Have we reached peak influencer? People are now quitting their jobs to become full-time Instagram influencers, and self-made YouTube stars are the new Hollywood A-list. All entertainment aside, these influencers present an incredible business opportunity for brands to connect with their audiences through trusted community leaders.

We interview Jackie Sobon (a food blogger, photographer, cookbook author, and social media influencer) to get the influencer's perspective on how marketers can make these partnerships more effective — and what drives her crazy about today's influencer marketing arrangements. We also ask Lee Odden (CEO of TopRank Marketing) about the best marketing KPIs and types of content for influencer relationships, as well as the future of this emerging tactic.

You know Yelp, TripAdvisor, Amazon, Google, and other reviews are a huge part of buying journeys. But how can you use existing customer reviews in your marketing content to make the things your company says more believable? And what if you're in B2B and don't have traditional reviews to pull from?

Get the answers from two leading experts in customer testimonials and reviews: Daniel Lemin, author of "Manipurated" and head of consulting at Jay Baer's Convince & Convert; and Andy Crestodina, cofounder and strategic director of Orbit Media Studios and planner for hundreds of websites in his career.

You'll learn how to upcycle this existing testimonial content to make your marketing much more believable and resonate effectively with potential customers.

Sometimes a message, campaign, or product takes on a life of its own and becomes a legitimate movement. It seems like magic, but what really happened? Listen as Jay Baer explains what fueled the crazy success of his NYT-bestselling book "Youtility" and Sangram Vajre, CMO and co-founder of Terminus, shares how his "Flip My Funnel" concept grew a community of worldwide B2B followers. You'll hear the behind-the-scenes story that's rarely told of how these movements grew — as well as Jay and Sangram's cautionary advice about what doesn't really constitute a movement.

Seth Godin says we're living in an age where people just ignore stuff — and only the remarkable stuff will spread. If you can get your audience to share your content online, it truly can spread like wildfire. So how can we as marketers create the type of content that people actually want to share? In this episode of the Cloudcast, we learn a few principles of psychology to help us create more scientifically shareable content.

Host Heike Young talks with Dr. Susan Weinschenk, a behavioral psychologist, and Brad Beutler, a marketing manager at Sigstr who crafted a blog series that now accounts for 4 of his company's top 5 posts ever. With Brad's stories from the field and Susan's tales of science, you'll be both entertained and better trained on how to make truly shareable content for your brand.
