If you've been looking for an easy to read book that can help you get up to speed on crowdsourcing quickly, the official Crowdsourcing For Dummies book publishes tomorrow, May 28. Preorders on Amazon are available now.
Over the past year, Daily Crowdsource writer, Crowd Leader, author, Professor, Crowdopolis speaker, & IEEE Computer Society President, David Alan Grier, has been compiling his knowledge in his latest publication, Crowdsourcing For Dummies. It's a plain-English guide to help you understand crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, & open innovation.
I'm excited about this release because I've been communicating with Grier throughout the writing cycle & know he's put a lot of time into it. Here's what his latest book will teach you:
- Plan and launch your crowdsourcing project
- Find the right platform for your needs
- Promote your project and attract the right audience
- Manage and motivate your crowd to get the best results
Netflix crowdsourced a better prediction engine for customers' movie ratings. L'Oreal crowdsourced a television advert for a tiny fraction of what it would've cost ordinarily. Dell crowdsourced thousands of new product ideas and improvements. And now in Crowdsourcing For Dummies, Grier demonstrates how you can tap into the amazing power of the crowd.
