    Maybe this is sort of a long shot --

    I have a website and a specialized suite of products that i offer. They're very high demand for a certain small specialized segment of the population and fairly expensive (300-700 to start up and $75/month). My business is relatively new (as the demand was created by events that happened this past april)


    The problem is that nearly all of the websites that cater to my target consumer (mainly forum type websites) have refused to take advertising from me. I guess you would call my site relatively black hat or at least grey hat if thats a thing.

    So basically, im looking for someone to market my website. I will consider all proposals, but will give a lot more credibility to people who are willing to work on a pay-for-performance basis rather than a flat upfront fee.

    The most important thing is that this isnt something that can be marketed like acai berries or penis pills. My target clients are serious people who use my product to help them make their living in a very hostile environment and theyre not going to be willing to work with someone who uses blatant spam (im not trying to insult anyone... just a fact)

    anyway, if anyone is interested in helping out, shoot me a PM and we can chat about compensation and strategies and what you have to offer. Like i said, its really not my field, so im wide open to ideas. That said, i barely have time to deal with all of my clients right now so in finding someone for marketing, i would prefer someone who can help me in all dimensions.

    Hi,

    The best way to do fast and effective marketing is bulk e mail campaign. This will increase your reach to customers more efficiently. If you want more details add me on skype at vivekc84.

    Your post looks intriging, but I don't think you will find many that want to work on that pay structure in advertising. Simply because there are so many variables that could lead to an unsuccessful marketing campaign.

    Yeah, thats why i said its negotiable:)...

    Basically, i am looking at a significant but very narrow segement of an already specialized population and I am frozen out of advertising in 99.9% of the websites that service that population(i can share more info with anyone who is interested privately). So I am willing to pay for someone up front who can convince me they have a plan to get me results. But to do so its going to take what i suspect are fairly unconventional methods. A bulk mail campaign as mentioned above, for example, would not only not get me any new clients -- there are a few current clients who might leave if they heard about me using that sort of advertising just based on it being unprofessional.
