So, I was thinking about this again, and compare this to the HAMB Alliance (any hot rodders familiar with the Jalopy Journal site know what I'm talking about). A few benefits of membership there:
- vendor discounts (BTW - this doesn't have to be limited to Scooter shops - maybe other goods and services offered by LCUSA members can be included?)
- free advertising for HAMB Alliance members (shops and individuals offering goods and services) - when offering a discount to other Alliance members
- seller/buyer mediation between MEMBERS on their classifieds site. I understand making the classifieds public on FB, but I think that this extra level of protection is valuable
- they have a "pay it forward" section of the classifieds on the member site. I know I have extra lambretta crap I'd give away to other LCUSA members who need it. Maybe we can add this to the forums, and use it to promote/market membership?
