Car Dealer Magazine quotes

"Caroline Shield’s performance was particularly impressive, however. With a Klout score of 64, she moved up from seventh and beat some of the UK’s largest dealer groups in the process."

‘Simon and I are thrilled to be the second most influential car dealer in the UK,’ she said. ‘Social media is a big part of our marketing strategy and to be recognised for this is tremendous.

‘Engagement, brand awareness, building up relationships, having fun and meeting new people has brought Simon Shield Cars Ltd prominence. Thank you Car Dealer Magazine for collating the list.’

A Klout score is a number given between one and 100, which takes into consideration a user’s interaction on Twitter to work out their overall influence – the higher the number, the more influential the user.
