Social media account improvement. For instance, some of the social media accounts need you to interact well, before posting your own links or articles. It would need someone to go through other people's posts and comment appropriately to build up "goodwill".

some questions first.
Is this aimed at agencies & marketers (who would order, then resell), or at general public (in which case prices would be higher).
For instance, i wouldn't want to order services from a place where my clients would also have access to & compare costs w my services.

in any case, here are my needs.
1) facebook ad images and templates to easily edit.
2) more advanced wordpress needs - like troubleshooting & repair of site, creating child themes, etc.
3) helping establish systems and processes for various tasks, and writing process documents for business
4) various prospecting gathering of business owner info, and emailing them

Thanks

I have thousands of images that need tagging and categorising. Right now there's about 6000 and every month there will be a load more (hundreds, not thousands).

If by data entry you mean adding content to sites, selecting images and adding tags then, yes please.

The biggy though would be for the client to have the ability to provide a video screen cap showing a task that can be emulated over and over again and charged on an hourly basis.

How about doing seo, adwords, and facebook ads unless of course you already do these, I just didn't see them listed.

Would this service be similar to ODesk where the worker logs in and their work time is captured?

What about developing software?
Some little pieces of software to be developed for someone,
to become their products could be a good idea.

We could use someone to ingrate all our social media accounts (blog,fb,tw,pin,etc.) so when we post a blog, it auto distributes to all of our social media accounts.  We have fours sites and getting it all working seems more based on luck than technology.

Very interesting concept, one of the things I have struggled with is in finding dependable micro task management, most of the services you see today are focused on filling an hourly wage concept, which frankly is just not feasible for most, (most) consumers, you either have to purchase 24 hour services, (which also very frankly is dubious at best) when all you really need is a set of specific tasks to be completed in a nominal amount of time, I received the email this morning and it struck me that this is something that is a big problem in a lot of places both on and off line,   (I have a friend who is an older man who has worked by the hour his entire life, which to me is like talking to an alien, because my entire life has been spent as an businesspreneur, lemonade stand, sold grit door to door, (grit used to be a magazine, newspaper sold years ago, ok long story shorter,)  the idea of hiring someone to do something by the hour is foreign and alien to me, in the construction business its just as strange if your in the business of contracting a job you do not go to the customer and tell them your not sure how many hours it will take to get the job done but you can schedule 24 hours a day until the job is done.   Stay with me, there is a pay off,  You see my neighbor does not know how to estimate the costs associated with bidding on a job, so he still works by the hour but all the customers want to pay by the job and most of them are willing to pay more money than what a by the hour job would pay, )))

Seems to me that unless you have an extremely conceptualized idea here you may not see the kind of success that perhaps your hoping to see.   Just a thought.

I agree that the image tagging (meta data editing) would be ideal.

Also, would be nice to install my own version/installation of Wordpress. meaning that I already have all of the settings I need completed on the new install, and if you could copy a version of that over for me, I would love to see that done.

Hi Josh and members, most of you know me as HoneyJo here, (Honey-Jo on learnfromjon), and  I have actually never made a living on line. I joined learnfromjon to change that! Have made a some good affiliate sales from my sites, odd jobs from other forum members, other than that notta~ :'(

I mostly write for others and preform other task 'accounting/bookkeeping/secretarial/word processing/office flunky' jobs from my own site or O'Desk. Earning some money, however not what I would like to make!

•   I need to have someone 'trustworth' who could check my sites for 'inode' problems from time to time they have not been being backed up by Hostgator because of this error! Not a ‘biggee’ for most people, but it is for me!

Some services that I think would be a good idea to offer are:

On-site SEO optimization, restructuring, link checking, etc...
Content marketing development plans - keywords with site structure layout
Social Media Management - answering questions on Facebook, Twitter, etc...

These are just a few that I came up with right off the top of my head.

I would like to see these task choices:

+ Create logo and bottom banner strip for PowerPoint presentations
+ Create redirect links for affiliate products using my dedicated domain name as link shortener: mydomain.com/product
+ Install and configure third-party autoresponder and opt-in using my email provider
+ Schedule and submit my Kindle book promotions through my list of activated FB groups on weekly basis
+ Configure my membership site for free and paid viewing of my online courses
+ Research and create a monthly report with the top 20 book titles in 5 book categories and all their sub-categories
+ Find and download 15 RF photos every month that I could use for niche blog posts
+ Research Public Domain topics

HoneyJo, just a thought, but the issue you are facing is that of outgrowing your hosting. Chances are that a more cost effective solution for your specific case would be to upgrade your hosting within Hostgator's 'universe'.
