)-- B2B networking community TheWholesaleForums.co.uk is this month celebrating passing 100,000 registered members. The community first launched in July, 2004 and set out to provide an independent and impartial venue for buyers and suppliers to congregate and network with each other. Aside from the networking benefits of bringing like-minded folks together, the community prides itself on offering advice and guidance on any number of business issues including; start-up, importing, product sourcing, retailing and much more.
Today, the platform fosters the needs of over 100,000 members and houses a trade marketplace where buyers and sellers come together to do business on a variety of product niches.
According to Jon Borillo, Marketing Manager for The Wholesale Forums; “Our platform user-base continues to grow by 20 percent quarterly, mostly online-based retailers, wholesalers and drop shippers. About 75 percent of our members are based in the United Kingdom, with the rest coming from the United States, Australia, Canada, France, China and other countries across the globe.”
Borillo continued; “The Wholesale Forums is enjoying record traffic with over 200,000 unique visitors and excess of 1.6 million page views each month. Word continues to spread in the industry that our free networking and advice community is worthy of every trader's arsenal.”
Borillo believes a major contributing factor to the platform's continued success is the deep seeded ethos that has been fostered by CEO Anthony Trollope and his team of community staff. “We are super fortunate to have so many members who give up their time so graciously to help others. This in turn encourages reciprocal gestures, a life-cycle that any successful online community needs in order to survive, let alone continue to grow,” commented Borillo.
The Wholesale Forums features a comprehensive in-house marketplace where buyers and suppliers can do business within a vetted environment where everyone looks out for each other. Such products as games consoles, smart phones, laptops, cosmetics, clothing, home appliances, sporting, and miscellaneous goods are all available in wholesale quantities.
