Understanding Klout as a brokerage business

Understanding Klout as a brokerage business | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

Klout, the San Francisco based start up that measures your social influence, was acquired last week by Lithium Technologies in a deal that is supposedly meant to redefine both companies. Since its launch in 2008, Klout has apparently scored 500 million profiles and handles 50 billion API calls monthly, yet its day-to-day relevance remains a mystery for many.


On the surface, users link available social profiles to Klout in order to be scored. While a possible humble brag, a Klout score doesn’t necessarily translate into something useful. In 2012, Wiredsuggested candidates in social trades were being disqualified from jobs if their Klout score, depicting online influence, was too low.

5 Tools to Increase Your Social Media ROI

5 Tools to Increase Your Social Media ROI | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

There’s a lot of hype around influence. Sure, there’s Klout, Peer Index and the like, and maybe they’ll figure it out and the metric for influence will become more valuable.

Pam Moore recently put it best in a comment on Social Media Today. She said (and I paraphrase)

“more than influence isn’t it the ROI that’s really important?”

Increasing your Social ROI is vital and you should be asking:

Are you converting leads?Are you increasing following?Is your engagement going up?

These are the questions you must be asking yourself if you are to run a success social marketing campaign.

Here are 5 Tools to ensure you’re getting the maximum ROI from your social efforts, and improving your social conversions.

Brilliant Tips On Building Social Collaboration a #mustread | Social Media Today

Brilliant Tips On Building Social Collaboration a #mustread | Social Media Today | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it
From Entertainment to Collaboration outlines the second transition that a company must engage in when moving from advertising to engagement as a core marketing strategy.

 

Marty Note
This is a MUST READ brilliant post my friend Mark Traphagen (@MarkTraphagen) alerted me to because I've been writing about how brands don't get social (Social Media: It's The Conversation Stupid http://sco.lt/7iZVUP ).

I love the ditch digging details Ted shares in this great post. He all but maps the process of creating successful social collaboration with:

Collaboration can take a number of forms: example archetypes are:

1) commentary on content

2) co-creation of content

3) user-generated content

4) collective action or problem solving

###
That is BRILLIANT work. I've been focused on the conversation, but Ted is right. The conversation is the medium, the currency. The payoff for being present and engaged with customers is collaboration. Great stuff and a must read for any brand or Internet marketer (and there are 2 more installments coming).
