How Typical Freelance Websites Work

A client places an order

You and other freelancers start competing to secure the order.

If you are yet to establish yourself, unless you drastically undercut others, the order is unlikely to be assigned to you.

If you are lucky enough to get an order, the information given by the client might still be inadequate to complete it.

You then send the completed work and await feedback from the client.

If the client isn’t satisfied with the work; they may demand that substantial changes are made, threatening to leave negative feedback if you don’t adhere to their request.

Finally, you then have to wait for the client to approve the completed work before being paid.

AK Scoring System

Most freelance websites have a scoring system which is solely dictated by the customer, often leading to your account being sullied by feedback unfairly, this can subsequently lower your overall score and drastically influence your ability to get work.

Here at Academic Knowledge, we feel this isn’t a fair way of reading a writer’s ability; instead, your score is assessed objectively by our in-house experts. There are three main sections to our scoring system: Punctuality, Quality and Helpfulness.

When Can I Expect The Most Work?

With the nature of our work being academic, we tend to be busy at the most typical times you would be when at University. In fact, we receive nearly 50% of all our orders during November, December, March and April. We are typically much quieter during the summer months, so this is the perfect opportunity to get away from your desk and enjoy the weather!

Is There A Minimum Amount Of Work I Need To Do?

The beauty of working for Academic Knowledge is that the role is freelance; this means that there’s no minimum amount of work to be completed within a set period, and we would never push work upon someone. We want the person completing the work to be engaged and interested in what they are doing. We find that the quality of work is always better from our writers if they are interested in the piece!
