35 Web Analytics & Internet Marketing Experts You Should Be Following (on Twitter)

A great way to gain more understanding about web analytics and internet marketing is to learn from the experts and hear what they are saying. Obvously you can read their blogs, but another great way to gain insight into their minds is by following them on Twitter. And for those of you that have been living in a cave, Twitter is like a ‘mini-blog’ tool, that allows you to read and write many simple one line posts. This allows for a different style of communication (others often reveal great links they find), and even allows for asking questions to others. Which is great if you don’t know who to turn to for help! So, I have created a list of the 35 web analytics and internet marketing experts you should be following on twitter…

    Hey Rich,

    Thanks for adding me. I kept getting all of these followers and I was wondering where they came from :-)

    Thanks mate! You’re not so bad yourself!

    When you going to drop some analytic knowledge bombs my way??

    Hello Rich.
    While I may agree about reading other “great minds” stuff, don’t you think that it’s time to get creative with our own stuff.
    You know the web is getting full of other peoples work. Copied, revered as gurus, mentors and whatever but with no originality.
    It’s time to stop pissing in each others pockets and get the creative brains working.
    When you follow others work you are always behind. Originality wins everytime.
    But I’ll keep my eyes open for your stuff. Cheers. The Baldchemist

    Thanks Rich for this extensive list something I have also been spending time compiling. I wanted to follow some of the best pioneers in Web Analytics and Internet Marketing. You made my job easier, its also surprising that I have been following 20/35 people you have presented here (including you). So I had to follow the rest 15!

    Thanks again! And glad the commenters are here, welcome the conversation.
