After much deliberation over the wide range of submissions we received, Talking Influence is pleased to present the annual Influencer 50. The 2019 Influencer 50, sponsored by CreatorIQ, is a celebration of the top 50 industry players in influencer marketing from 2019 who continue to steer, influence and inspire the industry, whether that’s through technical know-how, thought-leadership, reinventing the wheel, or their role as an industry ambassador.
“The 2019 Influencer 50 puts a spotlight on the brightest minds in influencer marketing to showcase the creativity, innovation, and breadth of what is happening in the industry. It gives us a platform to share best practices with peers, hopefully, inspire us to co-ideate with influencer marketing experts from brands and agencies, and collectively push the influencer marketing envelope outward,” said Kam Zulawski, managing director, EMEA at CreatorIQ.
“The wealth of talent and outstanding work of those in the influencer community is what drives the space forward and we want to champion that. The alphabetical list has been curated by a mix of peer nominations and our own research. A huge congratulations to all of those that are included this year” commented Joele Forrester, a journalist at Talking Influence.
One to watch
For the first time, we’ve highlighted a number of individuals as One to Watch, indicating the rising stars of the industry who are set to push the boundaries and improve the channel in 2020 and beyond.
“The ones to watch celebrate the rising stars of the industry that have shown commitment and courage to make their mark in the space,” continued Zulawski.
