A few sites are emerging, in a future post I will talk about Empire Avenue which I enjoy, but still don’t understand the purpose of quite yet, so for now I’ll tell you a bit about Klout.
Here is my Klout link Tracy Repchuk if you want to connect.
Klout was founded in 2008 to help you measure and leverage your influence – your ability to invoke action.
For example, Oprah’s opinion on literature has inspired millions to read titles from her book club. But you don’t have to be Oprah to have influence.
You influence your friend when she listens to a song you recommend on Facebook.
You influence your coworker when he checks out an article you posted on LinkedIn and shares it with someone else.
Social actions like these are a reflection of influence.
Klout measures influence online using data from your social networks.
Anywhere you have an online presence, you have the opportunity to influence people by creating or sharing content that inspires actions such as likes, retweets, comments and more.
The more engagement your posts receive, the more influential you are.
Klout uses this information to provide you a Klout Score that measures your overall influence.
So what do you do with this score?
Klout can help you unlock new opportunities: from using your influence to network into a new job, or getting the chance to check out upcoming products and experiences for free, our goal is to help you understand and leverage your influence.
The average Klout score is 20. I am currently sitting at 50.
Klout provides powerful analysis and tools to help you more clearly understand your own influence, your network’s influence, and the topical interests that make each of us special.
Why Use It?
Using Klout, you can improve your use of social media and better reach your network.
You can benchmark your success. Your Klout Score updates daily and your dashboard gives you insights as to why your Score has changed.
You can learn about your influence network. On your Klout profile you can see who you’re influencing by your content and who influences you.
In addition, Klout has run Perks with over 100 companies and Perks have been claimed over 300,000 times.
So would I recommend Klout?
Yes – If only to secure your name – and have a one stop area to check out what kind of impact your social media posts are having, so you can evaluate how to better spend your time.
See you on the other side
Your Power Business Mentor
