Interested in crowdsourcing sites? Here is a list of top 5 crowdsourcing services you might find useful
1. PickyDomains.Com â€“ this crowd sourcing site specializes in naming things. Like names, domains, product lines, slogans, etc. The service is 100% risk free, meaning clients pay only if they decide to use one of the suggestions offered. Contributors get 40 to 60 percent of the amount paid by client.
2. 99Designs.Com â€“ 99Designs is probably the best known logo crowdsourcing service out there (though it offers all kinds of web design services as well). Itâ€™s been growing by leaps and bounds and paid out over $25 million to designers since 2008.
3. oDesk.Com â€“ dubbed ELance killer, oDesk may not kill its main competitor but having a chance to work with both, I can tell you that I like oDesk a whole lot better. Itâ€™s probably one of the best sources for crowdsourcing jobs for writers, programmers, designers, artists, marketers, virtual assistance and other freelancers.
4. IdeaBounty.Com â€“ yes, you can even crowdsource ideas. (I wonder if anyone has used existing crowdsourcing service to generate ideas for a new crowdourcing service). As the name implies, IdeaBounty pays for ideas (most clients are corporations). And even though they say â€˜ideas are a dime a dozenâ€™, IdeaBounty pays thousands and the top reward so far stands at a cool $20,000.
5. AgentAnything.Com â€“ Any Errand Any Time Any Where â€“ thatâ€™s the slogan AgentAnything goes by and thatâ€™s pretty much a close description of the service. Unlike the four you just read about, this one leans toward offline tasks and is a lot like Craigslist.
