Writing dissertations for students who cannot be bothered to write their own might not be most people’s idea of a great job. However, if you are academically-minded and have a flare for compiling dissertations then this could actually be an incredibly lucrative way to earn some extra cash. There is certainly a huge demand for this kind of service. If you also happen to have a grasp of the British academic system as well as the American one, then your chances of success are considerably higher.
Here are some tips for beginners to help you get started:
It makes sense when looking for work that targets students to actually set out your stall in the student population. Clearly, there are still some sensitivities and ethical issues around this so you will need to be discreet. If you have existing contacts speak to them, and try and figure out the best approach. You may need to advertise your services as “Academic writing” rather than blatantly saying what you are offering.
There are an abundance of services of this nature online. In this instance I would suggest contacting several and seeing if they have any vacancies or openings for beginners. Yes, you might have to start off on a relatively low rate of pay initially but it is a great way of getting your foot in the door.
Word of mouth is probably the best way of getting work of this nature. If you are in your second or third year, then you should be ideally placed to secure work from under graduates just entering the system who may be scared out of their minds at the thought of producing their dissertation and may be eager for a service of this nature. Word of mouth, also gives confidence to the service user as they can be pretty much assured that you will do a good job.
Setting up a website is actually not that difficult to do. There are lots of free template services that you can utilise and having a website will definitely give you credibility that you will otherwise be lacking. This way you can set your own rates, and can also take online payments with relative ease. Increasing your online visibility is the best overall way of securing more sales in the long term.
