The Crowd’s Many ‘Voices’

As with most great ideas, the vision for Voices was developed at a kitchen table and mapped out on serviettes in coffee shops. In the earliest days of our business partnership, I composed music and recorded bands while my wife Stephanie was a recording artist who also performed as a soloist at weddings and taught singing lessons.?

After building a website for our audio production services and achieving high search engine rankings in Google, a number of freelance voice talent contacted us to see if they could be listed on our website to gain work opportunities. As more and more ‘voices’ were listed, we began to see how our company could provide services to talent who were looking for ways to promote themselves and apply for jobs.


While recording was something that we were good at, it didn't take long for us to realize that we were on the verge of a great opportunity that could change our lives forever. Stephanie and I wanted to find the best way possible to do what we loved while helping others to succeed. Both of us were ready to step back from recording and let others step in. If we could live out our dreams while positively impacting the lives of others — thereby helping them to live out their dreams and support their families — we would be successful no matter what.

Crowdfunding Lessons Learned From "Designing Obama" Creator Scott Thomas

The design director for the 2008 Obama presidential campaign, Scott Thomas was an early pioneer on Kickstarter with his Designing Obama campaign. At a time when few crowdfunding programs had caught the public’s eye, and raising six-figure amounts through online pledges seemed just a pipe dream, he managed to pull in an impressive $84,613 for a historical book chronicling the art and design that helped propel Barack Obama into office.

The Surprising Trends in Who Crowdsources Work From Where

One cloud labor platform's 2012 numbers paint a picture of clear and sustained growth for the online labor market that's consistent with what we've been seeing for at least the last half-decade, but what is most interesting is to note where many of the workers and the companies they perform tasks for are located.

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:
