Happy New Year from EssayEdge!

By Ryan Hickey + updated on January 12th, 2011

We hope that 2010 treated you well and that 2011 is even better. As we move into the new year, I want to take a minute to draw your attention to some new additions to our company and website.


In the last quarter of 2010, EssayEdge presented a series of live webinars on various admissions and essay-related topics. Recordings of all six webinars are now available on our website and can be viewed for free by anyone. If you’re interested, check out http://www.essayedge.com/webinars

Webinar 1: Turning an Admissions Essay from Good to Great

Webinar 2: Supporting Your Applicant Without Taking Over (parent-focused)

Webinar 3: The Admissions Essay in Context

Webinar 4: MBA Admissions and the Set of Essays

Webinar 5: Squeezing it All Into a Short College Admissions Essay

Webinar 6: Nobody’s Perfect – How to Face Your Past Failures in an MBA Admissions Essay

We’ll be presenting more webinars starting in the second half of 2011.

Video Courses

EssayEdge is now proud to offer instructional video courses for applicants who aren’t sure how to begin the essay writing process. We’ve created a detailed, five-part video course in each of our five major markets to guide applicants all the way from prompt analysis and brainstorming to the final revision.

The video course includes hours of guidance for only $39.95. You can learn more and view a brief trailer at http://www.essayedge.com/business/video-course

Social Media

2010 saw EssayEdge begin to develop a presence on both Facebook and Twitter. We posted relevant articles, linked to new blog posts, and even offered occasional limited-time coupon codes for followers.

In 2011, we’ll be aggressively expanding our social media presence even further. So if you haven’t yet followed us on Twitter or liked us on Facebook, now’s a great time to start!
