When on the lookout for a service provider, people used to rely on referrals before. Likewise, artists, practitioners, professionals, and entrepreneurs had to depend on word-of-mouth to attract potential customers, gain a solid following, and make a name for themselves. However, with the advent of the digital space, the commercial space, along with other industries, has now transitioned from traditional methods to online-based approaches. Wielding the power of digital technology, Utalan has emerged as a premier booking platform that makes it easy for anyone to reach out and connect with the most trusted authorities in the creative field.
Highly driven by the goal to establish a space where individuals will have no difficulties with booking and finding creators to work with on any project, Utalan is spearheaded by three powerhouses whose dedication toward the company’s mission has enabled this Utalan to rise through the ranks. Under the leadership of Yves Bagaza and Manan Zakari and thanks to the contributions of Casey Millet, it is on track to securing a spot in the competitive entrepreneurial realm.
As a digital booking platform for creators such as models, influencers, musical artists, photographers, videographers, dancers, and public figures, Utalan was established as a result of its founders’ astute observation about the concerning rise of scam bookings. “Many people are finding it difficult to get a hold of a safe platform to book and manage all their events and shows,” expounds this fast-growing venture. In response, it went all-out in bridging the numerous gaps in the market, and today, it has grown into one of the world’s largest platforms for independent work with its network spanning millions of buyers and sellers.
From the get-go, Utalan has challenged orthodoxies, reinventing the booking platforms that once dominated the industry. At its core rests an emphasis on putting its customers first and investing time and resources into making sure that anyone who has put their trust in the company gets to enjoy the comfort and assurance of their funds being protected. “We will optimize for the happiness and loyalty of our customers rather than marginal trip or transaction growth. We value our clients’ privacy, going the extra mile to guarantee that their personal information will not be shared with any third party,” adds the strategic minds behind this leading authority.
Shortly after its establishment, Utalan managed to take center stage not only for facilitating ease when it comes to booking. Above anything else, it is its commitment to keeping people’s privacy that allowed the venture to establish trust and build a relationship with its customers.
Currently, Utalan, available on both iOS and Android app stores, boasts three main features: profile, job/casting, and tour. By signing up with a creator profile, users of this platform get to display their social media, pictures, and videos, as well as the services they are offering. Through the job/casting feature, casting directors can post a casting call or a job, and creators who match the description the job is looking for will receive notifications urging them to apply to a specific casting. On the other hand, the tour feature is designed for creators, such as artists and public figures, who tour different cities, towns, or countries.
Armed with the mission of empowering creators with the tools they need to monetize their craft and talents, Utalan is set to serve countless more individuals through its top-notch platform. As it continues making waves in the industry, it aims to eventually create a global talents marketplace where it is easy, simple, fast, and safe to book and work with different creators.
