I wanted to send a quick update. My name is Nick and I am the CEO of A07 Online Media.
The team here has been busy since we took over GoodCarBadCar a few months ago. We are excited about the long term potential of the site and have been investing a ton to make it even better. Tim has been awesome to work with and we hope to build on all the hard work he put into the site. We’re also excited that Tim will continue to be a key contributor to the site each month.
Our goal in the short term is simple. Move GoodCarBadCar to a robust platform, clean up the navigation and user experience, remove some of the more aggressive ads and then invest in new data tools to better showcase what is happening in North American automotive sales.
We have made some progress.
The site is now on WordPress. We went live on Friday 29th of September. All redirects, links and content was moved over so hopefully it is working the way you expect it to. If not, please let us know. If you see any issues or have concerns or feedback, we want to hear about it.
The work isn’t finished. We’re working on a few things that we hope to have finished soon:
Disqus comments. There is always awesome comments and discussion on GoodCarBadCar and we don’t want to lose any of that history. We plan on continuing the use of Disqus. We are working on implementing it on the site and then porting over all the existing comments and discussion.
New tables and charts. We are working on updating the tables and charts shown on the site to better showcase the data. For example, check out the Acura Brand Sales Figures and the Acura MDX Sales Figures pages to get a sense for the updates. Eventually all pages should look the same.
As always, we want the site to be an amazing resource to you guys. If you have feedback (good, bad, in the middle) send it our way, we want to hear it. If you have ideas you want to see us implement then fire away.
