The Wholesale Forums is an amazing resource for e-commerce merchants, and an excellent community to be a part of! – Denise Hogue, Product Marketing Manager at Terapeak
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 July 2012
The Wholesale Forums UK is celebrating its 8th year anniversary as the leading online networking community and advice forum for wholesalers, dropshippers, importers, eBay sellers, and online retailers.
The community first launched in July 2004 and set out to provide an independent venue for buyers and suppliers to gather and network with each other. “The Wholesale Forums is an amazing resource for e-commerce merchants, and an excellent community to be a part of! When I'm looking for ideas or have a question driving me crazy, the forum is one of the first places I check" shares Denise Hogue, Product Marketing Manager at Terapeak.
According to SaleHoo Education Specialist Alice Delore; "Online retailers in both the UK and overseas are fortunate to have such a wonderful resource to help them grow their eCommerce businesses".
In October 2011, the community reached 100,000 members and continues to grow by 20% every quarter. Whilst mostly geared towards being a European platform, about 25% of users come from United States, Australia, Canada, India and China.
In celebrating the community’s anniversary, TWF launched competitions encouraging community members and Facebook fans to share the best business advice they have ever received. Prizes include a brand new iPad loaded with Brightpearl’s Point of Sale software, an Amazon Kindle, Terapeak 30-day Trials, SaleHoo Stores & Membership Packages, and Amazon vouchers.
Members and non-members are welcome to join via the forum or through the Facebook contest app.
Sponsoring the anniversary competition are ecommerce industry leaders Brightpearl, SaleHoo, and Terapeak. "Brightpearl are delighted to be part of the Wholesale Forum's 8th Anniversary competition. Over those years, TWF has helped many retailers and wholesalers to find advice and information to enable their businesses to grow and be successful. This is a subject close to our hearts so we were keen to support their birthday celebrations" says Penelope Edwards, Online Marketing Manager at Brightpearl.
The competition runs until July 31, 2012 with the announcement of winners scheduled on August 5, 2012. For more information, visit http://www.thewholesaleforums.co.uk
