You may have noticed that the April 2018 issue was our 19th annual Reader’s Choice issue. If you’re a long-time reader of BodyShop Business, you know that this is the issue where we give you, the reader, a say in what articles we publish. We ask you to submit an industry-related question you’ve been eagerly seeking an answer to, and we find an expert to answer it – and award you with $50!
We put an ad in BodyShop Business almost 20 years ago that read, “Your vote counts! Ever wonder who plans the articles that go into BodyShop Business? Wonder no more. It’s your turn – your turn to plan the articles we run.”
Why did we do that? Well, I wasn’t here then, but I suspect it’s because we covet you, the reader, and what you want to read about. I can travel to all the conferences and trade shows I want to learn about the hottest trends and most controversial topics in the collision repair industry, but if those aren’t the things you want to hear about, then all that work doesn’t amount to a hill of beans!
I implore you to read the stories in this year’s Reader’s Choice issue, and if a question of your own comes to mind, visit bodyshopbusiness.com/readers-choice/ and fill out the form. We’d love to hear from you!
