Enter The “We-Pool” Concept
A combination of two words, “We” and “Pool”, Wepool means collaboration through the pooling together of lean and experienced digital and technological resources. Our humble outfit was formed with one vision in mind. Let’s freely enjoy what we do first and foremost, and the tasks we perform will be a reflection of our first love.
We’re a pool of experienced industry professionals who are passionate about product building, app development, art, design, music, and a whole lot of seemingly un-related creative passions (e.g., barista, wedding planning, jewelry making, game production, wresting, etc.). And we’re pursuing our first love unstopped by the need to fulfill a 9 to 5 office job. We’ll tell you why this is absolutely CRUCIAL to great work in a second…
Wepool’s 80/20 Pareto Rule
In an ordinary agency, you get employees who spend 80% of their lives (and after hours) doing work they’re commissioned to do, usually across several accounts. If they’re lucky and office doesn’t call them back to OT, 20% of their remaining lives will be spent on hobbies they love – doodling, blogging, cooking, inventing the next big app, jamming, etc.
This condition begs a question: Do these employees really give you their best creative work, or are they doing it because they HAVE to? Are they seriously giving you their “energy mains” or feeding you with the remaining scraps? Are they hankering to win creative awards or striving to get you more business leads?
Now what if we turned this concept around 360 degrees? What if we said all of our Wepoolers are seriously happy people working on creative projects they love, and they would be just as happy contributing their constantly-refreshed creative juices to you for a fraction of the cost? We dare say, the results could be equal (if not better) than what you would ordinarily expect from an agency.
Why Pay An Arm & A Leg
Why are agency costs so expensive? That’s partially because you’re paying for the rent that houses dozens of employees, and you’re helping feed larger establishments with its plethora of career roles and unfathomable titles: Chief Happiness Accounts Officer, Digital Strategist Superintendent, Director of Community & Social Relations, etc.
Are you really getting what you’re paying for? At Wepool, we’ve sourced together some of the best UI/UX designers, copywriters, social media writers, SEO experts, and tech developers who are specialists in their own field. They don’t come with big titles. Designer is designer, writer is writer, developer is developer. You get equally great, if not better work, without jacked-up middlemen costs.
‘Freedom’ Is The Best Way To Work!
Because we’re free to come and go and not tied down to an office, we can meet on Skype at 9:30PM, brief each other via email, update each other on Whatsapp, collaborate on Google drive, share files on the cloud. Neither time, distance nor public holidays is a factor in our world, as it never is to startups, which form the bulk of our clients! The world has changed and opportunities favour those who are out there setting the parameters, not being bogged down by them.
