PrivateWriting.com is an online writing service that we have recently investigated at the request of several of our loyal followers. To conduct this review of Private Writing, we took the following steps:
- We read customer reviews and testimonials of PrivateWriting
- Researched PrivateWritings on the BBB website to determine if they are a fraud or scam
- We reviewed policy documents and any available legal notices
- We obtained an essay written by a PrivateWriting writer from a source of ours
- Explored Private Writing website
We follow the same review criteria for all online essay writing services that we review. First and foremost, our concern is writing quality. This must be excellent. Writers must be professional and communicative. Next, we take into consideration customer service. Courtesy is wonderful, but that’s now our only criteria. We want representatives who can answer our questions, and take action to solve any problem we have. Availability is also important to us. No student wants to wait for hours to get a response.
Reputation is key. Even if we have an exceptional experience, that’s meaningless if other customers are unhappy. That’s why we balance our experiences with feedback from students and other customers.
Cost is also an important concern. We don’t expect papers to be cheap, but they should be a great value for the dollar. Every writing website has policy pages. These should be clear, easy to locate and provide a simple explanation of the policies that apply to each customer and transaction. Finally, we look at website navigation. It should be easy and safe to place an order. There should also be plenty of interesting web content.
Factor 1: Types of Writing Services Offered
We were able to discern that both academic and business writing services are available as well as ghostwriting services. Our review is based solely on our experience with academic writing. However, the reviews we read addressed all services and were largely negative.
In the area of academics, they offer the usual papers such as essays, research papers, term papers, lab reports, admissions essays, thesis and dissertations, coursework, book reports, and more. The company also appears to offer other academic assistance. Some of these offerings include help with math assignments and assistance with computer programming problems. They also write SEO posts, articles, web content, and copywriting. Editing, proofreading, and paraphrasing are also available.
Factor 2: Trust and Reliability
In listing the pros & cons, we can say that we did receive our paper on time. We also made payment securely. On the other hand, we also trusted them to deliver a paper that was of appropriate quality and written by a qualified professional. They did not deliver on that promise in any way. Ultimately, we believe that there is no deliberate effort to scam customers, however, we cannot state that this writing service is reliable.
We also explored the website to better understand their policies, and any other offerings they have for students. We did notice that the site does host a blog. All of the posts appear to be written on academic subjects. Some are interesting, but they read more like paper samples than blog posts.
Factor 3: Level of Quality
The paper we received was exceptionally poor. It was clearly not written by a native English speaker in spite of a customer service representative indicating that it would be. There were multiple areas relating to facts, grammar, and spelling.
We can say that the paper was delivered on time. The writer did stick to the subject our source requested. Citations were done correctly, although the resources used were not acceptable for college-level writing.
Factor 4: Pricing and Payment
Our essay costs just over fourteen dollars per page. Taking nothing else into consideration, that’s a pretty average price for the academic writing industry. Unfortunately, because of the low-quality writing and poor customer service, we certainly don’t feel as if we got a good value for our dollar. The payment was made via credit card and we encountered no issues. PayPal is also accepted here. All payments are secured via SSL. This is the industry standard.
There are discounts available. One available option is to use a promo code when placing an order, and other coupon codes are available as well. However, these are no substitutes for quality or professionalism both of which are sorely lacking here.
If anyone is interested in promoting this service to their friends, there is a referral program. This is explained in the company’s policy pages.
Our overall rating is exceptionally low. They failed to impress us on any level in the areas of customer service, or writing quality. If you are considering using this writing service for academic or business writing, please reconsider. We have a long list of high-quality writing services that offer great writing at very fair prices. Feel free to read our reviews. As always, we welcome requests for reviews. We also want to get your feedback on any site we review.
