How to Understand, Identify & Engage with Social Influencers [Infographic]

How to Understand, Identify & Engage with Social Influencers [Infographic] | The Social Web | Scoop.it

I chose this infographic and article from Blackbaud because it helps you go from social media to social business. It was written for non-profits but it definitely applies to any business as well.

 

By understanding how to evaluate people by their degree of influence and their ability to help change behavior in others can be invaluable to you and your organization.

 

**It's also important to use this information to understand how you and your organization fit into this mix. They say knowledge is power, once you have a clearer picture, you can shift what you're doing and take your business or cause to the next level for greater results.

 

Intro:

 

"Understanding the Value of Your Social Media Influencers: How to Identify and Empower Those Who Can Engage an Entire Community!

(Download the White Paper Today!)"

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**Learn how to use the information your consitiuents are sharing to attract more people to your mission, campaign.

 

**Learn how to analyze your database and assign social scores to engagers that represents their ability to interact with and influence others across their online networks

 

**Based on the social score you assign to these individuals, you can then segment them into one of four categories, each of which plays a diferent role on social networks, relevant to your business

 

Here are the categories:

 

Key Influencers - They have a powerful impact not only the people they know but also others they don't know. Their posts are widely spread and shared by more people than many other people

Engagers - These people have well-established social networks and are strong influencers of people they know personally

 

Multichannel Consumers - They enjoy keeping up with social media conent and occasionally participate. Their influence is not a dominent part of their persona

 

Standard Consumers These engagers read and watc updates more than they create new content or make comments. They are more influenced by family and friends.

Influence: What Are Tools Like Klout Really Measuring?

Influence: What Are Tools Like Klout Really Measuring? | The Social Web | Scoop.it

A very interesting comparison of several measurement tools and what they really measure. [note mg]

 

For marketers, PR professionals and customer service teams, personal influence measurement tools can save time and help facilitate business decisions. Tools such as Klout, PeerIndex, Kred and TweetLevel are being used by brands to rank the relative importance of customers and prospects, prioritize customer service responses, and identify groups of influencers to target with perks and product sampling promotions.

 

But what are these personal influence measurement tools really measuring? Are they really an effective way to understand which of your customers are more influential?

 

It is easy to understand influence as a concept; if you can get other people to do something, you have influence. But it’s not at all easy to define how you would measure influence. As Nathan Gilliatt has pointed out, there is no such thing as a “unit of influence” – an observable, measurable event that reflects influence.

Stephen Dale's insight:

Social reputation and social influence are becoming as important (if not more important) than your paper-based CV and your real-world network. But can they be empirically measured, and if so, what does your score actually mean? This article gives an overview of some of the products/services that purport to give you an influence score. Whether you take it seriously is entirely up to you!
