    Hey all,

    I'm looking to hire someone who is able to get a newly established niche forum off the ground and keep developing it until it reaches a certain stage.

    NB! PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH MARKETING NEW FORUMS IS AN *ABSOLUTE MUST*. IT IS NOT EASY TO GET A BRAND NEW FORUM OFF THE GROUND SO DO NOT APPLY IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW THIS KING OF THING WORKS.

    Alright, "disclaimer" out of the way, here's what the whole thing is about:

    NICHE

    While I'm not disclosing the niche in public, it's related to multimedia, the market demand is pretty high and competition is extremely low (there's one other forum in this niche but they haven't done almost any promoting and don't have many members). Also - the domain name is fantastic.

    YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
    * Finding initial content and posting it, in order to get the forum off the ground.
    * Organising continuous seed-posting (you can do a fair bit yourself but it's also OK to hire paid posters etc. in case you find a quality source that doesn't cost too much).
    * Once the forum is "ready for actual members" i.e. has about 50 or so threads and 200 or so posts (should take apprx. 1 week), get the word out.
    * Continuously promote the forum through a) Other websites of our niche b) SEO and make sure there's a constant growth.

    FROM MY SIDE, I WILL
    * Run some promotions once the forum looks decent (the seed posts are in etc.). I have a few sites on the same niche so I can drive quite a bit of targeted traffic - but YOU need to make sure that there's enough content for this traffic before I start running the campaigns.
    * Organise all management and moderation aspects.
    * Pay you a by-weekly salary, given that all targets (which we'll set together with you) are met.

    Important! While I'm very flexible with regards to compensation (and willing to compensate very well in case of fantastic results) there will be absolutely NO prepayments or payments for "work done". I pay for results, and only results. If you're not happy with this then please do not apply.

    That's it for now.

    Hit me a PM if you have any questions or if you want to apply. When applying, please include a) info about your previous experience with promoting forums; b) your expectation regarding compensation.

    Cheers,
    Bryan

    Looks like I've succeeded in making this sound as scary as possible :) (judging by the fact that I only got one reply).

    Just to clarify - even though I do pay only for results (I've quite enough of "experts" who work on pre-payments and then "give this SEO thing a try"), the targets that we set will be realistic, and we'll set them together with you so you don't have to worry about me saying "10k new members next week or you won't get paid" :)

    And yes, I'm still looking for the right candidate.

    Bryan

    Would you mind PMing me with a little more info? I've ran a game exploits forum, as well as a proxy webmaster forum before, so I want to look into this a little more :)
