The Book: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Crowdsourcing 

 If two heads are better than one, then imagine how great 200 or 2,000 or more could be for helping you get something done. That's the potential power of crowdsourcing—tapping into the global talent pool and using an "open source" approach to bringing in more people to participate together to reach a common goal. Crowdsourcing leverages today's Internet technology to get work done, obtain input, and stimulate action.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Crowdsourcing explains the theory and practice of crowdsourcing including:

  • All the tools you’ll need to begin crowdsourcing
  • How to define your goals and target different crowds
  • How to design the best project or campaign to share
  • How to organize and analyze the input you receive from the crowd to get results
  • How to apply the crowd's output directly to your business

    The book includes information about dozens of crowdsourcing companies, service providers, platforms and tools to facilitate the process of tapping into online crowds in an organized, trackable and measurable way. Crowdsourcing is being used from everything from logo and website design to site and application beta testing to product research and innovation to community improvements.
