Dealer Business Journal provides used-vehicle professionals with
timely, informative industry news, analysis and expert advice
empowering them with the knowledge and expertise necessary for
their financial success.
Dealer Business Journal is a monthly used-vehicle industry trade
publication that focuses on the financial interests of used-vehicle
dealers, both franchised and independent. Our monthly magazine
has a special focus on the buy here-pay here, subprime and specialty
finance segments of a $345 billion a year industry.
The magazine provides cutting-edge ideas, market intelligence
and timely information to automotive retail professionals to
operate their businesses more profitably and efficiently. We
believe information and expert analysis in a coherent, concise
format empowers dealers to make lucrative business decisions.
One of our expanded sections is now known as the Dealer Coach
Central. This is an expanded look at our Leedom Market Indicators.
These market indicators provide a benchmark measurement for the
conventional retail, special finance and buy here-pay here sectors
of the used vehicle industry. This section is designed to help
you measure your business and identify areas for improvement.
As always, you will find these indicators in every issue.
Currently we reach a focused group of more than 20,000 of the most
outstanding automotive retail professionals across the country —
at the decision-maker level. We count among our numerous resources
experts in automotive journalism, dealer training, financing,
industry economics and automotive law.
Dealer Business Journal in the coming months is planning an
update of its existing product. We have hired full time staff
to oversee the implementation of some terrific ideas. We will
continue to provide insightful market analysis from such
industry leaders as: Chris Leedom,
Chuck Bonanno, Emily Beck,
Tom Hudson, Keith Whann, Jim Jackson and many others. Peter
Salinas will provide first-rate news coverage and editing.
He is a 20-year veteran automotive journalist. We have a
new look forthcoming as well as special focus issues planned.
We believe that information is power. The Dealer Business
Journal is intended to be a leading source of information.
You will not find any window dressing or feel-good stories —
just real strategies, market analysis and tools to help you
maximize the performance and profitability of your dealership.
