How to Identify Relevant Online Influencers with These 3 Tools

How to Identify Relevant Online Influencers with These 3 Tools | Marketing&Advertising | Scoop.it

This piece and infographic is from Adam Vincenzini on his blog.

 

I selected this article because it's another way for you to find key influencers and these tools will help to narrow your search

 

Here are some highlights:

 

Instead of focusing on the subjectivity of this process (and how this insight is deployed) Here's how you can use a combination of free tools to narrow your search.

 

Where do online influencers operate?


**They are active everywhere:

 

     Most popular are:

     blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Online

     communities, discussion boards

 

Assumptions:

 

**Influencers are active on Twitter

**Influencers operate some for of blogging hub

 

Focus on the intelligence you can glean from Twitter initially then verify this initial sweep with blog (or relevant hub) data

 

The initial steps involve:

 

1. Search by keyword

2. Search by location

 

3 tools useful in the process: The first two you can also search by location:

 

**followerwonk.com - then run this through another influencer tool -   

     tweetlevel to give it even more relevance (this isn't fool proof)

**locafollow.com

**twingulate.com

 

There are more suggestions in this piece having said that:

 

**No matter how hard we try, a 100% fool proof influence rating is near on impossible because influence is not a science, it can't be.

 

** this can help narrow things down, significantly

Part 1: Another Look At Content Curation - What it Entails & Why it's so Valuable

Part 1: Another Look At Content Curation - What it Entails & Why it's so Valuable | Marketing&Advertising | Scoop.it

Here's another article about content curation but is't definitely worthy of your time. It was written by Jonathan Crowe for Business2community.

 

In this two-part series, the author's  gives  an explanation of what content curation entails and how it can be a valuable tool in your content marketing strategy.

 

Summary:

 

The author covers a couple of misconceptions about curation and explains why curating third party content can help you become a trusted source and build your brand.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**Another way to think about content curation is comparing it to networking. 

 

**Members of an audience engage in a larger conversation by connecting them with the latest ideas and innovative leaders in their field

 

** it can also connect them — through comment fields, etc. — with each other.

 

My commentary:

 

**Some people ignore the comment section but this is a place where you can  monitor what your audience is thinking and feeling, while engaging in conversation with them

 

**Curation can generate internal value for your company, as well.
