    While crowdsourcing may seem like a relatively new concept for English-speaking countries, it appears that the concept is exploding in China. DesignCrowd CEO, Alec Lynch, gave a keynote video presentation at the first global Witkey and Crowdsourcing Conference in Guangzhou China. He compared crowdsourcing in China to crowdsourcing in English-speaking countries, indicating that China is utilizing crowdsourcing more rampantly than its global business counterparts.

    There are a variety of reasons why crowdsourcing a logo to develop an identifiable and memorable brand is a good way to start your business off on the right track. Businesses can tap into a wide base of talented individuals that can create a variety of beautiful designs that will give a company the right look. Cartoon designs, imprints and designs can all be achieved with artists and freelance designers. Here are five reasons to crowdsource your logo to achieve great results time and time again:
     
    Provide Jobs

    Crowdsourcing means giving people the jobs they need to support themselves and their families. A simple freelance logo job can show what a person is made of and how committed they to a project. Employers are likely to find potential full or part time employers from freelancers who have shown themselves worthy of future projects or a position within the company.

    When it comes to crowdsourcing, this new wave of thinking can be an innovative way for companies to get a headstart while not spending too much on a certain talent pool of employees. Crowdsourcing is the outsourcing of company directives to the public at large. It is great for small businesses because there is no need to worry about employee hiring or certain demands in higher compensation and wages. Crowdsourcing does not require any pension plans, unions, 401ks or other potential issues that will provide a distraction as companies are debuting to the public. A small business can focus on serious business matters while being able to expand and enhance their brand.
     
    Opportunity for Individuals to Assist Businesses
    Outsourcing jobs to the public also gives people a chance to do some extra work while not having to go through a rigid hiring process. Individuals can make money by giving opinions, brainstorming, or voting and companies that contract the public to do work for them are providing a new way that people can be earn. It is a simple and direct way of getting work accomplished while being able to give quick job opportunities and money to the larger population. More companies are realizing that it is cheaper to outsource their jobs and projects to people who otherwise may not have had a chance if they went through a normal hiring process.

Employers only pay when the job has been completed to their satisfaction.

    Most of us don’t think twice about donating a few dollars to a charity that we feel strongly about, yet we all seem to balk when the money is going towards the arts or some other local project. The reality is that many of these projects will simply wither and die without the funds required to move forward. Sure, they may not all be things that will change the world in the way that a well-known charitable organization can, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t worthy of a little bit of help.


    Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding To Achieve a Common Goal

    Many of these projects suffer from the mere fact that no-one knows anything about them, but that has changed, all thanks to the internet and the power of social networking. Crowdsourcing has become the way in which many individuals, organization, and businesses get a project done, with many of those projects requiring nothing from the people involved but time and brain power. Crowdsourcing was initially used by companies looking to harness the ideas of a large group of people to arrive at one common answer or solution, although modern crowdsourcing is largely confined to the internet.

    Companies that have ignored the culture change and not recognizing that the world has made a dramatic shift into business outsourcing are on outside looking in. Outsourcing by using competent freelancers has proven to be a good alternative to hiring. Almost all successful companies have dabbled in utilizing non-geo-specific workers to supplement their operations. Outsourcing using freelancers has absolutely exploded in popularity as the act can potentially save the hiring company thousands of dollars every year. Typically by outsourcing talent the hiring company does not assume as much overhead as they would by hiring a full-time employee. Every organization has day-to-day tasks that are essential to allow for proper operation for the business. Often times, in the case of startup companies, founders tend to be bogged down in the fulfillment of these tasks where their time and effort could be better spent elsewhere.
     
    Benefits of Business Outsourcing
    By taking on new staff and hiring for positions, companies have to be able to shoulder the burden of responsibility that comes with these actions. In addition to all of the overhead including medical expenses, benefits, and sick pay there are numerous regulations and tax implications that must also be accounted for. Companies looking to save money and not have the additional aggravation of hiring full-time staff members can greatly benefit by outsourcing key jobs to paid freelancers. One such example of the benefits of outsourcing can be seen in secretarial or legal functions. Often times when companies outsource these functions they generate significant savings on their employee payroll in addition to experiencing consistent performance.

    With over a billion people living on Earth today, can you imagine the total number of problems people need help with throughout their everyday lives and in the workplace? Need someone to design a logo for you? How about helping translate a document from Chinese to English? Fortunately, these problems have solutions because there are freelancers that specialize in logo design and translation services and can immediately step up and provide you with a solution. However, what if your problem is uncommon and you aren’t sure there is a specific freelancer that has the type of niche specialty you desire?
     
    Freelancers have a wide range of skills that go beyond what they typically provide on a regular basis to employers. Additionally, most are willing to gain experience on topics that are new to them by dedicating themselves to research and putting forth their best effort to complete a job. Employers love this approach because it does not put them in an exhausting position of finding a new freelancer each time they have a new task at hand.
