    I have a car audio niche Amazon affiliate site that I don't know how to get traffic to, because I wouldn't be able to help people on audio forums (don't know much about the product) and thus get traffic. Ideas?

    Join an audio forum you don't plan on promoting to and ask them general questions about car stereos in order to learn about your niche.

    Paying someone is also feasible, but it's better to learn about the niche.

    Anything you want your website to be about, you have to learn or at least research. Read other reviews on your product and read some general articles on the subject

    Just learn it yourself if you don't want to pay someone to write for you.

    Outside of forums, try social media. You can repost and report on news on Twitter. Drive traffic from Instagram with car audio memes and etc. You can automate both of those, and the automated engagement potentially can drive traffic.

    Also try interviewing industry influencers and experts, then feature that interview on your site, then post about it on a forum.

    Find good YouTube videos that don't have a lot of views, post them with commentary, not an in-depth discussion, but a "how cool is this! Look at the subs bump!" Sort of stuff, work in a few keywords.
    Find a few car audio magazines and do a recap of the article with a "no-follow" link that opens as a new article. Would be a good place to toss in some Amazon links.
    This would build some good content for you to share around.

    My unrelated question: why start a site about something that you have no idea about the product or even how to get traffic?

    Get a couple audiobooks learn the lingo, learn the products, serve the people. Being professional about something is always more valuable than being passionate despite what people might teach to the contrary.
