Forum website build and marketing

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$1500 - $3000

Project Description:
I have a domain [url removed, login to view] and I want a website developing that is a forum for people interested in drones.

I will invest money into marketing to make this site a popular destination and if the website creator can help with SEO and marketing, even better.
I am quite an experienced internet person but I am seeking some 'fresh blood' to help me with this project.

Here is an example of a very successful and very high traffic website [url removed, login to view] see [url removed, login to view]
This could be one to use for stimulation for what I want. The site will generate revenue from advertisers so you also need to know how I can manage all this. See [url removed, login to view]
I have a VPS server runnings Parallels to host site.
Note that rcgroups uses vBulletin,
However I am not fussed about what Forum software is chosen, so long as the user experience is perfect - hence you should know about Forums if you are interested in this project.
Any purchases of licenses (e.g. vBulletin) will be paid for outside of the successful freelancers payment. The budget can be negotiated for additional work as required. I would be keen to give more work to the same person to make this a success. I also have more projects.

Skills required:
Forum Posting, Forum Software, SEO, vBulletin, Website Design
