How To Find Your Top Twitter Influencers – For Free

We all love free stuff, right? And we particularly love when that ‘free something’ offers valuable info about our brands’ top social influencers.

Sound too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. But don’t take our word for it – check it out.

We’ll jump right into it: identifies the people who are bringing the most visits or pageviews to your website from Twitter – and gives you an easy (and fun) way to engage with them.

All you need to do is join and add your landing page, blog, or website’s Google Analytics and it will tell you the top five people bringing you the most traffic (the most visits and pageviews). And once you have the list, you have two options. You can set up prizes to reward your top influencers (also free) or you can just reach out on your own.

Launching a Twitter campaign on and making the top five influencers public encourages competition for your prize. What does a campaign look like? Check out this example from Brandfluencers where they’re rewarding their influencers with a book on influence.

So why is this free? What’s the catch? Here you go, from the horse’s mouth (the horse being Brandfluencers): was developed by social media ROI measurement firm Campalyst. Our main product, enterprise social media management and analytics suite, had an extremely successful experience with identifying Twitter users based on the actions they do on the website – and we wanted to showcase the technology as well as share this feature with a broader market!

And there you have it! They’re obviously taking their PR to the next level – and that’s a-okay by us. So check out brandfluencers and then pop over and give Campalyst a shout-out too as a thank you for the freebie. It’s only polite. And let us know what you think!
