Who knew the topic of online influence could be so exciting and, well, complex? Apparently, Social Media Today did when they assembled a panel for their “Best Thinkers Series” which is a weekly discussion style webinar moderated by expert journalist Maggie Fox.

 

I was fortunate to participate in this event with Megan Berry, marketing manager from Klout. Pulling together a vendor and a practitioner is no easy task – as online influence was discussed as a concept- what does it all mean, straight through to how does one achieve it on and offline.
