5-How to Find and Follow the Top Influencers on Twitter

 

Here are ways to help with this.

 Google Search

Though it might seem obvious, many people skip the step of doing a Google search to find influencers. Start by typing “top [your field] leaders.” In some industries, this will be enough to give your results. Here is an example of a search that I did for top business leaders:

find twitter influencers

As you can see, there are easily 200 names from just one search. With a Google search, finding these lists is only the beginning. You will need to go through the lists and filter for relevant influencers. Then see if they are active on Twitter and have a sizable following and produce regular content. Bonus if you see them promoting other brands or products they like, or retweeting links and articles. You may find it helpful to create a spreadsheet to keep track of all this information.

Granted, business leaders is something relatively easy to search for. If you are in a more niche industry (especially one that does not have a strong online focus) you might have to dig a little deeper. I did the same search for “top dental hygienist leaders” and got a list of dental hygiene schools. I also searched “list of dental hygienists” and didn’t find anything useful. Then I tried searching “industry leaders in dental today” and found great results. Try different variations of the keywords you are searching to see what comes up.

 Twitter Search

The challenging thing about using Google is that you have to sort through information about people who are influencers, find them on Twitter, and then connect all the pieces of the puzzle. How about skip a few steps and search directly in Twitter instead? Then you can immediately follow them, share their content, add them to a list, or even send them a direct message.

Start by searching for your field or topic in which you want to find Twitter influencers. You will see top tweets in that category, as well as accounts and other information. You can also go into more detail with Advanced Search.

Twitter Monitoring

Another powerful way to take advantage of Twitter searches is by monitoring for key search terms and other information on an ongoing basis. You can of course do this manually, but by setting up a monitoring tool you will save yourself a ton of time, and make sure you don’t miss anything important.

At the end of this content,am going to share tools to use. Set up keywords you want to search for and then go to the monitoring tab in your dashboard. You can also exclude terms here so that you can eliminate searches that aren’t exactly what you want.

 User Analysis

Another thing you might want to get some automation help with in this whole process? User analysis. Basically, how do you know who you have a connection with, and what their influence is anyway? .

User Analysis influence

What I really love about this tool is that I can organize the data by a variety of factors, including by influence! Clicking the gold button will show you  people who have been retweeted at least 20 times in the last 30 days. This means you focus on engaging with those who have the most reach. You can also export these users, eliminating that whole data entry problem.

 Media Outlets

Another gauge of influence is who is getting the interviews and air time. Using the same concept as the Google search, except search only the Google News section. Include words like “expert interview” or “guest interview.” The benefit of this is that you might find people who slip under the radar other ways, and that you have a great thing to talk about when you reach out to them! Send them a message with a link to the interview that you found, and a note about how much you loved it.

Social Influence Sites

If you have used all the above methods, you probably have a lot of influencers to reach out to. And remember, it is all about taking action and building relationships, not building lists and spreadsheets that no one will see! That being said, there are still a couple more places you can check for data. One is social influence sites, such as Klout.com.

Klout influence score

Klout gives a score based on all your social media activity and interaction to represent how influential you are on a 0-100 scale. Don’t worry, only a handful of people in the world are at 100 — am going to give you more details about Klout Tool

 Other Social Media Sites

Chances are good that if someone has influence on Facebook or Instagram, they may on Twitter as well. Pay attention when you are browsing the web and if you find someone with a strong presence on another platform it is worth looking up their Twitter account.

This is not universally true. People often are stronger in a specific place, but it takes two seconds to check. And can uncover other opportunities, or give you information about where your tribe is hanging out. Don’t only look at numbers, but also engagement!

Who are the key influencers in your industry on Twitter that you need to connect with?

By identifying and building relationships with influencers you will have many benefits – Get your content shared, form partnerships, generate business and much more.

But before you go off and build these relationships, you need to put in a bit of work up front to identify who these influencers are.

Of course, we have some tools that will help!

1. Klear

 

Klear is a powerful tool for analyzing Twitter accounts (it also supports, YouTube, blogs and Instagram).  It divides people into over 40,000 categories so you can really distil down and find the right people in the right categories.

You start off by searching for influencers based on category, and then you specify the country (this is optional).

Searching for travel writers

 

You are then presented with a list of search results.  You can see on the left hand side you can filter based on a range of criteria.

Here are some some of the filters you can apply:

  • Filter by location – You can break it down by country and then by state within the country
  • Filter by network – Although you want to find influencers on Twitter you may want to see if they have influence on other platforms also.
  • Filter by skills – Based on the original filter Klear will identify other related skills that you can filter on.
  • Show only – Sometimes you may not want to show companies and only show people or you may want to show more active, responsive people etc.

There are many more filters available also.  When you identify the relevant influencer you can view a full profile of that influencer and start tracking them.

2. Little Bird

I recently tested out Little Bird and was impressed by the results it achieved.  It identifies influencers by seeing how many other influencers are connected with them.

It makes sense that, if you’re influential, other people who are influential will follow and engage with you.

It’s always good for picking out influencers based around a niche.

Other features of Little Bird:

  • Popular content – When you identify an influencer list, you can see the most popular content they share.  This is probably going to be great content for you to share out also.
  • Discover people to connect to – You’ll find out, based on your influencer list, who you are not following that you should be.  So it’s a good way of identifying new, relevant people to connect with.
  • Blogs – You can browse through the latest blog posts by the influencers.
  • Country filters – You can filter your influencers by country if there’s a specific country you want to target.
  • Export reports – You can export the reports you produce (this depends on your subscription level).

 3. Buzzsumo

Buzzsumo Follow Twitter  Tool

Buzzsumo is a content research tool that also has functionality for identifying influencers.

You can run a filter and drill down to find the most relevant people.  You can see on the right hand side you can get information such as the number of followers, the retweet ratio,  reply ratio, average retweets (not all shown in the image), domain and page authority.

You can click on each column to sort based on these columns and when you have identified the relevant influencer you can add them to a list.

4.  Traackr

Traackr  is a complete influencer management tool where you can find influencers (or upload them) and track all communication with them.

Here’s an example of an influencer profile which is automatically built within Traacrkr.

You can see it picks up the profiles across social media for the influencer, posts, conversations, connections (i.e. connecting with other influencers), footprint (size of profile across multiple sites) and more!

When you are communicating  with the influencers you can monitor the relationship status so you know at what stage you are at with each influencer.

5.  Twitonomy

Twitonomy provides very detailed profile information on Twitter followers.  If you find an influencer and want a very detailed profile analysis, this is a very useful tool.

One really useful way of finding influencers is to identify the people who a key influencer talks to on a regular basis.  The following shows an example of who a user is retweeting the most and who they are replying to the most.

 

Twitonomy
This is who the person is interacting with the most

 

When someone becomes influential, they cannot possibly reply or interact with everyone.  Imagine following 100,000 people and trying to keep up!

So what they typically do is create a filtered list with people that they do want to make sure to interact with.  Because of this, these are the people they tend to interact with the most.  They share their content, reply to their tweets and thank them for sharing their content.

So, finding out who they are talking to regularly is a good source of influencers.  These may be high-profile influencers, but it may also be people who are not yet that high profile, but are being watched by the influencers!  These are the up-and-coming influencers and/or people who have access to the influencers, so it’s worth connecting with them yourself, too.

6. Audience

Audience provides very good filters based on searches you perform on Twitter.  You can search profiles based on the keywords in people’s bio and location, and then sort this list based on a variety of categories.

The influence filter is based on an influence-scoring mechanism called ‘‘Kred’’, where people are rated out of 1,000.  This is not a perfect rating system (neither are similar systems like Klout, Peer Index etc.) but this, together with other filters applied, can help find some great people worth connecting with.

There are really good, comprehensive filters available through Socialbro

 

For example, you could show people who have a ‘Kred’ score of above 800, who appear in over 1,000 lists, and who have 5 times more followers than the number they are following.

Conclusion

  1. Identify potential influencers within your niche.
  2. Check to make sure those people are actual, active influencers.
  3. Begin interacting with those marketers to build a relationship.
  4. Attempt to get the attention of those influencers and get retweets.
  5. Repeat the process for as many influencers and for as long as you like.

One of the best ways of achieving success online is building relationships with people that have an active engaged audience for the niche you are targeting.

In particular you want to identify the influencers.

There are many tools to help in this area and all of them have their merits.

What tools do you use to find your influencers and how important is it for you to build relationships with influencers?
