Microsoft Bing will use 3D panoramas taken by the crowd
Crowd Creativity

Quite soon users of Microsoft’s search engine Bing will have access to 3D panoramas photos taken by the crowd and shared through Gigwalk’s mobile app. This great push towards a crowdsourced initiative was made possible as a result of an agreement between the giant Microsoft and Gigwalk, a company just nine weeks old, from Mountain View, CA. The agreement was announced this week.

Gigwalk mobile app instantly connects businesses to an on-demand, tech-savvy mobile workforce (Gigwalkers) who gets paid to use their iPhone to collect, capture and report real-world data -- such as verifying a street name, photographing a menu, reporting on red-light cameras, or confirming product placements in stores -- while going about their everyday activities. They called tasks Gigs.

"By combining Gigwalk's tech-savvy mobile force with our popular Photosynth app, we're able to add immersive panoramas to Bing local search results, so people can accurately see the details of a business such as a store or restaurant, " said David Gedye, lead program manager of Bing Mobile. "Gigwalk's network delivers high-quality results, often within 24 hours, and that's hard to beat," he added.

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.
