What Makes a Person Influential?

Barry Feldman: October 26, 2014 | Influencer marketing, Personal branding | No Comments »

what makes a person influentialInfluence fascinates me. What about you?

If you read my blog, you may have picked up on the fact that I’ve been reading, learning and writing about many topics related to influence: personal branding and influence marketing, the power of expertise, authority and thought leadership.

I read (and saved) an extremely popular Forbes post by Mark Fidelman, 25 Things Influential People Do Better than Anyone Else in which Mark attempts to answer:

“How do people become truly influential in the social age?”

Clearly, Mark and I admire many of the same people. His article is full of examples where he showcases leaders in new media marketing and speaks to their qualities.

Monsters of Influencer

The Forbes article inspired me to create my take on the qualities of a person of influence. It became a slide deck with a fun Halloween-themed twist and earned a spot as SlideShare of the Day.

I hope you enjoy it, share it, and comment below with your feedback and any ideas you have about the qualities of influential people. Get to the point >>
