    Hello. i am new to this forum and i am here looking for some suggestions and advice for my new business which i am going to start. It's generally a website for selling digital goods like music, videos, ebooks, etc and also there will be part for affiliates who can monetize their websites with this affiliate products posted by sellers. But i have a lot of doubts that this kind of business works or not ? so please help me with your suggestions.

    Hi worker1990, thanks for joining and posting on our business forum. I feel that you would have a tough challenge ahead of you setting up a business like that, which would in effect be competing with websites such as iTunes and Amazon. Or perhaps you are considering targeting a particular niche and becoming a specialist provider in that market?

    Maybe you could please reply back to let us know if you are planning a general digital goods website or if you will be focusing on a particular niche market? If you are going to focus on a niche maybe you could please give some idea as to the niche you will be targeting?

    Thanks!

    Worker 1990 welcome to BAF. Please state your worries and as fergal stated "please give some idea as to the niche you will be targeting?" this would really help in getting feedback on your particular issue.
