The word influence has such a nice ring to it. It connotes the ability to shape opinions, views, and decisions. In the blogosphere, influence is not to be taken lightly.



Blog Influence

When the  Technorati 2013 Digital Influence Report revealed that blogs that now come third in ranking behind retail sites and brand sites in the matter of commanding influence over consumer purchase, I realized just how powerful blogs have become. People do not only pay attention to what they say. They actually listen and act on them.

This made me think just how big the responsibility blogs and blogger have, knowing for a fact that influence is not merely limited to consumer purchases. How do we determine influence? Is it determined by the number of visits in a blog? Does it have something to do with the size of the community in which the blog or the blogger belongs to? To my mind, if brands wish to maximize the potential of their product or service, they will have to find their most suitable influencers among bloggers and work with them.

Is the right influencer necessarily have to be the most popular? Not really, but they need to be influencers who are respected in their niche. A large social media following is just one side of such respect. The rest will fall squarely on content and the people behind the content.
