About Us

Blackball Media is an automotive content, PR, video production and marketing 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 the largest Expo for the motor trade in the UK, dubbed CDX. Our expertise has resulted in the team generating a combined following of more than 30,000 people on Twitter too.

Blackball Media manages dealer PR services for three of the largest car manufacturers in the UK and provides content to several of the world’s premier consumer web portals on a daily basis as well as a host of the largest car dealer groups in the country.

Our expertise covers all manner of motoring and media – from stunning photography to broadcast quality video production, from award winning editorial services to dynamic PR solutions, our passionate team can help you get the most from your marketing and PR budgets.

If you need help, and there’s no one else around, and you can find us (which is easy because you’re on our website), maybe you should call… the B-Team.

Actually, that sounds rubbish… just call Blackball Media. We’re like the A-Team, only slightly less good with spanners…
