This week in the mail, I got an $18 bottle of wine, that usually has $11 shipping, for just $4.95. Â Why? Well, I received a $25 gift card to an online wine shop, just for having a highÂ KloutÂ score.
Klout measures yourÂ influencerÂ score, based on how active you are onÂ FacebookÂ andÂ Twitter, and other social networks. It tells you who you influence, as well as what subjects you are influential about.
While I uncovered Klout over a year ago, what really has me jazzed up about the site is a new section called Klout Perks, where companies from Subway toÂ Score BigÂ are giving away free samples and credits to influencers. Â I walked away with a $25 credit to Score Big as well as $25 toÂ One Hope WineÂ â€“ not too bad for just tweeting daily or so for the past two years!
If you are always tweeting or on Facebook, consider using Klout to find out your score. Â And donâ€™t worry if your score is a little low â€“ the more you interact with Klout and sync social networks, the more your score can go up. Â Let us know if you get any cool perks!
