Project Description

I'm building an event directory. I need someone to go to websites for an assigned city where they can find data to be populated into an Excel spreadsheet. Each directory listing will have 13 fields of data and accuracy is essential.

I want to pay based on groups of 500 listings where each listing = the 13 fields of data.

I'm initially looking to get 500 listings for a flat rate. I'm planning to make multiple awards and If I'm happy with the results and the turnaround time I will make larger awards with select freelancers.

There is a sample file attached for your reference. Please note there are 2 tabs on the spreadsheet.

I have found the best way to find events is to Google "running races CITY, STATE/PROVINCE" (no quotes). If I hire you I will assign you a specific city and event type to search.

I plan on making multiple awards as I want to build my directory quickly. In all I expect to build a directory of 10,000 - 20,000 listings over the next few weeks.

This job requires a high level of accuracy and the ability to follow the specified instructions. It is not for everyone.

If you are interested I will ask you to compile a test sample of 10-20 listings so that you can get a good feel for the job and then I can check the quality and provide feedback to you. It is much easier to conduct a quick sample and fine tune the understanding of the requirement rather than have you spend the time to compile 500 listings and then discover that there was a misunderstanding.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you are interested in being considered, please make your bid, ask any clarifying questions and then if you are still interested then ask me to assign you a city for the test sample. If yo do not ask for the test sample I will assume you have not taken the time to read the instructions and will not make an award to you.

I look forward to working with the chosen freelancers.
