If you’ve listened to this show for any length of time, you’ve heard me recommend the podcast of Scott Guthrie. He’s the consultant and industry thought leader behind the Influencer Marketing Lab. He has a great podcast that I recommend periodically to you here. He’s also been named one of Talking Influence’s Top 50 people in the industry, which is an annual recognition, but he’s been on it probably every year they’ve done it.

Scott consults, but he also is a frequent host of the Influencer Marketing Show, also a Talking Influence production and is frequently quoted and interviewed on the industry, mostly in Europe and the United Kingdom, but also around the world, including by media outlets here in the U.S. He also authors the Fourth Floor Weekly Email Newsletter which I’ve bragged about before as probably the best industry news resource for influencer marketing out there.

The long and short of it is that Scott is probably the most knowledgeable person on the planet about influencer marketing. His background is in the PR and comms world. He spent quite a bit of time at Ketchum, but is an MBA and business consultant going back to the early days of social media.

Recently, Scott launched the Influencer Marketing Trade Body in the UK with six big-name agency and company sponsors. That body is looking to become the trade association for influencer marketing there and unify other bodies around the world like the American Influencer Council, to put forth a unified set of standards for ethics and such globally. The idea is a much needed one in the business and the IMTB is certainly in good hands with Scott at the helm.

Scott and I had a great discussion about a number of topics including the IMTB, the trend of influencers becoming creative directors, the influencer pay gap and a lot more. If you are looking for what the top thinkers in the industry are thinking about things … you’ve come to the right place today. Scott Guthrie is one of them and he’s here.
