At the beginning of 2014 Digital Works Consulting (DWC) and an innovative crowdsourcing company called LoudSource started to work together as partners.
At DWC our partnership approach is based on expanding capability and capacity. Not only does this work for us and our partners, but more importantly, we are able to bring the benefit of providing a trusted network of specialists and innovators in their respective fields to our clients. As the Director of Business Acceleration my own practice needed a boost in terms of video capabilities and the related benefits this brings for search engine optimization.
LoudSource are a company who help you look at things differently. They are an open innovation, crowdsourcing and co-creation agency. If this is new terminology for you, then let me break it down. They are fundamentally helping businesses innovate faster. They get businesses to engage with their ‘fans’ and involve them with the development of new ideas – be that via video, TV, apps or other creative processes and driving campaigns through social media channels.
LoudSource tap into a huge network by running communities such as Appchallenge and FilmContest.com to help businesses access new ideas and talent. A great recent example of this was when LoudSource helped Australian and New Zealand Bank Westpac launch a crowdsourcing global app challenge ‘Kiwis love geeks’ inviting UK developers and designers to draw on their experience as a bank customer and isolate a service or process that could be done easier and faster using a mobile or web app.
They have worked with diverse brands both big and small and have been at the heart of very successful campaigns such as the creation of the world largest mobile charity campaign for the 2010 FIFA world cup, generating support from 5.9 million people globally.
