Adroll - Engaging an On-Demand Workforce for Lead Generation

It has been a few weeks since we launched our public beta. We have selected a small group of pilot Clients (both large, global Fortune 500 corporations and emerging global leaders) who have been working with us over the last several months as we improve our product. We really appreciate the valuable feedback and patience as we continue to improve LiveWork.

Each week, we plan to highlight a Client who is using LiveWork for their on-demand workforce needs. This week, we are showcasing Adroll, a San Francisco social advertising platform that is using LiveWork for lead generation. Adroll is a venture-backed startup with a limited direct sales force, and was seeking cost efficient ways to augment their existing inhouse team for certain business processes. Through LiveWork, Adroll is able to rapidly source, engage with, certify, and pay a virtual workforce of independent contractors to assist their inhouse team with lead generation, providing high quality, cost effective leads.

Unlike other work marketplaces, Adroll can leverage the integrated workforce screening, scheduling, and collaboration tools to efficiently monitor and optimize an on-demand workforce. Adroll is able to also leverage LiveWork's “pay for performance” model, paying only for results.

If you feel your corporation could benefit from an on-demand workforce, we look forward to hearing from you!

Virtual Company Creation

One of the challenges for entrepreneurs, BPO's or individuals is the ability to highlight their business and services they offer to prospect clients.

A unique offering on LiveWork is the ability to create virtual storefronts for service providers or BPOs. Through the LiveWork platform, service providers can create a presence, highlight their business offerings, services and workforce.

This enables a service provider to transform their workforce into an on-demand, virtual workforce to reach new clients and markets, and, allows them to find ways to generate additional revenue through optimizing their workforce utilization rates.

Creating a virtual storefront on the platform involves creating a profile outlining service offerings. Businesses can take advantage of integrated controls to manage, add and accept new workforce members to provide services on behalf of their virtual business. Domestic service providers or global BPO's looking to reach new clients and virtualize their workforce can use LiveWork in a simple and free (there are no fees for posting your storefront!) manner to market their services and workforces to prospect clients.

To create a virtual storefront, see our FAQ for more details.

Welcome to the beta release of LiveWork

Welcome to the beta release of LiveWork, a community that enables people to work on their own terms and work together as teams to offer their services to companies who need to get business work done. Much in the same way that eBay enabled sellers and companies to instantly build on-line storefronts to revolutionize the world of commerce, we are building LiveWork to help teams of experts and Business Process Outsourcing firms (BPOs) to create virtual service companies and offer their services on-demand.

We know that this revolutionary model of virtual work is great for both businesses and workers. At LiveWork, we are inspired every day by bringing more value to businesses, and more work and career opportunities to workers.

While LiveWork is a new service, our system is built based on the LiveOps technology we have developed over the past 6 years to operate one of the largest virtual work communities on the Internet, with more than 100 million mission critical business tasks completed by 20K virtual business owners. Through LiveWork, we are now making this technology available to anybody who wants to offer their services or hire an on-demand workforce.

We are still in the process of adding / expanding many features of the LiveWork site, so we appreciate your patience if some things are not working the way you would like them to work. Also, please let us know what we can do to improve our service by sending email to feedback@livework.com. We very much appreciate your feedback, and will be using this blog to update you on new developments and features.

Thanks for your support, and we look forward to helping you build your business and revolutionize the world of work!
