How to Use Twitter for Crowdsourcing and Simple Market Research | Social Media Today

How to Use Twitter for Crowdsourcing and Simple Market Research | Social Media Today | Virtual Working | Scoop.it

Having a social media presence can be an invaluable resource for providing insights into consumer needs, sentiment, and opinions towards a business, service or brand. Social media is by no means a replacement for traditional market research, but it can be used in a broader sense. That broader sense is becoming a widely adopted trend referred to as Crowdsourcing.

 

Crowdsourcing is the act of outsourcing tasks to an undefined, large group of people or community (a "crowd"), through an open call. Twitter is the perfect platform for implementing such a tactic and will often yield insightful, and sometimes surprising, results. Using Twitter to openly ask your followers and the community as a whole has additional benefits. By listening, organizations gain first-hand insight on their customers' desires.You have the option to follow up with your respondents in real time.

Crowdsourcing: Hanging Out with All the Right People

Crowdsourcing: Hanging Out with All the Right People | Virtual Working | Scoop.it

According to researchers at Penn State, crowdsourcing works best when the right type of crowd is matched up with particular types of crowdsourcing projects.

 

Erickson and Petrick also identified three characteristics of crowds that can be optimized for each type of business problem:

The knowledge of the crowd: The crowd’s collective knowledge might be general or specialized; situational or domain specific; or about products/servicesThe value of the crowd: What makes the population of the crowd valuable? Is it the sheer volume of people contributing to a project? Is the diversity of the crowd important? Or, is the variety of what the crowd knows of value?The location of the crowd: Does it matter if the crowd is internal or external to the organization?
