  • 11. Research MethodologyIdentifying influencers is an important part of social media marketing. However when undertakinginfluencer analysis, considering both aspects of the coin are essential for a balanced perspective i.e.using quantitative as well as qualitative measures.Platform Selection – Twitter: Although Obopay is present on other social media platforms, apart fromTwitter, given the fast paced nature of the medium, Twitter was selected as the platform of choice. Alsoas compared to other social media, Twitter is more real-time. In addition, Twitter users are bloggers,vloggers, community members and active online participants in Internet culture(http://thenextweb.com/twitter/2011/08/18/twitter-users-are-more-likely-to-impact-your-brand-than-any-other-social-network/) thus, making them an apt audience to monitor for online conversations.Relevancy: We decided to first and foremost define who is relevant to us. We researched people whoconversed on Mobile Commerce, Mobile Banking, Mobile payments, Mobile Money, Mobile trends, etc.and who were influencers on Twitter in terms of number of followers. A complete list of 50 such Twitterinfluencers was collated, out of which, the top 20 were shortlisted as being most relevant to us.Use of Influencer Tools: Next we decided to use Influencer Tools as a starting point to help us find thegeneral direction to move forward. Klout score measures influence based on your ability to drive action(True Reach, Amplification and Network). Tweetlevel engagement considers individuals participationand interaction on twitter community. You can read about Klout & Tweetlevel’s approaches here andhere respectively. This approach provided a broad scope to our purpose when used in tandem. Twtrlandwas used to create a detailed summary of a person’s Twitter activities since the start, thereby helpingidentification of influence indicators such as Retweets, Followers and @Mentions.Integration with Other Data to Gain Clarity: We start with a list of a few hundred spanning NorthAmerican, South East Asia, African and the Indian region on Twitter. Find their Klout and TweetLevelscores. Calculate average of the two scores. The resultant score, i.e. the Obopay Influencer Score wasthus arrived at to rank the influencers.
