The top influencers of CMOs are a combination of C-level executives, authors, and professional speakers. The methods used to create impact vary across the influencers. As Carter Hostelley, CEO of Leadtail indicates, there are four general paths that top influencers use: 1) leverage insight gained from their position (e.g., @BrianSolis is a principal analyst at a Prophet company), 2) leverage domain expertise about a specific topic…, 3) create and curate compelling content…, and 4) build influence through engaging everyone….

In the wise words of Brian Solis – our favourite thought leader in Digital who we interviewed in November – “in a post-PC era, mobile is no longer a strategy or technology; it’s a lifestyle”.

In his latest eBook, “Mobile is Eating the World”, Brian emphasises just how engaged mobile consumers have become. For instance, did you know that they spend on average 177 minutes on their phone every day? Their phones are their first go-to resource; the shiny toys that they love to use whenever possible. And the more they use them, the more they learn about mobile technology, actively or intuitively.
