[This blog post is co-authored by Social Authority, our metric of Twitter users’ influence. There are plenty of vanity metrics out there, but Social Authority offers something compellingly different.
Social Authority Helps Marketers
Social Authority is not about bragging rights or merchant discounts. Nor is it something that you check once and then forget about. Our metric is immediately, reliably useful. You can order all active Twitter users by influence, dissect your social graph, or find new followers who are most important — right now.
But it’s more than just exploring your own followers (or those of a competitor): Social Authority is ultimately a measure of influential activity. As such, it highlights content that is successful on Twitter. When you find users with high Social Authority, you’re finding great marketing strategies to analyze and mimic.

Link building outreach can be really difficult and unpleasant. I've always hated the tactic of emailing site owners and asking for links; it feels awkward, doesn't work very well, and requires a lot of time and effort. One of my favorite things about our modern world is that with social media, it's possible to form real relationships with people you don't already know. By the time you ask for a link or a share, you're not just some creeper just emailing out of the blue asking for a favor; you're viewed a friend whom they trust to provide value and not spam them.
I recently spoke at PubCon Las Vegas about my tactics for finding link targets online and building relationships with them using my favorite social media platform, Twitter. This is a strategy that I've been able to use in the past to completely replace sending "link ask" emails. For my very first-ever Whiteboard Friday, I want to share these tactics and the tools I use to do them with you! This is a strategy that takes some time and effort to set up and execute, but it can result in a set of social … Read the rest
