There are certain tasks that require a substantial amount of work performing dull activities. Researching a collection of products for a specific theme or holiday can be considered one of these cases for many people. Companies can use online websites like to allow people with more free time to do these tasks for them. This allows the company to not have to hire new individuals, which is especially important in these dire economic times. Moreover, companies can offer higher cash incentives to get certain projects accomplished. Once the pay seems reasonable enough, then the work will be adequate. If the pay rate is too low, it appears as if the company does not care about the worker and the work will be poor. Hence, if one wants to get a certain amount of people to research what type of products are used on holidays and for particular themes carefully, then the compensation must be fair for his/her time.

A solver could research into and create a list of products and decorations for a given national holiday. For example a solver could create a list of practical and affordable decorations and adornments for a Halloween party, they could be listed by the place you can purchase them from, price or time taken for delivery, and then forwarded to the seeker. Similarly a seeker could list the best reviewed places to buy Christmas food, from the turkey to the Christmas cake allowing the seeker to get the best quality available. Finally then solver could research the best place to get costumes for a themed party and list them by either price or quality based on the original task provided by the seeker.
