The outsourcing market as a whole is approximately a $115 billion industry, and the top 14 crowdsourcing firms alone brought in about $50 million in revenue in 2011. Many of those crowd workers will make something like $2 per hour.

We detail the ups and downs, ins and outs, and if it really is possible to reach your goal more quickly, cheaper, and faster.
