Crowdsourced Video Creation: Poptent to invest $1m in Brazil
Crowd Creativity

The discrete landing of PopTent in Brazil last month was an indication of a long-term strategy to conquer the large South American market. From the clear and simple room located at the elegant area of Jardins, Sao Paulo, the two co-managing directors of PopTent Brazil, John deTar and Peter Lau, are planning investments in the region of $ 1 million over the next six months. A considerable amount for a company specializing in crowdsourced video production company, even for one whose client list boasts a string of Fortune 500 brands and top agencies. Poptent specialize in producing commercials and other video assets through a social network of more than 35,000 videographers in over 120 countries.

The decision to set-up shop in Brazil was a made in 2010, over a bottle of beer, during a meeting of Poptent’s board and has been almost one year in the planning. It’s not that Poptent takes big decisions lightly, in fact, the beer memorialized the fact that Poptent had enjoyed success with one of it’s large clients, Anheuser-Busch InBev, the leading global brewer well known for its popular American brand, Budweiser. After the huge success of the Dude campaign in United States, they decided to test the model in Brazil, where AB InBev owns the brand Skol, the leading beer in the Brazilian market and the world's third-best selling brand. This was the force behind the creation of Poptent Brazil.

5 Tips for Crowdsourcing Advertising for Small Businesses
Crowd Creativity, Tools

There has never been a better time to be a small business looking to market itself. Traditionally, one of the biggest struggles for small businesses has been running cost effective advertising campaigns. Having the budget and expertise to create a high quality logo, develop effective ad copy, identify the proper advertising channels, etc. has been out of reach for most small businesses. The result was that small businesses either opted out of advertising altogether, which caused them to miss the opportunity to market to a large target market, or they wasted money running ad campaigns that were ineffective.


The advent of crowdsourcing is changing the face of advertising for small businesses. Businesses owners now have the ability to tap into a huge talent pool that has the time and expertise to help them create and manage sophisticated and profitable advertising campaigns.
