Research leading software providers in U.S.

Posted by Mitchell H.



Due date
Monday, 10th Jun 2013
I'm looking for someone who is a great researcher that can do the following software research project for me:

- Create a list of 30-50 popular SOFTWARE/WEBSITE verticals/industries in the U.S. with big market appeal and popular websites that lead each industry. Examples of the industries include: real estate buying ([Content Moderated] ), holiday house rentals ([Content Moderated] ), car classifieds ([Content Moderated] ), restaurant reviews ([Content Moderated] ), etc

- For each industry you list (remember, a minimum of 30, ideally 50), research to find the leader in that industry in the U.S. and also research to see the leader (if any) for that industry in Australia. For example, with the holiday house rentals industry, [Content Moderated] is the leader in the U.S. and [Content Moderated] is the leader in Australia

- For each industry that has a leader in Australia (such as the [Content Moderated] example above), research that company's details include: year started, number of employees, office location(s), money raised, revenue, number of customers - you can find a lot of this information on LinkedIn but will need to use your research skills to get most of this

- Create a spreadsheet to fill in all of the details with these colums: Industry/Vertical, U.S. Leader, Australian Leader, Employees, Office Location(s), Money Raised, Revenue, Number Of Customers

That's it. Thanks for reading. Please only show interest if you "get" the software space and are confident you can research 30-50 popular software/website verticals or industries on your own.

Hello Mitch, Happy to help you ! This task definitely does involve a lot of online research and most of my time is spent online. I am an IT professional and I can use my googling skills to complete this to meet your expectations !
If you have any further questions, or would care for anymore examples that prove my capability to complete this task both well and quickly, don't hesitate to ask.

but ideally could stand to learn a little more about the major players in the online marketplace. Fortunately, if I'm selected the key elements in this task appear to be designed to provide just that. If you would care to review my knowledge of both commerce and ability to complete tasks both accurately and efficiency, please refer to my reviews.

Thank you for your consideration whilst assigning this task.
Hi Mitch,

I would love to help you out on this task! I actually really enjoy research based tasks, managing to elicit odd sense of satisfaction from being able to simultaneously uncover knowledge and educate myself. I wouldn't have an issue finishing this task by the due date, as I tend to get a little single-minded when delving into tasks such as this. In relation to the software space, I understand the structure quite well,
