A Presentation on Social Media Influence

Alan Belniakbusiness, Marketing Profs, Social MediaLeave a Comment

On Thursday, October 4, I co-presented, along with Paul Gillin, a session on ‘online and social media influence.’  This topic has been getting some interest in the past 24 months, so it was nice to be able to once again put together some thoughts on the matter and have an open dialogue about it.  The event folks over at MarketingProfs were kind enough to permit Paul and I to lead an interactive group on this topic.


We broke it into two main sections.  Paul kicked it off with talking about the necessity of the importance of identifying online social media influence.  He covered a few key areas, using examples to illustrate the point.  Partway through, I picked up the presentation with some tools to help the identification process – but not just the Klouts and Kreds.  I covered some other ways to do some digging.


The attendees had some great  questions as well, and I think we all walked out a little bit wiser.


We shared our presentation online via SlideShare, and you can look at it below.

What about you?  Do you have any examples or issues with dealing with online influencers?
