json formatting problems

I'm trying to do some customization with a 3rd party app and it requires json.  I was wondering if someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong.  
Currently have the following.

  "contact" :
    {"contactName"           : "name" , 
"contactFirstName"      : "FirstName" , 
"contactReportsToId"    : "ReportsToId" , 
"contactDescription"    : "Description" , 
"contactEmail"          : "Email" ,
"contactMaster"         : "AccountId" ,
"contactMasterHierarchy"    : "ParentId"

I'm receiving the following error message.
Unexpected character ('{' (code 123)): was expecting double-quote to start field name at [line:1, column:3]
I'm an admin, not a developer.  I have no clue what I'm supposed to do.

Thanks in advance for your help!

It is important to know the json format that the 3rd party app accepts. I think it depends on what structure they follow. If they have document links, go though them and soemwhere you may find json request format.
