  • Why UnitedBimmer.com?

  • As long-standing and well respected vendors within the BMW community, we realize that you are bombarded all the time by requests from “new” and start-up forums promising the world in return for your money to sponsor the forum. This is not the same.

    Have you found that:
    Your sales threads and announcements get lost in the clutter?
    Vendors aren’t proofed carefully enough and wind up ruining your new product announcement with frivolous activity?
    Forum members unfairly bias other members or guests against your products?
    Your ability to communicate with members to make sales, solve issues, or provide general information is negatively affected by a few “bad apples”?
    If you thought yes to any of the above, please read on…

    Unlike other big forums where your sales dollar doesn’t travel very far, where many flea-market style vendors affect your business, and where members with hidden agendas inaccurately and unfairly attack sponsors, UnitedBimmer is dedicated to ensuring the safe interaction between members and vendors.

    is different because it’s a forum run by people that know how to take care of sponsors. There are multiple administrators that can monitor the forum far more diligently. On this forum, you’ll have the administrative team and resources on your side with minimal up front expenses. While the forum isn’t “new” like some others with very few members, it is relatively up and coming and we hope to include all the vendors in our overall plans to expand the forum (which benefits all). We want you the vendors to become our partners – and as such we are offering you a “ground floor” opportunity to help grow the “family” together. Our moderator/admin staff has first hand experience with running/managing the largest BMW forums on the web and can easily scale to account for any future growth.

    Your Needs
    As a vendor, your needs are the most important. Your needs to have your products become more visible. Your needs to be more interactive with the users without a threat from unfair and misguided interference. Your needs to have more control over your product information distribution. These are important to us as much as they are to you.
