Chances are you’ve already heard of Klout. There’s also a good chance that unless you make your lively hood by creating web content you may actually not really know much about it.

Klout.com, as well as Kred.com and Influenster.com are all sites that measure aspects of your influence via social media. Simply put they look at how well you’re tweeting, facebooking, instagramming, etc.

You put a tweet out there and it gets retweeted, replied to and your Klout score (potentially) increases.

All three of these companies have another thing in common which is SWAG!

Yes if you’re score is high enough, you are offered a freebie from a company.

Klout generally has demands but hope’s you’ll tweet, hashtag and say something lovely about the product they’ve just sent you. Occasionally you’ll have to visit a website before you’re perk is shipped.

Influenster typically has a small list of tasks, including tweeting and hashtagging, visiting a website and leaving a review.

Kred… well I’ve yet to see a Kred offer I wanted to jump on yet, so I’m actually not 100% sure what the process is like. But I assume it’s similiar to the above.

In the coming weeks I’ll be exploring these sites and what they offer a little more throughly.

So what have I gotten?

These top the list; A subscribtion box from Dollar Shave Club with a Razor I’m still using months later and some Shave butter that I just ran out of (that was a smooth shave) and from Influenster Sony’s Bluetooth Speaker ball.
On the low end, I’ve been offered eMagazine Subscriptions, McDonald’s gift cards and websites memberships… Somewhere inbetween there was chocolate and that was damn close to beating the razor.
If you’ve been paying attention to my instagram and/or twitter you’ll have noticed I was able to increase my klout score in the past week from 62 to 67 (and apparently still climbing). I think it’ll plateau out soon as the higher your score gets the harder it is to advance.
I’m currently waiting to see exactly where that flatline happens but then I’ll be posting my article on just what I’ve been doing to raise it.
Stay tuned for more on Klout, Kred and Influenster and if you know any other sites like these please let me know!
