That feeling when you have a paper due and it’s literally the last thing on earth you want to do. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Well, believe it or not, it does to me! Recently I had to write a book review for my lit class and I was willing to do anything to avoid working on it. Especially because I hadn’t even seen that book yet. I did push myself to try and read it, you can trust me on that one. I got to the library, sat down and kept staring at the pages thinking about youtube vids, video games, you name it, but not the book. I was getting down to a wire. The review was now due in 3 days only and all that my draft consisted of was the title of the book.
Things weren’t shaping up too well, so I knew I had to seek help to finally get this book review done away with. After googling for the options that could get me out of this bind I stumbled upon a couple of websites that help writing essays. Some had very questionable quality, to say the least, and others cost WAY too much and were out of a student’s budget, so I kept browsing until Nerdify (gonerdify.com) caught my eye.
Basically, Nerdify is a service that sets you up with a freelancer or a nerd, as they call them, who will complete your task. The best part is that it’s super tech friendly. You can get in touch with them either by requesting a text, texting them directly or by sending a Facebook message. I opted for the textback option and they got back to me in under a minute. This was perfect for someone like me who is looking for a quick solution.
I kind of expected that requesting a book review would be a shot in the dark. But, to my surprise, after asking all the right questions Nerdify found the nerd for me really quickly. I’ve sent them a pic of what I needed along with date when I wanted it done, and they sent me a price. It was less than I anticipated, even though at this point I was kind of desperate and willing to pay pretty much anything just to get it done. Still, getting a detailed price explanation that they provided felt nice to have.
Nonetheless, like any advanced internet user, I was a little skeptical of the service. So I went through some of the reviews that I found online and had their customer service reps answer a bunch of my questions. Oh, and did I mention that I absolutely loved the fact that you get to talk to a real person and not a bot? Either way, they were super professional and totally eased my concerns. By this point the clock was seriously ticking, so I paid and finally felt relieved. I went out that night without being stressed out about my review. It was amazing.
I consider myself a decent writer. So when I got the finished book review from Nerdify my expectations were hard to match. I was actually really impressed. The report hit all my requirements and sounded exactly like something I would write, I mean almost, if I had read the book, duh.
Overall, my experience with Nerdify was awesome. The review got me an A- and it didn’t cost as much as I thought. A day full of stress turned into a night out with my friends.
Here are a few cons (you guys know that I think there is always room for improvement):
- There’s no real perks to be a loyal member. Tell me who doesn’t like perks?
- There is no referral program, or I wasn’t informed about it. I love recommending good services, especially if that gives bonuses!
I can’t wait to read your comments, guys. What do you think about Nerdify? Have you used it? Maybe some of you have tried similar services?
