For marketers, PR professionals and customer service teams, personal influence measurement tools can save time and help facilitate business decisions.

I was able to sit down with the Peoplebrowsr team this week to get a sneak peek of a new service by the company called “Kred“.

 

They shared a quote with us.

 

Time Magazine says: Influence is impossible to measure.

 

Kred is most certainly an instant competitor to Klout, who calls its service the “Standard of Influence”. Peoplebrowsr wants to calculate influence in a different way, in a community way and transparently...
