2,790 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
Editor's Note: Apologies, everyone. Due to an illness, we've had to reschedule the first event to Wednesday, April 10th at 3pm EDT. I hope you'll still be able to join us.
In April, Crowdsourcing.org is teaming up with Lionbridge and the Sourcing Interests Group to explore just how far the crowd can go when it comes to getting work done.
Lionbridge has established itself has one of the leaders in the rapidly emerging field of enterprise crowdsourcing, with experience that dates back to even before the term was coined. Today it's one of the few public companies in the crowdsourcing world that is also driving the industry forward with a focus on managed crowds and on quality.
- The Crowd in the Cloud: Exploring the Future of Outsourcing (White paper)
- Big Data Processing with Enterprise Crowdsourcing (Solution Brief)
- Enterprise Crowdsourcing in Action (Request a demo)
- One-on-one With an Enterprise Crowsourcing Expert
That focus on quality isn't just something that some marketers somewhere thought sounded good, either.
Over the past few months our team has had a number of conversations with the folks at Lionbridge about how they're working to raise the bar for the industry, and what they've been able to do is compelling to say the least. Imagine a crowd-based solution secure enough to handle tax returns and other sensitive data and flexible enough to get work done around the clock.
That powerful combination is just one way that high-quality, managed crowdsourcing models like what Lionbridge offers are changing how we think about project management and outsourcing.
I encourage you to join Crowdsourcing.org and Lionbridge for two special events this month to get up to speed on the role of managed crowdsourcing in the enterprise.
First, please plan to attend a live Google+ Hangout on the Air (also live-streaming on our YouTube channel) this Wednesday, April 10th at 3:00 pm Eastern / 12:00 pm Pacific / 9:00 pm UTC. Dori Albert of Lionbridge will join me for a conversation that will cover the basics of managed crowdsourcing and the emergence of higher value, higher-quality crowdsourcing.
Please send questions in advance of this live event by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or via Twitter using the hashtag #SmarterCrowd, our Crowdsourcing community on Google+, and our Facebook page.
Then, with that primer under your belt, plan to take a deeper dive into this new world of enterprise crowdsourcing by registering for a special webinar on April 17 at 2 p.m. EST with Lionbridge's Albert, Dawn Evans, CEO of Sourcing Interests Group, and Carl Esposti, CEO and Founder of Crowdsourcing.org and massolution.
The webinar offers a more in-depth look at the advantages of this model over traditional sourcing models, strategies for applying it to your enterprise, and the critical factors for managing a successful engagement.
We look forward to seeing you at both events. Please leave comments below, and don't forget that questions for the Google+ Hangout go to Twitter using the hashtag #SmarterCrowd, our Crowdsourcing community on Google+ or our Facebook page.
