I just wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the new editor-in-chief of Dealerscope. I look forward to seeing and meeting you all as soon as possible. Before I do anything else, though, here is my contact info: (631) 427-0604 (office), (516) 477-2665 (mobile) and firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact me as often as you like to share any ideas that will help us in providing you with the best possible information, tools and news coverage to help your business thrive.
While the job of a reporter and editor might seem quite different from that of a retailer, manufacturer, distributor or buying group, our goals are very much the same: yours is to drive more revenue, deeper profits and incremental business. Mine, along with the rest of the Dealerscope staff, is to provide you with the information you need to achieve those goals. Of course, none of this happens in a vacuum. We want your feedback. Anything you think is important to help Dealerscope improve your business is something worth talking about. That includes tips on breaking news, as well as analytical and strategic insights; connections to smart, innovative retailers with ideas and lessons to share; introductions to vendor sales reps and channel chiefs who go above and beyond to help their partners succeed; first looks at cutting-edge products; and a pipeline into industry-wide or specific issues that we need to pay closer attention to.
That information will not only be used to build upon the great industry coverage Dealerscope already provides, but will help us in adding new features, tools and multimedia presentations to www.dealerscope.com. We realize the way you digest news and use information is rapidly changing. Each month, the magazine will continue to be the source the entire industry looks toward to learn how the month’s news impacts your business, which trends are worth exploring, the business strategies worth implementing and the people worth following. Every day, the Web site will do the same.
