31 Days of December Challenge - Day 15 - Do you throw your Klout around?

Mortgage and Lending with Social Media - Infinity Home Mortgage Company, Inc



I am taking Jennifer Prestwich's challenge of doing 31 one things in 31 days.

 Are you up for a Challenge? 31 Days of December Challenge

What do you have to do?  Do 1 thing per day that would further your business.  This might be a blog post, Facebook note, tweet, text, phone call or email.  It could be a newsletter, event, or postcard. In my opinion, you should be doing this many times a day, besides your normal business, if it were showing homes or doing mortgage applications. Keeping in front of people daily is marketing and branding. But in my opinion, don't spam yourself, do it naturally and genuinely.




Day 15 - 12/15/10


Earlier today, I shared a post about Klout. Have you heard of it? Another tool to your arsenal when it comes to Social Networking.  Please read : Are you throwing your Klout around???


What is Klout?


















Now, in regards to this post, I am not telling you to do everything possible to get your Klout score up. This could backfire on you. Most kinds of systems and or programs can be gamed per se, manipulated. But Klout, if used correctly, could keep you on your feet on what you need to focus on daily.

Overall, please read my post : Are you throwing your Klout around?

It could be an eye opener, a new tool, and or some understanding of what Klout is. And if you think that post is good enough, please don't hesitate to click the suggest button. I hate self-promotion, but I think this is a good post for many to learn from. Or don't hesitate to reblog it. Thanks


Other than that, I just did my usual networking on facebook, on my fan page (updating consumers on today's interest rates), and my normal follow up calls. We also held our weekly Mortgage Myth Busters conference call and discussed a few things. We are going to be inviting guest bloggers on our site, preferably realtors from all over, to post once in a while. Please stay tuned for this after the holidays.

Jeff, I checked my Klout score a few months back and as I recall, I didn't do very well. I need to check it out again.

Jeff, signed up for Klout a few days ago on your recommendation.  HAve gotten the original post, and then once they added in Facebook, got a second report.  I have to study it a bit to understand the numbers a bit - and what the category 'Explorer' means.  Thanks fo rthe tip - I think I saw it on Twitter -- maybe on AR.  Either way it is a useful tool!

Jeff - I enjoy reading what others are doing to improve on their business. I think this challenge is awesome a it make people put into perspective what they are doing in their business for their future pipeline.

I hope that people are just taking advantage of the Points for the award and this is not a new awakening that it should have been done CONSTANTLY in the business.

DON... . okay, so you didn't do well... are you still connecting with consumers? Still getting some solid leads? That should be the main focus. I will be using Klout as a barometer, an indicator... to give me some food for thought. 

ALEXSANDRA... . yes, I think it could be a useful tool as an indicator... giving you ideas.. but don't put all your eggs in one basket just based on your number or trying to get your number higher. Look at the details that it gives you in the report and use that. That is just my opinion. And glad that you came across this then from my post or twitter... see, that does work in a way.  thanks

LOREENA... .  I have to be honest.. I have only read like 3 other posts for this challenge. You bring up a good point and I should read more, just to see if I can learn something and or pick up any tips.  In regards to the points? Hey, I did this challenge mostly for the points, because I do these things daily anyhow.. but this challenge did make me focus more on what i need to do, so this contest worked for me in several ways.  thanks

GABE.... . my pleasure.. let me know what you come up with.  thanks
