What Is an Executive Influencer (and How Can You Become One)?

If you’re at the top of your game and need a new challenge for 2021, it’s time to become an executive influencer.

Executive influencers are business leaders who impact dialogue on a large scale, often through leveraging social media, press, and authorship. They’re the executives who are using their vast experience, training, intellect, and knowledge to build a reputation as an industry leader while at the same time helping and inspiring others through their insights. When executive influencers talk, the business world listens.

Here are a few proven steps to start establishing yourself as the go-to source for insights in your chosen niche:

1. Choose your platform — different platforms are better suited to different styles and industries.
2. Choose your niche — identify what you love to do and focus on that.
3. Be unique — authenticity is key to building a solid reputation.
4. Create a social strategy — build a strategy for creating content that will get you to the top of search algorithms.
5. Deliver the content — create useful, relevant content that gives value to your audience.
6. Expand your online network — partner with other executive influencers.
7. Engage your audience — thank them and encourage them to take action.
8. Track performance and be consistent — use key metrics to see what’s been successful, and keep at it.
