This forum is extremely active, is the premier meeting place online for the people who are prospective buyers in this niche. While he does not push his product very much in the forums, the existence of the product, as a general recomendation of the forum owner, is well known by the members.
I guess my question is....
How effective and how complex would an operation like that be to run?
I am eyeballing a new niche at the moment, one of the big search terms for the niche is "____ _____ forum"
There are 2-3 forums in the niche, but they are all generic healthboards thats have subsections about this niche.
I am wondering if it would be a good endeavor to try and mimic this other forum that I know of, although I would be starting as an affiliate, and adding people to my list (rather than be the product creator). Eventually I might move to product creation in this niche, as the only products I have found in it only seem to be of average quality.
