Getting Essay Help Online: How To Find A Professional Writer

The internet has made it easy to find people who can help us if we’re struggling: particularly if you’re struggling with academic work. There are tons of great writers out there who would jump at the chance to help you through your difficulties, for a price. Here’s a good list of tips to keep in mind should you choose to seek writing help on the internet.

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for credentials. The person who has nothing to hide has nothing to fear. You have every right to ask them more about their training and experience. In fact, most professional writers will jump at the chance to list their accomplishments! If someone gets offended when you ask for more information on their background, experience, or ability level, it probably means they aren’t very confident – and you should take that as a clear sign to move on to the next candidate.
  • Ask for samples. Any good writer has a stockpile of samples they are willing to furnish to prove their abilities. These could come in the form of paragraphs or whole essays; the main thing is to make sure that they actually know what they’re talking about when they talk about writing! It’s easy to tell good writing from bad writing, even if you’re not a good writer yourself, so it’ll be easy to gauge their ability level from the samples they send.
  • Search their name online. If they say they’re a published writer, chances are something will come up when you type their name into a search engine. Of course, the first things you’ll see probably won’t mean anything, but if you keep digging you should find their name somewhere, attached to their original work. If you dig and dig and dig and can’t find anything that they have produced, that should be enough to make you question their abilities.
  • Break off the arrangement as soon as things start to feel fishy. If your first editorial feedback or content feels wrong, lazy, inefficient, or anything negative, it’s time to call it off. They may demand a percentage of the promised price, which you may or may not give them depending on how much you feel they deserve. If you can tell they put little to no effort into helping you, you probably have the right to say they don’t deserve anything. If it’s a chemistry problem, you might want to provide them with a little bit of the promised price. Either way, don’t feel like you’re “stuck” with someone who isn’t going to help you just because you agreed to work with someone. If it’s not working, it’s not working, and you have to put your own needs first!
