    Andrea - we are in the final stages of analyzing data from our first survey looking at the crowdsourcing industry and providers. The research reports will be available early next month.

    At that point we will be able to answer many of the questions that have been seeking answers.

    Hi Carl, Thanks for your feedback I'm pitching to investors on Monday and that's why I'm looking for a number. It's for my startup Crowdsourcing is such a new and growing market. I've read something that said 4.3Billion for Crowdsourcing Advertising in the USA for 2012.

  • Carl Esposti Carl Esposti Jan 26, 2012 01:06 pm GMT

    Andrea, our data would say that number is not a reliable one. Email me and we will provide you with some other numbers.

    I am interested in the crowdsourcing industry survey 2011 for my marketing studies. I am writing my exam to the topic crowdsourcing in the food industry and I need numbers and facts concerning the crwodsourcing market and the growth in the usa, europe and especially germany.

That would be wonderful.

    Hi Carl, it would be fantastic to get a view of this data, as an overview of the sector. Who are the main players, their startegies and market shares, market opportunity, key success factors, client and providers profiles... I have also been looking for this information and this is very hard to find, so any help is more than welcome :-)


  • Angela Gil Angela Gil Feb 03, 2012 10:08 am GMT

    Hi Andrea, when is the survey planned to be published? Thanks!

  • Andrea Shillington Andrea Shillington Feb 04, 2012 07:49 pm GMT

    Hi Carl, I tried emailing you through the site but I suspect the the email didn't reach you. Could you email me
    With gratitude,

  • Carl Esposti Carl Esposti Feb 04, 2012 09:13 pm GMT

    Sorry I didn't see the email. I'm sure it reach us but it's a little hard to keep on top of everything. Carl@ will certainly find me.

    HI, I am doing a report on crowdfunding and was wondering whether you have any statistics that would be of use? Especially information that is guided toward (as Angela Gil mentioned): "Who are the main players, their strategies and market shares, market opportunity, key success factors, client and providers profiles."

  • Carl Esposti Carl Esposti Feb 07, 2012 04:34 am GMT

    Hi Chloe - we have had >125 crowdfunding platforms submit data to our current crowdfunding industry research initiative - quite something! The survey will be closed shortly and we will then begin analyzing the data - we will have extensive data to report in March. Please email me directly if you would like to share more about your research project.

  • Guest Massimo Riera Feb 14, 2012 10:09 am GMT

    Hi Carl, I'm searching for stats about paid crowdsourcing jobs for a start up project. Is there a way to know how much are paid crowd workers and how many paid crowdsourcing offers are on web per year? This is to understand if crowdsourcing is a profitable work market not only for crowdsourcing platforms but also for crowdsourcers. Thanks

  • Carl Esposti Carl Esposti Feb 14, 2012 08:04 pm GMT

    Hi Massimo - we are in the final stages of completing our research and we will be producing the first report on the Cloud Labor segment of the crowdsourcing industry in the next couple of days. We will be reporting data on the average hourly earnings of Crowd Worker and the monthly earnings of the top five workers for different categories of crowdsourcing in different regions.

  • Guest Massimo Riera Feb 15, 2012 12:55 am GMT

    Hey Carl , thank you very much for a so quick and good answer. These kind of data will be very useful to check some hypothesis I did around crowdsourcing work and validate a business model around paid crowdsourcing works. I'll wait the report with a lot of interest.

  • Guest Nina Mar 15, 2012 05:14 pm GMT

    Hi Cart, I noticed that the survey is published finally. I don´t need the whole survey - just an overview about the market shares of the geographical using. The awareness level of crowdsourcing in the usa, europe, germany would be helpful too, for my exam. Can you help me? I have already written you earlier, but you didn´t answered. Email adress:
