Intro to Friends With Benefits

We’ve made it easy to be proactive; browse your connections for creatives you know directly or those that come recommended from your network. Shop through portfolios so you can see which creative’s style matches best with your project. Creatives must have a verified, U.S. based bank account, giving you peace of mind that quality is the top priority.

Studios Looking for Freelancers

If you are a Studio Manager or Producer and you are looking for a reliable freelancer, this is the perfect platform for you.

Find Creatives

We’ve made it easy to be proactive; browse your connections for creatives you know directly or those that come recommended from your network. Shop through portfolios so you can see which creative’s style matches best with your project. Creatives must have a verified, U.S. based bank account, giving you peace of mind that quality is the top priority.

Manage Project

We require full payment up front, but don’t worry, your funds are safe and have not been distributed. This step solidifies trust with the creative, showing that you are committed to the project from the beginning. We’ve built a management tool that helps you track communication, production, compensation, and scheduling.

Download Deliverables

The creative will upload the deliverables to a phase; we show you a preview in the event revisions are needed, but restrict downloading. Once you approve a deliverable, we make the files available for download. Simultaneously, the funds for that milestone are released to the creative.

The founders, Logan and Eric, conceptualized FWB on a rooftop bar in downtown Los Angeles, after a long day at work in the IT sector; ultimately, they wanted a way to bring the power back to the people, to remove the need to rely on other entities to create jobs for us, and to pursue passions that are inherent in us all.

Freelancing is tough; finding worthwhile projects, keeping track and managing those projects, getting paid what you’re worth and vice versa, paying for the quality you want and working with reputable artists or clients. There aren’t any set standards and you have to invest vast amounts of time and utilize multiple resources to conduct worthwhile business. We wanted to change that.

There is a big problem with valuation in the creative marketplace. With always chasing the cheapest route, the creative marketplace has been saturated with mediocre quality, inexperience and $5 jobs. This opens opportunities for workers in other countries, but subsequently closes them to the workers in the U.S. who can’t live on $5 a job. We solved that.

FWB’s mission is to support quality freelance work from the U.S. by requiring creatives to be located in the U.S. and have a verified U.S. bank account. To ensure quality results for both those doing the work and those receiving it, we make it so that a project must start at a minimum of $200. We’re here to provide a solution to the watered-down market places that offer little to no opportunity and take a large chunk from the work you did and time you invested, both in the project and perfecting your craft.

Come and join our movement to put an end to the jaded marketplaces polluting the web, 20% fees, and $5 jobs. Come and see how your friends can benefit you or how you can benefit your friends. The struggle is real…or at least it used to be.
