Talking Influence is extremely excited to announce the launch of its first-ever #Influencer50 – a list of the most important, influential figures and top industry leaders in B2B influencer marketing throughout 2018.
The list, which you can view here, recognises the exceptional work of individuals that are helping drive the influencer marketing industry forward on a global scale, whether through their technical ability, thought leadership, advocacy or their role as an industry ambassador, to name a few.
Although this is the first list, it was certainly a difficult task refining it to just 50 individuals. Talking Influence reviewed and considered each nomination, with multiple nominations considered an indicator of the candidates’ influence, and the final list showcasing the variety of disciplines and job roles to represent the diversity within the industry.
“The #Influencer50 shines a light on the industry’s own influencers who have driven the industry forward. Whether investing in technology to help combat fraud, connecting creators and brands or working with clients to maximise ROI from their activity,”commented Matthew Wood, director of Talking Influence.
“There is no doubt that 2019 will see exceptional growth for influencer marketing as brands continue to invest and we are excited to see what the year will hold for us all.”
“As always, it’s been a very exciting yet turbulent year for the influencer marketing industry, making this list incredibly exciting to put together,” said Joele Forrester, digital journalist at Talking Influence.
“With so much change and evolvement happening in this relatively new industry, it there are certainly going to be exciting times ahead. The range of nominations indicate the talent within the sector and the Influencer 50 reflects the wealth of talent within the influencer marketing community, although, there are, of course, hundreds that are deserving of similar recognition. I’m looking forward to what the industry has in store for us all in 2019.”
Congratulations to those that made the cut and a final thank you to all of those that nominated their peers. You can get involved in the conversation on socials using the #Influencer50 hashtag.
