"Innovation Crowd" Webinar Slides, Presented By Crowd Companies' @Jowyang and eYeka's @Joelcere


Published on

In the era of social media, creative innovation amongst crowds is on a rise. Platforms for getting the crowd together and co-creating are the new creative solution to many of your old stagnated solutions which lack the freshness and engagement aspect to it. Though crowdsourcing has been the talk of the town since a long time, yet there is an unfamiliarity feeling to it. Crowd Innovation yet raises a lot of questions in our minds.

How does innovation in crowds work? Is it really useful in increasing a company’s innovation ROI? Can we measure the results of crowd innovation? These mind boggling questions on crowd innovation have been addressed in an eYeka webinar with Jeremiah Owyang, Chief Catalyst at Crowd Companies and Joël Céré, Insight Solutions Director at eYeka, on Monday February 17 2014 at 6.30pm (CET). These are the webinar's slides.

We originally planned to publish and share a video record or the webinar, but technical glitches made us change our plans (the recording was not in high enough quality to be clear for attendees to watch and understand). We hope that these slides will help you find out what the webinar covered.

  • Introduction:Jeremiah kick-started the webinar by addressing the questions how did crowds and companies start to become one.He commenced with the question, ‘where will your company be in the next decade?’ - Innovation and technology are continuing to innovate at a fast space.
  • New technologies are on a rise, like;3D PrintingPeer to peer vending continue to grow and rise.Even bitcoin where crowd created currency, is constantly on growthThey are increasingly getting powerful, and they are able to connect to each other and it moving at an accelerated pace.
  • Data from MIT study: http://www.technologyreview.com/view/519226/technology-is-wiping-out-companies-faster-than-ever/
  • What Role do companies play when people get what they need from each other? And how would that work?
  • Connect to the crowd and enable them to lead.
  • Few examples of what all of these companies are doing today, to stay on top of all of these trends.Example: GE partners with Quirky, and Quirky enables people to submit ideas for new types of products. Whether they are consumer packages goods or they are durable goods or even electronics, like to the Home Depot or Amazon e-commerce. So GE is partnered with quirky, and enables the crowds to contribute to their own innovation processWhat about crowdfunding?
  • U-Haul, being true to their DIY nature, allowed the crowd to fund their own trucks: http://www.uhaulinvestorsclub.com/AboutUs/“U-Notes are sold in increments of $100 over the Internet with an asset-backed feature and make quarterly payments (interest and principal). These are SEC registered securities with full recourse to the issuer AMERCO, and US Bank as the third party indenture trust”http://seekingalpha.com/article/1625112-u-hauls-crowdfunding-model-for-diy-investing-interview-with-amercos-jim-shoen?source=google_news)

  • Joel CERE is the globaldirector for insights & innovation for eYeka, looks after strategic planning, helping clients use co-creation and crowdsourcing more strategically.
  • It is getting more difficult for companies to innovate, be it new products, marketing.Brands to create commercial (big TV idea) now it is about being social. About conversations. TV viewership declined steadily.Media: outspend your competitors on limited channels. Now people are the media, their recommendation more important. Learn about new products from friendsBrand love: not enough. Too passive. Successful brands are those who offer something that people want to participate in.
  • One such companies that connect brands with consumers for ideation and innovation is eYeka. Welcome to the World's biggest creative playground! Since 2006 starting in Paris, now the global market leader in online crowdsourcing for marketers. Operate worldwide with offices in Europe, Asia, LatAm. eYeka is an online community of very creative individuals active in over 150 countries. They come from different culture, countries but they all have something in common: they like to solve creative challenges. They can think creatively and do creative things.
  • We have 270,000 of this 1%.
  • How does it work and what do we do with these very very creative people?Brandcomes to us with a challenge, NPD, retail, marketing, packaging, communication. We translates this marketing challenge into a creative competition that a consumer will understand, find fun, want to participate in. We promote them on our platform and interested members can participate. We do not select them, they choose. We can promote our challenges globally in 12 languages.We give our members 3 weeks, 4 weeks depending on what we ask. People will compete for cash prizes, EUR5K to EUR40K, EUR60K.
  • All the submissions are manually vetted by our inhouse team of community managers. On an average, a project can take, 2 to 3 weeks, although wait for 5 to 6 weeks depending on each project.Feedback to creators is given, so we can improve, we can check with the briefs and brands.
  • Competition ends, we analyze the entries through our team of planners and network of analysts, semioticians, category experts and give our client an actionable recommendation.---------------And if it passes the mark then it is accepted and is eligible.……….Looking at clusters,…….. or we do something more sophisticated, depending on the requirements using semiotics analysis, … category or some cultural … basically to frame the ideas from the communities. So we look at each idea individually , what those creators say…………….
  • Internal evalutation, market testing Nielsen BASES or brief their agency to refine or amplify the results.
  • OpportunityThe rise of café culture has redefined the benchmark for a quality cup of coffee and influenced the launch of more premium coffee solutions for in-home consumption such as coffee machines. This resulted in a dip in sales for instant coffee. Nescaféwas searching for a range of innovative concepts for the next generation of instant coffee to keep the category relevant and attractive.
  • ApproachWe challenged the eYeka community across the globe to reinvent instant coffee to offer the specialness and quality of a cup of coffee you get in a coffee shop while keeping the convenience of "instant", at home. Our brief: “Make the best of both worlds by reinventing instant coffee with a new product idea so it can be enjoyed at home as a treat, café style.” In 3 weeks, our community developed 138 ideas, originating from over 40 countries.This is a new product development project therefore the entries are confidential. Our client allowed us to showcase only a small selection of entries. These are not the winning entries, but just to show you the type of submission you can get from a community of creators on such brief.
  • ChandandesignerCountry: India Gender: MaleHouse of coffeeMy Concept is called " House of Coffee ". It is a straightforward approach to building a cafe like experience at home with a premium and sleek packaging, a twist of caramel flavor and an innovative and fundoo mug. PACKAGING: A doubled-up bean box with bean bags and caramelo, Perfect for a steamed up hot coffee experience. The Package itself portrays the beauty of a delicious combination of coffee and caramel. BEAN BAG: The bean bags are a functional and convenient contraption for instant coffee packed inside an air tight pouch. Caramelo: The caramel in the nozzled pouches serves dual purpose by adding that thing of sweetness to a perfectly blended coffee and as a garnish to be poured on walls of the mug to give a dripping coffee look. COFFEE MUG: The bean Mug is a bend over the edge design to give you the option of having coffee either with froth or without. So now its in your hands to have that frothy moustache every time you sip coffee or not!
  • AnlingCountry: Singapore Gender: FemaleNescafe Instant Stir-in is a revolutionary way to make a cup of cafe-style instant coffee. Al the ingredients are layered onto the stirrer, ready to dissolve. You can choose different types of stirrer with different flavors from the pack to personalize your experience.
  • rojesbastetCountry: China Gender: Female.The idea is to contain instant coffee in iron box which is in triangular prism and in different colors. You can display them together forming a nice and delicate pattern. Each color represents different flavors with different triangle tags. Within each box of instant coffee, there is a separate pack of creamer, which is condensed coffee mate syrup, it can generate rich foam in hot water. You can enjoy rich froth in your coffee. It also goes with a small metal muddler, it can provide interesting sound of metal which is just like you are in a coffee house. And it can be assembled within a hole on the cap of the box. So it's a holistic packaging.
  • ResultseYeka's creators have reinvented instant coffee across 5 major areas: changing the product states, adding café character, increasing real quality, creating an atmosphere while preparing, drinking and creativity & playfulness. The next generation of instant coffee, café style is all about the human touch. 17 winning idea clusters from the entries were identified as potential game changers and turned into research-ready concept proposals. Nestlé thenorganised focus groups withinAustralia to assesstheir commercial viability. They are now in test phases across 6 markets. In addition to NPD, the creators' ideas inspired Nescaféto change its packaging and its communication, especially around gift packs. Due to the success of this initial project, Nestlé isnowusing eYeka acrossits portfolio.
  • A zombie flick with a twist from Singapore. Zombe outbreak, victim fumbles, see a knife and decides to take his phone. Good idea to call emergency. Approaches the zombies and take selfies to put on Facebook… With a predictable ending.
  • Efficient: Faster than traditional methods,Diverse: Reach global insights, not 3 ideas, but 100 Effective: It delivers ROI.
