It's early, but we're going to start looking for help for various Black Friday-related tasks on the site. Below you'll find some descriptions of things that we will need help with.

 

If you've helped out in the past, send me a PM and let me know if you can help again this year (and let me know if you can't as well). I'll be contacting those of you who I don't hear from in a few weeks to get your status.

 

If you haven't helped out before, please PM me and let me know which of the items below you'd be interested in helping with along with any related experience/skills you may have.

 

We have 3 tasks that we need help with:

Ad Posting: We need as many people as possible with excellent availability (primarily during the first 3 weeks of November including early mornings and nights) and who have above-average typing skills. You'll be taking the scans of the ads and typing up each item in the ad, selecting the appropriate category, entering price/rebate info, etc... This one requires a little more work but you'll get to see some ads before anyone else. We'll give you the exact format to use so you won't be totally lost.

Ad Linking: We need people to help link the thousands of Black Friday ad items to the product pages on the store web sites. This involves looking at the ad and searching for the same item on that store's web site and pasting that link in a special form. You basically just need to know how to search a store's site using either the item number (if the ad shows it) or the product's name and then copy and paste.

Content Writers: We're looking for those of you who enjoy writing about Black Friday to write articles, guides, interviews, etc... Basically you can come up with your own ideas for pieces, pitch them to me and assuming we don't have something similar, I'll give you the go ahead and you'll see it posted on the site with your name (if you'd like) as the author. You can do as little or as much as you'd like.

 

To make things easier so we don't have more than one person doing the same work, we have a private forum for us all to get together, so if you are chosen you'll get access to that forum where we'll assign tasks and post updates. You won't be alone or feel overwhelmed as we'll hopefully once again have a small army of volunteers this year.

We don't expect you to do this work for free - you will be compensated for your time and efforts at the end of the year based on how much you were able to help out. We typically send gift cards as a thank you, but other arrangements can be made.

 

Those of you who helped with this the last few years are encouraged to help again as you all have done a great job.

If you have any questions, you can PM me as well.

Thanks :D

I've done the ad linking the past couple years and would be happy to do it again. 🙂
