The Thinkers360 patent-pending algorithm helps to produce leaderboards that look across all thought leader roles and across the quantity and quality of their thought leadership content. It provides a valuable measure of thought leadership content, encourages genuine content creation, incorporates social media influence as one of the measures, and encourages richer profiles and portfolios through gamification.
Thinkers360’s listing includes authors, influencers and speakers who are members of Thinkers360 and who have curated and shared their thought leadership content – including articles, blogs, books, keynotes, media interviews, panels, podcasts, social media, speaking events, videos, webinars and whitepapers – via their platform.
As the company said, their differentiation from the various influencer leaderboards on social media, is that we take a holistic view of thought leaders and experts, beyond their social media activity, and look across all the hats they may wear – such as academic, author, consultant, entrepreneur, influencer and speaker – and all the types of thought leadership content they produce.
They currently cover business and technology topics including Agile, AI, Analytics, AR/VR, Autonomous Vehicles, Big Data, Blockchain, Change Management, Cloud, CRM, Cryptocurrency, Culture, Customer Experience, Cybersecurity, Design Thinking, Digital Disruption, Digital Transformation, Edtech, Emerging Technology, Entrepreneurship, ERP, FinTech, GovTech, Health & Safety, HealthTech, HR, Innovation, IoT, Leadership, Lean Startup, Management, Marketing, Mobility, Open Innovation, Predictive Analytics, Procurement, PropTech, Quantum Computing, Retail, Risk Management, Sales, Social, Startups, Supply Chain and Sustainability.
Of course, no measurement system related to influence or thought leadership is perfect, but the thought leadership scoring system within Thinkers360 is a highly-differentiated approach to help you identify authentic thought leaders – looking far beyond social media – serving as the tip of the spear for your B2B influencer marketing objectives.
