SORT BY Relevancy
I have a friend who speaks professionally. She has been using Facebook ads to increase the number of fans on her business page. Apparently, that's what event planners and speaker sites want to see, a large following. In years gone by, there was a trend on Facebook called "Fan Page Friday." You would post a link to your business page and everyone would like it. It was an artificial way to increase your page likes, but is that really a good strategy.
In this episode, I'll share with you how we are being measured on our influence by various sites like Klout, Kred, Brandify and PeerIndex. I'll share why I think this is how you should measure your influence, rather than the number of followers, fans, etc you have on each of your social media sites.

I have blogged and just spoken a lot about Klout and social media influence. Today we are definitely not going to be focusing on Klout however, the focus certainly will be on the topic of influencer marketing. My guest today on Getting Social with Miriam is Peter DeSouza. Peter is the part-owner of a company called Sociolus, which was established in 2011 and he is going to tell us all about Sociolus, and how it is there to help small business owners use social media to get closer to customers.

Peter has spent time at both Accenture and Deloitte working as a management consultant in the technology, sales and marketing space before focusing full-time Sociolus last year.

Love it or hate it, Klout is one of the most widespread measures of on line influence. Reaching beyond just how many followers it looks at how often people engage you in conversations and share your content. It evaluates not just the volume of conversation, but the level of conversations you have with people who are influential. It is quite common among members of the Indianapolis social media community to compare Klout scores and tactics to improve them. Why? People with high Klout scores are sought after by advertisers, given free perks ( Klout rewards) to describe their interactions with a product. But it is a far from perfect measure. Joining Allison and I this week are Scott Howard, Kevin Mullet and Randy Clark to talk about the pros and cons of Klout. ( A word of warning, with this rowdy group heckling is to be expected.)
There has been significant discussion around the topic of Social Influence tool Klout in the recent months. As the service continues to grow so have the rumblings of disconentent by some.

Megan Berry - Marketing Manager of Klout Danny Brown - Director of Retention and Social Media at Jugnoo, Inc. Kirsten Wright - of Social5150 and your host Joe Hackman. The objective of this panel is to have a meaningful discussion about the problems and benefits of Klout and to challenge the panelists to provide constructive discourse on how Klout can improve and become more useful to a broader audience.
