Crowdsourcing as a Model to Engage Followers and Build Brand Equity

The product of crowdsourcing can be quantified in different ways - ideas converted into competitive advantage, more affordable labor driving operational savings, and meaningful engagement with employees, fans or customers to increase brand loyalty are just some examples. Crowdsourcing.org recently spoke with Richard Spiegel, CEO of CrowdTogether, a newly launched crowdsourcing platform to see if it could really deliver across multiple dimensions of the crowdsourcing value proposition.

Crowdsourcing and Professional Creatives CAN Co-exist Peacefully
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity

I’ve responded numerous times to the accusation/belief that crowdsourcing is somehow bastardizing creativity and putting professional creatives out of work so I wanted to share my thoughts in this blog post. First we have to acknowledge and understand there are many different types of crowdsourcing, so many that the term is being taxed and we might need to add to the nomenclature—maybe we can crowdsource a new name!

How to design your own crowdfunding platform

This is the second part of my three-part series exploring some of the aspects entrepreneurs need to consider when designing a crowdfunding platform. The context for my posts has been a close look at the French crowdfunding market place and in-depth interviews with ten owners of French crowdfunding platforms. In my first post I presented a few factors that I felt made it more difficult for French crowdfunding platforms to achieve the same levels of explosive growth that are being experienced by crowdfunding platforms in the US. In this article I take a closer look at the different models that are being tested in the French market. I conducted interviews with ten owners of French crowdfunding platforms. Specifically, I spoke with: Smiti Arbia of carnetdemode.com, Nicolas Bailly of touscoprod, Alexandre Boucherot of Ulule, Hortense Garand of babeldoor.com, Michael Goldman of MyMajorCompany, Nicolas Guillaume of Friendsclear, Angel Ramos of revenonsalamusique.com, Vincent Ricordeau of KissKissBankBank, and Yannick Robert of Mywittygames.com.


At first glance, looking through the initiatives listed on the different crowdfunding websites, it’s easy to draw the conclusion that all crowdfunding ventures are the same; projects, causes or entrepreneurial ventures that are looking for funding. However, upon closer look, a number of characteristics that uniquely identify the different types of crowdfunding initiatives become apparent. Setting aside the different areas of focus for their mission (such as initiatives related to: music, movies, shows, fashion, books, journalism, horse racing, etc.), there is a recognizable set of goals that people raising capital through crowdfunding platforms are trying to achieve.

Crowdfunding Regulation in Europe

As a new model for raising capital, money raised through crowdfunding is making an impact across all of Europe. In German-speaking countries alone, more than a quarter-million Euros have been raised through crowdsourcing platforms to finance numerous start-ups, projects and good cause initiatives. This has attracted the attention of the European policy makers. At a conference in Poland this coming November, a European declaration on crowdfunding will be released. Naturally, the question of regulation has been raised; given that both the model and rules of participation have yet to be defined and adopted in a consistent way, there remains much ambiguity.

In general, there is still a lot of confusion when it comes to crowdfunding, especially when cross-border fundraising is involved. Since the European Union is trying to develop a single payment mechanism that can work across the continent of Europe, for countries that have both adopted the Euro as their currency and for others that remain with their national currencies, there is hardly any surprise that there is a need for some clarification and transparency at the European level.

Towards that goal, the Institute for Communication in Social Media (www.ikosom.de) and David Roethler, a consultant on digital trends and European fundraising, are conducting a study about crowdfunding schemes in the cultural and creative industries sector in Europe on behalf of the European Expert Network on Culture (EENC), a network set-up by the European Commission.
