We are creating an auction site where we will release items to bid on (possibly one item at a time or multiple items at a time). Users earn bid credits by performing various tasks (such as registering with us, referring a friend, viewing an offer, signing up to receive emails from third parties, etc). Credits are not purchased.
We are playing off of the farmer concept since we feel like it is a fun way to describing doing work to earn bids (farming for bids).
The goal of the first page is to create a "How it Works" overview with a signup form. The page should quickly explain how the site works in simple steps and drive the user to sign up.
The main navigation menu on top should include 2 menu items: Sign Up & How it Works. There should also be a footer with Contact Us and copyright notice.
Steps for how it works:
-Earn Bid credits for doing simple things/chores/tasks (like reading email, referring friends, etc).
-Use your bid credits to bid on cool auction items to win.
Absolutely no cost for the user and user is never asked to purchase anything.
