drag and drop
website builder available for free to any registereduser. Evly is an online network of crowdsourcing communities where users can createadvanced crowdsourcing websites in a few clicks to bring people together to constantly solvenew challenges.Crowdsourcing is the method of sourcing a solution from a crowd, community or socialnetwork as opposed to a single contractor with the understanding that the wisdom of thecrowd is greater than the wisdom of the individual. This method not only gives rise to a varietyof stimulating solutions but also powerful viral marketing potential.Evly websites function much like the group or fan-pages on other social media websites,however evly provides users with their own unique website and the ability to grow a networkbased around their particular interest or need. In addition, evly will provide advancedcrowdsourcing and social networking features which will enable website owners to easilymanage and grow their own community.CrowdTech, the holding company for Springleap.com, evly.com and eKomi.co.za, utilizes theinsights acquired from Springleap.com’s crowdsourcing model. Along with two years ofresearch in the development of evly, CrowdTech combines these learning’s in the developmentof this distinctive crowdsourcing social media platform. CrowdTech recognises the need toprovide a service that will allow anyone through the medium of the Internet, the opportunity tosource solutions by harnessing collective intelligence, skills, talent or collaborative effortsthrough a large network of people.Co-Founder, Eran Eyal suggests:
“The social web is no longer going to be about idle chatter on a platform populated by reactive users: evly.com is about a world of PRO-active websitecreators and community members constantly looking to solve new problems and build  solutions in an environment saturated by the right tools.” 
Evly provides the tools that enable general users and large brands to achieve variousobjectives: the platform allows community engagement, the ability to source answers to anypossible question, fund raising for various ventures, and the gathering of market researchthrough analysis of comments, feedback and voting.
CEO of CrowdTech, Eric Edelstein, proposes that the future web will be centred on goals,objectives, purposes and challenges. “
evly.com allows interaction with a purpose rather than people just interacting for the sake of it! Companies and individuals from all across the globe are now beginning to see that they can solve problems by tapping into a larger knowledge base, at a fraction of the price and in a much shorter time through the Internet.” 
 Evly - the “network of networks”, will open up a world of hybrid crowdsourcing communities toevery evly user. Just by joining evly.com or any community built off the evly platform, users willbe encouraged to explore the evly network through their own personalised dashboard. Therethey will be able to search, discover and participate across the entire evly network ofcrowdsourcing communities. Analysts predict the estimated growth of evly over the next 36months will be around 35 million registered users, along with 1.5 million active websites and4000 corporate clients.
