Why I’m a Geek For Klout

October 3, 2011

 Two questions:  Do you like free stuff?  …and have you heard of Klout?  Klout is a aggregator that tallies up your usage of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram, etc. to not only measure what topics you talk about most, but how influential you are about those topics.  Oh ya, and it’s FREE, and they give you stuff for FREE (*Frugal-girl fan scream here!*)  It’s fascinating to see what things you talk about & promote the most (some of them might surprise you) and to see what gets the most traction with your friends and tweeps.

But while I love that kind of data as much as the next geek- the best part of Klout is totally the perks!  Since Klout measures what you’re influential about, they can team you up with free stuff from different companies that fit what you’re interested in!  Some perks are open to everyone, but I love qualifying for prizes for my favorite topics!


I joined Klout 2 months ago and have received some great stuff-  early access to the show New Girl (before it came out) and they even sent me some sweet nerdy swag (seen above, + a sweatshirt that’s not pictured).  I also am getting a 30 Rock Season 4 DVD, a $25 gift certificate to Handbags.com plus a free set of mini-cards from Moo.com (I only had to pay $5 for shipping, I was stoked!).  I was pretty surprised that I have not found anything I don’t like about this site, they make everyone feel like a rockstar- no pesky emails, no unwanted ads, just some great stuff!

I know people get hung up on getting a “score,” but you don’t have to have a high score to qualify for prizes.  The average score is around 20, and as long as you’re signed up, check on the perk page once in awhile (so you can catch a deal before it closes) you’re golden!

Also, I want to mention- if you’re a blogger and you’re active on social media, having a Klout score about the average of 20, can be a great stat to have on your side if you want to monetize your blog, find sponsors or do product reviews.  If you’re not a blogger, you still benefit from feeling cool and getting free stuff- it’s a win win!


So, have you used Klout? What do you think of it?
