Redline make the social media Top 10

Redline Specialist Cars announced as one of the most influential car dealers on social media by Car Dealer Magazine.

Car Dealer magazine’s Social Media 200 list has been growing in prestige and popularity in the automotive sector for the last few years, and while Redline have been in the top 50 businesses on the list for the last few years, this year we made it into the Top 10, beating large dealer groups including franchise heavyweights Lookers and Evans Halshaw.

Well – we say we made it into the Top 10…. Due to an administrative error at Car Dealer magazine we were listed in twelfth position as they failed to count our social media followers correctly, listing the total number as just 5,964 when the number stood at well over 20,000.

The list is calculated using an established measure of social media called Klout – the higher the score, the more influential you are – and the total number of social media followers.

Social media has become an integral part of the way we communicate with customers old and new so to be recognised as one of the leaders in our industry was a great honour – thanks go to all our customers who have made social media such an effective tool for all of us.
