    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.

    Small business owners are notorious for doing it all. Whether it’s because of a lack of qualified staff, or a lack of money to pay them, these folks often find themselves Jacks (and Jills) of all trades. And while that arrangement might work for some, there’s bound to be times when the job is just too much for even the savviest of owners.

    The power of many
    And that’s where crowdsourcing comes in. Simply put, crowdsourcing takes the collective skills and abilities of a variety of professional talents and combines these with the power and reach of the Internet. The result is an online marketplace that allows people to sell their specialized services to the buyers that need them – often for less than “market rates”.

    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.

    Many online marketplaces promise to supply small businesses with solutions that will take their start-up company from zero to sixty in no time flat. However, these smart businesses know better than to rely on marketplaces that don’t have a solid footing or a foundation that supports multiple professional services. Witmart.com is a strong online workplace for non-physical products that can truly handle multiple services within their platform. Armed with 7 million registered users, Witmart.com along with Chinese sister site Zbj.com, offer promising logo design, web design, translation, writing, and sales and marketing services to small businesses to help them achieve their goals.
     
    The vast wealth of knowledge and support amongst the large number of freelancers helps separate them from other online marketplace competitors. Employers routinely receive multiple bids on projects to help them succeed. Witmart’s goal is not for small businesses to outsource just one aspect of their business, but to have the company become ingrained in the Witmart brand and improve their business by posting several jobs to simplify their needs. This allows the business to move forward faster and for less than it would cost to hire full time employees. This type of action is common among small businesses that use Witmart.

    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.

    Thousands of new businesses are formed each month and if you’re one of these new businesses, it’s likely you’ve had the difficult task of coming up with a name for your company. While on the surface this may not be one of the topics that keeps new owners lying awake at night, choosing a business name is a vital aspect of forming a business and is what many consumers will judge you upon when deciding to shop for goods or services. It isn’t uncommon for companies to waffle over the perfect name for theirbusiness for months.

    One problem is with so many companies already formed you may find that every name you want is taken and coming up with another suitable name is a monumental task. However, through the power of the Internet, many companies are taking on input from knowledgeable freelancers to help decide on a business name through a concept known as Crowdsourcing.
