Top #Sales and #Marketing Influencers of 2012

Top 50 Sales & Marketing Influencers 2012

I about fell out of my chair when I saw that my name was added to this list. Probably because I have no balance more than anything else.

This is a list created by topsalesworld.com every year by as they put it “a team of professional researchers who rigorously examined the credentials of one hundred and fifty possible “candidates” to arrive at the top fifty, and we also asked the editors of the most popular sales resource venues to give us their opinion.”

The criteria  used to benchmark each individual’s impact within the sales space was:

  • Social media presence – Twitter/ Facebook/ Klout score/LinkedIn authority.
  • Quality, regularity and popularity of written work – books, blog posts, articles, EBooks etc.
  • Active engagement with recognized resource sites.
  • And not least, a commitment to continually advance selling and marketing practices.

I’m not going to list all 50. You can go to the website for those. But I will say that I appreciate and am honored to be on a successful list along with some of the biggest names in the industry like:
