New Features for Buyers and Creatives

Last week, after many months of development during 2009, we released 100% new software code for crowdspring.com. While rewriting the code that powers our site, we made a number of improvements – for both buyers and creatives. Here’s a list of those improvements and a brief description of each:

Improvements for Buyers

  • Ability to save and maintain drafts of projects before posting.
  • Tools to promote your project on Facebook, Twitter, and dozens of other social networks.
