I am building an authority type site promoting tablet computers currently the site is www.whatsthebesttablet.com. I am use to building niche 2-3pages word press sites, but haven’t built a review type site before, the plan is to review the top five tablets initially and related accessories. I will have an opting list on the site and drive traffic to the site trough forum marketing, eBooks etc. Can anyone advised on the best solution for this: templates, site layout, social media insertion, feeds etc.
This is a huge request, and one beyond the scope of pretty much any volunteer-driven forum. You're asking for a consult, which in the real world would cost you some serious money, and rightly so.
My suggestion would be to begin putting something together, and then either coming back with specific, focused questions about specific elements of your design, or to submit your effort in the Website Review forum
