In given article I will result Elizabeth Ionovoj's story (Omsk):
"One and a half years ago at me in a family it was very heavy with money (consequences on August, 17th, 1998). And that there was money at least for a dinner, I have dared" to sell the knowledge ". Has hanged out in university corridors in which I study, announcements that I carry out essays on history, philosophy and so forth (4 subjects). After a while has received the first order. I at all did not have an experience to appoint terms, the price, etc. (when something you do for yourself - you start with absolutely other criteria). In a word, I have appointed the price scanty, and terms - small. All the same was in time. After delivery of work week has spent in disturbing expectation. Claims was not. Next half-year the list of subjects has extended. Clients became more (someone simply transferred my phone to friends), moreover and old approached. Last half-year I have already involved for performance of this work some the acquaintances. Work heavy, and money small, but sensation of that you to itself the owner, costs that. And approximately one thousand in presessional month - not superfluous. While I will study - (there were 1,5 years) - I will continue to "bungle", but all the same I think then to transfer this business of the expanded network of executors, and most to work on other speciality. Here and all my experience. I think, it is quite good - in December, 1998 I was engaged in it one, and in December, 1999 - 7 persons. "Price-list" has expanded several times in comparison with initial (I mean quantity of rendered services).
Now into the price-list enter:
· Essays, control, seminars, course in subjects:
- Cultural science
- Political science
- Political science
- Computer science
- Natural sciences
- Physical culture (Such too happen)
- Bases of the economic theory
- History of economic doctrines
- Programming (from laboratory to the diploma)
· Transfers: from English language
· Typewritten works: the Set of one sheet (14 font, an one-and-a-half interval) - 4 roubles. The press (separately from a set - 3 roubles). The press under condition of that I typed too - 2 roubles. Total the sheet typed and printed with me - 6 roubles.
The prices which I establish for essays - 80 roubles for 20 pages, 70 roubles - for 15 pages (cost includes work listing). In price session increase. But in general the theme, terms and volume is looked.
If a theme non-standard the price increases by 20 %.
Normal terms of performance - 5-7 days. If the client needs to perform work faster the price increases by 20 %.
On volume I start with the bottom lath of the price.
Material I find in lectures, books. There is a recommended literature, and is simple enough, having lists of recently arrived or left literature on this theme to find an additional or basic material.
Perhaps, I will leave with it in Internet therefore as all workings out personally mine and ready works from Fidonet and Internet I do not use (ethics does not allow).
In what my project in Internet consists? In effect it is similar on existing, difference only that it will be commercial in that part which concerns ready works, roughly is supposed literature selection on widespread themes and some other things. I think, it will be interesting not only me. Benefit? Whether see, in Internet, despite a seeming abundance of essays (free!), those have not enough. And highly specialised themes to find difficultly. One my acquaintance who too "trades" in this kind of works, has made to itself an anti-advertising that image that took similar themes from a network and gave to the client (for the inquiry: for the same money, that I take for new working out). Some times teachers returned works. I also count on these highly specialised themes. The price in this case will not include the press. But while I yet did not realise idea of own site. Is a business of the future. "
Let's wish success Elizabeth Ionovoj in its present activity and in realisation of its future project in Internet.
