Essay Writer has been established as an academic writing service with a model typical of a job board or matching service. Specifically, in accessing the website, customers will see a landing page that tells them the process they will use to place an order, accepts bids from registered writers, make a choice, make a payment, and then communicate directly with the writer until the project is completed. In fact, the company promotes itself on its landing page as a writer search platform.
In evaluating the company products and services, we have reviewed the entire website, read through testimonials, checked out the writer profiles, pricing, discounts, and benefits. We also reviewed some sample essays and papers that are published on the site.
The following is what we have found.
Quality of Products / Writers
On its landing page, Essay Writer states that it has 90,000 screened writers and produces over 200 essays or papers every day. It also features some of those top writers via a link at the top of the page. The information provided about the writers is rather scant – a listing of the subjects s/he accepts for orders, when she registered with the company, how many essays or papers have been written and one short positive testimonial. It is obviously up to the customer to ask the right questions to determine if the writer is a match for his needs. This puts a lot of responsibility on the customer to make the right selection., and it can be risky. However, customers are given the opportunity to provide feedback after their experiences.
To determine the quality of products, we relied on the samples published on the site and customer feedback we found elsewhere on the web. Here is our summary:
- The samples were certainly adequate, and, except for a few grammatical errors, written in good English prose. We reviewed a classification essay on good drivers and bad drivers, and a research paper on television violence. The research paper veered off topic a bit in the middle but brought the topic back to its thesis by the conclusion.
- Customer reviews on the web are somewhat mixed and seem to depend upon the writer they selected. Some were very happy, some were somewhat satisfied, and a few not too happy.
- The company does have a communication vehicle for customers and writers to communicate with one another during the writing process, and that is a good thing.
Overall, we can say that EssayWriter is reliable and can be trusted. All customers state that, once they select a writer, they do get the essay or paper they ordered and it is delivered on time.
One issue we had was with the website itself. There are links at the top of the landing page for “writing services” and “editing services.” They appear to be broken. We “back-doored” our way in, only to find that the products and services were not listed at all. There is only a single sentence, “We are the leading academic writing platform where hundreds of top-rated academic writers come to work.” We would encourage the company to fill those pages and fix the links.
Prices and Ways of Payment
Obviously, prices are going to vary, and the company is clear about this fact. While students may be able to get an essay for as little as $10 per page, the difficulty of the assignment, the academic level of the customer, the amount of research involved, and the background and experience of the writer all come into play.
Customers make payment via any major credit card or PayPal, and the company does use secured third-party payment processor. You may feel safe providing both your personal and financial information, as you order and pay for products or services. And EssayWriter.org does accept multiple currencies in payment too.
Needless to say, there are no discounts. Customers should feel free to negotiate prices with the bidders on their projects, but, in the end, the price is determined by agreement. Customers who are good negotiators may have an advantage here.
There are no company-wide benefits that one usually finds with the traditional model of writing services – certain free pages, for example. However, again, these are things that will be worked out between customer and writer. And writers will submit a total bid price – they do not break down the order by specific pages.
One interesting resource on the Essay Writer website is a guide to writing a variety of essays. Reading through a few of these, we noticed a few oddities. For example, the guide for writing a reflective essay reminds the student to cite all research sources correctly. These would not be found in a reflective essay.
There is another resource titled “Essay Topics.” There is a comprehensive list of suggested topics on a variety of subjects, and students struggling to find a topic may find these helpful.
EssayWriter.org is obviously a legal and reliable writing company. We have to assume that its writing services are comprehensive, given the wide range of topics that its featured writers cover. However, the company really must fix the inks to its writing and editing services and provide appropriate content on those pages. For students who do not mind doing a bit of research by discussing their projects with several bidders and negotiating pricing, Essay Writer may be a good choice. We are providing an overall rating of 3+, and hoping that more information on services will be provided in the future.
