Issaquah, Washington (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
Should brands and businesses pay attention to their Klout score? Susan Gilbert, marketing expert and author of the new Klout eBook, KLOUT SCORE: Social Media Influence, How to Gain Exposure and Increase Your Klout, says, “Yes!” Along with her how-to instructions, she more importantly covers why you need to know about Klout and other new social media scoring tools. Topics covered include how to get started, learn to engage your audience and build influence, along with how to increase your score.
“Klout isn’t about online popularity,” Gilbert said. “It’s a versatile research tool that other people use to make real decisions about working with you – whether you are aware of it or not.”
Gilbert added that professionals who use Klout can get a sense for how powerful someone’s social media influence is, and also to some extent their real world influence. “People often use Klout to research those they’re considering working with,” Gilbert said. “For example, if you reach out to a potential business lead, they might look at your Klout score to see if you’re a credible person in your industry.”

“Just because someone has the word “guru” in their twitter bio or buys thousands of followers doesn’t mean they actually know what they’re talking about,” said Amanda Dodge in her article on Copypress.com. “By measuring influence, (as Klout defines it: the ability to drive action) users could gauge the quality or respect for that person in their community.” Dodge said that marketers can also use Klout to measure which tweets and posts are most effective along with the level of engagement.
