Tweets, LinkedIn posts, blogs, newsletters, RSS apps and oh so many more. Between all of those, how can we really know what and who to follow? Every marketer out there knows the feeling of drowning in information. And that’s where social media influencers come in. They come with a great feed – clean, relevant & with powerful opinions – giving us exactly what we’re looking for. That’s why we love them.
But don’t take my word for it, let me paint you a picture.
Over 4M blog posts are published every day. (This awesome live counter will show you just how many articles are published daily)
Just in March 2018 over 82M blog posts went out only on WordPress (source)
Want to stay up to date using Twitter? Sounds like a great plan! Especially since there are 6000 tweets going out every second.
I think you already know – staying up to date with your industry is…difficult. To say the least. We think social media influencers are the gods of feeds. They help us stay up to date with the latest trends, social media tools, and advice. They not only share the best content but create the best content. However, there are a lot of social media influencers as well.
So under infinite piles of great content, it’s hard to catch some air without a bit of order and help. There’s a lot of apps that can adjust that setting (see Feedly, Zest.is, Pocket), but we decided to lend a hand as well. How? With a list. With THE list.
