First. This will be a job that will lead to (multiple) other jobs. We will also be accepting multiple bids on this job.
The one requirement we have is that you are located in the United States. We only advertise to the US and our product is only avaiable in the US. If you are not in the US please do not bid.
This job will consist of the following:
We will give you a story. This story will describe who you are and what product you will be searching for. You will try to put yourself in the mindset of the character in this story. You will then develop a list of your top 5 questions you would have about this type of product before ever conducting a search.
That's all this initial job will consist of. After you have turned in your questions we will post another private job for you if your questions were acceptable. The private job will be a continuation of this job.
