Crowdsourcing helps preserve Social Security and Medicare

In another landmark win for the crowdsourcing industry and GeniusRocket, crowdsourced vídeo production proves it’s a very real threat to the traditional big agency model for TV advertising production. In less than three weeks from the first meeting to premiering during NBC's "Meet the Press" on July 17th, GeniusRocket delivered a high quality production for a third of the typical cost.

With a straightforward and emotional message, Jam Session is the first advertising campaign launched by The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare  in more than a decade. It is a decisive action to save what they consider essential public programs as Congress debates dramatic spending cuts.

The National Committee selected GeniusRocket, the DC-based advertising firm, a Pioneer in the crowdsourcing space, in favor of competition from within the advertising industry. The National Committee were looking for an ad that would effectively broadcast their mission in a national television advertising campaign.

"We needed a process that could guarantee enough creative options for our ad without the high fees associated with a traditional ad agency," said Pamela Causey, Director of Communications for the National Committee.
