In October of 2009, Invesp Consulting started researching and\u00a0selecting 100 of the most influential marketers online -- those trailblazers that have their finger on the pulse of the online world and lead the way for others, with torches in hand. Attempting to rank online marketers can be viewed as\u00a0a bit of a thankless effort.\u00a0 Let's face it, you can't include everyone.\u00a0\u00a0I, myself, can think of a few people who I feel should have been included and weren't.\u00a0 But Invesp worked to formulate their criteria and eventually, they whittled it down to four main requirements and then selected the top 100 accordingly. So, who made the top 10, you ask? There were some names that you'd probably expect to see - and then there were some names that were surprising to see.\u00a0 Here are the top 10 most influential online marketers of 2009, as chosen by Invesp: Aaron Wall, SEOBook Seth Godin, Seth's Blog Brian Clark, Copyblogger Chris Brogan, ChrisBrogan.com Bryan Eisenberg, BrianEisenberg.com Danny Sullivan, Third Door Media Rebecca McKinnon, Global Voices Avinash Kaushik, Occam's Razor Dharmesh Shah, Hubspot Rand Fishkin, SEOmoz And there you have it - the Invesp list of the top 10 influential marketers of 2009. But wait - there are 90 more!\u00a0 And I imagine you'd like to know who they are, too. To give you an overview, you'll see some new names and you'll also see some new businesses.\u00a0\u00a0You'll also see some businesses\u00a0that you normally wouldn't expect to see in the world of online marketing - like Ford Motor Company and its head of social media,\u00a0Scott Monty.\u00a0 There are representatives from unexpected industries, too, like Leo Babauta of Zen Habits, who writes about\u00a0health and wellness.\u00a0 And then there's Glen Allsopp of ViperChill.\u00a0 Glen started his first website at the tender age of 15.\u00a0\u00a0By the age of 17 he was earning several thousand dollars a month.\u00a0 At 18 he was headhunted to become the Social Media Manager for some big players - and at 20, he's a world traveler earning\u00a0a monthly five figure income.\u00a0 I should also mention that another one of the names you will see (#49) is our very own Anita Campbell. Enough talking, it's time to reveal the full list of\u00a0 Top 100 Influential Marketers of 2009.\u00a0 After reading through them, what do you think?\u00a0 Did they miss anyone?\u00a0 Who else would you put on the list?\u00a0 Maybe we can give them some suggestions for next year, here. . .
