But then the homework help firm , which is also a market leader in online tutoring , sought mass market frame for it brand of anytime answers turned to free online tutoring to widen its reach and diversify the profile of its users. However, the growing clutter in the homework help category
Could prove to be its biggest challenge.
There are close to 100 homework help websites worldwide currently and almost all these companies are planning on free tutoring to lure students online. For an audience who is mostly focused on email based assignment help, such an offer is not only confusing but can even be a deterrent to online academic users. Besides Homework Guru’s growth thus far has been fuelled by its huge tutor base and smart alliance with various universities for a sizeable portion of student base.
Homework Guru’s Brand Plan

These companies do lack the resource infrastructure Homework Guru has, but since the online market is very dynamic they are expected to attract more students in the coming year.
