lets see them. ill tune in

BMW should select me and I will document it and post it up on here.
the forum is a powerful engine would argue the demographic of this forum would be more of a value to BMW then most of the influencers follows IMO. yes maybe some may have more followers then this forum but I think BMW should use this forum and others more then they do.

It's my personal opinion this forum is being used a lot more than you might think

Iirc the M2 was launched on periscope , this appears to be ready for IG, bmw has a YouTube channel.. #UDE, they are definitely maintaining a presence in many areas .. years ago it was only golf tournaments and Susan G Komen ..

I was coming from a position that BMW should invest marketing money into the forum (bimmerpost directly) and all of us forum members. Yes I agree with you that BMW def uses this forum (lurking), I know first hand of that, and other social media, I just think that partnering with bimmerpost would help them more than using influencers who are not enthusiast who have a base of most likely none BMW enthusiast. Again though I am not a marketing pro, so I have to assume, the pros know what they are doing, just feel like they are missing a large chunk of opportunity here.

would be cool to see BMW partner with Jason and do some cool stuff with a select few forum members (maybe you ) I think that would be very beneficial for BMW as well as the forum. If they do pick you dont forget about me for the +1
