What is the difference between essay banks and personalized essay service?

The traditional essay banks that still exist today are purveyors of pre-written essays that allow students to ramble through them and find an essay that they can use to benefit their studies. There are many problems associated with the use of essay banks, for instance not only do they seldom provide the relevant material to the student, but they are not unique and, therefore, they fail to culminate the required research for the customer.

This means that one would have to spend hours searching the essay banks (often having to purchase the right to view numerous essays), in order to achieve a reasonable amount of research to refer to. Not only is this extremely time consuming, but it could often prove very expensive, with students spending a great deal of time and money only to end up with more than few vague, poor quality essays to help them with their studies.

The many problems associated with essay banks led to birth of the custom essay sites. These sites set out to solve the problems common to essay banks by providing essays that are written to the customers’ question. This enabled students to purchase a model answer specific to their requirements without having to search the internet for hours.

This eventually had its adverse effects on the market, with many custom essay sites using this as an opportunity to use their custom essay service to build up their own essay banks, as well as using their existing essay banks to create custom research from.

Customers were essentially buying an often wholly plagiarised piece taken from, or soon to appear on an essay bank. They were essentially paying for a piece of research that would soon benefit other students, therefore taking away any competitive advantages that the model answer would have granted them.

The next phase was the innovative creation of the “personalised essay service”. These services provide a piece of research that is custom written to the exact requirements of the customer, with the opportunity to get acquainted with the example research papers, offering a guaranteed level such as a guaranteed First Class or 2:1 standard.

These custom research papers and essays are scanned for plagiarism, ensuring each piece of work is unique, furthermore, they will not appear on an essay bank or database for a fair period of time – 4 years or more, and will never be resold.
