I presume that many of us are aware of the existance of Smartimes Magazine an on-line e-zine dedicated to all things having to do with smart cars and their owners. (www.smartimesmagazine.com).
You may be like me when I found that the bulk of the articles refer to Europe and markets other than the USA and Canada I was a bit dissapointed. However they have offices now in the USA and are very interested in a broader focus that includes all of us and our exciting new market for smart cars.
As a subscriber you can have your owners group or club promoted on their site as we have done at The Central Florida Smart Car Club.
I contacted them regarding our recent 1st Anniversary Event and they were excited to send a reporter asnd a photographer to our event and they are writing a feature article for the March Edition with text and pictures which I am really looking forward to seeing.
I also sent them information on an upcomming event we have planned for May and they have put up a very nice announcement of that event under their events section.
They are very interested in the US market and are actively seeking submissions for articles about the cars, clubs, events and owners. They are open to submissions for a "Readers Rides" section where they could show pictures of modified or customized smart cars and their owners.
Simply stated we have an opportunity to get our cars, our activities and our owners highlighted in their magazine.
I think its pretty cool to have a magazine dedicated specifically to our cars and encourage you to check them out, subscribe and most importantly send them articles and idea's for consideration.
I would hate to see this magazine go away simply because we didn't take advantage of what they have to offer.
If I can be helpful to you in getting submissions to Smartimes please feel free to contact me. I have no financial interest in the magazine but feel it provides us with a great opportunity to make the magazine our own!
