Cheap essay writing companies: are they any good?

This is not an easy question to answer. The problem lies in the definition of the word good. What do we mean by 'good essay'? It is very easy to find and do business with a cheap essay writing company. They are all over the Internet. Their prices arguably are their most attractive feature. But we come back to the old adage that 'you get what you pay for'. Here are some aspects of a cheap essay.

  • it may not be plagiarism free
  • it may have been sold many times before
  • it probably has been written by someone who doesn't have English as their first language
  • it will probably not have the correct citation of references
  • it will probably not adhere to the correct formula or layout
  • it may be poorly written
  • it probably will receive a low grade or even a fail

So are you still interested in doing business with a cheap essay writing company? If you are really stuck for funds then you may have no choice. But it is very important that you do not enter into any agreement with your eyes closed. All the points above may well apply to the essay you receive. Some would argue that any essay is better than none because at least you have something to submit. Others would argue that you are shooting yourself in the foot by submitting an essay which clearly does not meet the required standard.

You could of course take the cheap essay you purchase and rewrite it. You could improve the writing style and content and correct any mistakes you find in the essay. But all that takes time and if the main reason for you purchasing an essay in the first place is that you don't have time to complete one, then why buy an essay at all?

So the answer to the question about cheap essay writing companies is that you will need to do your homework. If you are after the best quality possible essay, one which is plagiarism free, follow the formula required by your college and buy an essay which is well written by a native English speaker. If you do then visiting a cheap essay writing company is probably a waste of time. If you do make a purchase from such a company, at least do so knowing all the facts.

When you weigh it up, you might be better off either writing the essay yourself or spending more money and buying a better quality product.
