This Problem is Coming Into Focus

Currently businesses painstakingly scour the internet to find photographers.

They may rely on word of mouth (but can you really count on that?).

I’ve even seen folks post on Facebook that they are looking for photographers or videographers. It's sad but true.

Craigslist has also been a great way to find creators for the past 20 years.

Well, "great" may be a bit of an overstatement.

The shortcomings to these solutions are that they are outdated and not seamless. They take time to find the right creator that fits your needs, in the location you are in at that time.

Who’s the Solution? Whoolias! Whoolias!

Whoolias is removing friction, bridging the trust gap, and bringing certainty for both sides of our marketplace (those who are looking for outstanding content and the photographers/videographers/influencers who are looking for great clients).

We are creating a space where clients can discover talented content creators to hire on-demand while giving creators the ability to show off their craft and work, enabling them to be hired.

More importantly, the creatives set their own price while Whoolias takes care of the payment and deliverables. With Whoolias, the creative will never have to worry about not getting paid for their work again.

Why We’ll Lead

Our success is being built in our innovative marketplace, which connects clients to photographers/videographers or influencers.

Our filtering options allow creatives to be discovered by their skill set, cost and location.

The client can message the creator, give the time, location and deliverables, then hire the creator.

Once the deliverables have been approved, the funds will be released to the creator.
