7 Ways to Find, Engage & Leverage Powerful Influencers

7 Ways to Find, Engage & Leverage Powerful Influencers | AtDotCom Social media |

This piece was written by Belinda Stinson for Jeff Bullas's blog

Jan Gordon: My commentary

This is one of the suggestions that was mentioned in tis article but I can't stress this enough, it should be #1

After you've discovered who the right influencers are, always look for ways you can sincerely contribute to them that is meaningful, then find ways to leverage the relationship and make it a win/win for both of you. 


 "if you want to grow your business, you need to know who the influencers are in your field, learn from their expertise and build a productive professional relationship with them".

Why leverage influencers?:

"Influencers are hubs of information, they have many followers who respect their recommendations and opionions and being featured by them sends a powerful amount of targeted traffic your way - It's good old fashioned word of mouth recommendations on steriods"

Here are a few ways to discover influencers that I personally do myself:

**Twitter Lists - Twitter is a great untapped resource for finding influencers and keep track of what they are posting

**Groups and Forums - These are valuable sources of information.

**Podcasts and webinars - This is a great way to find key influencers - whether it's through interviews, presentations, information products of their own or curated information by others

Here are a few ways to build relationships that I've found very effective in finding influencers in my industry:

**Connect through the social media platforms they use

**Share the posts that are of value to your audience, retweet & quote their content, share, comment and like their Facebook posts

**Help promote what they are involved with, including charity causes, seminars, conferences, publiations and promotions

Reimagining Business with a Social Mindset

This video and article and download full report is from Deloitte Consulting. It is timely and relevant!, If you're wondering what social business is all about and how it relates to your business, you'll find lots of insights to help you understand and act on this information for your business today.

Here is an excerpt from a response by Sandy Petland from MIT Labs that gives you just a glimpse into what you'll find in this material:.

"Social business is built on top of social networks, which most organizations already have in place.

For years I've been studying connection science” – studying how relationships and personal interactions shape society and business.

**Social business is a manifestation of that thinking, with companies transforming how they organize and operate based on

individual roles, social networks and the power of connections.

**Social business can have huge potential inside and outside the enterprise, across employees, customers, prospects and business partners.

Here is a takeaway that caught my attention:

Start at the beginning -

**Map the individuals in your potential social networks

**know what behaviors you are trying to affect and how you might meaningfully engage these into persistent communities

**Use this information to guide the development of tools, roadmaps and roll-out plans – not the other way around.

**Focus on results that can be measurable and attributable

Overwhelmed By Social Media? Here Are 7 Ways to Keep Up

Overwhelmed By Social Media? Here Are 7 Ways to Keep Up | AtDotCom Social media |

This a timely and important piece from Mark Schaefer of {grow} in which he touches upon several issues which confront all of us who are trying to keep our heads above water in the ever-evolving world of Social Media.

To quote: "Not only do the platforms shift every day, the rules of engagement change constantly, too. Can anybody keep up with the real (and rumored) changes just to Facebook's EdgeRank formula? What we considered best practices six months ago are passé today. Social media is overwhelming, especially when there is pressure to master every new platform that comes along  How do you keep up?."


** Platforms may change but marketing fundamentals remain the same

** Absolutely nobody can navigate this changing world alone as there are too many facets to it, so form a mutually beneficial support group.

** There's too much informationfor any one person to keep on top of all of it, so pick a main focus and try really hard to keep mainly to that.

** Know your audience and go where you will find them. This might mean giving up on one of the major platforms.  Swallow hard and do it!

** The more successful you become and the more your reach grows, the less time you will have to engage one-on-one with people. Don't let yourself feel guilty about this as it is inevitable.

** Go to a trusted source for information but be warned: Such a place may not (yet) exist.

The Culture Of Personality: The What, Why & How of Social Business

The Culture Of Personality: The What, Why & How of Social Business | AtDotCom Social media |

I selected this piece by Matt Ridings from SideraWorks because we all talk about social business but what is it, why should we care, how do we measure it and why is it important for our business?

This piece along with a slideshare answers some of these questions and gives you a mindset and framework to work with.

Here are some highlights:

What is Social Business?

**The answer differs if you're describing the purpose, the processes or the outcomes - Depending on your point of view as the customer, the employee or a partner  -  the answer can differ even more

Here is a definition of social business:

Social busines is the creation of an organization that is optimized to benefit the entire ecosystem. Customers, employees, partners, owners by embedding collaboration and active engagment into its operations and culture. The result is a more responsive, adaptable, effective and untimately more successful company.

Here are some of the challenges:

**How do we develop a common vocabulary and context so] that all parties have a clear understanding of what it is they're trying to achieve or become?

**How to 'audit' something like culture to the degree that you can provide a meaningful representationn of its curfrent attributes at individual, group anad organization - wide levels?

**How do you represent the objective in a way that is easily understood in relation to the audit?
