50 Influential Women in Content Marketing 2017 #CMWorld

By Lee Odden

With over 200 speakers, moderators, panelists and workshop leaders at the 2017 Content Marketing World conference, it is a substantial task to investigate the influence of so many accomplished marketing professionals.

For this year’s list of influential content marketing speakers, I went a step further and took into account those who have presented at Content Marketing World over the past 3 years. That’s 392 speakers in all!

We’ve been publishing lists like this for years and with the help of Traackr for assessing topical influence, relevance, resonance and reach, I think we have another great group of content marketing smarties for you to follow.

Please don’t confuse a list like this on one topical dimension and three sorting criteria as the same thing as developing an influencer list for a marketing program. That requires deeper topic distillation, customer insight, influencer audience analysis, content stage to influencer mapping and customization based on goals, channel, competition, resources and timeframe. You can tell I’m a consultant, can’t you?!

One big change for this particular content marketing influencer list is that I decided to focus on the top women in content marketing. Outside of the obvious, one of my main motivations for this emphasis is that there isn’t a marketing conference operating today that isn’t scrambling to find more women to speak. I hope this list helps organizers connect with some great talent.

Ranking criteria is based on “content marketing” using a mix of topical relevance, resonance / engagement on the topic with the audience and reach, or network size. According to Traackr….
