  1. @MarkTVS, this is worrying - please call me at the office on 023 92522434 or email me james@blackballmedia.co.uk and I'll get this sorted today
  2. CDX is less than a week away now - and I'm hoping many of you here will be coming. Farnborough International is THE place for the automotive retail trade to be on June 12, and although all the VIP tickets have been snapped up, the good news is you can still register for free tickets. Here's the top 10 reasons to be at CDX: 1 – The best day you will spend out of your business this year CDX is for the industry, delivered by the industry. We know that it’s a challenging time for many car dealers – that’s why we’ve designed CDX to help you improve your business to meet these challenges and outperform the competition. With best-practice seminars, practical demonstrations and straight-talking advice, a day at CDX will help you return to your business with new ideas, new motivation and refreshed to deliver. 2 – Dealership of the Future, in association with GardX The industry is changing faster than ever. What will the next generation of physical car dealer outlets look like and how do you need to plan in the long term? With the consumer journey and buying process changing faster than ever, new to CDX will be the Dealership of the Future. You’ll be able to get hands-on with some of the latest technology, such as 360-degree imagery, full e-commerce, self-service aftersales and cutting-edge showroom display systems. 3 – Exclusive White Papers from industry-leading businesses This year, each of our four headline partners – Barclays, CarGurus, CitNOW and Cox Automotive – will be sharing research and industry insight exclusively at CDX. Not only this, but they will also be on stage to discuss their findings and answer questions. This insight is designed to help you and your business grow and increase profits. 4 – Free-to-attend best-practice workshops delivered by industry experts This year, CDX will deliver 13 workshops. Covering everything from digital marketing and e-commerce to improving your stock turn and increasing your bottom line, these sessions will deliver expert advice that you can implement in your business straight away. Social media giant Facebook will also be joining us to talk about the art of the deal through social media. 5 – The Live Stage, in association with CarGurus Each year, the Car Dealer Live Stage features some of the biggest names in the industry, sharing their thoughts and opinions on what’s happening in the UK motor industry and what the future holds. At a critical time for the UK automotive industry, these sessions with some of the UK’s top dealer and manufacturer bosses are not to be missed. 6 – Advice from the experts Whatever current challenges your business is up against, CDX is the best place to meet the experts all in one room. With specialists in all areas of running a dealership of any size, CDX is your chance to get their advice for your business face to face. 7 – Dealers’ Den, in association with Cox Automotive This year we are launching the CDX Dealers’ Den. Hosted on the Live Stage, this session will see a group of innovative young companies pitching their product or service to our expert panel and the audience. Our dealers will decide which product deserves to be supported in the coming 12 months of Car Dealer Magazine. Come and see what next-gen products you are likely to be using in the next couple of years. 8 – Networking and Business Hub, in association with CitNOW CDX isn’t just a fantastic place to meet experts and suppliers and get help and advice for your business, it’s also the best place to network with your industry peers. CDX gives you the chance to meet fellow dealers from across the country, share experiences, talk best practice and build future relationships. 9 – Secure your place on Bangers4Ben 2019 Registrations for B4B 2019 open at CDX and will be available on a first come, first served basis. With limited numbers of places and demand growing every year, make sure you visit the Ben team early to secure your place on this legendary event. 10 – IT’S TOTALLY FREE! That’s right – entrance to CDX doesn’t cost a penny for dealers and manufacturers, so sign up for free NOW. Get your tickets by clicking here.
  3. Try this one now - it worked for me: https://issuu.com/blackballmedia/docs/htbacd_multipage
  4. We think Issuu has a ‘bit of a moment’. Try it again today and it should work.
  5. Really glad you enjoyed it! Great to have feedback. I would suggest contacting Lawgistics directly about the above.
  6. Not yet. We thought about it but weren’t sure about demand. The digital issue was the easiest way to publish it now and gauge that. Not ruling it out for the future though Oh no, we’re not heathens
  7. I have those buttons - what platform are you using this on? oh and it’s the gold standard of sausage rolls - Greggs!
  8. That’s a sure fire way to earn yourself a twin pack of sausage rolls*! *disclaimer: sausage rolls may never arrive
  9. Of course! I pay in Greggs sausage rolls deferred for five years pending claw backs of pasties
  10. Morning all You may have noticed in Car Dealer Magazine over the last year we have been running a feature called 'So You Wanna Be A Car Dealer'. We've now collated all the features into one digital magazine designed for those new to the trade. It has hints and tips from the professionals and everything a new dealer needs to know to get started. This idea came as a direct result of this forum - a place where many new dealers arrive when looking for advice. Those new members often post questions in this forum - well, now there's a place they can get everything they need to know. The digital edition called How To Be A Car Dealer is available to be read on all platforms - desktop, mobile or iPad - and costs £9.99. You can find it here: https://issuu.com/blackballmedia/docs/htbacd_multipage I hope it proves of use to those of you looking to start out in the trade. And if it doesn't contain the answers you need, I'm sure those tricky questions can be answered by our experienced members in our forum. Enjoy!

  12. Warned. Ignored. Banned. Let's move on
  13. Right come on. Getting fed up off this petty biting. It's tedious and annoying. I didn't set up this forum for it to become a place to moan at bitch at each other. There's a time and place for that: it's called MailOnline. So, everyone, please think before you type: Will my comment offend someone? Because if it does I'll just ban you and move on. Like I've said before - play nice or go play somewhere else
