Social Networking Site

Posted by Anonymous on 125 Points
Hello there,

I am curious if anyone here has had any experience, or is aware of a good firm that can assist in the launch of a niche social networking site. (Yes I know... The world needs another SNS right?)

The site itself is not currently ready for launch, but will be very soon. I've already put into motion many of the "buzz marketing" plans that I have learned from various sources, but I also feel it would be prudent to get assistance from an expert in viral marketing as well.

Viral videos, forum marketing etc. etc. would all be welcome. Thank you for any recommendations.
