Our methodology

All of the data was collected with online media monitoring – the practice of gathering mentions from various online sources. We used media monitoring tool Brand24 to collect online mentions from social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, Google+, etc.), as well as beyond social (forums, blogs, news sites, and more).

How did we analyze the data?

You might have seen our modest report from last year, the Top 100 Marketing Influencers 2017. This was our first time tackling a project like this, and we were blown away by the response. Taking all of the insights, comments, and feedback that we received from our readers, we decided to level up this year:

We created a custom algorithm to calculate each digital marketer’s Brand24 Influencer Score for the Top 100 Digital Marketers 2018.

The Brand24 Influencer Score considers each influencer’s mentions (both in social media and beyond), interactions with their content (likesupvotescomments and shares), as well as their social media reach. Each digital marketer’s overall position in the Top 100 Digital Marketers 2018 is based on this unique score.

What’s new in this year’s report?

Just like the experts on our list, we are always trying to raise the bar. That’s why we’ve made a few changes in this new edition:

  • This year’s report is still based on data, but we decided to create a new scoring method that more accurately reflects the type and scale of influence for each digital marketing influencer.
  • We put the focus on digital marketers. These digital marketing experts have built amazing presence on the Internet. As a result, they are often mentioned & quoted by reputable sources.
  • The design in this year’s edition has also been made sleeker and easier to follow, making the data a breeze to understand.
