If you’ve started a business or are planning to start one, you know that there are some things you just can’t do alone. Fortunately, you can now hire high quality help from Black and minority professionals with ease on Belancing — a new digital freelancing platform.
Often, when Black entrepreneurs start businesses with a desire to circulate wealth within our community, some find it difficult to find Black vendors for each of their business needs. From manufacturing to web design, finding other Black vendors and freelancers for your business can turn into its own full-time pursuit. Belancing is filling this gap by providing a Black-owned and Black-centered alternative to other gig work and freelance sites.
Belancing has committed itself to making the site easy to use and lowering the risk for those purchasing services. The professionals on Belancing are vetted for quality and payment for work is not released until the client is satisfied. On the freelancer’s side, Belancing’s fees are some of the most reasonable in the industry — allowing you to earn more money while getting more clients for your business.
The site also features a notification system, so freelancers and job posters don’t need to stay glued to the site, refreshing the page to review the latest bid or interact with a client or freelancer.
Belancing.com was created by tech industry veteran Rasool Muttalib who created the platform after noticing that people in his network were constantly asking him for referrals for Black digital freelancers.
“When it comes to hiring a Black business, some people think of it as a charity or a chore. This is a way that you can find qualified professionals that are Black and can get the work done,” Muttalib said.
According to Muttalib, the response to the site’s launch has been overwhelmingly positive. He encourages freelancers and even people with full time jobs to sign up today.
“If you have a business you should also be on the platform. Freelancers can use the platform to get more clients and get more revenue into their business. Even people with full-time jobs can join as a side hustle. It’s a great way to stack money to fall back on.”
