    I run an adult amateur forum with about 42,000 members. I have access to all 42,000 emails. Any suggestions on how to target them with some type of product or email offer? I'd love to partner with someone to turn this into money. Let me know.

    I would be interested, just can't PM you at the moment because I haven't posted 15 times yet.

    Wait, there's almost no reason why you should have to resort to sending them something via email if you have 42,000 people registered on a forum. If the forum is active, you can do much better just using the forum as a way to promote an offer.

    However, ultimately, since what you are looking for is a partner, this belongs in the Joint Venture section of the forum and not here.

    Fark, with 42,000 members I'd be hiring a coder to promote Webmaster referrals on the site in the same way that BHW does. Get them promoting the sites you promote and get a % of their sales!!!

    Sorry about posting this in the wrong forum. Not sure If i need a partner or if I should hire someone. I built this forum up and I make a little bit of money off ads but there has to be more potential!

    Usually, when we're talking about any kind of emailed database or a forum with an email database, you have to always think of filtering.

    Simply blasting your members with generic emails is not going to cut it.

    If anything, your brand is going to suffer and the responsiveness of your forum might run into problems.

    I would suggest that you send out an email that would automatically give your forum members some sort of benefit.

    Maybe give out a free book, a discount coupon, whatever it takes.

    The key here is to get their attention to take action on your offer and in return for that, they allow themselves to be filtered by other lists that you are running.

    This way, you can figure out which niches they're interested in.

    The more you filter your list, the higher likelihood you will make money off your forum.

    That's how it works.

    Simply spamming your 42,000 members is not going to cut it.
