How do I write a good Gig for freelancers?

I asked a question in the Experts Exchange topic.  If you're not following that topic, that is fine, but your comments are appreciated.

Go to https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28989563/How-do-I-write-a-good-Gig-for-freelancers.html

Thank you.

(PS the comments are important, so if you have some good feedback please make sure it goes on the question I asked and not just here in Groups.)

That is not what I am talking about. Not in the public thread.  Behind the scenes coaching by other professionals that have made a living by creating or working from proposals in the line of work.

This is phenomenal, and I applaud this effort.

The information I am gathering is to present a consistent public message that is supported by Experts Exchange and so on down to each and every member.

3 topics selected.  1 is for a newer vendor and the other 2 are proposed topics. These topics are probably not going to attract people unless they specifically are looking for all gigs or go to the gigs page.  TA's do not have access to Gigs so we can't assist here.  In a regular QA question, we would adjust the topics.

It will not work that way.  If it did, you could just point to Jim's articles along with the help topic http://support.experts-exchange.com/customer/portal/articles/756544-how-to-succeed-at-ee-as-an-asker and call it a day.  

Most people looking for help, need help just spitting out what they mean.  We have many questions that say "X, Y and Z" but they meant "A, B and C".  A patient expert that is well versed in the topic can help extract that info (and sometimes it feels like pulling teeth).

As a quiet observer of every single Gig and every single comment, I empathize.
