How to avoid scams while looking for an essay writer

Sometimes one gets overloaded with assignments, but due to personal commitments, one finds it quite difficult to manage them along with others. Besides, writing an essay without an error may sound easy but it’s definitely not a piece of cake. This is especially true for writing essays in college, when the high school level of essay writing doesn’t come in handy anymore.

How is essay writing useful

Essay writing and learning essay writing skills are very important for students to excel academically. Professors assess the assignments based on the creativity and knowledge which a student as an essay writer will communicate to them. On this assessment, you receive grades, low or high depending on the quality of work that you have submitted.

How does online service help?

When you are overburdened by the thoughts on how to complete your assignments, online services can help you a great deal in writing an essay. One can easily find an essay writing service, which will enable you to get done with all your essays timely. This will also allow the student to get good grades, while they can spend their time in leisure activities. Life will become easier for students as they can now visit their favorite places, watch movies, play games or go to an uncle or auntie for a visit, without having to worry about their assignment deadlines.

How can you get easily scammed?

Owing to swift advancement in technologies, scamming has also become easier on websites. Many websites can be found online that take money from the students and later refuse to work. You need to be cautious while looking for any essay writing service to complete your assignments. Any invalid online service can easily take your money by earlier soliciting you by their website and then later not replying to your messages.

Tips for students to avoid a scam

If you are thinking of getting your papers or assignments done online, you need to be watchful of the scammers. It’s not easy to recognize these scammers among other websites.

 Look for reviews

One of the first things you must be looking at is reviews of the website in international forums. Before placing an order, you will need to look at the customer reviews of the service availed. These reviews can be found on social networking sites that allow the public to comment on any services offered to the public. An excellent example of such a social networking website is Reddit.

Payment options

A student should also be watchful of available payment options. A website that offers a direct transfer option is most likely fake. This website does not want to share any of the details with the client regarding their services. Whereas websites that offer multiple payment options such as debit or credit for payment purposes should be considered credible.

Review forums

Students can also find reviews of the service providers at writing forums. These forums discuss issues as well as the information relating to any form of writing, including online essay writing services. On such forums, one may find a hint of which websites are preferred from others to get the assignments done.

Features of the service

Another aspect which you should consider is how much value the service is offering you corresponding to the payment made by you. This should include the features offered by the service in comparison to other services offering you help in writing assignments. Here is the list of features that an individual must consult.

Plagiarism

You should also look for the website limit on plagiarism. For instance, if the website isn’t offering a plagiarism report, then it might be fake. Plagiarism reports add credibility to an essay and if you want your assignment to be remarkable, its plagiarism level should be at a minimum. The credible websites categorically state the range of plagiarism they comply with. 

Customer services

You should also judge the quality of service by the responsiveness of the customer services. If the representative responds late to your queries or is ignoring your information demanding mails, there can be something wrong with the service. If the website doesn’t value its customers, you should stay away from it. 

Additional services

The writer can look for additional services which they might need to finish their assignment. For instance, some writers are required to complete their assignments urgently and give them an early draft of their work. If the website in question doesn’t entertain special requests from the customers, it might be fake.

Native speakers and writers 

Students should also be careful whether the online service provides them with the facility of native writers. Most probably writers from other parts of the world that have little knowledge about the English language or grammar structuring may get hired to write your paper. You can also communicate with the writer and say please have my money and write my essay as per the essay instructions. This will allow you to check the level of the writer’s skills you are giving your work to.

To conclude, there are numerous ways one can realize whether a website is legit or offering fraudulent services. For this purpose, students need to look at various forums that offer reviews of several writing services. This is important because as a student you will need to save money from any scammer. This will adversely impact your personal budget, that might already be quite limited. 

Hope this helps you avoid any essay writing scams in future!

How to Contact an Essay Writing Service to get your Essay done – 2022 Guide

In a fast-paced world today, life has become hectic for almost everyone and can often become a bit too much to deal with. All of us are simply trying to juggle our day-to-day responsibilities and manage our chores while expecting the best possible outcome in each of these scenarios. People pursuing academic life are facing the same loop of crisis as people belonging to any other field or category of life. Essay writing is also a difficult task you can take help from an essay writer to do your task.

At a time like this, especially with the pandemic restricting the freedom we have been so accustomed to enjoying, it is important to look after your mental health and manage your workload. If you are a student stuck with an overwhelming number of assignments and the academic pressure is killing you, we have some great options to help you out. One of those life saving options include essay writing services websites.

Academic writing services have always been a great helper for students and with its help, students have been finding solutions to their problems for a long time now. Whether it be a simple essay, or an entire semester worth of work, there are services out there with just the right people to get it all done for you.

If you are also looking for one such writing helper website, you must not trust every writing service website out there because to find a good essay writing service, it is important to put in some research. To have your work done in the best possible way, choose an essay writing service that has several fundamental features. To have your project completed, all you have to do is  contact the finest writing service of your choice and follow these simple steps.

  1. Check Service ranks: It is always important to check where service ranks among the competition. It usually gives you a good idea of how a certain service is doing among its competitors, regarding the service provided.
  2. Public Reviews: One must always check public opinion and reviews before using certain services. While a few comments or reviews may be biased based on personal experiences, it allows one to have an idea of the service quality being offered.
  3. Value for the customers: For students, it is important to not only receive a good product but to have a great experience which includes receiving excellent customer service. An organization that does not care for its customers can never truly do a good job. So, it is important to find a service where the service providers truly care for their customers and are passionate about delivering a good experience.

Writing a good essay is one thing, but being someone that provides qualitative work to go with good service, that’s something worth looking out for. If you still belong to some High school or college and are pursuing a career education, but unfortunately you are not able to get time to sit and write your desired stuff, an online writing service is just the right choice for you to get your work done before the deadline. For that, you must keep in view the work of the essay service providers because quality work is just as important as the product being delivered on time.

While it’s simple to just look up a website and go about exploring it, getting in contact with the team behind the curtain to get your work done according to your demand is entirely a different experience. A good and quality essay writing service must provide an opportunity for the client to contact or communicate with their writer to avoid any possible confusions that are often experienced in certain companies due to miscommunication. Such services effectively save a lot of time and avoid confusion.

Placing an order to get an essay written isn’t as simple as saying “write my essay” to the person on the other end. You have to make sure they understand the technicalities, know your requirements, and can deliver what you truly want. You must provide all the information and attachments in the world, but if your request isn’t correctly communicated or accepted, the chance of getting a quality essay gets lower.

When it comes to online writing service providers, you can place 2 orders of different subjects with the same service and expect entirely different outcomes. This means that the quality of work entirely depends on whether or not the essay writer is equipped with the knowledge of your certain field of study and if they can cater to your writing needs successfully or not. If you get a successful result for a certain subject, it’s best to stick with that writing specialist and continue.

A lot of students are hesitant to place an order if the service seems expensive. But trust me, going for something that costs less at the risk of getting poor quality and service is not worth it. Most high schoolers and college students often prefer a essay writing service that charges a bit higher than others but delivers high-quality work. This is because getting a good essay and a great customer experience are both equally important.

In the end, it all comes down to personal experience and judgment. Usually, people do not think before contacting a writing service, but once someone is satisfied with their online public reviews, they get more comfortable and more than willing to pay whatever is due as long as the work delivered is qualitative and on time.

5 Tips for Effective Content Marketing

5 Tips for Effective Content Marketing

Want better content marketing, then try these tips below and start getting more business today.

Think Beyond the Blog

One of the things you should be doing is thinking outside of the blog. While blogging is one of the most effective ways to reach your target audience, it’s not the only thing you should be focused on. People are constantly changing the way they consume content. To effectively adapt, you’ll need to embrace more than a single method of delivering content.

While it can be a daunting task for a lot of people, video content can be a great way to expand your reach. A report by Hootsuite noted that YouTube was able to pull in 2 billion monthly users monthly. By crafting quick and concise videos, you can create content that is easily digestible, compelling, and shareable. For content marketing help get in touch.

Properly Segment Your Audience

You’ll find that you have a lot of different types of people that make up your audience. A lot of these people will be viewing your content for completely different reasons. Without segmenting your audience, you will be underdelivering for some of them. You need to craft content for specific portions of your audience which is what segmenting does. That way, you can better address their needs. This will end up helping you maximize engagement with your content.

For instance, you might find that the content that resonates with brand new subscribers is completely different from existing subscribers. You need to figure out what each segment wants and craft content that speaks directly to them. One of the best ways to do this is by leveraging an email marketing tool. That makes it very easy to segment your audience correctly.

Create Infographics

Everyone has those moments where they skimmed through an article or even read through an article and still didn’t find the answer they were looking for. This is something everyone does. This is where infographics can help. A lot of people love the visual aspect of infographics. It breaks things down into an easy-to-read and easy-to-digest manner. With an infographic, you can increase engagement and help your visitors get what they were looking for out of your content.

If you are doing a blog post that incorporates a lot of data and non-visual elements, you’ll want to use infographics to make it more engaging and more fun. There are plenty of different infographic tools you can use to accomplish this.

Optimize the Headlines

Whenever someone goes to Google to complete a search, they are looking to get their answers. Nice web design is worth nothing – your headline is one of the main things that acts as an attention grabber. You want a good headline that drives people to your site. Try to create a headline that is well optimized to deliver what the prospective visitor is seeking.

By doing your research and figuring out what your competition is missing on, you should be able to create headlines that fill the gap. A lot of people aren’t going to continue reading your post if it doesn’t get straight to the point of why they landed on your site, to begin with.

Understand the Data

While the analytics of your site may seem incredibly boring, unnecessary, and overwhelming – they are essential. You must not only pay attention to these metrics, but you must learn what they mean. They are going to deliver you essential information about your site that will dictate your success.

If you aren’t looking at and adapting based on what the data is telling you, it’s going to cost you. You could be spending far too much time focusing on things that aren’t as important. You could even be setting yourself up for failure. Focus on the data and understand it and you’ll have a much greater chance at success.

Achieving Your Goals and Being in the Moment By Ariel & Shya Kane

Achieving Your Goals and Being in the Moment
An Excerpt from Practical Enlightenment
by Ariel & Shya Kane
We’re not implying that you shouldn’t have goals. What we are saying is that there is a different way to go about fulfilling your heartfelt desires, where there is well-being every step of the way and where you recognize that the result is not more important than this moment.  Here is an example:

Our friend Menna sold her first novel, Men, Money and Chocolate, to a publisher that liked it so much that they also paid her an advance for a sequel, which she had yet to write. Thrilled, Menna wrote her second novel and submitted it to them. They rejected it. Feeling stressed but determined, she wrote another version of a sequel and the publisher didn’t like it either.

Discouraged, she closed herself off from her husband and her world while she got down to business. After much stress and struggle she completed yet an entirely different novel, which she submitted. They rejected that attempt also.

By now Menna was tired, irritable, and feeling like perhaps her first book was an accident.  Maybe it was just a fluke that I wrote something good in the first place, she thought. Sitting at her desk, she would gaze longingly at the garden out back, wishing to be out in nature; but thinking that this was off-purpose, she would wrestle her attention back to her project.

Menna eventually wrote an outline for yet another novel, which she submitted to her publisher. As a result, they called her in for a meeting and told her she needed to go in another direction.  How she was going to go about it, they didn’t know. But if something didn’t happen soon, she would be obligated to give back her advance.

Tired, frustrated, confused, upset and feeling pressured to get it done in truth it was time to take a break. Fortunately for her, Menna was registered to attend one of our transformational immersion courses in Costa Rica along with her husband Artur. Once there, she let everything go. She forgot about home, forgot about being a writer, let go of trying to get somewhere and trying to get her book done. She simply invested herself in being where she was while being there for the experience. She rode horses, zipped through the tree tops on a canopy tour, ate delicious food, enjoyed friends and made new ones. She also sat in the course room and truly listened.

Menna marveled at the birds, how the rain could fall hard enough to practically drown out speech, only to have the sky clear a short time later, and she watched the ground steam as the sun reemerged. She discovered her husband once again. She enjoyed Artur – really enjoyed him. She fully engaged. She slowed down. She fell into the moment and as a byproduct effortlessly bypassed her intelligence and accessed her genius.

It was when Menna returned home to Cambridge, England, that she actually remembered she had a project that was due. She had literally forgotten all about it. Oh yes, she said to herself, I have a book to write. Three weeks later it was complete. Happier Than She’s Ever Been was a great success. Each book she has written since has been easier and more successful than the one that came before.

When you push yourself to get somewhere, common wisdom says that you will accomplish great things. But what if stressing yourself to get to where you think you need to be is not a necessary component to being successful? There is only one of you on a planet of billions of people. You already are a success.

HOW TO WRITE A PROFESSIONAL-LEVEL BOOK THAT WILL SELL By Hemda Mizrahi & Janet Spencer King

Independent book editor and publishing expert Janet Spencer King  joined me on “Turn the Page” to discuss how to become a published author.”

In this post, Janet offers additional advice to help make your book a success!

WILL MY BOOK BE A SUCCESS?
Janet shares, “Just about every client I have ever had asks me the Big Question: “Will my book be a success?” No one can answer this question upfront; there simply isn’t a way to determine if a book—however good it is—will do well. However, there are several factors to keep in mind when you decide to write and publish your book.

Fiction writers need to keep writing! Most first-time fiction authors can’t expect to sell many books. But we fiction readers are a greedy bunch—when we find an author whose work we like, we want more. Authors who hang in there, writing another and yet another novel, have a much better chance of being discovered. It may not be until the third or even fourth book, but once success starts creeping in, readers are apt to go back to purchase your previous titles. The beauty of being a self-published writer is that your books live on in perpetuity unlike traditionally published ones, most of which are pulled off the market well within the first year.

Many non-fiction writers have the advantage of an existing platform that will help sell their book. Given that non-fiction is often based on a successful business, or expertise in particular areas, these authors may already be doing presentations, holding workshops, and in other ways meeting people who are in their reader niche.

Read books in your genre that are currently popular—you’ll find out how to handle many areas in your own book by learning what other authors did. Go to writers’ conferences as often as possible. You will learn lots more about writing and meet editors and agents. Google lists conferences around the country according to region and genre.”

CRAFTING YOUR WEBSITE URL
“All writers, whether fiction or non-fiction must have a web site! I advise using a URL with your name plus the word “author.” For example, www.spencerkingauthorservices.com . The reason is that your site now welcomes your next book and your next. Using one book’s title locks you into one book only. Non-fiction authors might want to link their expertise to their name in the URL.”

PRICING E-BOOKS
“Many traditional publishing houses are setting e-book prices nearly as high as print books, but self-published authors are free to set their own. I advise no higher than $9.99 and as low as $6.99 for smaller books. Amazon pays 70% royalties on sales of e-books priced between $2.99 and $9.99, and 35% on books that are priced higher than $9.99. The price on your e-book must be at least 20% lower than the print book in order for you to get the 70% rate.”

WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO OWN YOUR BOOK’S ISBN
“You must own your book’s ISBN! It tracks all information including the publisher (you!), sales and revenue. The ISBN cannot be transferred; once purchased by someone, it remains with that entity and you’ll want it to be you. In the US, purchase of ISBNs are through Bowker.com, one number or a packet of ten. I suggest purchasing a packet since you can use it for e-books and other future books.”

RECOMMENDED RESOURCES
Janet recommends, “The Novel-Maker’s Handbook” by Diane O’Connell (Station Square Media), and “Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors & Literary Agents,” by Jeff Herman (New World Library).

Listen to our conversation for guidance on navigating the options of traditional and self-publishing, and more tips on writing a professional-level book that will sell!
