Kurs Online, a copywriting service that helps people get high-paying jobs with the right type of writing for the right job, has shuttered its doors.
The move is a blow to copywriters who said the service was more than a gig, but a blow that could have been avoided.
The company’s CEO, Michael C. Cavanagh, told the Wall Street Journal that the company was going out of business because the work it offered was not enough.
The company was founded in 2015 by Cavanah, who has previously worked for AOL, the Huffington Post and The Washington Post.
Cavinagh said he was in talks to start his own company with former employees.
He said the company didn’t have a specific end-game plan and would work on a new product in the future.
