Contentmart has shut down today on August 22, 2018. The digital marketing startup allowed companies/individuals to hire freelance content writers, announced earlier this month that they will be retiring their website today.

The Gurgaon-based Contentmart has shut down three years after it first launched into the market as India’s first content marketplace.

The company connected north of 103,000 writers with more than 110,000 international clients.

The company provided a similar service to clients like Upwork does and more recently like Fiverr too. The writers’ profiles were based on a series of tests that ranged from beginner to advance, which in turn helped the clients to choose the talent.

“It has been an interesting journey, but nothing is permanent. We regret that it came to this, but all our efforts to avoid it failed. Contentmart simply cannot remain in its current form. Hence, three years later, we are closing down the service and putting this era behind us as new challenges await,” Contentmart’s email to its members read.

Starting today, the company will delete all of the client and writer information from its servers permanently. The company encourages writers and clients to exchange contact to continue their trading offline.
