    My plan is simple; use multiple methods on the forum and direct the audience to YouTube. But I just don't know where to start.

    Option A
    Going into the tech review niche. On the one hand it's very competitive but It's easier to advertise because you would know exactly who to target and which places to go to.

    Option B
    No specific niche, just content that's focused solely on going viral for example buzzfeed, 9gag, Ladbible. This one will allow me to get videos out faster since I can do a lot of copying content.

    You should list the pros and cons for each, from your own opinion, then decide on one. Because it sort of depends which of the two niches your skills are best suited.

    They're both very similar in terms of the skills needed. Even when looking at the pros and cons it's hard to decide. I guess I'll just have to try one.

    You have to check compatiton. You dont want to deal with someone already owned that niche.

    I vote for option A
    It seems to be more of a business model, even though it will be competitive you could carve out a niche within tech reviews for yourself that may be less competitive.
    Good luck

    In order to make money and succeed in this business, you have to be devoted and you have to enjoy the work. Pick whichever one interests you. If you pick a niche you don't like, chances are you'll give up half way through. Think first about enjoying the work and then the money will follow.

    I would say go with some niche related scheme,you'll have more traffic as well as good for your website too.:)
    Option A is good.

    Why not trying both? A is saturated but with the right approach it could be monetized. B looks easy but the audience is hard to convert.

    This is the biggest mistake internet marketers make, working on more than one thing at a time. Its a newbie mistake.

    Do one thing until it succeeds or you decide the idea is not feasible. Especially when you are starting out.
