by Lucy.
  • 1. Rather than leveling the playing field, doesn’t purchasing essays tip it more in favor of students with means and against poor kids?
  • 2. If your purchased admissions essay gets you into a better school where you can’t compete, will you be more likely to drop out than if you went to a school that your real skills can get you in?
  • 3. I would hope that most teachers would have students submit writing samples done entirely in class along with outside assignments. This would allow the teacher to see each student’s skill level, which they could compare to submitted work done outside of class. Would this cause more kids to get caught cheating?
  • 4. It seems that going through the process of selecting an author, providing him or her with a sample of your writing and negotiating topic and price would be a valuable experience that requires critical thinking and problem solving. As a result, the student could be building skill for life in the real world.
  • 5. Would it be possible for a service to help a student edit a piece or writing? This wouldn’t involve any more cheating than kids do when they ask a parent or friend to read what they have written. I know my wife read everything my daughter wrote for submission and gave her suggestions for making it better. She also proof read everything I wrote while I doing working on my doctorate. Getting good feedback from a professional writer is valuable. If you can afford to purchase help, this is what I suggest.
