The Importance of Trust via Ideavibes Blog

The Importance of Trust via Ideavibes Blog | Crowdfunding Hep | Scoop.it
Trust – it plays a significant role in successful crowdsourcing. Just as important as it is to ensure you have the right people in your crowd, it’s important to make sure that you build a trusting relationship with them too. Think of a time you felt misled by a company or a time where your expectations of a brand fell short. Chances are, your feeling toward that company changed, as did your level of trust. After all of the work that goes into a crowdsourcing project, the last thing you want to do is disappoint your crowd.

crowdsourcing

crowdsourcing | Crowdfunding Hep | Scoop.it
Here are a few quick, low-key ways crowdsourcing works

Say you’re a nonprofit looking to improve your services. You ask your Facebook fans and Twitter followers — people who have chosen to connect with you — how they think you can become better. They feel included in the process and want to answer, and then your organization has a solution to its problem. That’s what crowdsourcing can do — it can get a job done.

Or take blog posts. Studies show that people respond better to posts with images, so your organization seeks to include a photo along with the information you provide on your website. Where can you find images? Two good starts are Socialbrite’s Free Photos Directory and Flickr’s directory of Creative Commons photos, with 160 million photos available under various licenses. Both can be used to find free photos that you can use for your website, blog posts, reports, presentations and more — just give the photographers proper attribution.

FundChange

FundChange | Crowdfunding Hep | Scoop.it
FundChange helps charities fund projects by breaking them down into parts, also referred to as “small do-able asks”. Just because projects are broken down into a more achievable scale doesn’t mean that other projects are on the wayside waiting in line. You can post multiple projects to FundChange at the same time in order to achieve your goals faster. Smaller projects simply means that fundraising targets are also smaller, and in most cases, allows the goals to be achieved faster.
