Do you engage with users on your social accounts but still find your Klout score to be lacking? Social media expert Susan Gilbert wants you to know that your Klout score can be increased in four easy steps. The social media expert writes: “In today’s social media world it is vital to track your influence, especially when building a name or a brand. That is where Klout comes into play”.
If you are unfamiliar with Klout it is essentially a platform that measures a persons social influence while bringing them together with brands.
While most users can determine their social influence by examining their follower counts, others want a more direct relational score.
Here are Susan Gilbert’s four tips for improving your Klout score:
Content must be worth sharing
The content you create should be interesting, useful and unique. You can share tips, quotes, photos and content that are relevant to your market. Good content get re-tweeted and shared which factors into the algorithm of your Klout score.
Kick off discussion
Getting a conversation or discussion going with your fan and followers is way to increase your Klout Score. You can do this by asking questions about your niche, wishing people a great day or weekend, and joining conversations in blog chats.
Do not neglect other Networks
Klout measures your social media reach; so, make sure to connect all the networks where you have a presence – that includes Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube, Instagram, etc. Your real influence can only be measured by Klout if you have connected all the social media sites where you participate.
Don’t miss influecners if your niche
In the real world it’s good to engage with people who can help you step up a level and that is true with Klout. Make sure you engage with high influencer users. Make sure you tweet or respond to their tweets and posts in such a way that they can respond back which creates a conversation and a relationship between you. That’s really what Klout is all about.
