Blackball Media

Blackball Media is an automotive content, PR and marketing services company based on the (mostly) sunny south coast of England in Gosport, Hampshire.

 Founded by James Baggott in February 2008 to publish the award-winning motor trade publication Car Dealer Magazine, the company has grown to provide content for international clients as well as PR and marketing services for some of the leading car manufacturers in the UK.

Car Dealer is now the biggest motor trade publication in the UK with readers enjoying the glossy print edition as well as the free interactive iPad edition. We also serve thousands of users who read the magazine’s content on their iPhone.

The magazine runs a number of popular events every year – including two award ceremonies and a brace of business conferences, which connect the motor trade. Our expertise has resulted in the team generating a combined following of more than 13,000 people on Twitter too.

Blackball Media manages dealer PR services for two of the biggest car manufacturers in the UK and provides content to one of the world’s premier consumer web portals on a daily basis.
