uTest CMO Matt Johnston Presents "Is This the Year Crowdsourcing Goes Mainstream?" at Enterprise 2.0 Conference, Santa Clara

Johnston to Discuss How Online Communities Are Changing the Way Work Is Done Nov 16 at 2:30pm

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2011) - uTest, the leader for in-the-wild software testing, announced that its Chief Marketing Officer, Matt Johnston, will discuss the keys to successfully employing a crowdsourcing model to create an engaged community of skilled professionals on November 16th at 2:30pm at the E2.0 Conference.

Chief Marketing Officer Matt Johnston has more than a decade of technology, product and marketing experience and leads uTest's efforts in building awareness, forming key partnerships and creating a world-class community of testers. Other industry leaders in the Community Management: Engaging External Audiences track include:

  • Google Community Manager, Adrienne Ludwick
  • Dell Director of Global Community, Bill Johnston
  • Aetna Community Management Strategist, Lauren Vargas

Anyone can build a loosely affiliated, unstructured crowd -- a mob. The key to successfully employing a crowdsourcing model in a b2b/professional services type space is to advance beyond the realm of a 'mob' to create an engaged, interactive community of diverse and skilled professionals. With the help of reputation and compensation systems, community recruitment and engagement, public profiles and social media, crowdsourcing has the potential to take the services industry to new heights.

Using real-world examples, Johnston will dispel the most common myths about crowdsourcing; explain why it doesn't mean the end to in-house staffs; and reveal why it is NOT just another marketing buzz word.
