7 Crowdsourcing Sites for your Online Business
by DavidDeprice, October 24, 2011
Crowdsourcing what
 –? If you haven’t heard of this term, then WHERE HAVE
YOU BEEN?!?Crowdsourcing refers to h
iring a lot of people for a task that’s
normally done by an individual.
It’s slowly gaining momentum, and is fast becoming one of the most popular 
buzzwords in many online companies today. The reason is simple: it has savedthem a lot of money time and ti
me again. So maybe you’re as skeptic as a tight peanut butter jar; but you’ll believe us after reading these seven companies who
used it for their business model
and actually succeeded.
PickyDomains.com Finding a domain name is easy; but finding the right one for your company is waymore difficult. Enter PickyDomains
the site who will do the hard work for you.Just deposit $50 and give exactly what you want (such askeywords,extension, and desired length)
 —and you’re all done.All you have to do is wait for their 44,000 ―virtual wordsmiths‖ to come up with
the right name especially made for you. Once you find a good one, 40-60% of your
 payment will go to that lucky person who made the suggestion. But here’s the juicy part: you get your money back if you didn’t get to choose a name; it’s as simple as
that. PickyDomains also does slogans, so you should definitely check them out.99designs.com Want something pretty and inexpensive? Go to 99Designs.com. This site will doeverything for you, fromcreating logos to buttons
to even web designing. Theminimum fee for a project is $150, with 40,000 designers wanting to do the project
for you. So all you ―we
hour‖ digital artists can go straight back to
their little drawing boards
and sulk.istockPhoto.com When it comes to stock photographs, audio clips, andvideo footages, 
iStockPhoto.com does it best. It’s not your typical website, but if your work 
involves a lot of media, then this crowdsourcing resource would definitely be good
for you. It’s less ideal, however, when it comes to their strange credit system; but if you’re willing to overlook that, then everything will be smooth
-sailing for youuntil the end.Microworkers.com 
Microjobs, anyone? No, it’s not a software; it’s actually another crowdsourcingresource you can use with anything that needs social participation. Let’s say you
posted aYouTube video and wanted it to have a lot of votes. What you do is hire Microworkers.com to hire individuals to add the votes for you (10 cents perupvote).
