Car Dealer Magazine reveals the top 200 most influential car dealers on social media

ON MAY 21 at CDX 2018, Car Dealer Magazine revealed the top 200 most influential dealers on social media in an exclusive breakout session. 

The businesses are invited to the Social Media 200 session based on preliminary results, before the final scores are drawn and then revealed at the event.

Here we handed out five awards to the top scorers in three categories and unveiled the top 200 car dealers on social media exclusively first. This year we also had two awards as voted for by the Car Dealer Magazine team, for best engagement and use of video in social media.

The scores are collated using Klout to measure a business’s influence on social media. Read on to see who our winners were and where you placed on the top 200 list.
