    Hello,

    I have a two sided marketplace site that is targeted to a niche market. In order to get one side (supply), the only way I can think of is to target specific forums where users are hanging out. SEO site ranking would do me no good as of now as I need to first build user base before considering SEO rankings.

    I am thinking of spamming all these forums via private message in order to get the words out in order to get some traffics to the site, then I would also do some referral incentives + other promos that would help with conversion once they go to the site.

    Just curious on how to find these black hat SEO to help me do that, and how they would charge.

    Thanks.

    Truth is this falls into the same category as trying to start a forum or dating website.
    You have to have party A before Party B wants to participate and the perpetual stupidity keeps
    going on and on. Only way to break this cycle is deep pockets for advertising.

    yes, i understand, but i do not have deep pockets, i can only think of spam forum PM at the moment as a way to get the words out.

    how do I accomplish this?

    Thanks.

    If you're going to spam a forum through PM, all I have to say is don't do it on BHW! :)

    lol at veyron, of course not :) I can guarantee

    I am very new to spam / black hat though, so how do I accomplish this? Where can I find spammers who can do it? What is the going rate? How do you judge performance?

    Thanks.

    Because you're asking them to supply something, rather than to buy something of yours, I think you shouldn't be treated too coldly - particularly if you word your PM's well.
    Do the forums have a wanted-to-buy section? You could try posting requests like that...

    why do you want to do that? If you are already know that this is the spamming thing that you are going to process than you should not try it.

    anyone has done this type of service before? I wonder what is the going rate and where to look for.

    Is it OK if I post this request in 'hire a freelancer' sub forum?

    Thanks.

    Yup, you should get plenty of quality replies by posting an ad in the hire-a-freelancer section, and it costs you nothing :)

    Hi tony_d

    I tried to post the 'hire a freelancer' sub forum, but it got blocked. It asked for a donation?

    Can someone advise me why?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: nevermind, apparently the forum blocked some words, it's strange that what I typed were just generic words.

    Forget spamming forums with the private messaging system because people will just get pissed off and not buy anything and
    then to top it all off they will report you and there goes your account. It really is not worth the effort. You could try buying email
    data and trying email inboxing.
