|Description||Crowd sourced biz docs and content.|
Spudaroo.com launched the first crowd sourcing platform that connects time strapped entrepreneurs needing professional business material and content with a community of talented experts.
“Spudaroo.com presents a great alternative to websites such as Elance, oDesk and PeoplePerHour.com,” says Founder, Kate Hiscox.
“Unlike websites that encourage users to choose an expert based on a proposal, Spudaroo.com requires experts to submit completed material in a read-only format. The user rates the experts submission, requests the changes they would like to see and the process continues until the user is satisfied.”
Available materials include slide presentations, web content, business plans, press and social media releases, basic legal documents and blog articles.
“Spudaroo.com is about making projects flow smoothly from concept through to delivery. Experts benefit from working with users that are engaged and focused on reaching a satisfying conclusion, resulting in a well defined, time efficient project with guaranteed payment,” explains Co-Founder, Nicola Cadwell.
The site is enthusiastic about its use of crowdsourcing, a model made popular by websites such as design centric 99Designs.com and Adhack.com. Spudaroo.com is the first Web site to utilize the method for business documents and web content.
“Spudaroo came about as a result of my own experience,” stated Hiscox. “When starting a business, your time and money are critical. I’ve approached companies to produce a business plan or add some zing to a slide presentation. You hand over a deposit and hope for the best but the revisions are often limited and the project ends regardless of whether you’re satisfied. It was time to level the playing field.”
“Crowdsourcing has demonstrated that while the user has the opportunity to work with many experts at once, they tend to form a relationship with one or two experts early on in the process. Its an efficient, cost effective model that delivers work that meets expectations.”
