Welcome to the New Year
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(o), 516-477-2665(c) and firstname.lastname@example.org. Use them often to share any ideas you have that will help us in providing you with the best information, tools and industry news coverage possible.
While the job of reporter and editor might seem quite different from that of a retailer or vendor, 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 their job descriptions 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 multi-media presentations to www.dealerscope.com We realize the way you digest news and use information is rapidly changing. We’ll be continuing to update our already growing Web site to give you each day the tools you need to conduct business more efficiently and profitably. We’ll continue to make the site as interesting and fun as possible, including more video and photo presentations for a behind-the-scenes look at what your colleagues and competitors are up to.
