Thinkers360 named in The 10 Most Disruptive Companies to Watch in 2021
Thinkers360 was recently named by Analytics Insight as one of The 10 Most Disruptive Companies to Watch in 2021.
In their story, Analytics Insight interviewed Yessi Sembergman, Head of Community Recognition & Development, Thinkers360 and shared how the company is the world’s first business-to-business influencer marketplace connecting global brands and audiences with the world’s premier thought leaders and authentic influencers for game-changing results. Here’s an extract from their story…
Founded in 2017, Thinkers360 is the world’s first open platform for thought leaders and influencers to share opportunities, promote and advance their expertise. Organizations and agencies use the company’s tools for finding and working with the world’s premier thought leaders and authentic influencers as well as showcasing their own executives, thought leaders, and content among their opt-in B2B community that has over 60M followers on social media combined.
Growing organically and focusing obsessively on the success and satisfaction of its members, it has already eclipsed many gig economy startups that have received millions of dollars in funding.
According to Thinkers360’s Head of Community Recognition and Development, Yessi Sembergman, “A unique aspect of our business model is that the Thinkers360 takes a cross-narrative approach, breaking the silos, with a holistic look across a thought leader’s collected works – across authoring, influencing, and speaking – not solely focused on social media alone. This provides brands who are looking to find and work with thought leaders and influencers far more analytics and insights, and more selection, so they can work with exactly the right experts for their niche.”
Striking the Right Chord
By breaking down and working across the silos of thought leadership and democratizing to a broader base of experts, Thinkers360 hit the right chord to disrupt traditional business categories including gig economy marketplaces, influencer marketing, and speaker bureaus as well as research and advisory. Many of these business categories are still high-cost, high-friction for enterprise buyers due to intermediaries who have been operating partially-digitized business models that are no longer sustainable.
Using Analytics for Good
Thinkers360’s in-depth analytics are solving pressing issues for marketers. As an example, influencer marketing is projected to be a $15B market by 2022. While this prediction holds on to its claims, influencer marketing fraud currently equates to 15% of the advertiser’s spending. Thinkers360 solves the “fake follower” problem so B2B brands can find and work with authentic thought leaders and influencers. The company achieved this with a patent-pending algorithm measuring authentic thought leadership looking far beyond social media alone.
