Just Do It


Klout: Why You Should!

Are you confused about Klout?  Does it make you excited and terrified at the same time?  It should! Not really sure if it is accurate? Afraid of Klout assigning a number to you?  Well, guess what - even if you aren't signed up for Klout, chances are you already have a number by your name.  And as Klout continues to develop their social influence measurin' algorithm - it is going to be a contributing factor for how others evaluate your true influence!  Soon the days of just viewing numbers - (how many followers on any given media) will be gone - and all that will be left is the big word for your true influence - "ENGAGEMENT!"

Klout is the strongest measurer of engagement to date - and people are already experiencing perks of higher scores on Klout.  I read this article recently and it began to shift my perspective on the importance of being able to measure engagement across multiple platforms.  I also realized that beyond Klout's hit or miss perks - there are actually establishments: hotels, restaurants, airlines - etc. willing to throw in perks to people of influence.  We've all read from time to time how someone with a massive following has been wronged by a brand and until they actually used their influence to grab their attention they were ignored - but not afterwards - no - brands are learning (sometimes the hard way) that online influence is something to be reckoned with.

Why don't you go ahead and get signed up today!  And then come back and get a boost in your score immediately:

Today Angela is hosting her first ever link up - Kickin' it on Klout - K+ Blog Hop!
