Students will have little interest in HireWriters.com, primarily because the company focuses on matching customers in need of copywriting with freelance copywriters. Still, we have conducted our HireWriters.com review as we would with any service that offers writing. We have attempted to find HireWriters reviews on the web and were moderately successful. There are no HireWriters testimonials on the site. To get a better “handle” on the quality of writing and services, we ordered a 500-word blog post. The following summary is what we have found.
Step 1: About HireWriters.com
The site and the vast majority of content on the site relates to writers – how they can register and begin writing articles. For potential customers, there is a short video and a listing of the types of writing those customers can order. The products and services include:
What we discovered through our Hire Writers review is that customers create accounts and then place orders. Those orders are placed on a job board for writers then to select and fulfill.
Step 2: Quality of Products and Services
It is impossible to determine quality by samples, because there are none, unless a writer posts an example on his/her profile. There is a modified bidding process based upon a writer category selection.
There are 4 categories of writers – Beginner, Average, Skilled and Expert. A customer selects a category and only those writers in that category then bid. The customer understands that the higher the category the better writing s/he will receive.
HireWriters.com reviews on the web are not positive. Many complain that their writers were obviously ESL, and there were many grammatical and composition errors. This while the company promises thousands of native English-speaking writers.
The blog post we ordered asked for an “Average” writer. It was, quite frankly, less than mediocre and, again, created by and ESL writer. We requested revisions, but little had improved. The writer was just not able to use proper English or to establish a coherent flow of points to be made.
Overall, while there is no Hire Writers scam going on here, we believe the company is clearly not fully honest in terms of its claims about writers. Perhaps this could be rectified if the company would have some quality control about who is allowed to register as a writer.
Step 3: Writers and Support
In order to become a writer for this company, an individual has a simple registration process. Education and background experience are not checked nor is it required for a writer to provide that information. Most, of course, do, but, without verification, it is easy for a writer to be dishonest.
In terms of customer support, it appears to exist more for the writers than it does for customers. There is a lot of information about how and when writers get paid and how they may progress from the “beginner” level through the other levels.
One big red flag is that there is only one way to communicate with the customer service department – via email. There is no phone number or live chat feature.
Step 4: Prices
HireWriters.com prices are published on charts by clicking on the “Prices” link. They range from $0.65 for a Facebook post to as high as $1250.00 for an e-book of about 5,000 words and completed by an “Expert” writer. These prices are not set in stone, however, because writers bid, and we assume that negotiations do take place.
Potential customers will find no HireWriters discount, no HireWritrs.com coupon codes for special pricing. And, even though the published prices are actually quite reasonable, even a HireWriters promo code will not fix issues of quality.
Step 5: Additional Features and Discounts
There are no additional features and discounts offered to customers. This would be rare in this type of business model. The business is conducted through negotiations between customers and writers.
The only customers for this writing company are web-based businesses who need copywriting services. While there are no student grades at stake, the quality, at least at the lower levels of writing categories, will not enhance the reputation of those businesses. Based upon all that we have learned and on Hire Writers ratings by customers, we cannot recommend this service.
