- Various topics can be addressed at a low cost and usually quite rapidly, frequently with no payments to the contributors;
- The organization doing the crowdsourcing can greatly broaden the potential contributions beyond its own employees and direct contacts;
- The crowdsourcing activity may be able to provide the views of many prospective customers or other interested parties, and can initiate and develop relationships that would be difficult or impossible to initiate otherwise.
