Make Money Online through Academic writing

Academic writing is the controversial type of writing in which you get paid to complete school work for high school, college and university students.

Students who need help writing their academic work have the money but they may be busy, lazy, or ignorant of want they are supposed to do.

On the other hand, freelance writers need the money and they have the acumen to easily research and complete the assignment.

 

Who are the clients of academic writing jobs?

Busy students who have families to care for and jobs to attend to:  They value doing other stuff than doing school work. They decide to outsource their academic assignments in order to focus on making money, caring for their families, having fun or attending to other things.

Lazy students who don’t want to tire their brains with research and writing: They simply outsource it to somebody, the writer, to work it out. They don’t care about money or if the writer doesn’t sleep, they just want the assignment completed.

Non-native students studying in English-speaking countries but whose native language is not English: They get a hard time comprehending stuff, let alone completing assignments. Such students will gladly pay academic writers to complete college assignments on their behalf.

Others: Sometimes, lecturers and professors also order class notes and other teaching materials since freelance academic writers are known for their rigorous research skills.

 

Client – Academic Writing Company – Writer Relationships

Since such students don’t know writers at a personal level, and they don’t want the public to know that they cannot handle school assignments on their own, they seek assistance from academic writing companies.

Writers on the other end register with academic writing companies and complete the academic work without knowing the student.

Strict confidence is important here. Academic writing companies assure their customers of non-disclosure of personal details.

The writer is not supposed to exchange contact with the client, otherwise, the writer may blackmail the client or the academic writing company may lose its clients.

 

Types of academic writing jobs

The main types of academic work available in academic writing websites include: essays, annotated bibliographies, articles, course work assignments, curriculum vitae, dissertations, editing, reviews, essay editing, solving mathematical questions, essay review, formatting, lab reports, multiple choice questions, personal statements, power point presentations, proofreading, reaction paper writing, research proposals, copy-writing, resume editing, scholarship essays, speech presentations, statistics projects, term papers, thesis proposals and answering tricky questions.

 

Level of writing in most academic writing websites

Academic writing involves completing simple high school assignments, college level academic work, university stuff and immense masters and PhD dissertations.

Completing one 100 page dissertation at say $4,000, for instance can feed you for a whole month or a couple of months depending on your exchange rates, your expenditure and economic situation.

Sounds interesting?

One thing you have to realise, academic writing has rules, it is not simple.

 

Advantages and disadvantages of academic writing

Advantages of academic writing jobs

The academic writer gets a job; that is creation of employment

Academic writing agencies benefit from this

Some of academic writing jobs are better paying jobs than normal 8-5 jobs

The writer develops research skills and faster typing skills which can be used elsewhere

 

Disadvantages of academic writing jobs

Some people call it cheating, others call it plagiarism and others refer to it as academic dishonesty. However, when a student hires a private tutor for tuition, they call it good names.

The writer cannot advance the writing expertise, they write various types of content, no specialisation but they just chase money.

Academic work, unlike an article like this can only be used once. The writer may find it hard to resell the work; it will be plagiarised and unusable.

Every academic work comes bundled with very strict grammar, punctuation, and referencing instructions. You will have to work hard to deliver quality content; it is like you are still in school, trying to complete a tough assignment in limited time!

Academic writing is seasonal; when students go for long summer holidays, academic writing experiences what geeks normally call the low season – you become very broke unless you diversify.

 

How to Open Academic Writing Accounts

You already know that you must know English, or the language in which you want to write.

Create a nice and professional curriculum vitae

Create an email meant for opening academic writing accounts or looking for jobs online

Scan your national identity card in high resolution (You can take a nice snapshot, it works)

Scan your degree certificate or whichever certificate you have in high resolution

Take your time to read about plagiarism and how to avoid it. Plagiarism cannot be tolerated in any type of writing. You shall come to know that plagiarism is the wrongful use of somebody’s work, oral, written or in any other form, without proper acknowledgement of the original source. For instance, when you are researching online, you cannot just copy and paste somebody’s work and pretend you have written it. You have to read, synthesise it and express it in your own words – that is a simple way of avoiding plagiarism. There are many software out there, ready to catch you submitting plagiarised work.

If you submit plagiarised work, you shall not be paid, your account shall be suspended or closed, and whatever you could have worked for may be frozen! That is how scary plagiarism is.

Take your time to learn how to write various types of content. For instance, how to write research papers, essays, dissertations, coursework, theses, dissertations etc.

Learn various academic writing styles; APA, MLA, Harvard, Turabian, Chicago, Vancouver, Oxford. Normally, there is nothing hard about these. The most important thing is to know how to write the content. The styles come in when formatting the page headings, in-text citations, bibliography and reference pages, foot notes and endnotes, indentation and such nitty gritties.

Prepare a few sample papers. One thing you have to know about writing, you have to show the world that you can write. Now listen to this. Choose a nice topic which you are conversant with and write a killer sample using any of the academic writing styles.

It will be nice to familiarize yourself with the formatting and citation styles for each writing style on your own.

Create templates for each academic writing style. You can ask for free academic writing templates from any freelance academic writer, or even me.

Have a bank account and sign up for other types of receiving online payments. Make sure you can receive payments online.

Visit the websites of the academic writing companies and sign up. Some companies have specific times of accepting applications.

Keep applying and you shall get accepted.

Be sure to have a stable internet connection. Most companies require you to complete a time-framed English grammar test and writing test to test your proficiency.

I wish you success. Tell us what you find out. Sharing is caring.

 

How to distinguish genuine academic writing companies from scams

Join academic writer’s Facebook groups, Google communities or LinkedIn groups or any other forum and inquire

Read testimonials from other writers, you are not the first writer to work with them

Look for social proof of the writing companies: most scams rarely have any social media handles
