SmartWritingService.com has been in the academic writing business since 2008, according to its website. It is our policy to continue to provide evaluations of online writing services as we are able to get to them, and we have selected Smart Writing Services because it has been in business long enough to establish a long-term view of the quality of its products and services. This SmartWritingService review is based upon the same criteria that we use to assess all writing companies and includes an exploration of the site and site content, the Smart Writing Service testimonials that are published on the site, reviews and comments written by customers and published in other places on the web, pricing, sample writings the company has provided, and any other benefits or features we find valuable. All of these sources are then compiled to provide this summary. The goal here is for users of writing services to have as much factual information as possible as they make their selections and spend their money.
Smart Writing Service Services
This company is purely for academic writing needs. Students from high school through graduate level studies may order any form of academic writing product, including essays, papers, presentations, research projects, case studies, coursework assignments, reviews and analyses, and theses. In addition to targeted academic writing, Smart Writing Service also offers admissions essay writing for students at all levels. Beyond that, we did not find editing, proofreading, or re-writing services listed. When we contacted the customer support department, though, they told us that editing and proofreading are available.
Quality of Products and Services
We use a number of things to evaluate the quality of products and services, to include sample writings on the site, testimonials, Smart Writing Service customer reviews found elsewhere on the web, and a few pieces that users of our site submitted for our review and evaluation. The following statements are the result of this investigation:
The site states that all of its writers are native English-speaking and possess either a Master’s or Ph.D. in their writing fields. Obviously, there is no way to check this, so customers will simply need to take SmartWritingServices.com word for it.
On-site testimonials are all very favorable, as we expect them to be. This is a common practice among all writing services.
The site furnishes three sample writings which we could use to assess quality. The topics were scholarly - a comparison of Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar and the sociology of science throughout history, being the two we reviewed. These were obviously a bit old, as the dates of the resources used indicated. Further, we did find grammatical, verb tense, and word usage errors which could indicate ESL writers. In the case of the paper on the sociology of science, we would like to have seen a clear thesis statement in the beginning. It took a while to figure out where the author was actually going.
Off-site comments and reviews are mixed. A few complained about missed deadlines; a few complained about the quality of resources. High school students were generally more pleased with their products than college and grad students.
What we can say about Smart Writing Service is this: It is a long-standing and reliable writing service that customers can trust to deliver their ordered products according to their instructions. There are solid policies with guarantees that are important for customers – no plagiarism, revisions, and direct communication with the writers that have been assigned to complete each order. The other key ingredient? Confidentiality is guaranteed, and customer personal information is secure.
Prices and Ways of Payment
As is common among professional writing services, pricing is based upon the academic level of the student, the type of product, the length, and the deadline requirements. SmartWritingService.com prices begin at $10/page for a basic high school essay with a 14-day deadline and proceed upward as academic levels and deadline requirements become more urgent. Overall, the pricing is average for the industry, so no surprises here.
Payments may be made via any major credit card or PayPal, and a variety of currencies are accepted. Smart Writing Services uses a third-party payment processor, so the customer can feel safe providing their financial information – the company does not have access to any of it.
Relative to SmartWritingService discounts, we were unable to find a link that would describe the discount policy. Nor were we able to find a Smart Writing Service promo code, such as is usually offered for first-time customers.
Also normal for most other sites is a more long-term discount program based upon a number of orders placed. We could find no such program nor was there any mention of SmartWritingService.com coupon codes, which is commonplace among other services.
We can conclude that no discount program exists.
We also were unable to locate any mention of free pages which are common – title page, outline, bibliography, or table of contents. Revisions are free within a specified period of time, and the site states that it does run a plagiarism check on all of its products before delivery.
We will complete our essay writing service review with a summary of SmartWritingService.com pros & cons. It appears that this is a legal writing service that delivers products to its customers, based upon their specifications. We do wish that they would publish some more current and relevant samples, so that students at all levels could evaluate quality. On a scale of 1–5, we give this writing service a 4.
