Building better opportunities through freelance writing
We have compiled some of the common questions we have received from our researchers.
Please take time to go through each question to further understand how our services
work. If you have any questions that are not found in this section, please feel
free to send us an email at
You can work from any location as long as you have access to a computer, the Internet
and text books and other research resources. We have writers from all locations
across the globe including the UK, Canada, Australia, and the USA.
The amount you will be paid will depend on the particular requirements of the brief.
The factors that affect your researcher fee are the level, length and the timescale
that the brief is required to be completed within. For an individual brief you could
earn anywhere between £50 and £1000+. Please see our current payment levels to know
more about Prospect Solution's freelance writer rates.
When new briefs are sent to you they will appear in the 'new jobs' section of your
An email will be sent to your registered email address notifying you of a new brief
in your researcher account. The email will detail information about the brief such
as the title, delivery period and fee.
New briefs are offered on a first come, first served basis. We generally keep bids
open for at least 1-2 hours after a new brief notification has been sent out. If
after this time we have selected a writer for the brief, the information about the
brief will automatically be deleted from your researcher account.
We will generally notify you the same day that you bid for the piece. However, it sometimes takes up to 72 hours before we can inform you of the status of your bid. Whether your bid is successful or not, you will receive an email to confirm this.
Since August 2006, we will only be sending new brief notifications between the hours of 9am to 10pm B.S.T. We are always looking at new ways to improve communication with our writers and we are looking at different systems such as SMS texts and mobile phone alerts.
You will simply invoice us for the work that you have completed in that month for us. You can receive payment either by Paypal or bank transfer at the end of the invoicing month.
We will offer you a variety different types of work that are in line with the subject
that you have graduated in. Therefore we could offer you for example, research writing,
proofreading work, or even editing. Most of the work you will be asked to complete
initially will be academic pieces, after you have worked with Prospect Solution
for some time and have submitted impressive briefs we may invite you to become a
permanent researcher with improved writer rates.
The simple answer is 'No'. You can choose the work that suits you. You are not obliged
to carry out any work which is offered to you. However when you accept work, this
will help attain a higher recognition and ranking in our system.
We always select the most suitable writer to complete a piece of work, therefore
if a writer is more qualified or has a greater understanding of the topic then he
or she will usually be chosen to complete a particular brief. We do encourage new
writers to get involved and we regularly offer new researcher's pieces over existing
These are the degree level standards that are used in the UK. A 1st standard typically
translates to 70%+, a 2:1 is 60%-70% and a 2:2 is 50%-60% out of 100.
Yes, this is generally the case. For example, if you graduated in Economics, then
we would only offer you work which is related to Economics or subjects that cross
over that for example finance. We may offer you work which is of general nature,
if it is not linked to a specific subject area.
You will receive an email confirmation from us within 72 hours of bidding to confirm
whether or not you have been chosen to complete the brief. If you are successful
then you will be required to begin work on the brief as soon as you receive confirmation.
Your chances of receiving work will depend on how quickly you can respond to our
'New Work' offers which will appear in your account section. We will also send new
work details to you via email.
After you have completed the piece and have made sure that it fulfils the original
criteria, you should submit the piece to us as either a Word document or an .rtf
(rich text format) file uploaded through your account.
In certain cases where a file is larger than 1Mb in size or you are completing a
piece of work such as programming, then you can return the completed brief via an
email attachment and send it to email@example.com (please remember to put the
brief number in the email title).
No. In order to assure our clients of quality custom-written and fully-original
work, we do not encourage the same researcher to undertake briefs with the same/similar
topic. However, if a researcher is 100% certain to be able to make a completely
different work (different style, different references, etc.), they should furnish
Prospect Solution an email stating a guarantee of producing a completely original
work. Only upon receipt of this email can Prospect Solution accept your bid for
the brief. In case we find any similarity of your work with your previous submissions,
Prospect Solution will rightfully give the client a full refund and inevitably,
zero payment to the writer.
This depends on several factors including the subject area you write in, the time
of year and also the quality of the pieces that you produce. If you constantly produce
good quality work and are reliable, you will be in a very favourable position to
receive regular work on a weekly basis. However if the work you produce for us is
sub-standard, then we will have to offer work to others above yourself. Generally
the more accessible and available you are, the more are the chances that you will
receive work on a regular basis.
Every piece that you receive from us should be written to the specified level, which
is highlighted in the original requirements that we send to you when you accept
the work. If the piece is indicated as a 2:1 piece then it should be written to
that standard. Again if the piece is a 1st degree standard piece we expect the piece
to be written to that standard. All the work should be fully referenced.
We have an in house quality control team who check each piece to make sure that
it meets the criteria that we have asked for. We especially check for work that
has been submitted by newer researchers to make sure that the quality we expect
is met. Prospect Solution holds a scoring system for all of our writers to make
sure of the ongoing quality of each researcher.
This is simple. We have fully integrated plagiarism software which checks all pieces
for any similarities and also searches every web page, essay banks, journals and
other sources. Although this system is expensive to operate it is important for
the integrity and ongoing success of our company to present our customers with all-original
and fully referenced pieces of research work.
You must let us know at the earliest point if you are having any trouble completing work on time. In any circumstances that work is returned late then you will be penalised. If you return the brief late without informing us, you will be automatically taken off our database. For your own advantage you must always complete the assigned work on time.
Briefs generally can be completed within 1 to 5 days; we also set projects that
may take several weeks or months to complete. If you receive a 5-day brief then
you must complete and return the piece on the 5th day before 4pm B.S.T. If the work
is handed back later than this time you will suffer penalties on your fee.
We normally only allow our researchers to complete assignments one at a time. However
since the deadlines of briefs often vary, we may ask you to work on two pieces at
the same time if both you and Prospect Solution feel that you are comfortable to
If you have other cross-over subjects that are relevant to your degree or you have
qualified for a new subject area then we would welcome your request to add this
to your account. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will review your request.
Since you are accepting the work on the condition that you can fulfil the writing
requirements, you are generally not allowed to make any amendments thereto. However
on the occasions that you do have to make an amendment to a piece, in most cases
we will notify you within seven days after the deadline with which the piece was
due. This is not seven days from the time you submit the piece if you return it
earlier than the hand in date. All amendments are mandatory and must be completed
within the time specified to you. (Please see the amendments
