Tarah Remington was in touch with Influencer50 today, with a heads up that the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) has released a draft of the WOMMA Influencer Handbook for public comment. The handbook is about best practices in the use of influencer marketing:
“WOMMA believes influencer marketing is real and here to stay. It is not a myth, or a passing fad, or the latest trend. Rather, it is one component of successful word of mouth marketing programs.”
The WOMMA handbook references Nick and Duncan’s book, Influencer Marketing: Who Really Influencers Your Customers, in the bibliography on books, white papers, and research.
WOMMA is calling for public comment from marketers, bloggers, and consumers in order to make this tool as useful and effective as possible.
Update: Found a cameo post by one of the authors, Sean O’Driscoll.
