Being the channel-focused organization that we are, Net-Results continually combs the interweb to locate more thought leadership and practitioners of demand generation strategies. As such, I’ve decided to roll out 53 (yes, 53. Don’t ask.) of our favorite influencers in the world of Marketing Automation and Demand Generation.

These experts are at the forefront of their industries; they’re knowledgeable about a range of focus areas that, together, capture what’s happening (and what’s coming) in the world of digital marketing.

Lists are fun, right? Who doesn’t like a good list of people to follow?

If you’re trying to stay relevant with new marketing tactics and strategies, brainstorming for your next blog post subject or attempting to keep on top of the trending topics in your industry then these are the folks I think you should be following. At this point you may be considering the question why. Why, Chaz, should I care about your list of 53 digital marketing influencers? It’s simple. I think these people know their stuff, I think that following them together gives me (and therefore you) a well-rounded perspective on the digital marketing landscape and in bang-for-your-buck, keep-your-interns-aware-of-the-space-ness, these are the “it” people.

I built this list based on each person’s relevancy to the overall digital marketing landscape. The people on the list are knowledgeable about a variety of subjects including sales, content marketing, B2B Marketing, social media, SEO, and marketing automation. I have also included links to each influencer’s blog and Twitter handle.
