Defining and Measuring Influence Webinar

Defining and Measuring Influence

An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today

We are all subject to being influenced by people, events and experiences in our lives. This is just as true in our online behaviors as it is in the rest of our lives. Those influences affect our thinking, our decisions and our preferences. We base many of our choices on the words and actions of others. With the growth of the social component on the Internet, we are exposed to many stimuli aimed at grabbing our attention and affecting what we do next - where we click, what we “Like,” who we trust and what we buy. This webinar digs deeper into how influence works and does not work on the Internet. To examine that, we must be clear about what is or is not influence and how such a fuzzy concept can be measured.

  • Is influence such a personal thing that it can’t be generalized?
  • Can a person be defined as “influential” simply by having more followers on Twitter and Likes on Facebook?
  • How can you tell if someone has been influenced?
  • What kinds of influence should be recognized and leveraged through market research?
  • Is building influence different in B2B vs B2C?
