Crowdsourced customization lets customers collaborate for tangible results

Implications - While crowdsourcing allows companies to gain the ideas of the “crowd,” crowdsourced customization is going one step further. This tactic asks customers to collaborate and apply their own creativity for a specific, tangible result they can call their own. Users get more than a chance to give their idea or interact—they can express themselves and unite with others in an artistic way that also garners them a product or a tangible creation.
