True, there’s a lot to love—and a lot to be skeptical about—when it comes to the growth of social media influencers who claim expertise in the areas of health, fitness, nutrition, mindfulness and all things wellness. But despite the skeptics, there’s also a lot of good that can come from sharing and inspiring wellness through digital channels.
New Hope Network recognizes this juxtaposition, as well as the need for vetting this growing space and qualifying the predominant voices influencing today’s health conversation online. That’s why we’ve dutifully scoured profiles, read blogs and followed accounts in order to release our preliminary Top 100 Responsible Health & Wellness Influencers of 2020.
We gave special precedence to those influencers who can back up their content with credentials, ranging from registered dietitians and certified health coaches to personal trainers and experienced yoga instructors.
Other criteria included the quality and integrity of content, the consistency of wellness inspiration and an authentic voice, the ability to connect and engage with followers, and their innovative approach to messaging and content offerings—ranging from books and podcasts to plans and downloads.
