A new comprehensive list of the top 100 sales influencers has been published. While there are many of these arbitrary “Top [Number] [Subject] Influencer” lists that are out there, this was developed by a company using a lot of big social data to analyze influencer. This list also included two sub-lists of influencers in terms of most followers and most active. What makes this study and its results interesting are that the personalities in the lists were carefully chosen using a uniform group of metrics and methodology.
I am extremely excited and at the same time humbled to be included in not one – but two top ten lists!
Social media is an arena filled with vicious competitors. It can be very lonely if you cannot create any traction from your targeted audience. This is why this report is significant. The people in these lists have utilized the power of social to its hilt making them the ultimate resource for everyone to emulate – and of course to learn a thing or two from social selling on!
How the List was Created
It is currently difficult to come up with an ultimate list of the top influencers if you are merely using search engines or doing random searches within social networks. Top “authority” websites will come up with lists but the necessary proof always seem to be missing. Fortunately, the methodology used in creating this list incorporated a unique measuring tool created by Klear named True Reach.
This new methodology cuts through the current norm of simply looking at the number of people actively following an account. True Reach measures the number of people who have seen an engage with specific status update or posts across multiple social media accounts from specific social media users.
