Your Klout Score allows other people to know how influential you are on social networks. Since raising a Klout Score seems impossible, it is very easy to appreciate the people who have high Klout Scores. In addition, the people with higher Klout scores get more opportunities. The people who have a Klout Score of 80 get more public speaking opportunities than the people who have a Klout Score of 60. If they both wrote social media books, chances are the customer will buy the book from the person with the Klout Score of 80. Some jobs use Klout Score as a deciding factor of whether someone gets hired or not. Basically, your Klout Score is super important, and if you want to raise that Klout Score (highly recommended for anyone), here are 11 tips.
- Connect more social networks to your Klout account. The more social networks you connect to Klout, the higher your score goes up. Your influence is not an average of your social networks. It is an accumulation of your social networks.
- Interact with your followers. If you do not have a lot of conversations with your followers, don’t wait for someone to start the conversation. You need to start the conversations you have with your followers. That way, more of these people will interact with you and possibly favorite/retweet your tweets.
- Post content that people would want to share. The amount of times your content gets shared has a big impact on how high your Klout score goes. Instead of posting random content that few people would want to share, only post the type of content that you know your targeted followers would share.
- Post content more frequently. If you send out a tweet at 3 pm, and your followers go on Twitter at 3:05 pm, then you’re out of luck. By posting content more frequently, more of your followers will be able to see your tweets. This will also boost your chances of getting a retweet.
- Post more pictures. Pictures have been proven to increase interaction on social networks. Some of the pictures you post may get shared five times more than your posts without pictures.
- Use Twitter’s new design to pin one of your tweets to the top of your profile page. Have you ever had the tweet that got retweeted 20 times, but as you tweet more often, the tweet that once got 20 retweets was then forgotten? Twitter’s new design allows you to pin one of your tweets at the top of your profile. Even if you sent out a tweet a few years ago that got over 20 retweets, you can bring that tweet back to the top of your profile to keep it current.
- Interact with your friends on Facebook. Not only will your friends like to talk with you on Facebook, but that also boosts your Klout Score. Friends will also be very likely to like your pictures.
- Be omnipresent on all social networks. Remember that Klout calculates your score as an accumulation of your social networks. The more active you are on them, the more impact each of your social networks has on your Klout Score.
- Share other people’s content. When you share someone else’s content, your followers will realize that the content you shared is really good (since it’s not your own and you were willing to share it).
- Retweet, favorite, like, and share other people’s posts. These people will either return the favor or interact with you.
- Look at your Klout Score statistics. Your Klout Score statistics will allow you to see when your score went up and when it went down. By looking at these statistics and remembering how you got the big increase or decrease, you will be able to identify what you need to do to boost your Klout Score and what you need to avoid so your Klout Score does not decrease.
Those are the 11 ways to boost your Klout Score. Although it may take a while before your Klout Score goes up by 20 or so, implementing these tactics will eventually allow you to get there. I used these tactics to become one of the Top 10% of all social media influencers. What are your thoughts on the list? Do you have any additional tips?
