Regardless of whether you’re a journalist, an academic, or any other “type” of writer, your paper can always benefit from a professional essay review. All too many of us have been misled time and time again into thinking that yes, we can best edit our own work, or even worse, place all of our trust into a computer program to do the work for us.
It’s true, professional editing services will cost you.
But not having a professional essay review done can cost you a lot more than a few bucks in the long run. Here’s how:
1) Not Following Essay Guidelines
Every school, every professor, and every publishing house has very specific and sometimes incredibly detailed instructions about how your essay needs to be formatted, laid out, and presented in order to be accepted. One little flaw and they’ll move right on ahead to the next essay that they have on their desk waiting to be discovered.
Guidelines can be intense and can place additional stress on writers that can actually affect the quality of your work. Why not free up your thoughts and trust someone else to do that work for you? Trust us—you’ll be glad you did.
2) Trusting Spell Check to Do the Job Right
Spell check definitely has its place and should be used before anyone hands their essay over to a professional essay review company. But your word processing software’s spelling and grammar check software shouldn’t be both the first and final step of the editing process. Professional editors look at so many other things, such as:
- Whether or not appropriate language and tone is being used
- That the information in your essay isn’t repetitive or unnecessary
- That the information presented flows nicely together
- That proper vocabulary, tenses, and sentence structure is used throughout your content
3) Flawed, Unproven, or Weak Arguments
You may think that you’re making a bold statement, but to a third party, the argument that you’re trying to make as well as the studies or research you’re using to back that argument is pretty weak or just completely unfounded. It may be a matter of how the facts are being presented, or maybe you are completely off the mark. Either way, a professional essay review will bring clarity and strength to your argument.
4) Being Generic
The last thing that you want your essay to be is bland and boring. A professional essay review will allow you to dig deeper into what you’re really trying to get at, look further into some points, and maybe even allow you to uncover something incredibly unique and never considered before. Many editors who have been in the editing game for a while will also be able to tell you if your piece of work is a piece of “been there, done that” or something that will outshine all the other essays.
So, we recommend you invest a little bit up front in a professional copy editor for your essay and you’ll be glad you did.
