PeerReach: find and understand social media influencers

PeerReach is a tool to find the influencers in a topic, language and geographic area. But it does more than help you find them, it helps you understand their main areas of interest and influence in each one of them.

You probably thought of other tools that are stablished in the market- like Klout, PeerIndex and Kredly- that already do something similar. These competitors are focused on their ranking number and are not so good in defining the right areas of interest and influence.

When I first saw my profile in PeerReach and those of a couple friends I was impacted by the quality and relevance of their categorization.

The service is free for regular users, and business (marketing agencies, communication professionals, etc.) can pay for an API to integrate PeerReach with their own tools.


Nico Schoonderwoerd is the cofounder of an international team directed from Amsterdam. They have recently raised €250 000.

Enrique Dans and company management: startup model vs traditional companies

“The efficiency gap between startups and companies managed in a traditional way is widening”

Enrique Dans was one of the many great people the members of the Webmission met during Evento Blog España. He is one of the brightests minds in the Spanish speaking web scene, with a very interesting view on the business and sociological part of it. If you are looking for Spanish influencers not to miss, Enrique is the nº1 you should keep in mind.

On top of it, he is just great. A bloguer at heart, he lives by the principle of sharing knowledge and promotes access to himself with a full disclosure of his contact details.

A lot of people talk the talk, Enrique walks the walk.
