Private adverts ("Mutual Aid")

We run private adverts for motorcycles and related items in our monthly magazine The Journal. All our members receive a copy of the magazine by post every month. To place an advert in the magazine is relatively simple and it is free if you are a member (if you are not a member then you can still place an advert but you have to pay £16 per edition - if you intend to place more than one advert then it makes sense to simply join the club and get free adverts of course).

So the rules for placing an advert are:

  • The advert should be less than 70 words long (email addresses and telephone numbers count as 2 words each regardless of punctuation in them) and NEVER as long as 100 words
  • You cannot control the formatting of the text (it will be plain text except the first few words which will be bold - this is automatic)
  • It can be accompanied by ONE digital image which you will be asked to email to the team separately
  • The deadline for acceptance of an advert is the 5th of the month for the following month's edition (that means you need to get it submitted in advance of this so any questions about your submission, and indeed any payment if you are not a member, can be sorted before the 5th)
  • The editorial team's decision about suitability of an advert is final - they also reserve the right to edit the advert wording and/or image.

The following conventions will also be applied (so better you apply them yourself when typing the advert):

  • Your location will be added to the end of the advert in brackets (this is in case people want to offer to collect the item from you - essential for bikes of course)
  • When selling a BMW bike, the model should be the first thing in the listing and you do not need to state "BMW..."
  • The title of the advert will be in bold and will be the first 5 words or up to the first full stop (whichever is shorter)
  • If in doubt, have a look at adverts in the recent Journals and see how they look.

The simplest way to request an advert is to use this form - it is not fool-proof as far as the word count goes but is near enough, the editorial team will then get in touch with you to either confirm which edition your advert will appear in or to clarrify any points:

Your advert

(anything more than 70 likely to be trimmed - absolute max 100)

Your advert will appear roughly like this:


The editorial team will get in touch to ask you to send them a photo by email

Commercial adverts

We have over 3,000 members and we post a copy of our full-colour A4 magazine to them every month. These members are obviously keen on this wonderful make of motorcycle so if your products or services would appeal to them then why not advertise with us.

You can have a graphical advert in the Journal (1/8, 1/4, 1/2 or full page) which is suitable for premium companies or you can run a text-only advert in our Small Business Ads section which is more suited to small businesses. All the magazine adverts can be inserted for any number of editions, the more editions you pre-pay for the better the discount you will attract.

As you can see below we also have adverts on our web site as well as on our Forum site.

All our commercial advertising attracts further discount if you offer a discount to our members. On the whole we try to match the discount you offer (so if you give our members 10% off your services or products then we will give you an extra 10% off your advertising costs for example).

As an added incentive to offer a discount we also run a Member's Discount scheme which is a page or two of the Journal listing those companies that offer discounts. You automatically get an entry in this section if you offer our members a discount (even if you don't take out any other advertising with us).

To find out more contact the marketing secretary by email on marketing@bmwclubuk.net. They will be glad to send you our current rate cards and a digital copy of the latest edition of the Journal.
