All influencers mentioned in their list has been given a score depending on their contributions to Thinkers360. And to figure out their score, “they have taken a holistic view of thought leaders and experts, beyond their social media activity, and look across all the hats they may wear – such as academic, author, consultant, entrepreneur, influencer and speaker – and all the types of thought leadership content they produce.”

Thinkers360 have followed a thorough methodology based on an in-house developed algorithm. This patent-pending algorithm helps to produce leaderboards that look across all thought leader roles and across the quantity and quality of their thought leadership content. It provides a valuable measure of thought leadership content, encourages genuine content creation, incorporates social media influence as one of the measures, and encourages richer profiles and portfolios through gamification.

“Of course, no measurement system related to influence or thought leadership is perfect, but the thought leadership scoring system within Thinkers360 is a highly-differentiated approach to help you identify authentic thought leaders – looking far beyond social media – serving as the tip of the spear for your B2B influencer marketing objectives,” the platform stated.

About Thinkers360

Thinkers360 was founded to help solve some of the current issues in the thought leadership “industry”. Today, the thought leadership ecosystem is highly-fragmented and often closed to most outsiders. Once a specialized art, practiced by a few, thought leadership is now a widespread discipline practiced by many – beyond the current 1% that the “industry” currently serves.

Many upcoming thought leaders and experts aren’t yet social media stars, celebrity authors, influencers or speakers, but are leading authorities in their fields. Both established and emerging thought leaders need new ways to measure their expertise – looking beyond influence – and a platform to advance their audience and impact.

Their mission is to disrupt the proprietary thought leadership “industry” and open it up to a wider array of established and emerging academics, authors, entrepreneurs, inventors, influencers and speakers – helping them to succeed in making the world a better place.
