Top Influencers

In 2015, social media usage in Latin America (LATAM) countries far surpassed that of the United States. While 23% of U.S. adults were active on Twitter, an impressive 57% of Latin American adults have interacted with the social network. Latin America is a “mobile first” region with the fourth-largest mobile market in the world.

Latin America is Mobile (and Social) First

Due to this region’s mobile adoption and social media usage, marketers in LATAM are turning towards influencers to engage their audiences and drive impact for their brands. (Traackr has recently expanded coverage to many Latin American countries in response to this trend.)

If you frequently read this blog then the names Lee Odden, Joe Pulizzi and Mark Schaefer are probably all too familiar. These are some of the top marketing influencers paving the way in content marketing, SEO, and influencer marketing best practices. Although these are familiar names to North American marketers, who holds the attention of Latin American marketers?
