contentmart

ContentMart, an online marketplace for business content writing, now offers their services in multiple regional languages including Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Marathi. Writers signing up on ContentMart can update their profile by choosing the languages in which they wish to write.

ContentMart requires writers to clear tests in the language they wish to add. The language proficiency will be updated on the writer’s profile only after clearing the test and writer can  start bidding on the orders posted by clients.

ContentMart was started in July 2015 by Creative WebMedia, which runs the automotive portals Autoportal.com and Bikeportal.in. ContentMart’s business model is similar to what Upwork (formerly oDesk) and Fiverr follow. The only difference being that while both these platforms connect businesses with a wide range of freelance professionals, ContentMart only works with content contributors.

How it works

– Clients can post their requirements, including a description of the project/assignment, maximum and minimum price range, and word limit. They can select the writer they want from among the bids received for that particular project. Once the assignment is submitted by a contributor, clients can review it, and after the approval process is complete, payment is released to the content writer.

– In case of writers, after registering with the platform they can view all live projects available and place bids for the ones they’re interested in. Once a client assigns a project to a writer, they need to complete it within the stipulated time period and submit.

– A minimum of Rs 3000 needs to accumulate in the writer’s ContentMart wallet for them to be able to withdraw the money. Once they place a withdrawal request, they’re are asked to submit their bank account details and the money is transferred to their account.

Charges

At the time of launch, ContentMart charged clients 14% service charge, as per revised service charge rates fixed by the government. There were no additional charges for clients. Writers were charged a 10% commission, which is deducted when they place a withdrawal request.
