Hello, I am a MSc in Marketing at Erasmus University Rotterdam. I would like to write my thesis about consumer behavior in non-paid crowdsourcing initiatives. My main research question is:
What are the factors that influence contributions in non-paid crowdsourcing initiatives?
• To what extent previous winning or high recognition affect the next participation?
• To what extent the awareness affect (i.e. volume of previous postings) affect the participation rate?
• What is the time effect on decision to post (i.e. whether to post early or wait till others start)?
In order to make my research I need a secondary data from crowdsourcing initiatives. Maybe someone could advice me which websites could be suitable for me or maybe you know some companies which might be willing to cooperate with me?
Thank you for your help in advance.
