Podcast on Tapping the Crowd for the Next Big Idea
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Increasingly businesses are outsourcing work to experts, freelancers and even consumers through crowdsourcing. The latest Blue Paper™ and Podcast from promotional products retailer 4imprint, entitled Beyond the team: Crowdsourcing, explores just how businesses are using the Internet to cultivate innovation and marketing advantages through collaboration.
“It’s all about taking a problem or need and finding an individual, or a group of individuals, who have the collective knowledge and vested interest to help find your solution,” explains Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing for 4imprint. “We hope this blue paper is helpful for those thinking about this strategy.”
Crowdsourcing enables businesses to:
• Expand options and solutions to beyond what is immediately available or affordable in-house.
• Drive down expenses by creating increased competition for work.
• Offer the ability to develop something new while simultaneously creating brand awareness and building vested relationships with consumers.
• Provide a means to funnel and redirect attention to a business’s other marketing efforts.
Beyond the team: Crowdsourcing examines the benefits and potential obstacles when implementing a crowdsourcing strategy and presents popular models and platforms to explore. To read this Blue Paper, or to download the Podcast, visit www.4imprint.com/bluepapers.
