You’ve got Klout!? | Brian Solis

You’ve got Klout!? | Brian Solis | Branding and Influence Building |

Whether or not you agree with the idea of assigning a score to individuals based on their actions in popular social networks, the reality is that Pandora’s Box has already been open. People check the scores like investors check stock prices. Brands reward “influential” consumers with products and services. Employers consult scores to lure seemingly more qualified candidates. This is already happening and as a result, there’s much to learn.

Cindy Ratzlaff ★'s insight:

Brands are increasingly interested in social influencers. Social influencers, such as Mommy Bloggers, have been turning influence into profit for a couple of years now. Niche social influencers can strategically create social leadership and therefore a profit center with their social media if they are rigorous about the brand reputation. Bottom line: Klout is becoming increasingly important.
