What is difficult for some comes easy for others. This saying holds true in academics and even in the realm of essay writing. While some students find the task of writing essays boring, frustrating, tedious or seemingly impossible, there are those who enjoy and revel in the task. For these individuals, conducting research on a topic, analyzing the material and transferring that knowledge onto paper is as simple as taking a stroll in the park. These people find joy in the writing process and for them it is as easy as breathing air.
If you are one of these people who see reading, researching and writing as their strength, then it is only natural to feel the need to capitalize on it. Athletes play sports, those with mechanical inclinations gladly take on engineering projects, and writers write. It is not wrong to excel or to profit from one’s gifts, talents or hard work. So, when writers are asked to exchange their skills for money, the answer is often simple. Not only do writers get to do something that they enjoy or love, but they are also able to generate a significant amount of revenue. And, like all small business ventures, a good first step would be identifying your target market.
It is logical to assume that those who would engage the services of a custom essay writer are solely procrastinators, lazy people or spoiled rich kids who have the money to burn and want someone else to do the heavy academic lifting for them. This is true…to an extent. There are students who would put off writing an essay until the very last minute only to find that they neither have the aptitude or the knowledge to craft a well worded document. Then there are those who just don’t want to put in the work, whether due to sheer laziness or lack of caring, yet feel the need to submit a passable piece of work. While these may not be the most attractive of clientele, they are nonetheless included in the category.
Yet for every one of these types of “customers”, there are a host of other clients who really do need the help of expert writers to help them present a cohesive and well thought out essay. At the top of the list are ESL (English as a Second Language) students. These students may have sufficient or even expert knowledge of the subject matter but really need help expressing their thoughts, ideas, opinions and arguments in the English language. As a side note, this also holds true for those looking to write essays in any language foreign to their own.
Even students who are highly capable and have the ability to write their own high quality essay may feel the need engage the services of an essay writer. They usually do so because of a time deficit. Such students usually face a heavy course or work load, and while they can definitely do it themselves, the burden alleviated from them by utilizing a professional writer will allow them to focus on more pressing matters, like finishing other reports, studying for exams, and minor things like eating and catching a few hours of sleep.
Once a custom essay writer has been engaged by a client they must then settle on the terms of service and method of payment. There are usually two ways to view this. The first being through the lens of a freelance writing company. These online companies usually provide an infrastructure whereby a client can be connected to a writer, or where a writer can search for work. This is highly convenient for all parties involved and, in most cases, also provides a secure means to transfer funds between parties. The only downside is that the freelancing company usually takes a percentage of the writer’s fee as a quasi-brokerage fee. The second method is by conducting the transaction privately. In this scenario, the essay writer and client conduct business directly, whereby the essay is usually submitted through email and the funds transferred via PayPal or a direct bank transfer. Understandably, there are inherent risks with this type of work and a great deal of trust must be built between both parties to ensure that each holds to their end of the bargain. While there are any number of payment options, it may be best to utilize either a full upfront payment scheme (in which 100% of the payment is requested before the work is started), or a 50/50 payment system (in which the writer is paid 50% of the fee upfront and the remainder paid upon submission of the completed work).
Asides from the payment conditions there are also a couple of other factors to consider before the essay can be started. The writer should determine whether the client needs the full piece to be written or just a partial. Does the client even need an essay written or for their work to be proofread by an expert writer? The need for any research to be conducted should also be hammered, as well as who will be assigning the actual topic, subject matter and thesis for the essay. On the outset, these may seem like small matters, but they have a profound impact on the essay and the contracted work itself.
