There is one sure way to get people attention, and that is to compare them to others in their industry or sector. A recent controversy spawned this list. In 2011 I experimented with various SEO techniques. SEO is the science of optimising web pages to rank higher in search engines like Google or Bing.
For the last 15 years on the Web, this was the best way people found your website. The growing influence of social media is shifting the local of control from Google and Yahoo as sources of traffic.
Anyway, we present here the Top 10 South African Motivational Speakers on Twitter:
|Vusi Thembekwayo||6608||Vusi is a Speaker, Venture Capitalist, Entrepreneur and Father. Ranked 10th in ‘Johannesburg’ on twitaholic I do not understand why his tweets are currently protected.After 10667 tweets, and a new Facebook campaign to “Stop NYDA” it’s clear that Mr Thembekwayo values this particular social media platform highly.|
|Estienne de Beer||1590||Estienne de Beer is a Wildlife Motivational Speaker to corporate companies with his 1 hour inspirational talk = Meerkat Motivation for the Marketplace. After 201 tweets it seems mostly like self promotion and no real conversations. Low frequency twitter users are unable to leverage social media influence. Therefore they’re ranked 154th in their ‘South Africa’ on twitaholic!|
|Guy Lundy||1550||Guy broke into the public consciousness because of his book “South Africa: The Good News.” As CEO of Accelerate Cape Town, he is a well-respected futurist, strategist, writer, speaker and seems like Clem Sunter’s heir apparent in my view.|
|Douglas Kruger||1301||Douglas is an acquaintance and fellow Toastmasters member. Professional Speaker, Author, and Trainer with several books under his belt. He speaks on expert-positioning and hamster-thinking. He reached 2nd place at Toastmasters global speaking competition in 2004. His tweets are informative, funny and personal.|
|Michael Jackson||1057||Mr Jackson is a worldwide professional speaker on global business trends & change. With 1834 tweets he is reasonable active and tweeting Zwelinzima Vavi and other high profile people. He is ranked 1st in the location ‘Usually on an aircraft’ and has a great sense of humour.|

My friend and UFOlogist Cristo Louw brought him to my attention a few years ago. He’s also the most recent President of the Professional Speakers Association|
|Jono Quail||963||Jono came to my attention because of his run in with the law regarding his car number plate. He is founder & CEO, Lifebuild.com & Inspirational Speaker, Trainer, Values & Transformation Expert, Business Consultant, Life & Success Coach & Spiritual Teacher. After 1657 tweets he is active.|
|Robin Banks||578||Robin is the official trainer of John Kehoe’s MindPower seminars in South Africa. He’s an international Motivational Speaker and Mind Power Coach in his own right now. With only 25 tweets he is clearly lacking a strategy or a PA savvy enough to update his Twitter.|
