The Best News In PDR, Dent Techs Magazine is on the Collision Magicians Platform
With: Tim Chase, Editor/Founder of
Dent Techs Magazine
Collision Magicians is proud to announce the best news in the PDR world – Dent Techs Magazine, can now be found on our website!
In an attempt to fill our platform with informative and educational content for professionals and our consumers, it was a natural fit to add the digital magazine to our team. We had chat with Tim Chase the editor/founder of the magazine to try and give insight to why we believe this is a great fit for the platform.
We started easy by asking him what gave him the idea to start the magazine?
“One factor that brought the magazine to life was watching over a thousand Dent Techs from around the world sharing their past repairs with each other on forums and groups unseen by the public. So many talented dent techs and they seem to be stuck in a groove of sharing the art of PDR with each other.”
We then asked what readers could expect when reading the magazine, Tim replied;
“‘You can find anything industry related in the magazine. From dent tools to dent repair software, dent tech online marketing tools, industry relatednews, hail damaged areas, dent techs that have made the news in special ways, directory of techs around the world, videos related to PDR, online blog related news, PDR training, online training and even techs that are doing some good deeds in their areas.”
Through its advertising opportunities Dent Techs Magazine has created a platform ideal for launching new products within the PDR industry. One example is our launch campaign for Dent Light. Tim Chase and his team helped us spread the word to thousands of professionals and businesses, letting them know that Dent Light was available on the AppStore. They launched our press release on all the popular social platforms, and put our brand in front of hundreds of thousand professionals, businesses, and prospects. They also helped us manage the social media feedback that flooded in because of it – what more could you ask for?
When asked about if he had a favourite story so far, Tim said:
“I think our most popular and favourite story since we launched, is our coverage of a huge hail storm in Kentucky”.
Luke Linville ran a small used car lot with his son, who unfortunately had just past away a week prior to the hail storm, and on top of that Luke himself had recently been diagnosed with cancer!
“We launched an online call-out to dent techs that were willing to help Luke, and we had a great response. Kent Row and his team, and also Tony Hawkins with his guys, headed out to Madison County Kentucky and started working to help repair all the damage – and out of the kindness of their hearts, they did it all for free.”
On the idea of a printed copy of his magazine, Tim says:
“Thoughts of a printed version are always a possibility and we have given it consideration. Advertisers and editors are what really puts a magazine together. As our magazine grows, the demand for a hardcover may grow and we will see what happens”
Since its first publishing in January 2015, Dent Techs Magazine is now seen in over 98 countries and growing, quickly becoming the go-to resource for consumers, professionals and businesses of the Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) world, and with stories like Luke Linville, it’s easy to see this digital magazine is the best news in PDR and that’s why we are glad to have them on the team.
