Marketing technology thought leaders and hands-on pros are important to follow in order to share ideas and learn from. In many ways MarTech is the greater evolution from Marketing Automation.

Using LittleBird, we have identified the Top 50 MarTech Insiders with strong social influence and insider connections.  The caveat is we selectively removed some folks, like myself and Matt Heinz from the list in order to focus on people who are influential outside of agencies. There are familiar faces and many new people you should follow. We enjoy identifying insiders with LittleBird because it gets away from common popularity lists.

These MarTech Insiders focus heavily on the dynamics of marketing technology from macro and micro perspectives. Many are entrepreneurs. Others are analysts and authors. Some are “doers” who successfully innovate marketing operations with martech at major corporations.

You can follow the entire list here:
