For 18 years Bus Conversions Magazine has been published by MAK Publishing. Then as the Internet became a major part of our lives, MAK set up this forum. Many bus nuts have relied on BCM and this forum for good information on how to accomplish various aspects of their conversion. As one of those bus nuts myself, I say thank you to Mike and Karen Kadletz and all the people that have been a part of MAK Publishing over the years.
Effective with the July issue, Bus Conversions Magazine and its online properties are owned and published by Bus Conversion Enterprises, Inc. We are still setting things up. We will have a new phone/fax numbers up and running within the next couple days. The new mailing address for all correspondence, subscriptions, advertising payments, etc. is:
Bus Conversion Enterprises, Inc.
1538 SE West Farms Road
Arcadia, FL 34266-9072
Checks should be made out to Bus Conversion Enterprises, Inc.
The Board of Directors are a familiar group - Mike Sullivan, Chad Laines and Phil Lyons. I will be leading the company as CEO/President. Each of us come from different backgrounds and bring our own unique talents to the company. But we all share a common vision for the company, magazine and online presence:
- Customer service will be the top priority. Phone calls will be answered live or messages answered promptly. Emails will be replied to in a timely fashion.
- We will work to ensure that the magazines get to each subscriber reliably. We will be taking steps to improve the reliability of magazine delivery. In the rare case that you donít get your copy, a phone call or email will bring one promptly.
- We plan to expand the magazine with more bus conversion content. Our goal is to restore it to 72 pages while maintaining quality. It will have more content and more photos.
This forum will of course continue to be maintained and its oversight will continue to be the responsibility of the moderating team.
We are looking for advertisers for the magazine and the web. As a bus nut, you regularly deal with businesses that could benefit from advertising that is focused on bus nuts. When you help us sign up a new advertiser, you will receive 10% of their first month advertising spend as a finderís fee.
When you talk to a potential advertiser, give them your forum user name as a referral code and ask them to mention it when enquiring. When they pay for their first ad, you will get 10% of what they pay for the first month. If more than one person refers an advertiser, the one
that the advertiser mentions is the one that will receive the finderís fee.
Exciting times are ahead for us all. Bus Conversions Magazine has been around for 18 years and seen great achievements. But the best is yet to come. We promise you that!
