50 Top B2B Marketing Influencers, Experts and Speakers To Follow In 2022 Collage Image The business landscape of 2021 includes a wealth of B2B influencers who are shaping the future of marketing for 2022 and beyond. To honor and celebrate our industry's B2B marketing subject matter experts, including many who happen to be speaking at this week's MarketingProfs B2B Forum virtual event, we're thrilled to publish our annual list of some of the world's leading B2B marketing influencers. Each year MarketingProfs B2B Forum is filled to the brim with the latest insightful B2B marketing tactics and strategies presented by a powerhouse lineup of exceptional B2B influencers, and this year is no different. MPB2B will take place October 13 - 14, 2021 and features a stellar group of B2B marketing professionals the programming team at MPB2B has carefully assembled, in an updated virtual format designed to bring you all the freshest industry knowledge without any of the screen fatigue. In the spirit of helping B2B marketing professionals learn more and connect with new voices, we've compiled our latest list of B2B marketing influencers — many who will be speaking at #MPB2B — to follow and learn from in 2022 and beyond. List Methodology — Relevance Rules: Our starting point for this year's list is a focus on the increasing value of resonance in today's B2B marketing landscape, highlighting influencers with audiences that actively engage with their content centered around the practice of B2B marketing. Today's B2B marketing influencers face greater expectations for sharing content than ever, and the experts on our list all rate especially well when it comes to audience engagement and resonance. Using a variety of ranking signals, we've identified and validated the credentials of a powerful group of B2B marketing experts, utilizing influencer marketing platform Traackr along with other metrics. Our list this year highlights the increasing importance of resonance over mere follower numbers, as audience size itself is not a predictor of a successful outcome, and we've also placed increased importance on the degree to which each influencer's social activity drives engagement on the topic of B2B marketing among their audience. A variety of criteria go into such a ranking, including:
  • Audience resonance
  • Topical relevance of the content each influencer publishes
  • Network engagement with on-topic content
Online data for these rankings is pulled not only from Twitter, but also from blogs, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, SlideShare, and several other platforms — an important item to know, as many lists rely entirely on Twitter and don't take into account relevant influencer activity from additional platforms in the social media universe. Network B2B Marketers Many thanks go out to each of these generous B2B marketing influencers who provide top-notch B2B marketing best practices, tips, and advice during this year unlike any other. In our list for 2021 you'll likely see a few familiar faces, along with many new B2B marketing industry influencers, together forming a refreshing mix of professionals to follow and learn from into 2022 and beyond. If you’d like to follow all 50 top B2B marketers in one shot, we’ve made a handy Twitter list for you. Enjoy!
