The 100 Most Retweeted Marketers in the World

Posted on Posted in Influencer Marketing

topretweeted2

Who are the most retweeted marketers in the entire world?

METHODOLOGY: In this new analysis, we queried Buzzsumo’s data tool for influential marketers. The list comes from a metasearch that returned 11,000 influencers, ranked by an algorithm that includes 16 different influence metrics including retweets, Twitter lists, Google PageRank, Moz’s website domain authority and page authority and more. However, for this list, we simply sorted the most retweeted marketers from the top down. We eliminated companies and magazines, choosing to focus on individuals only.

WHY ISN’T SO-AND-SO ON THIS LIST? First, they had to be a marketer. The question, “Who’s a marketer?” isn’t as easy to answer as you might think, because a lot of people market in the course of their work, and a lot of experts occasionally opine about marketing, without truly being an expert in marketing. And some authors who’ve spoken about marketing at times surprise us by saying they don’t consider themselves marketers or marketing experts.

WHO THE HECK IS X? This list of the most retweeted marketers in the world contains names you’re probably familiar with. But there are also a bunch you may not have heard of… which you should expect. If this were just another list of somebody’s favorite gurus, or another U.S.-centric author list, you’d see the same old people from five-year-old blog posts. The fact that there are new up-and-comers here is good for the industry and an indicator of accuracy. We’re excited to discover these new (to us) voices and look forward to learning from them!

Here’s our list of the top 100 most retweeted marketers in the world, as of November 27th, 2016.
