Having excellent writing skills and passion for writing, Chandana Chaudhuri has started her freelance writing career with Contentmart.com. With a rating of 4.69 stars, she has successfully completed 61 orders. Alongside, within a short duration, she has listed her name in the verified writers of Contentmart because of her good work and efforts. Let’s have a look at her journey with us in her own words.
I always felt that I had an aptitude for writing but never had an appropriate avenue to assess or nurture it. Having worked as an Operation Manager for more than 13 years with multinationals, I was over and done with the mundane roles and wanted to give wings to my creative facet….well, literally! It was around this time that my sister, who is a content writer herself, introduced me to Contentmart.
To start with, the unusual name tickled my curiosity. I browsed the Contentmart website to figure out what it was all about and there it was – explained lucidly in plain and simple terms – a platform to connect content seekers with quality content writers. Now that the motto was quite clear to me, I wasted no time and quickly registered a profile for myself towards the end of June’16. The registration process was quite seamless and hassle-free. Next step was to upload few samples and clear the language proficiency test. It was fun working through the various competency levels to achieve an ‘Advanced’ rating for language expertise. I was a bit sceptical though to upload my personal details like PAN Number, bank details etc. Nevertheless, I decided to trust the site and give it a go.
As one can imagine, it is always a mammoth task to break the ice when you are a beginner. I thought that it would be a tough ask initially to convince prospects to trust me with their projects and valuable money. To my pleasant surprise, one of the Contentmart members awarded me my first project the very next day of my enrolment. I was over the moon and gave my best efforts to deliver as per the requirement. I did face initial hiccups as the order went to and fro few times and I almost felt at one point of time that the order would get declined. However, my client was patient enough and the order eventually got accepted and I got paid for my efforts. Since then there has been no looking back.
It’s been almost 4 months now since I started my journey with Contentment and it has been quite fruitful so far. I have come across myriad of clients and various types of orders on any possible genre that one can think of. Every client has been unique and has enriched me in the process…something that I will always cherish. What I love the most about Contentmart is that it allows me the flexibility to manage my time effectively and also exposes me to diverse themes and writing styles. Trust me when I say that you will not be bored as there is so much to write on and write about! The robust site has a strong moderator check, an inbuilt plagiarism checker and a flawless chat option – effective mechanisms to make the communication and delivery process seamless and rewarding.
The site has undergone massive upgrade recently with more focus invested towards safeguarding the writer’s interests. Immediate payment blocking at client end post awarding an order, automatic payment release after 5 days of incommunicado at client’s end, sharing proposal text in a non-editable PDF format till the time the proposal is accepted by the client, friendly support team (I actually know all of them by names now!) and an effective grievance addressal process – all are in the right direction to ensure that the writer is aptly compensated for his or her effort. The site has a well-defined notification option that enables you to be on top of every activity pertaining to your portfolio. Apart from the money, I eagerly look forward to the client reviews as they boost my confidence and help me realise what I need to work on to improve myself. A 5 star rating is a personal high that no monetary compensation can match. Likewise, fostering long-term client associations and having personal orders created exclusively for you is immensely gratifying.
As a professional, I am known to take calculated risks and I can personally vouch for Contentmart from my personal experience. Few things that have worked for me till date have been maintaining integrity and honesty in my work, appreciating and echoing a client’s trust and faith in me, never compromising on quality by quoting a sub-standard price, adhering to deadline commitments, keeping communication channels free and open, respecting and valuing every client relationship and appreciating the fact that no two clients are similar – hence, wants are also unique.
I have spoken enough…time for you to experience this marvellous initiative called Contentmart. Eager to see the next write up from you on your experience with this platform…Happy Writing!
