Crowd sourcing

  1. 1. Crowd Sourcing<br />
  2. 2. WHAT IS CROWD SOURCING?<br />“Crowdsourcing is the act of taking a job <br />traditionally performed by a designated <br />Employee & outsourcing to an undefined, <br />generally a large group of people in the form of <br />an Open Call” (Jeff Howe)<br />
  3. 3. Elance& Crowd Sourcing<br />Elance.com is a website that offers both <br />Freelancers & companies a chance to achieve <br />their goals by offering them a platform where <br />they can meet.<br />
  4. 4. So basically Elance.com is a website that <br />Companies use to outsource their jobs to <br />professionals in different fields (web & <br />programming, sales & marketing, finance & <br />management …).<br />Professionals that are located all around the <br />world.<br />
  5. 5. That way Free lancers will gain worldwide <br />Exposure by submitting their projects that might <br />Interest companies located all around the world.<br />At the end, only one Free lancer gets his submitted <br />job chosen. <br />The entire process could be compared to <br />Brainstorming, except that in crowd sourcing <br />one project gets picked at the end.<br />
  6. 6. In addition to the worldwide exposure <br />freelancers could get from signing up to <br />Elance.com, they will have a better chance in <br />finding jobs (in different fields) that match their <br />skills, work on multitude of projects at the <br />same time & grow a worldwide reputation as <br />well as a portfolio via the web.<br />
  7. 7. Big & Small projects are posted regularly on <br />Elance.com, therefore offering freelancers the <br />chance to gain different sum of money <br />depending on the project’s size & importance. <br />
  8. 8. The main disadvantage that might cross a <br />freelancer while submitting his project on <br />Elance.com is the harsh competition.<br />Being available to everyone all around the <br />world Elance.com has become a <br />platform where HARSH COMPETITION<br />is nothing but NORMAL.<br />
