  • The Top 10 CMO Influencers

    Nice Systems

    http://bit.ly/1igzaNT

    Who are the consultants that top CMOs listen to online? In order to answer that, Nice Systems took a thorough look at the Top 100 CMOs featured in Social Media Marketing Magazine and identified the circle of power: the consultants they all read every morning.


    NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE), is the worldwide leader of intent-based solutions that capture and analyze interactions and transactions, realize intent, and extract and leverage insights to deliver impact in real time.

  • Top 50 People Most Retweeted by Mid‐Size Marketers

    Adweek Magazine
    • February 2014

    http://bit.ly/MALXhC

    Findings based on a study done by DNN and Leadtail that identified the top 50 retweeted people when it comes to the mid-sized marketing demo. The firm sifted through 90,000 tweets from 500 marketers to come to its findings.

    Some of the names are not surprising (Vala Afshar, Jay Baer, Jeremiah Owyang, etc.). But it's fairly interesting to see POTUS Barack Obama and Star Trek legend George Takei charting higher than notable industry folks Guy Kawasaki or Gary Vaynerchuk for this particular category, isn't it? And comedians Jim Gaffigan, Michael Ian Black and Jenny Johnson's appearance suggests that marketers aren't only about serious bidness on Twitter.
