    Ready to elevate your B2B brand?

    TopRank Marketing drives results with content, influencer, SEO & social media marketing.

    Marketers around the world are searching for ways to better connect with their audiences and it’s become very clear that consumers place more trust in consumers than brands. That means, the true power lies with the customer, which means many brands have had to adapt their marketing strategies to create better experiences for their audience.

    One way to do so is by incorporating influencer driven content into the digital marketing mix.

    For B2C brands, incorporating influencers is already a well-established practice. But for B2B brands, the concept is much newer. In a recent report that we developed with Altimeter Group and Traackr, we found that only 11% of B2B companies are running an ongoing influencer marketing program, yet 80% of these marketers rate content marketing most impacted by influencer marketing.

    One of the essential ingredients to a successful influencer marketing program is having the right tools in your toolkit. To help remove some of the mystery, we have developed a list of 25 influencer marketing tools (free and paid) that can help you along your journey to leveling up influencer marketing within your organization. Please note that these tools are not ranked in a specific order based on preference or recommended use, so we encourage you to dig into all 25!
