BlogHer12, the annual blogging conference for women, kicked off this week in Silicon Alley, New York City’s answer to Silicon Valley. The opening event “Celebrating BlogHer12”, hosted by WIM Accelerator and Levo League, was jammed packed with bloggers, entrepreneurs, big brands, agencies and management consultants, media and publishers, financiers, retailers and interns.
At the forefront of the event was a Kred Leaderboard for BlogHer, displaying the social influence and outreach of participants using #BlogHer hashtags in real-time. It generated huge interest with tweeters and onlookers checking their Kred scores, sharing +Kred, and learning about our transparent algorithm. They also had a chance to talk about new Kred releases, such as Kred Rewards and Kred for CRM.
Kred held the social influence spotlight smack in the global center of media, advertising, finance and retail. There were tons of people ready for transparent, meaningful measurement of their influence, and looking to tie engagement to measurable marketing and sales goals.
Special Kred thanks to WIM Accelerator CEO Kelly Hoey and Levo League CEO Caroline Ghosn for inviting Kred to participate in this important event.
