Top 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators 2022

Join a Creator
Commerce Company

We started as an influencer marketing agency but have expanded what we offer creators, social platforms, and brands. Today, we work closely with large brands (like Amazon, Google, Philips, MAC Cosmetics, Spotify, and TikTok, among many others) to connect them with brilliant creative talent and all of the social platforms to reach people worldwide. Since many people spend more time on social media, this is a modern way to raise awareness through strong brand partnerships (like advertising without interruption).

We are a creator-first company, and we are passionate about building opportunities for artists, writers, dancers, poets, and anyone with an ambition to join the creator economy. We connect these new voices to brands and platforms that want to source content and ideas from the communities they most want to engage.

The Creator Economy is BOOMING

Today, audiences find the content they love in new places, uncontrolled by major media companies. Individual “creators” are now writers, comedians,  musicians, dancers, filmmakers, and publishers. Whether their content lives on Instagram, Snap, TikTok, Twitch, or YouTube – they are taking a greater and greater share of time and attention away from traditional content providers.

More Than 50 Million People Globally Consider Themselves Content Creators, and The Market Size Has Grown to Well Over $104 Billion.

According to recent Consumer Technology Association and YouGov research: Online creator content now accounts for 39% of weekly viewing time. In 2021, 92% of consumers trusted creators more than friends, family, and celebrities – up from 38% in 2018.

We Embrace a Diverse Workplace

Diversity is a critical part of our success and a continuous process of reflection and improvement. It is not a new initiative for our team or creators but a core value since our founding. We believe in liberating all creative voices and ensuring we represent and are inclusive of all talent. We see this as an opportunity to raise the collective consciousness and ensure that Whalar supports new voices and points of view.
