5 Creative Uses for Crowdsourcing
Is crowdsourcing dead? How creative crowdsourcing platforms evolve

When Jeff Howe coined the term crowdsourcing back in 2006, he defined it as  »the act of a company or institution taking a function once performed by employees and outsourcing it to an undefined (and generally large) network of people in the form of an open call » (this definition is still on Wikipedia). Today, other buzzwords like co-creation and open innovation flood the marketing and innovation blogs. To know what’s happening with crowdsourcing, let’s just take a look at how the platforms based on crowdsourcing principles evolve. Let’s take a look at different types of platforms using crowdsourcing principles : virtual ad agencies, creativity platforms and (still) the crowd-sourcers.

VIRTUAL AD AGENCIES


I recently found an interesting blog post about discussing well-known crowdsourcing websites. Peter La Motte, president of GeniusRocket, describes how his websites’ model is not an open crowdsouring platform anymore, but rather « an agency powered by the crowd «. This means that ideas and storyboards are crowdsourced, but they only go into production when the client has given feedback and approves the project. This is the main difference with open platforms like Poptent or eYeka, who are open platforms for various creative people who can choose which projects they want to participate in. Other virtual ad agencies include Victors&Spoils, founded by John Winsor (a review of his book Flipped here), and Tongal. I like Tongal’s video because it explains how the crowd is leveraged to select and refine ideas:

Brazil Hosts The First International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-Creation

A small gathering congregated in São Paulo this weekend, ahead of the first International Conference on Crowdsourcing, being hosted tomorrow at the offices of one of Brazil’s largest telcos, Vivo. Having not long returned from Europe, presenting at CrowdConvention in Berlin in June, Europe’s first ever Crowdsourcing event [link], the privilege once more be part of a small quorum of crowdsourcing evangelists sharing their insights and experience to another group of inquisitive on-lookers and practitioners alike, this time south of the equator, is one that is not overlooked.

Under the enthusiastic and tenacious leadership of Marina Miranda, Managing Director of mutopo, Latin America the event is sure to be a success. Based out of mutopo’s São Paulo Office, Miranda has secured contributions from enterprise sponsors Telefônica, vivo, Microsoft BizSpark, Tecnisa and Boa Vista and raised ticket sales of ~300, great for a first event in a new market. Miranda has also been able to secure a notable cast of speakers representing both local companies and the international market.

mutopo’s core business is social production with a mission to help organizations think through crowdsourcing applications and to support the implementation of initiatives often involving the introduction of other crowdsourcing tool providers to help 

Brazil, having experienced a huge uptake over the last twelve months both in the use of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding and in terms of the number of new platforms launched, was ready and primed for its first event. The last twelve months have seen an increased adoption of crowdsourcing as a model to support open innovation, as a model for the production of creative works and for solutions requiring the crowd to collect and organize information.
