Over the past couple weeks I have been paying attention to my Klout Score. It goes up and down based on a variety of factors. Klout is a site that tries to monitor your social influence over people on the internet. It monitors how many people are seeing your posts, mainly on Twitter but says it monitors Facebook, Google +, and a few other sites out there.
I have found over the past two weeks that raising your Klout isn’t that hard. All you have to do is Tweet constantly and Tweet something interesting to get RT’s. The more people you get to respond to you and RT your message the higher your Klout score will be. I personally don’t think it has anything to do with mentions. I have around 30 mentions on average a day because I write for so many sites. So does Klout have anything to do with mentions. No…
This leads me to tweeting, does Tweeting really work? Every business wants to be online and Tweeting but does it really work? They say the average Facebook fan is worth $1/month but how much is your average Twitter follower worth. If I had to assign a cost to each of my Twitter followers it would be $-.001 per follower. Because I have never seen any positive influence or money from any of my followers. Sure, I have had a few good conversations with a few people and a few people I have gotten good information.
So this is an open question for all the people that read this post. Does Tweeting work? Let me know below how Tweeting has helped you.
